Industry leading rugged reliability
The ZX10, like Getac’s other devices is built rugged from the ground up to provide reliability and peace of mind. MIL-STD-810H and IP66 certification means it can easily withstand drops of up to six feet, shocks, rain, vibration, dust, and liquid spillages. With an operating temperature range of -29°C to 63°C (-20°F~145°F) it delivers year-round usability. With all these built-in rugged features, the ZX10 is only 17.9mm thick and weighs just over 1kg, offering excellent portability and mobility in the field.
Ideally suited to key industry applications
The ZX10 is designed to meet the needs of public safety, utilities, energy, transport & logistics, manufacturing, automotive, and defence professionals who utilise Android-based devices. As part of Getac Select®, it is available in a range of industry specific builds that combine different features, accessories, and software utilities to help customers quickly solve everyday challenges. Some examples include:
- Data capture and ePCR access for emergency first responders
Emergency first responders require real-time access to electronic patient health records (ePCRs) to deliver appropriate care and medication, often in high pressure environments. The ZX10’s powerful connectivity options allow them to quickly access this information, while optional barcode/RFID and smart card readers help verify IDs, check operational procedures, and ensure patient confidentiality.
- Remote communications and asset maintenance for energy workers
Energy workers must regularly inspect and maintain assets in the field, but often require remote support from experts to do so effectively. The ZX10’s mobile connectivity, best-in-class 8MP front camera and 16MP rear camera and dedicated GPS lets workers interact with colleagues around the world in real-time, quickly share/exchange information, and complete tasks at the first time of asking. Dual LTE SIM card slots also let them quickly switch between two different carrier networks without having to swap SIM cards and staying connected conveniently.
- Optimising efficiency for warehouse employees and forklift drivers
Warehouse employees and forklift drivers need to collect and move goods between multiple different environments, ranging from internal cold storage and climate-controlled areas to external yards that are exposed to the weather and elements. The ZX10’s compact yet rugged design with wide operating temperature range means it can seamlessly transition between these environments without fear of damage or disruption.The optional barcode/RFID-reader and range of programmable buttons also make it quick and easy to identify/process items in a matter of seconds.
Powerful operational efficiency
The ZX10’s combination of Android 11 OS, Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Mobile Platform, and Adreno™ 512 GPU delivers a seamless user experience, enabling efficient workflow in a wide range of field scenarios. Dual hot-swappable batteries ensure full-shift operation. The LumiBond® sunlight readable display (boasting 800nits of brightness) with rain and glove touch capability, helps maintain productivity in a range of weather conditions. The ZX10 also has options of up to 6GB LPDDR4 RAM and 128GB storage to help customers prepare for future industry demands.
Strong field communications
An 8MP front camera and best-in-class 16MP rear camera deliver high-quality photo/video capture, while dual integrated microphones filter out loud background noise for enhanced audio quality. Elsewhere, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth (v5.0), dedicated GPS and an optional 4G LTE module offers rapid data transfer and location positioning capabilities in remote field locations. Dual LTE SIM card slots allow field workers to quickly switch between two 4G network carriers. The support to CBRS private network further increases operational flexibility.
The ZX10 is available in March 2022.
