Getac has announced the launch of its new K120-ANSI and K120-Ex fully-rugged tablets. In order to work safely in hazardous environments, specialist notebooks and tablets limit electrical and thermal energy output to below dangerous levels and eliminate the risk of sparks.
The K120-ANSI and K120-Ex combine the features of Getac’s K120 tablet with anti-explosive, intrinsic safety technology that fully complies with stringent US and EU regulations that govern certification of products for hazardous locations. The K120-ANSI is fully certified for use in all C1D2 hazardous areas (US) while the K120-Ex is fully certified for use in all Zone 2/22 hazardous areas (EU). K120-Ex is also IECEx certified, which is accepted in a number of countries in Asia Pacific including Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and India.
“As digital transformation continues to drive major changes throughout sectors such as oil and gas, petrochemicals and pharmaceuticals, the need for devices that can operate efficiently in every corner of the plant, rig, refinery or factory is becoming increasingly important. With the K120-ANSI and K120-Ex, employees will be able to work in hazardous environments with full confidence, knowing they are protected by the latest intrinsic safety design technology and features,” said Rick Hwang, President – Rugged Business Unit, Getac Technology Corporation.
The K120-ANSI and K120-Ex feature an 8th generation Intel Core i5 and i7 Quad-core CPU. A 12.5” full HD widescreen display offers versatility, while LumiBond sunlight readable technology with rain and glove touch capability ensures screen visibility (1200nits of brightness) and productivity in even the most extreme conditions.
K120-ANSI and K120-Ex meet MIL-STD-810G military durability standard and IP65 for water and dust resistance. In addition, they boast drop resistance of up to 1.8 meters (six feet) and remain fully operational in temperatures ranging from -21°C to +63°C.
