iDTRONIC Intros Tablet With Optional RFID and Bar-Code Reader

iDTRONIC has announced its C4 Tablet L, the successor to its C4 Tablet model. The new unit is a mobile data-collection device for applications involving building site management and aviation management. The C4 Tablet L is suitable for Android 7.0, the company reports, and has an 8-inch touch screen. It works with the latest mobile standard for 4G LTE and Wi-Fi networking, according to iDTRONIC, and weighs 600 grams (21 ounces).

The anthracite housing of the C4 Tablet L consists of rubberized TPU/CP plastics. It is IP67-rated and provides protection against contact with dust and humidity. The device has an ergonomic housing that is slip-resistant and has reinforced edges. The display consists of Gorilla Glass and is suitable for harsh environments, the company indicates. The tablet can be upgraded with a 1D (bar code) or 2D (QR code) reader. This enables efficient and fast control of mobile data collection within operational applications, iDTRONIC explains.

The C4 Tablet L operates at various RFID frequencies: UHF (865 to 868 MHz or 920 to 925 MHz), HF/NFC (13.56 kHz) and LF (125 kHz or 134.2 kHz). The LF version supports transponders and tags compliant with the ISO 11784 and 11785 standards, while the HF/NFC version complies with ISO 14443A and 15693, and the UHF version complies with EPC C1 GEN2 und ISO 18000-6C.

The tablet runs with the Android 7.0 "Nougat" OS and is equipped with an A53 1.5 GHz Octa-Core processor. Its rechargeable battery operates at 8,000 mAh and can withstand an entire working day, the company reports. Due to its 3.8-volt power supply, the tablet is equipped with a quick-charge function. The internal memory can be provided with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of ROM or 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of ROM. As such, the Micro SD is expandable up to a maximum of 128 GB.

A 13-megapixel camera comes with auto-focus and LED Flash, enabling it to function under a variety of lighting conditions. Documentation of work processes can be reproduced sharply with this high-resolution camera.
