Zebra ET5X tablets: A flexible solution to rugged reliability

Rugged mobility shouldn’t require a compromise. Get the right features to suit your use—with some forward thinking factored in—without giving up or giving in. You can find the right combination with the Zebra ET5X enterprise tablets, a flexible solution to rugged reliability. The Zebra ET51 and ET56 tablets balance the aesthetics of a consumer-grade tablet with all the performance power of an enterprise-grade, rugged mobile device. And Zebra has added a level of flexibility that demonstrates the need for strong ROI: Let customers customize in order to manage the total cost of ownership. Zebra offers you options to choose the operating system (Android or Windows), screen size (8.4-inch or 10.1-inch), scanning capability, and connectivity. You can customize the device to increase battery life and convert to a wearable device—and much more. One device, with so many ways to make it exactly what you need.

  • Rugged Good Looks - Workers like the familiarity of a consumer tablet, but it’s just not designed to handle the demanding enterprise environment, including the harsh conditions in these workplaces. The ET51 and ET56 look like those personal tablets—sleek and lightweight—but they’re engineered to be a lot tougher than they look. The thinnest and most lightweight of Zebra’s enterprise-grade tablets, the ET5X Series handles drops on concrete, from more than 3 feet. You can almost double that drop distance by adding the optional rugged frame. The screen is protected from scratch and shattering, thanks to the Corning Gorilla Glass. And if you’re relying on the enterprise tablet in a forklift, truck, or other vehicle, you’ll appreciate the ET5X Series’ vibration resistance.

  • Keep Your Gloves On - Whether you choose the 8.4-inch or 10.1-inch display, the tablet’s screen’s resolution presents an easy-to-read view, even in bright sunlight. Enter data on the touchscreen with a stylus or finger, even with gloves on. When the screen itself is wet, you can still enter data—another reason the Zebra ET5X is a flexible solution to rugged reliability.

  • Picture-Perfect Data Capture - Scanning is a key function for rugged mobile devices. Zebra is renowned for superior data capture. The ET51 and ET56 are equipped with the powerful SE4750 scan engine, giving you the ability to rapidly scan virtually any barcode, even the dirty, damaged, and poorly printed ones. These enterprise tablets pair with any Zebra Bluetooth scanner. Expand the value of the enterprise tablets as scanning tools when you add the Operations Case, which allows you to convert the tablet into a wearable mobile computer. Or add the expansion back hand-strap for easy carrying. For capturing high-res photos, signatures, videos, and documents, use the tablet’s integrated 13MP rear-facing camera.’
  • Lightning-Fast Wireless Connections - Slow data transfer is the enemy of productivity. You can count on the Zebra ET5X tablets to keep pace with your demands. Designed for unprecedented WiFi performance, the tablets deliver near-instant app response times and exceptional roaming performance. With Bluetooth 5.0, get twice the speed and 4 times the range, while using less power. Outside the 4 walls, the ET56’s data-only LTE provides fast, dependable cellular connections.
  • Perpetual Power - Battery power is a key element of a flexible solution to rugged reliability. Zebra designed the ET5X Series of enterprise tablets with the ability to keep running 24x7x365, and the internal battery is field replaceable. Keep it running through long shifts, without downtime. When you need to charge the battery, Zebra offers various options, from wall-mounted to desktop. The ShareCradle is a common base where you can charge all of your Zebra computers and tablets. And if you need to charge them up in vehicles, choose the vehicle cradle. In addition, the docking station lets you charge the tablet from any of the 3 ports: USB, Ethernet, and HDMI.
