Using the very latest Windows 10 Pro OS and with a 7-inch, 10-finger multi-touch display, the Panasonic Toughpad FZ-M1 gives you the freedom to comfortably complete outdoor field work in any weather thanks to its light, portable, pocket-sized design.
This is one of the smallest, most portable rugged tablets on the market, but FZ-M1 is still equipped with all the connection ports of a regular-sized Toughbook to ensure you can complete any task that is thrown your way when working in the field.
10-Finger Multi Touch Display and High-Quality Cameras
The Panasonic FZ-M1 has a 7” display (1200 x 800 px) with a powerful 10-finger multi touch display and two cameras.
What exactly is a 10-finger multi-touch display?
By comparison, most tablets and smartphones have a two-touch display (can only detect input from two fingers at a time) and can only identify finger touch on a X and Y axis. 10-finger multi-touch uses camera sensor technology to map an image of the area where your fingerprints touch during any task. This is particularly useful when using applications that require the use of a virtual keyboard.
For such a small Toughpad, the Panasonic FZ-M1 doesn’t compromise on quality. The Toughpad FZ-M1 has two cameras - an 8 megapixel rear camera with LED flash and autofocus, and a 2 megapixel front facing camera that can be used for video calls.
Fully Rugged MIL-STD-810G and IP65 Certification
Most fully rugged devices can withstand drops of up to 1.2 metres, but the Panasonic FZ-M1 goes even further.
This ultra-light (540g weight) Toughpad can survive drops from a whopping 1.8 metres, making it one of the most durable Toughpads on the market today.
MIL-STD-810G certification means this device has been put through a series of extreme tests to ensure it keeps working when subjected to transport vibrations, heavy shocks and extreme temperature changes. As a fully rugged tablet, the FZ-M1 is completely protected from solids (sand, dust, dirt) and can withstand low water jet pressure from any angle.
Who Needs the FZ-M1?
Many businesses around the world have adopted the Panasonic FZ-M1 to help drive their success. Formula Ford use the FZ-M1 to diagnose vehicle problems more efficiently and quickly. The FZ-M1 plugs directly into the car's computer system to monitor performance during pit stops.
Belgian Railways adopted the Panasonic FZ-M1 to enhance the productivity of train managers and operators. The FZ-M1 allows workers to quickly scan customer tickets and e-tickets using the pocket-sized device, while also giving customers instant information about future journeys.
The FZ-M1 is ideal for a business that requires a compact device for workers on the go such as delivery drivers, ticket inspectors, warehouse operators and other professions where lugging around bulky equipment is not an option.
Barcode Reader & Hot-Swappable Battery
The Panasonic FZ-M1 has a fanless design to suit its pocket sized style. The last thing you want is for a fan to be overheating in your pocket while you’re trying to get your work done!
The device also can be configured with an optional, built-in 2D barcode reader which streamlines your required equipment. Say goodbye to outdated, bulky barcode readers!
It will comfortably see your team through long work shifts with its optional hot swappable batteries - this allows the user to change batteries over without having to power down the device.
As with all Toughpads, there is a full range of matching accessories available to upgrade your tablet including a touchscreen pen, vehicle dock, car charger, hand straps, external vehicle antenna and more.
