ET51/ET56 Windows Enterprise Tablet
The Surprisingly Rugged, Thin and Light Tablet
When it comes to choosing a tablet for your business, your workers want sleek consumer styling, while you need enterprise-class durability, data capture and an accessory family that allows you to create the perfect tablet solution for your environment, workers and apps. Now you can have it all with the ET51 and ET56 Enterprise Tablets. The thinnest and lightest of the full line of Zebra rugged tablet computers, the ET51 and ET56 provide your workers with the same great styling they love on their personal tablet. You get a tablet built to handle all-day, everyday business, inside and outside your four walls. Both the compact 8.4 inch or full-size 10.1 inch model have bright, daylight viewable displays, and are loaded with features that make data capture easy. And a wide range of accessories boost ruggedness, simplify charging, extend battery life and make this tablet easy to carry and easy to wear. The ET51/ET56 Enterprise Tablets — all the features your business needs, with the consumer good looks your workers want.
Built for all-day every-day business
Virtually nothing will stop your tablets from delivering the reliable operation you need — it’s built to handle drops to concrete, rain, snow, dust, extreme heat, subzero temperatures, spilled liquids and even a hose-down at full force. And you can virtually double the concrete drop specification from 3.2 ft./1 m to 5.9 ft./1.8 m with the optional rugged frame.
The Corning® Gorilla® Glass display provides shatter- and scratch-resistance, protecting one of the most vulnerable components on any tablet. And vibration testing ensures this tablet is ideal for use in practically any vehicle, from forklifts in a warehouse to delivery and other trucks out on the road.
The compact, small and light 8.4 in. model is ideal when size and weight are most important. The 10.1 in. model is ideal for information intensive apps, providing maximum display area. No matter which display you choose, you get class-best brightness that makes the ET51/ET56 the easiest to read tablets in virtually any lighting conditions — including bright sunlight.
Workers can choose their preferred data input mode: a finger, with or without a glove; or a passive stylus for more precision. And every input mode works, even if the display is wet.
With support for 802.11, the ET51 and ET56 work on virtually any WiFi network. And with support for LTE on the ET56, you can give workers in the field a dependably fast cellular connection just about anywhere in the world. The result? The constant connectivity your workforce needs to improve productivity and customer service quality.
The ET51/ET56 — the surprisingly rugged, thin and light tablet.

The removable battery ensures that the ET51 and ET56 never need to be taken out of service to charge — just swap in a fully charged battery at any time. And if you’re looking to power the longest of shifts, just add a second optional hot-swappable battery via the innovative expansion back to more than double the battery run time.
The fast ultra-low power processor combines with plenty of memory, allowing workers to run multiple apps simultaneously. And the processor minimizes power consumption, extending useful battery life.
Advanced data capture
Add the Zebra enterprise-class SE4710 scan engine for light scanning or SE4750 scan engine for moderate to heavy scanning via the easy to install and easy to use expansion pack. Or pick any Zebra Bluetooth scanner to pair with your tablet. And for occasional imaging, just use the integrated 8MP rear-facing color camera.* No matter which scanning option you choose, you can count on superior scanning performance. Our scanners offer PRZM Intelligent Imaging and the advanced algorithms that Zebra is famous for, providing your workers with first-time every-time fast capture of virtually any 1D or 2D barcode in any condition — damaged, dirty or poorly printed.
The integrated 2MP front camera enables video calling over the WiFi or cellular network, allowing your workers to get instant help from a remote expert, co-worker or supervisor.
Customize your tablet solution with an unmatched accessory family
Charging solutions that mount on a wall or sit on a desktop enable charging anywhere in your facility. The unique ShareCradle provides space- and cost-efficiencies in the backroom by providing a common base to charge all your Zebra mobile computers and tablets — just insert the right cups for your devices in the charge bays. Charge the tablets in cars, trucks, forklifts and more with third-party vehicle cradles for cars and vehicle mounts. And docking station charging solutions available for either the standalone tablet or the tablet inside the rugged frame offer three USB ports, Ethernet and HDMI, providing all the connectivity you need to use the ET51/ET56 as a desktop solution and more. Or merely utilize charging through the USB-C port.
Simply replace the standard battery back with one of three Expansion Backs to add a rotating handstrap, or the SE4710 or SE4750 enterprise scan engine with a rotating handstrap. And the optional hot swappable battery can be added to any Expansion Back for around-the-clock power.
One flexible case provides your workers with three ‘wearable’ options: in a holster on a belt, in an over-the-shoulder strap or a cross-body strap.
Zebra OneCare sets the industry standard for repair services, keeping your ET51 and ET56 tablets up, running at peak performance — and in like new condition. Choose the level of service that fits your needs and your budget. And no matter which level you choose, you get comprehensive coverage that literally covers everything — normal wear and tear and accidental damage. And since nobody knows our products better than we do, you get unparalleled from-the-manufacturer expertise.
