    ToughBook 55 Specification and DataSheet

    Flexible Modular Upgrade System

    The Panasonic Toughbook 55 MK2 uses a modular system that lets you upgrade the storage, memory and add additional ports. Previously, an upgrade was only possible at the time of order, adding weeks to the delivery date. However, the innovative design of the Toughbook 55 MK2 means the device can change with user requirements. Other possible user-upgrades include authentication readers, optical drives, and dedicated GPU. This innovative approach to customisation allows organisations to futureproof and simplify their processes, increasing downtime as a result.


    Impressive Battery Life

    The Toughbook 55 boasts an impressive battery life, with up to 19 hours of standard operation when fully charged. However, the battery life doubles with the use of an optional hot swappable battery. With 38 hours of battery life, workers in the field can easily hand the Toughbook 55 to a colleague on the next shift without the stress of having to ensure the battery is fully charged.


    State-of-the-Art Technology

    The Toughbook 55 MK2 uses an infrared webcam with tetra-array microphones and privacy cover. With four microphones, this semi-rugged laptop has excellent speech recognition accuracy. Security features of the unit include facial recognition and two factor authentication, secure BIOS with Intel Hardware® Shield and a secure operating system.

    Built for the Modern Field Worker

    Panasonic's updated Toughbook 55 is powered by an Intel Core™ i5-1145G7 vPro™ processor, which offers a high level of performance to help workers make the most of their workday. The standard Toughbook 55 is equipped with a 14-inch high definition display with a resolution of 1366 x 768, with the option of upgrading to a 1000-nit full high definition display that includes capacitive touch. Partnered with the latest technology in microphones, the processor used in the Toughbook 55 offers a quick response to voice commands and high fidelity audio that doesn't impact performance and drain battery life.

    The Highest Level of Security

    The Panasonic Toughbook 55 MK2 is a secured-core PC. These are the most secure Windows PCs ever, simplifying device security through the ability to prevent infections, prevent unauthorised access to devices and data, and more.


    Using the Panasonic Toughbook 55 in the dark is made easier with its colour-selectable back-lit keyboard. With six colour options to choose from and day/night mode functionality, it will reduce eye strain and maintain optimal night vision.



    Despite its slim profile and light 2.08kg weight, the Toughbook FZ-55 is designed to perform in difficult outdoor conditions. The unit is certified MIL-STD-810H with capabilities including 91cm drops, sand, dust, shock, high and low temperatures and humidity. It also has an IP53 certification meaning it can cope with light sprays of water even at a 60-degree angle. The keyboard is spill resistant and, if needed, can be easily replaced with a new one. The magnesium alloy design has a built-in handle making it easily portable.

    With the addition of a rugged Fischer USB port, there is a smooth operation of the USB connection between the laptop and the USB device you are connecting to.       


    Compatible With CF-54 Vehicle and Desktop DocksBack of the Panasonic Toughbook 55 on white backgorund

    The good news if you’re upgrading from the CF-54 is that the Toughbook FZ55 is backwards compatible so there’s no need to update any vehicle or desktop docks and chargers, they will all still work.

    The Toughbook 55 is designed for field and mobile workers on-the-go, and is used in a range of industries including:

    • Construction
    • Hospitality
    • Automotive Diagnostics
    • Maintenance
