Pepperl+Fuchs Presents New Tab-IND Industrial Tablet Series for Non-Ex Applications


Customized Tablet Solutions for the Intralogistics, Manufacturing, and Automotive Industries as well as for Outdoor Use

Tab-IND industrial tablet series
The Windows-based devices of the Tab-IND series are available with an 8-inch and 10-inch display.

In addition to the constantly growing enterprise mobility portfolio, Pepperl+Fuchs and its Finnish subsidiary Aava Mobile Oy are introducing a rugged tablet series in accordance with MIL-STD-810H for use in the industry. The slim Windows-based devices in the Tab-IND series are available with an 8-inch and 10-inch display and offer numerous customization options as well as an extensive range of accessories.

User-Friendliness and Safety as The Top Priority

From the size to the features, the industrial-grade tablets can be adapted to customer- and application-specific requirements in line with the build-to-order principle. Tab-IND devices are equipped with a 13 MP camera and a bright display with 700 and 800 cd/m², which can also be operated with a pen or gloves. With a temperature range of -20 ... +50 °C, the tablets are equally suitable for industrial use and outdoor applications in harsh environments.

All devices of the Tab-IND series natively support the latest mobile communication standards such as Wi-Fi® 6E, Bluetooth® 5.3 BLE, 5G, or LTE and impress across the board terms of security: in addition to a fingerprint sensor for fast authentication, an NFC reader (Near Field Communication) for noncontact data transfer has also been integrated into the front screen. In combination with the large display, the NFC module can be used for secure access and identity control for protected areas and system parts.

The Push-to-Talk over Cellular function (PoC) and an individually programmable button round off the range of functions.

Ready for Use in Intra- and Transport Logistics

Additional accessories such as the compatible scanner frame extend the tablet's functionality for scanning barcodes, tracking transports and picking goods in warehouses. With these features, the Tab-IND is ideally equipped for worldwide use in intra- and transport logistics. Due to the smart back function on the back of the device, users can add further add-ons such as an external battery to extend the runtime or special holders to the tablet. Customer-specific extensions to the range of functions based on smart back technology such as the addition of communication interfaces like Industrial Ethernet or IO-Link can also be implemented.

In addition, an IO dock for use with external devices and displays is available, allowing users to work in either mobile or desktop mode.

The Tab-IND industrial tablets are ideally suited for use in intralogistics.

Guaranteed Service and Long-Term Availability

Pepperl+Fuchs pays particular attention to the special challenges of industrial companies. In addition to the choice of different display sizes, features and accessories, long-term device availability (at least 5 years) and regular software updates are guaranteed.

Comprehensive service in the respective national language is our top priority. Especially for companies that use tablets in industrial environments as well as in hazardous areas, it is an advantage to be able to obtain all devices from a single source.

European Development and Know-How

Development, design and production control are carried out in Europe by the Pepperl+Fuchs subsidiary Aava Mobile, whose headquarters are located in Oulu in northern Finland. Aava Mobile has many years of expertise in the development and production of industrial tablets, which are mainly marketed as OEM products by well-known suppliers. The new series complements the existing mobile device portfolio of the rugged Tab-Ex and Smart-Ex series for hazardous areas. Pepperl+Fuchs can therefore  further combine its expertise and offer customers comprehensive system solutions and services from a single source.
