Hardware update for the DT300Y series from DT Research: The rugged 2-in-1 tablets now with new Tiger Lake CPUs and Wi-Fi 6
An alternative to laptops or panel PCs with Intel Core processors of the 11th generation, WLANax/Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, hot-swappable batteries and chip card readers
The DT300Y rugged tablet series from DT Research is one of the most successful tablets for mobile use in industry, logistics or off-road. New powerful Intel Core i processors of the 11th generation with four or six cores now ensure even more speed, while the WLANax ensures higher data rates and more stability, especially in heavily frequented networks. With the integrated chip card reader, Ethernet, Bluetooth 5.2 and many options such as cameras, barcode scanners, NFC readers, UHF RFID readers and attachable keyboards, the tablets guarantee reliable data acquisition and transmission even in critical environments. For example, they also represent a mobile alternative to permanently installed panel PCs for machine control (“mobile HMI”). Windows 10 IoT Enterprise LTSC / Windows 10 Pro / Windows 11 Pro or Ubuntu Linux is used as the operating system.
Portable like a small laptop
The DT300Y rugged tablet series from DT Research is primarily designed for use in harsh, demanding industrial environments. It is used particularly frequently, for example, in the production of vehicles, controlling a PLC in mechanical engineering, in maintenance, for predictive maintenance applications or in the military. The tablet is either connected directly to a docking station on the machine or used as a mobile HMI. With a weight between 1.3 and 1.8 kg and a case thickness of around 2 cm, the three systems of the DT300Y series are at least as portable as an industrial laptop.
Designed for compute and memory intensive applications
Inside, there are 11th generation Intel Core i processors with four or six cores, which use up to 32 GB of RAM and an SSD with up to 2 TB. Models with an inexpensive Pentium Gold CPU are also available for applications that do not require as much data processing. The internal flash-based storage can be chosen between 256 GB and 2 TB. In combination with the 11th generation GPU, this even allows very computationally and memory-intensive applications such as 3D graphics and forensics. Thanks to Windows or Ubuntu, the tablets of the D300Y series can be easily integrated into existing IT infrastructures.
Unlike standard tablets, which typically don’t have a long lifespan in harsh conditions, the 300Y series tablets are well adapted to demanding environments. Fully rugged-certified according to IP65, MIL-STD-810G and MIL-STD-461F, they are not only largely protected against vibrations and falls, they are also waterproof and dustproof and electromagnetically compatible. All important industrial interfaces are available for communication with peripherals or network, including Ethernet (GB-LAN), USB-C, USB 3.0. External devices can be integrated wirelessly with Bluetooth 5.2. The new 802.11ax protocol, Wi-Fi 6 for short, brings faster Wi-Fi, especially in heavily frequented networks.
Employees log on to the tablet easily and securely using their standard access cards such as company ID cards or inductive Mifare and Legic cards via a full-size chip card slot that accepts the entire chip card, as well as an optional integrated tag reader. For those who have to work online “always and everywhere”, the DT300Y series is optionally available with an LTE / 5G module and a GPS module.
Available in three sizes
The tablets are available in a 10.1, 11.6 or 13.3 inch form factor. The three different screen sizes enable the right resolution for every purpose and thus ensure visually high-quality communication with production systems with a wide variety of requirements.
Attachable keyboard in three sizes
A wall or vehicle mount and a pluggable full German/ US- keyboard with integrated docking station (2x USB, 1x Ethernet, 1x HDMI and USB-C) enable applications that go far beyond the usual features of laptops or panel PCs in the HMI area. A separate, fully-fledged, attachable keyboard is available for each size of the three 2-in-1 tablets, which is firmly connected to the tablet and can be folded onto the display. This turns the tablet into a fully-fledged laptop in no time.
Readable even in direct light
With a brightness of up to 1,000 cd/m2 and a full HD resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 and 1,920 x 1,200 pixels, the touchscreens ensure good readability with high-contrast image quality even in direct light. An optionally available digitizer pen allows handwritten notes and signatures. The touchscreen also copes well with gloves and raindrops. There are also versions with very low brightness below 1 cd/m² (night visible mode) for military purposes.
Hot-swappable battery for 24/7 operation
When it comes to power supply, the DT300Y series is hard to beat: the battery (60 Wh or 90 Wh) lasts up to eight or fourteen hours. Due to a permanently installed buffer battery, it can be exchanged during operation and thus allows uninterrupted work. This enables seamless monitoring, especially when used in production.
A 2D barcode scanner, a centimetre-precise U-blox M8 GNSS module and a front 2 megapixel and a rear 8 megapixel camera with autofocus and LED light are also available. In combination with the cameras, the GNSS module enables, for example, the very precise documentation of damaged areas in production facilities.
