ET40/ET45 Enterprise Tablets

The right-priced rugged tablets that have it all — right out of the box

You’re considering purchasing consumer-grade tablets for your business because the cost is right — and while the feature set may not be ideal, it seems good enough. But there are hidden costs — such as a case to increase durability or a scanner for tasks that require heavy barcode scanning. Without the right durability, you’ll need to replace tablets more frequently — and short product lifecycles create a mixed model deployment that is more complex and time-consuming to support. Introducing the ET40 and ET45, the right-priced enterprise tablets that are built for business. You get everything you need, right out of the box. Thin and light consumer styling that is business tough. Integrated enterprise-class scanning. The fastest wireless connections. A multi-year lifecycle. Powerful new communication options. New solutions that add new capabilities. Zebra-only Mobility DNA tools that improve every aspect of the device lifecycle. And more. The ET40/ET45 Enterprise Tablets — everything you need to do business right, at the right price.

A strong ROI that makes business sense

Rugged and ready for all-day business

The ET40 and ET45 are built for business from the inside out, delivering reliable operation you can count on. Drop it on tile or concrete floors. Use it inside and outside, even in the heat or subzero temperatures. Hose it off. It still works. And if you work in more demanding environments, no problem — just add the optional rugged boot for even more durability.

A business-class lifecycle with guaranteed availability and support

These tablets are built to last years — and you can count on support every day your devices are in service — for six years from the initial sale date. Zebra’s optional OneCare Essential and Select support services provide all the options you need to choose the right level of service for your business. And unlike consumer tablets, Zebra guarantees that the exact model you purchase today will be available for three years, simplifying device support.

Work faster and smarter with all the right business options

Choose your screen size

Choose the screen size that’s right for the job — a compact easy-to-carry 8 inch screen or a larger 10 inch display for easier viewing of information rich apps.

Fastest wireless connectivity to keep you connected anywhere

Get the fastest Wi-Fi and cellular speeds with Wi-Fi 6 and 5G. The Wi-Fi only ET40 is ideal indoors in retail and hospitality, while the Wi-Fi and cellular ET45 is ideal for delivery drivers and more out in the field. Connect cordless headsets, printers and more with Bluetooth to create a complete wireless solution. Enable locationing with GPS — from directions to the next delivery stop to tracking driver location. And enable private LTE networks for cost-effective wireless connectivity in the largest indoor and outdoor facilities with support for Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS).1

The ET40/ET45 — the right-priced tablets that have it all, right out of the box.

Multi-shift battery power

Power options keep your tablets up and running over multiple shifts, while Zebra’s PowerPrecision batteries provide the intelligence to better manage your battery pool. Get constant power with an optional hot-swappable secondary battery — ideal for multiple shifts. And visibility into battery statistics makes it easy to spot and discard unhealthy batteries that no longer hold a full charge, eliminating the impact of dead batteries on worker productivity.

Payment-ready — take payment where and when you need it

Create a mobile POS for anywhere payment with innovative payment solutions. Create a complete on-demand hybrid POS with the Workstation Connect Cradle, Connect Hub and the Presentation stand.3 And support NFC tap to pay.

Tailor your tablet for every job with a complete accessory family

Get everything you need to make these tablets easier to carry, more rugged and more versatile through solutions that add new capabilities. The multi-slot and desktop charging cradles simplify backroom device management. Protective and carrying accessories enhance durability and portability. Create a workstation on demand with the Workstation Connect cradle and software.3 And create a kiosk and more with the Presentation stand.

Powerful data capture made easy

World-class integrated scanning

No matter what type of scanning your workers do, there’s a Zebra scan engine that’s right for the job — from standard range scanning to a large ‘sweet spot’ for dependable point-and-shoot’ simplicity or an advanced range scanner to capture items in hand and across the room. And all scanners deliver the performance that has made Zebra the market leader — split-second first time capture of virtually every barcode, in practically any condition.

Ultra-high resolution photos

Take sharp, detailed photographs for proof of condition and delivery, visual in-store merchandising audits to ensure quality and compliance and more.

Improve collaboration with video calls

Shave time and errors out of workflows with video calls. For example, in a hotel, housekeeping can show engineering a leaky faucet that requires immediate repair. And a less-experienced field technician can collaborate with a seasoned remote technician to properly diagnose and resolve an issue.
