World's Most Rugged Tablet Is Built To be Tough, Both Inside And Out
getac technology corporation

Getac UK today announced the launch of a new fully rugged 10” tablet – the E110 – offering field users one of the lightest and longest running rugged devices on the market.

Designed specifically for operators working in the public safety, transport, logistics and utility sectors, the touch screen device includes a 10.1 inch (1366 x 768) HD sunlight-readable display. The thin and light (1.6kg / 3.52lbs) device also offers Lifesupport™ hot-swappable battery operation to extend operating time out in the field.

Peter Molyneux, Vice President Getac UK, says the device will allow operators to work in the field for extended periods while maintaining seamless connectivity to central operations.

“The E110 is one of the most versatile devices in the Getac range – able to perform numerous data capture operations in even the toughest of conditions,” Mr Molyneux says.

The device comes with WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity as standard and offers users the ability to add contactless high-frequency RFID and smart card readers, a 3MP auto-focus camera, and GPS SiRFstarIV™.

Mr Molyneux says the E110 includes Getac's QuadraClear™ screen technology, offering a better contrast ratio and a wider viewing angle than its nearest competitors. The higher colour saturation and a viewing angle of more than 160° ensure excellent visibility out in the field and the device is particularly suited to operators who require an in-vehicle solution.

"The E110 delivers a world-class in-vehicle solution because of its easy docking station, its multi-touch screen and its programmable function key, making it an excellent navigation and communication device for field-based staff." The units's programmable function key can be configured to suit individual operational requirements. The hot-swappable battery ability means that the device will remain operational for 180 seconds whilst users change the battery. This allows the unit's working hours to be extended without users having to switch off the device and without affecting productivity.

Getac's unique fanless design also provides users with a more stable and reliable device in harsh conditions, as CPU heat is dispersed evenly rather than relying on a fan – which can increase the risk of overheating.

“We have built this device to ensure that operators have tablet technology that allows them to maximise their productivity even in the most demanding environments,” Mr Molyneux says.

The unit is IP65 and MIL-STD-810G rated, with an ability to survive three feet drops, vibrations, and capacity to work in temperatures from -21°C to 60°C. The E110 also includes an Intel® Atom™ N2800 1.86 GHz CPU and 64GB SSD storage.
