Panasonic Toughpad FZ-E1 Overview
Panasonic Toughpad products are built to withstand any workplace environment, from the icy Arctic tundra to hot and sandy deserts. No matter where you need complete connectivity, a Panasonic Toughpad will get you the results you need.
Designed for mobile workers in transportation & logistics, defence, emergency services, utilities, retail and manufacturing who need voice access, the FZ-E1 can be put to use anywhere.
Powered by Windows Embedded 8.1 Handheld, the FZ-E1 delivers an unprecedented level of mobile communication, with compatibility for all major productivity applications and any bespoke Microsoft compatible software that may be required to run.
Top level performance hardware is provided by the 2.3GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor. This is backed up by a design robust enough to meet military standard MIL-STD-810G and so consistently take on 3m drops to solid concrete and provide complete ingress protection from dust, sand and water (up to 30 minutes submerged!)
The robust qualities of the FZ-E1 don't end there though, it can also withstand directed high pressure jets of water and even contains a built-in heater that activates at low temperatures, meaning the handset is cleared for use at down to -4° F.
The capacitive touch screen supports 10 point multitouch and has been engineered to be sunlight viewable, as well as incorporating a 'glove mode' so it can continue to be used even if the user is wearing thick gloves. A 'rain-sensing' touch mode will also recognise the difference between water and physical touch to allow for use in wet environments.
14 hours of continuous battery life is provided by the huge 6,200 mAh Li-ion battery pack - this is also hot-swappable - you can swap an empty battery for a charged one due to a built in rechargeable failsafe bridge battery (30-120 seconds). The quick charge power supplies and docks from Panasonic will also bring you up to 50% capacity in just one hour.
Every modern connectivity option is covered with the FZ-E1. WiFi 802.11 versions a/b/g/n/ac for 2.4/5GHz are compatible, along with cellular GSM 4G LTE, HSPA+, UMTS, EDGE, GPRS and also CDMA. Add in to the mix NFC, A-GPS, Bluetooth and USB Host and you have a full suite of services.
Securty is a concern for all businesses, so Panasonic have also ensured that the FZ-E1 is compliant to FIPS140-2 level-1 and also has built-in ARM® TrustZone®.
