For applications that require quick and easy data acquisition, companies are turning to tablet solutions. The advantages are obvious: the devices are easy to operate, intuitive to use, and enable users to enter data, take photos, and access important documents on the go.
To round out its tablet portfolio, the Pepperl+Fuchs brand ecom, in cooperation with Samsung, has launched the Tab-Ex® Pro—the world's first Android tablet with a 10-inch display for applications in Zone 2/22 and Div. 2 hazardous areas. The rugged, slim and lightweight tablet proves to be the ideal companion for mobile workers in the field and for implementing IIoT applications. Connected to a screen and keyboard, the Tab-Ex® Pro can even double as a desktop computer if desired. This provides companies with a cost-effective alternative to a standard desktop PC, offering the best of both worlds.
Developed based on the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active Pro, the Tab-Ex® Pro is also equipped with a Google ARCore for implementing augmented reality applications, a facial recognition function, and a powerful processor (Qualcomm SDM670 Octa-Core 64 bit 2.0 GHz, 1.7 GHz). In addition, the Samsung KNOX security platform and the latest Android operating system ensure the highest level of data and device security.
The large, 10-inch multi-touch display has excellent readability, even in direct light, and can be operated easily with an S Pen or when wearing gloves. This makes the Tab-Ex® Pro ideal for demanding applications, for accessing web-based content such as construction drawings, and for using apps that require a larger display. If necessary, the tablet can be connected to a large screen and a keyboard using the Samsung DeX function (desktop experience function), which offers users a complete desktop experience.
A powerful, replaceable 7,400-mAh battery with pogo pin charging and run times of up to 15 hours enables reliable use of the Tab-Ex® Pro in the field. Peripherals such as different headsets, remote speaker microphones, and the possibility of pairing the device with the ecom Smart-Ex Watch 01 smartwatch extend the functional range of the tablet. The Tab-Ex® Pro comes with programmable (emergency) buttons and is also available without a camera upon request.
The Tab-Ex® 02 8-inch tablet and the Tab-Ex® Pro 10-inch tablet come with innovative features like augmented reality that make Industry 4.0 / IIoT applications easy to implement.
