CAT S61

Reliable Smartphone with Integrated Thermal Camera

The CAT S61 is equipped with a thermal imaging camera designed by FLIR, a world leader in thermal imaging technologies. This smartphone allows a thermal evaluation of a room and detects the quality of indoor air. It is the first smartphone in the world that has an integrated laser to measure distances.

Resistant until a depth of 3 meters for 1 hour

In addition to its thermal camera, this rugged smartphone is waterproof. It is resistant up to a depth of 3 meters for 1 hour and you can use it to take pictures underwater. Caterpillar exceeds the limits with this device. The CAT S61 is solid, robust and complies with the MIL-SPEC 810G military standard. It has been tested to resist falls on concrete up to 1.80 m. In addition to being solid, Caterpillar has made the smartphone completely waterproof and resistant to dust, sand and salt spray.

Equipped with the latest generation Corning Gorilla Glass

Caterpillar has equipped the S61 with the latest generation Corning Gorilla Glass 5 screen. It can be used with wet fingers or even with gloves. Finally, the versatility and brightness of this screen can be seen even in direct sunlight without difficulty.
