Toughbook G2

This morning Panasonic unveiled the Toughbook G2, the evolution of the best-selling fully rugged tablet (boasting MIL-STD-810H certification and IP65 protection) in the company's history, characterized by excellent versatility and designed with the needs of the future in terms of communication, use and security, without however overshadowing access to legacy systems.

Among the new features we find the introduction of the eSIM, as well as a general improvement in performance also due to the doubling of RAM memory and storage space, which guarantee a better experience of using design applications and CAD schemes. The work done on the Toughbook G2 display also allows you to enjoy improved brightness and greater security, thanks to the Microsoft Secured-Core certification. It will also be possible, in case a wider connectivity is required, to use an additional and interchangeable expansion slot for the insertion of readers and smart cards.

In addition to the Standard version, the Toughbook G2 is offered also in the Quick Release SSD model, designed for workers in sectors who need to protect sensitive data concerning their work. Eventually it is possible to add a removable backlit keyboard, which also includes a USB-A and a USB-C port: Panasonic has not spared itself even with regard to the additional accessories of the tablet, offering a wide range that includes, among others , vehicle docks, straps, shoulder straps and cases. Obviously most of the accessories already purchased for the Toughbook G1 and the Toughbook G20 will be compatible with the new Toughbook G2, thus facilitating the transition process.

This tablet is the ideal solution for various field jobs, including warehouse management, use as a vehicle terminal on forklifts, integration with barcode readers or with a thermal camera and for the management and planning of site operations. Operation is guaranteed by a battery whose duration can be extended up to 18.5 hours, which has the task of powering a device that contains a 10th generation Intel Core Quad Core processor, with Intel vPro technology and a RAM memory. 16 GB or 32 GB.

The Toughbook G2 can easily replace even a PC in the offices of a construction site, giving the possibility to transmit the video in 4K on two external screens. Breakdown personnel, train drivers and ground support personnel at airports find in this tablet an ideal solution for their daily support and maintenance operations, capable, according to Dirk Weigelt, Senior Product Marketing Manager at Panasonic Mobile Solution Business, to enter the hearts of field workers, being the next generation rugged device par excellence. Panasonic offers a standard 3-year warranty on the Toughbook G2, which is already available on the official store at the recommended price of € 2,450 + VAT.
