mobile computer Getac

Mobile computer: Engineered to meet the growing needs of mobile transportation and field service professionals, the new Getac ZX70 is a 7-in. fully rugged Android tablet designed for comfortable one-handed use in remote and challenging environments. Rugged to the core, its IP67 and MIL-STD 810G certification with best-in-class battery life allow it to go wherever you need it. The ZX70 is also protected by Getac’s three-year, bumper-to-bumper warranty.

The ZX70 is powered by the Android 6.0 operating system, making the tablet easy to use while providing access to millions of existing apps through the Google Play store. And because it runs on the Android platform, custom apps can be developed for download and use.

The ZX70 was built with field professionals in mind and is one of the most compact and mobile rugged tablets Getac has built, it’s reported. Its fully rugged design, one-handed operation, extended battery life and Android platform are what is needed to work in extreme environments.

The ZX70 features a 7- in. IPS, sunlight-readable, touchscreen display. Its 580 NIT ultra-bright screen enhances readability to further improve productivity and efficiency even in the toughest work environments. Responding effortlessly to every touch, Getac’s LumiBond 2.0 touchscreen technology uses an optically clear resin to bond the display glass to the touch panel and LCD to create a single panel that is more durable and readable. LumiBond is cited to provide better contrast and crisper colors than any other rugged tablet display. It features two advanced touch modes (Touch/Rain, Glove/Pen), and the included hard-tip stylus enables users to capture signatures and take precise notes on drawings, maps and documents.

Full-shift battery life is essential for field technicians working in environments well beyond the nearest power outlet. The ZX70 is cited to provide the best battery runtime performance in its class, delivering ample power to move freely and be productive anywhere.

With a Full HD webcam, the tablet offers convenient video conferencing, training and field diagnostics. Its 8MP rear camera (with autofocus and flash) delivers high-resolution still images and is especially useful for capturing data and documenting conditions in the field. Together, both cameras provide a compact solution for remote communications and information sharing with the home office or other field technicians, directly from the job site.

The ZX70 is a purpose-built tool with a host of configurable options to fit the way field techs work, including dedicated GPS + 4G LTE cellular data, WiFi, 1D/2D barcode reader and NFC/RFID. The tablet includes 2GB of on-board storage expandable to 4GB, and a micro SD card slot permits expansive storage and backup options.

Certified for hazardous locations, the ZX70 fully rugged tablet offers optional ATEX and IECEx 2/22 certification for use in potentially explosive atmospheres (ATEX certification requirement must be specified at time of purchase).

MIL-STD 810G-certified for drops up to six feet, IP67-certified for liquid submersion to 1 meter for 30 minutes and endurance under extreme temperatures from -6°F to 140°F (operating temperature) and -40°F to 160°F (storage temperature) all make the ZX70 an ideal tablet for mobile field professionals.

The ZX70 fully rugged tablet is backed by a three-year bumper-to-bumper warranty that covers everything, including accidental damage.
