As IoT applications gradually penetrate the market, the need for different grades of rugged mobile computer equipment will gradually increase. Today, global professional rugged computer brand Getac released the S410. It uses 6th generation Intel Core processor to achieve a high computer performance and image processing capabilities.

The design of the next-generation S410 makes it 24% lighter and 33% slimmer than the previous model, and its ruggedness is superior. Rated MIL-STD 810G, the S410 offers 91cm drop prevention and IP51 dust and water protection.

It is suitable for those working in the defense, public security, field service, and automotive maintenance industries as well as professionals on the move.

"Rugged computers are designed to solve problems that users face, improve productivity, and lower the total cost of ownership. The brand new S410 combines the most advanced technologies to provide users with reliable ruggedness, mobility, as well as high-scalability options, making this model a very competitive semi-rugged laptop," said James Hwang, Chairman of Getac Technology Corporation.

Higher performance, greater productivity

The S410 works well with Windows 10. It offers low power consumption and faster boot speeds, and through Intel Turbo Boost Technology, the processor offers an automatic burst of speed when you need it, thereby boosting work efficiency.

Users can choose between different processors as needed. General users can choose between the Intel Core™ i3-6100U 2.3GHz and the Intel® Core i5-6200U 2.3GHz processors. Users with higher requirements for information security and processing can choose between the Intel®Core™ i5-6300U vPRO 2.4GHz and the Intel Core™ i7-6600U vPRO 2.6GHz processors, and add a second built-in hard drive (128GB/256GB SSD) for smoother multitasking.

For image processing, the S410 has a built-in Intel HD Graphics 520 card. Users who choose to upgrade to the NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 950M dedicated graphics card will enjoy a smoother video experience and fast processing of complex image data.

Robust outdoor applications

The S410 has a 14-inch HD (1366x768) display or 14-inch FHD display (1920 x 1080). Professionals who work long hours outdoors under bright light can choose the optional 1000 nits high brightness HD multi-touch screen or 800 nits high brightness FHD multi-touch screen.

Using the Getac LumiBond 2.0 panel technology, the touch screen is visible even under bright light. Users can also switch between touch modes including rain touch, glove touch, and pen mode, which represents an achievement for capacitive touch design.

Moreover, to ensure uninterrupted power while working outdoors, a single battery in the S410 can last up to 11 hours; adding a second battery extends battery life to 22 hours. The S410's WLAN supports 802.11a/b/g/n/ac standards and Bluetooth® v4.2 technology, providing users with fast network speeds.

Rich connectivity, high scalability

To meet the needs of professional users, the S410 offers multiple ports and expansion capabilities including four USB ports (USB 3.0x3, USB 2.0x1), RJ45, HDMI and VGA (optional) ports for connecting projection equipment, as well as a serial port (optional) for professional industries that for special connectors, such as national defense or automotive maintenance.

The expansion bay can be used for a DVD drive, a 2nd battery, or a PCMCIA or Express card as needed. An exclusive custom I/O port is reserved for a 2nd LAN, PowerShare USB 2.0, Rugged USB 2.0, or Rugged LAN port as selected by the user.

Multi-factor authentication for guaranteed security

The S410 is equipped with a 500GB hard drive, which can be upgraded to 1TB or with an optional SSD (128GB/256/512GB) to protect data from being damaged on impact. For information security, the S410 also offers multiple identity protection measures including Touch Fingerprint, smart card reader, contactless smartcard (optional), and TPM2.0, making the computer more secure. Vehicle Dock, Office Dock, RF Tri-Passthrough, backlit keyboard, and FHD webcam options offer even more comprehensive applications.
