Panasonic has announced upgrades to the Panasonic Toughbook H2 handheld tablet PC.

The MIL-STD-810G1- and IP651-certified device includes a faster processor, expanded storage, and other improvements, while retaining features to enhance usability and durability—including the ability to survive a 6-foot drop.

Toughbook H2 key improvements include:

•Upgraded processor—Intel Core i5-3427U (up to 2.8GHz) with Intel Turbo Boost Technology

•Expanded storage—500-GB 7200-rpm hard drive (shock-mounted flex-connect with hard drive heater) with optional 128-GB SSD

•Improved battery life—Twin, hot-swappable batteries deliver seven hours of uninterrupted work per MobileMark 2007 testing

•Enhanced connectivity—Intel Advanced-N 6235 Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n and Bluetooth v4.0 + EDR (Class 1) standard on all models. Integrated wireless broadband options include 4G LTE or 3G Gobi and dedicated GPS

The 3.5-lb Toughbook H2 handheld tablet PC runs the Microsoft Windows 7 Professional (32- or 64-bit) operating system and includes optional integrated technology such as bar-code, fingerprint, insertable, or contactless SmartCard/RFID readers. With standard USB 3.0, serial, and Ethernet ports, connectivity is top of the line. Its 10.1-inch XGA LED transflective touchscreen with Panasonic CircuLumin technology allows for full-circle viewability from the brightest sunlight to pitch darkness. Screen brightness can be adjusted from 6,000 nits to as low as 1 nit for concealed nighttime use.

The Toughbook H2’s polycarbonate-encased magnesium alloy chassis is built with an IP651-certified sealed all-weather design. It is MIL-STD-810G1-certified for drops up to 6 feet, shock, vibration, rain, dust, sand, altitude, freeze/thaw, high/low temperature, temperature shock, humidity, and explosive atmospheres. A MIL-STD-461F-certified model for electromagnetic compatibility is available.

For healthcare environments, the Toughbook H2 has a fully sealed design, with no fan vents or exposed ports, for easy disinfection. This reduces the risk of potentially pathogenic microorganisms being spread from patient to patient. The device is a secure and intuitive platform for bar-code medication administration (BCMA), vitals capture, and electronic medical records (EMR) capture and review.

The Toughbook H2 is backed with a three-year limited international warranty.
