Toughpad FZ-G1

Toughpad FZ-G1 - Panasonic's Rugged Tablet

Panasonic first released its first fully rugged Toughpad, the FZ-G1 tablet, in April 2013. A total of five generations of the FZ-G1 were released over the five years that they were in production. This rugged tablet can withstand demanding environments and prides itself on impressive performance capabilities comparable to top-rated consumer and business tablets. Although it does come at a high cost brand-new, today you can equip your field workers with a fully rugged refurbished FZ-G1 at a significantly lower cost.

What It Means to Be a Rugged Tablet

The FZ-G1 is MIL-STD-810G certified and IP65 dust and water-resistant. Pairing the long battery life with its hard magnesium alloy casing makes the FZ-G1 an excellent option for any mobile work environment, especially for police officers, firefighters, and EMS personnel.

A Fully Rugged Tablet Fulfilling Public Safety Needs

Public safety personnel require a lot out of a tablet. One of the more important qualities they require in a tablet is the ability to absorb some of the punishment from working in harsh conditions. They also need a compatible dock that offers the user a comfortable workspace and keeps the tablet safe while the vehicle is in motion. Between the dock and the tablet, there needs to be plenty of ports for peripheral devices that will be in the vehicle. The fully rugged Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1 meets and exceeds all these requirements.

The Perfect Tablet for Police Departments

Police organizations need a reliable and durable mobile solution. The Toughpad FZ-G1 is popular for a variety of reasons, including its ability to withstand extreme temperatures and vibrations, large drops up to six feet in height, and the day-to-day excessive demands of police work. It is an excellent alternative to the traditional bulky, rugged laptops often used in police vehicles.

On top of being durable, the FZ-G1 is also extremely functional in a police vehicle. Top it off with the right dock, external keyboard, and a USB or Bluetooth printer and the FZ-G1 becomes the perfect all-in-one mobile workstation. The only thing that would make it better is if this dock is paired with the correct Lind auto adapter to help keep the unit charged during a 10-hour shift.

The Ultimate Solution for Fire Departments

Fire departments require computing devices that can operate in extreme heat and gather documentation such as audio interviews, pictures, and videos of fires. The FZ-G1 can accomplish this because of its integrated microphone and the 8MP rear camera. FZ-G1s with mobile data cards are capable of geofencing, giving fire chiefs the ability to keep track of their firefighters’ locations when they are out on the road.

These tablets aren’t just for emergencies. There is a wide variety of support for apps that help get fire prevention inspections and safety checks done. You can use the FZ-G1 around the firehouse to keep track of training on any active fighters, inventory management, and the health of all equipment.

Enhance EMS Efficiency with the FZ-G1 Rugged Tablet

EMS personnel also require a portable, fully rugged, and user-friendly tablet for their work. The display on the tablet is designed to be used with both your fingers and the stylus that comes attached to it. The tablet also has a built-in storage and tethering system, so you can keep the stylus safe and secure when not in use. The FZ-G1 tablet allows paramedics to inform the emergency room about the patient's condition to better prepare them for treatment upon arrival. Not only can the FZ-G1 assist medics with their job, it can also help save lives!
