Captec is a high technology designer and manufacturer of specialised, certified and industrial computers, engineered to meet the requirements of any application, irrespective of complexity, environmental or operational demands. Its computer platforms keep its customers’ applications running reliably anywhere.

The team is delighted to have been recognised for the Queen’s Award for Innovation, which represents their second award, following a Queen’s Award for Enterprise-Export awarded in 2016.

Captec has been innovating and developing specialist computers since 1985, during which time it has grown to a recognised international industry leader with headquarters in Hampshire and a North American subsidiary in Canada. Working closely with a diverse set of customers in seven sectors, Captec is constantly innovating and developing market leading computers for applications in transport, energy, healthcare, automation, communications, leisure and defence and security.

Captec computers cover end-to-end size and performance requirements, from small low power Internet of Things (IoT), through edge computers, mobile tablets, rack-mounted computers, to high performance advanced rack based architectures. Captec computers are engineered to operate reliably in any environments, from the most hostile in the theatre of war, to the most clinical in oncology treatment in healthcare, and everything in between.

Captec’s award specifically recognises its innovations in creating enterprise level tablet platforms for workflow automation. Combining a customised cost effective tablet, advanced power management electronics, extended battery power pack and ergonomic protective enclosure.

The innovation also included the development of group charging stations capable of cable-free charging of 16 to 60 tablets concurrently, while also connected to wired Ethernet for updates and diagnostics while charging. To achieve the commercial viability of these solutions, Captec further innovated its manufacturing processes, servicing and supply chain models. These tablets have been deployed with extensive commercial success in leisure both in the UK and North America, and are being further marketed into healthcare, education and mobile workforce automation.
