About Panasonic Toughpad Tablets

Toughpad tablets are designed for mission-critical and highly mobile workers in fields such as the military, oil and gas, construction, healthcare, public safety, utilities, retail, maintenance, supply chain logistics and insurance. The devices are ideal for a host of usage scenarios, including inventory control, eForms, field sales, field service, route delivery, eCitations, electronic medical records, inspections, mobile point-of-sales and GIS.


Toughpad tablets are MIL-STD-810G tested for resistance to drops, fluid ingress and extreme temperatures to assure they deliver reliable performance under circumstances that render typical tablets non-operational. Devices feature daylight viewable screens, user-replaceable or serviceable batteries, a stylus for signature capture and handwriting (on the FZ-G1 and FZ-A1), and multiple options for peripheral connectivity.
