Zebra Technologies Corp. launched the ET6x series of rugged Android tablets. Designed to help front-line workers in plants, yards, field service and utility environments, the ET6x series has a heated touch screen and vehicle dock for forklifts and other material handling vehicles.
The ET60 and ET65 are Zebra’s first 2-in-1 Android tablets with a friction-hinge keyboard that transforms the tablets into a laptop to make heavy data entry easy in the office and in the field. The products feature consumer styling that can handle harsh indoor and outdoor environments from sub-zero cold to extreme heat.
The tablets are dustproof, corrosion proof and tested for vibration, thermal shock, and solar radiation. Two of the most vulnerable tablet elements – the display and optional scanner exit window – are protected with shatter-and scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass.
The ET6x series is built to run enterprise applications in the most demanding environments. This includes warehouses where – according to Zebra’s Global Warehouse Vision Study – the implementation of rugged tablets is expected to increase by 92% over the next three years.
The ET6x series runs on the Qualcomm QCS6490 processor with artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, more memory, advanced range barcode scanning and replaceable batteries.
The 10-inch ET60/ET65 offers the fastest wireless connectivity available, supporting Wi-Fi 6E, Citizen’s Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) and advancing 5G technology for industrial environments that are replacing Wi-Fi for private WWAN networks. Enhanced with Zebra’s Mobility DNA software suite, the tablets are easy to implement, configure, manage, and tailor for use across a wide range of demanding applications and industries. The ET6x series leverages advanced security capabilities to safeguard business-critical systems and data, and are backed by best-in-class technical support from Zebra Services and the ecosystem of integrators and ISVs within the PartnerConnect program.
