IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Engineered to meet the growing needs of mobile transportation and field service professionals, the new Getac ZX70 is a 7” 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 to. The ZX70 is also protected by Getac’s industry-leading 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 via 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 we’ve ever built,” explains Scott Shainman, president of Getac. “Its fully rugged design, one-handed operation, extended battery life and Android platform are exactly what’s needed to work in the most extreme environments.”
The ZX70 features a 7” inch IPS, sunlight-readable, touchscreen display. Its 580 NIT ultra-bright screen, another best-in-class feature, enhances readability to further improve productivity and efficiency even in the toughest work environments. Responding effortlessly to every touch, Getac’s revolutionary 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 provides 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 provides 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 ideal 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. 1
Durability is synonymous with the Getac brand, and the ZX70 proudly continues that tradition. 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 the industry’s best three-year bumper-to-bumper warranty that covers everything, including accidental damage.
