Getac launches largest fully rugged tablet to enhance performance and security for mobile workers
Getac today launches its A140 fully rugged tablet – the largest, most secure tablet the company has ever produced. Designed together with a leading automotive manufacturer, the tablet is equipped with a 14-inch full HD, 1000 NITs sunlight readable display. Available with best-in-class performance Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, dual hot-swappable batteries for continuous use, and a suite of security features, it is the most robust, purpose-built fully rugged tablet available today.
“Working with our customers, Getac is continuing to develop devices that really meet their evolving needs. Now more than ever, enterprises are concerned with giving mobile workers rapid secure access to critical information, while working in a diverse range of challenging environments,” explains Chris Bye, President of Getac, UK. “The A140 delivers those capabilities to our customers.”
“Take for instance automotive technicians,” continues Bye. “With increased vehicle functionality comes increased complexity, so technicians need fast performance, the ability to quickly see more data displayed and to operate technology with disposable gloves or other protective wear. They are constantly on the move, so the A140’s optional multifunction hard handle serves as a support stand and cradle when stationary, and an effective way to grab-and-go when time is critical.”
The Getac A140 offers the most robust suite of security features of any fully rugged tablet, such as TPM 2.0, which monitors and protects system start-ups by ensuring the device is tamper-free before releasing control to the operating system. Optional Absolute DDS allows the user to remotely disable the system if it is ever lost or stolen. Multifactor authentication options, including fingerprint, RFID or SmartCard readers, allow users to take full advantage of Microsoft Windows 10 identity and access control features, including Windows Hello, Microsoft Passport and Credential Guard.
Taking full advantage of Intel’s 6th Generation Skylake Core i5 and i7 processors, the A140 delivers the highest performance in its class. Combined with Intel 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2 technology, and a hot-swappable battery design, users will experience maximum around-the-clock performance.
The large sunlight readable HD display incorporates Getac’s revolutionary LumiBond®2.0 touch screen technology, that is more durable and readable and supports touch, rain, glove and pen touch modes.
Durability is synonymous with the Getac brand, and the A140 fully rugged tablet continues the tradition. For convenient use by technicians whatever their environment, the device has been ergonomically designed with rugged mobility in mind. The tablet is MIL-STD810G and IP65-certified to survive drops up to four feet and survive rain, moisture, vibrations, shock and extreme temperatures from -21°C to 60°C (operating temperature) and -40°C to 71°C (storage temperature).
The A140 comes with a range of options, including a full HD webcam for crystal-clear video conferencing, an 8MP rear camera with LED flash for crisp images and video, and 4G LTE wireless for fast and reliable connectivity. The optional multifunction hard handle serves as a support stand and cradle when working and an effective way to grab-and-go when time is critical. For vehicle use, a new slim-profile vehicle dock maximises cab space and allows tri-pass-through antenna ports to simultaneously connect to high-gain WWAN, WLAN and roof-mounted GPS antennas.
The A140 is backed by Getac’s industry-best, three-year bumper-to-bumper warranty that includes accidental damage and environmental exposure.
