New rugged handheld tablets

Panasonic has expanded its Toughpad line with two new business-ready fully- rugged handheld tablets that are designed to bring unprecedented rugged reliability, efficiency and productivity to users.

The new Panasonic 5” Toughpad can be used in heavy gloves, in the rain or in direct sunlight to fulfill a wide range of applications across transport and logistics, retail and hospitality, manufacturing and aviation, utilities, field services, government and emergency services.

The Toughpad FZ-E1, powered by Windows Embedded 8.1 Handheld, and the Toughpad FZ-X1, running on the Android 4.2.2 operating system, are designed to replace multiple devices such as traditional tablets, handhelds or smartphones.

As well as delivering rugged performance in extreme operating environments where other devices would fail, features include the combination of large-screen design and full enterprise-grade Windows functionality; voice and data connectivity; long-life hot-swappable batteries, and configuration options such as an integrated 1D/2D barcode reader and an attachable magnetic stripe reader.

The FZ-E1 and FZ-X1 handheld tablets go beyond MIL-STG-810G specifications and are designed to resist drops of up to 3m onto concrete, submersion in up to 1.5m of water (IP68 certification), temperatures ranging from -20°C to 60°C (thanks to a built-in heater) and are certified against dust, impact, shock, vibration, altitude and extreme humidity.
