GETAC RUGGED DEVICES: BUILT FOR ANY EMERGENCY ENVIRONMENT
22 November 2012
Getac is exhibiting a range of fully rugged, next generation technology at the Emergency Services Show in Stoneleigh, Coventry on 21st - 22nd November 2012. Featured on the stand this year is the performance-enhanced V200, the ultrafast X500 mobile server and Getac’s fully rugged Android tablet, the Z710.
Visitors to stand 55, in Hall 2, can check out the V200 convertible notebook which offers a 12.1” sunlight-readable screen for the display of routes and schematics with optimum clarity, even in direct sunlight. The device comes with full-size mechanical keyboard as standard and can be securely mounted on an in-vehicle docking station for easy operation whilst on the move.
The V200 is guaranteed to operate in the most difficult conditions and can even be used as a tablet in the field. With its high-speed, integrated GPS, 3G, Wifi and Bluetooth, the notebook provides fast access to critical emergency service data and allows crews to communicate effectively with base. With built-in fingerprint biometrics the device ensures that only authorised crew access encrypted data.
Also on display is Getac’s 15.6’’ X500 fully rugged mobile server. The X500 comes complete with the latest generation of Intel® Core™ processor – the i7 vPro – and high performance NVIDIA® GeForce® graphic controller.
The portable device can rapidly analyse intelligence data acquired from multiple mobile computing devices to allow command and control centres to make informed decisions.
Heading up the tablet range is Getac’s new Z710 7-inch Android tablet, the only fully rugged tablet offering glove-friendly touchscreen. The Z710’s screen is constructed using Getac’s proprietary LumiBondTM technology together with Gorilla® Glass, a capacitive touch sensor and an LED panel to provide unprecedented touch sensitivity for busy crews who need to operate equipment without the inconvenience of removing gloves. The device also has a 5MP camera with optional 1D/2D barcode and high frequency RFID reader.
The ultimate Z710 mobile data terminal (MDT) will also enable real-time communication of mission-critical information to field personnel, and is built to withstand the toughest of emergency environments: it is fully rugged, IP65 certified (protected against dust and water), and MIL-STD-810G certified – able to operate in temperatures from -20 oC to 50 oC.
“Getac’s new generation of products are designed and engineered to enhance the performance of the emergency professional, just when it’s needed most,” said Peter Molyneux, President Getac UK. “Our rugged technology includes a number of features which mean emergency crews can focus on the mission-critical tasks, without worrying about the reliability and performance of their devices.”
