Getac has announced its fourth generation F110 fully rugged tablet, designed to meet the needs of field service professionals operating in the most challenging of environments. The 11.5 inch F110 combines the latest Intel® 7th generation (Kaby Lake) processors and new multi-layer security features with a fully rugged design to create the highest performing and most secure fully rugged tablet in the market.
Today, organisations are more at risk than ever to data theft and malicious attack, so the F110 supports a variety of security features built into Windows 10. Machine start-up monitoring and protection (with TPM 2.0) ensures the device is tamper-free before releasing control to the operating system, while BitLocker protects data at rest, in use and in transit. Opal 2.0 SSD’s advanced hardware-based self-encryption technology protects confidential data stored in the drive from unauthorised access. In the event the system is lost or stolen, optional Absolute DDS will allow it to be disabled remotely. The F110 also includes a range of multi-factor authentication options for more convenient and secure login, such as fingerprint reader, smart card reader and dual frequency RFID reader, as well as Windows Hello biometric recognition, Microsoft Passport and Credential Guard for additional protection.
One of the most significant additions to the next gen F110 is its optional infrared (IR) camera that supports facial recognition. It delivers consistent images across different lighting conditions, which improves accuracy and robustness of the facial recognition system. IR illumination allows the camera to capture additional information to determine if an object being sensed is an actual person’s face or simply a photograph of an authorised user. Video conferencing and data capture are easy with an optional Full HD webcam, 8MP autofocus camera and 1D/2D barcode reader.
Chris Bye, President, Getac UK comments; “Field workers are increasingly demanding faster, more secure access to data and applications while working in ever more challenging environments. Getac is continuing to make computing easier and more efficient so such workers can focus on the task in hand. The F110 has been designed to deliver the power, security and reliability needed to drive efficiencies and improve productivity.”
The F110’s best-in-class performance is delivered by Intel® Kaby Lake CoreTM i7 and i5 processors for increased computing performance and more efficient power usage. By using Intel HD Graphics 620, new generation Wi-Fi (802.11ac), Bluetooth 4.2 and a hot-swappable battery design, users can experience optimal mobile performance. The sunlight-readable 11.6” LumiBond® 2.0 display delivers a responsive 10-point touch experience in a thin, light form factor. Rain, glove and pen (hard-tip stylus) touch modes provide just the right sensitivity for virtually any environment, while the spacious screen provides ample space for applications with minimal scrolling.
Durability is synonymous with the Getac brand, and F110 continues the tradition. The fully rugged tablet is MIL-STD810G and IP65-certified to survive drops up to four feet and endure rain, moisture, vibrations, shock and extreme temperatures from -21°C to 60°C (operating temperature) and -51°C to 71°C (storage temperature). The F110 is backed by Getac’s industry-best, three-year bumper-to-bumper warranty which includes damage that occurs due to accidents and environmental exposure.
The F110 also has vehicle docks available that allow simultaneous connection to high-gain WWAN, WLAN and GPS roof-mounted antennas. Optional Discrete GPS (with GLONASS option) provides high-performance location awareness.
