Getac releases updated fully-rugged tablet

14 Sep 2020

Getac has launched the UX10, a fully-rugged tablet for challenging work environments such as those found in the public safety, utilities, natural resources and manufacturing industries.

The tablet delivers improved performance, storage, connectivity and rugged reliability over its predecessor in a new chassis. 

Key features include a 10th Gen Intel Quad-core i5 or i7 processor and PCIe NVMe SSD storage technology, for up to six times faster speeds than SATA SSD, while the latest Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200 module ensures more stable and reliable connectivity in dense, congested environments.

In addition, the UX10 boasts enhanced rugged protection, with MIL-STD-810H certification and drop resistance of up to 6-foot while in tablet mode, for added peace of mind.

The UX10 is part of the Getac Select programme, which combines pre-configured rugged devices, software, accessories and professional services into a series of solutions optimised for individual applications and user groups.

Each solution draws on customer feedback and Getac’s industry experience to create combinations of products and services as a single offering. 

One example of this is the next generation UX10-EX, designed to be a highly-effective field services solution for engineers and technicians in the energy, natural resources and utilities industries. 

Getac KeyWedge Barcode Reader Utility, Getac Driving Safety Utility and Getac Device Monitoring System (GDMS) are all available as individual options for the UX10 under the Getac Select programme.

Incorporating the latest intrinsically safe technology, the device fully meets stringent ATEX/IECEx standards for use in Zone 2/22 hazardous and potentially explosive environments, includes a range of connectivity options and all-weather functionality.

Three key software utilities also available for use alongside the UX10 are Getac’s KeyWedge Barcode Reader Utility, Getac Driving Safety Utility and Getac Device Monitoring System (GDMS).

“At Getac, we combine customer feedback with our domain knowledge and understanding of user applications to develop solutions for the users’ daily challenges. That is the spirit of Getac Select. With the next generation UX10 we have created a mobile solution that offers better productivity and return on investment for professionals across a wide range of industries,” says Getac rugged and video solution business group president Rick Hwang.

The tablet is available now. 

Earlier this year, Getac released the B360 fully-rugged laptop with 5G capability, a full HD display and Intel’s 10th generation core processor. 

The B360 is IP66 rated to protect from dust ingress, as well as high-pressure water jets and spillages. 

The device can also withstand drops of up to six feet when in operation, and the latest MIL-STD 810H certification gives users complete confidence in its rugged reliability.

It includes dual hot-swappable batteries as standard; optional GPS for mapping, surveying, and tracking in the field; and an optional barcode reader for intelligence gathering at the scene of an incident.
