TELFORD, 26 January 2021: Getac has today announced the launch of its next-generation S410, a highly configurable, semi-rugged laptop aimed at utilities professionals working in challenging indoor and outdoor environments.
Brilliant all-day performance
The new S410 offers upgraded all-day performance, a brilliant new display and enhanced memory and processing power, all in Getac’s market-proven form factor. Key features include the 11th Generation Intel® Core™ i5/i7 Processors with integrated Intel® Iris® Xe Graphics, PCIe NVMe SSD as default and user-removable storage, for improved efficiency during daily workflows and graphics-intensive tasks.
The S410 also features cutting-edge connectivity, thanks to its Intel® Wi-Fi 6 AX201 module that supports the new IEEE 802.11ax standard. The result is smooth streaming of high-resolution video, fewer dropped connections and faster connections at farther distances from a wireless router. Thunderbolt™ 4 technology provides ultra-fast data transfer speeds, while also making it easier to share data with other devices.
A brighter screen (up to 1,000 nits), coupled with LumiBond® 2.0 Technology, ensures comfortable outdoor viewing, even when under direct sunlight. Furthermore, the S410 can accommodate up to three hot swappable batteries, ensuring zero downtime from shift to shift. A backlit keyboard makes work in low-light environments easier, while a larger touchpad enables a smooth user experience with fewer input errors.
As expected with Getac ruggedised products, the S410 is MIL-STD-810H certified, resists a three-foot drop, and sports a wide operating temperature range from -29°C to 63°C (-20°F to 145°F). Compliance with the IP53 rating allows users to operate in dusty and light rain conditions without fear of damaging the unit.
Reliable connectivity and safety for utility fieldwork
Asset management for utilities can be challenging as constant remote access to a central database is needed to synchronise information, manage and communicate with your workforce, and carry out GIS mapping. With the S410, service technicians in the field can obtain schematics, generate purchase orders, check inventory, and even video chat with remote experts to quickly solve problems, thanks to integrated WLAN/BT/WWAN/GPS. Getac also works with solution partners to provide connectivity management with built-in security. Multiple I/O configurations are available to accommodate different field workers’ needs and connectivity requirements.
Getac Select® program – tailored for industry needs
The S410 is part of the Getac Select® program, which combines pre-configured rugged devices, software, accessories, and professional services into a total solution optimised for both individual applications and user groups. Key software utilities available for use alongside the S410 are the Getac Driving Safety Utility, and Getac Device Monitoring System (GDMS).1
Extensive Configurable Options
Extensive pre-configured options make the S410 uniquely suited to the demands of utilities industry professionals, whether on-site with customers or inspecting assets in the field.
Optimise Uptime and Reliability with Getac Device Monitoring System (GDMS)
The Getac Device Monitoring System (GDMS) helps organisations maintain operational efficiency of their installed Getac devices. GDMS, part of the Getac Select® program, is a software solution that monitors deployed devices, spotting potential issues before they impact field personnel, thus proactively reducing the risk of downtime.
For companies without dedicated IT resources that lack time or device admin personnel, Getac offers a premium service called Getac Device Monitoring System Enterprise Plus (GDMS E+)2, where trained experts monitor Getac hardware and software in use by our customers.
“With the new Getac S410, we have responded to a great demand for a semi-rugged laptop that adapts easily to rapidly-changing conditions, across a wide range of applications,” says Chris Bye, President, Getac UK Ltd. “Our ongoing commitments to technology advancement, professional service, and reliability offer our utilities customers peace of mind when handling complex fieldwork.”
