ET50/55 Enterprise Tablet

ET50/55 Enterprise Tablet


The best of consumer-styling with all the enterprise-class features to increase productivity.
The The ET50/ET55 offers a business class- return on your investment. Your workers get the elegant personal tablet styling they want, while you get a rugged tablet designed to last for years, exceptional battery power, enterprise-class first-time every time rapid data capture — from 1D and 2D bar codes, photos and NFC tags, plus enterprise-class security for your data and centralized manageability. Whether your users are inside or outside the four walls, our comprehensive family of business accessories makes it easy to customize this tablet to meet the specific needs of just about any job.

Your choice of AndroidTM or Windows

Choose the operating system (OS) that is right for your technology strategy — Android 5.1 (Lollipop) or Windows 8.1. And every Android ET50/ET55 ships with Mx, adding features that transform Android from a consumer to true enterprise-class OS, with enterprise-class security, device management, data capture capabilities and more.

Rugged and ready for work, inside and outdoors

The ET50/55 in engineered from the inside out to handle all day everyday business use. So whether your workers drop it, spill a drink on it, use it in the rain or snow or in a very dusty area, they’ll enjoy continuous reliable operation. Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 with Native Damage ResistanceTM allows our display to better survive the real world events that commonly cause glass failure. IP65 sealing provides a dust-tight design that can handle a hose-down at full force. And while this tablet is built to handle a drop from 3.2 ft./1 m, you can nearly double the drop specification with our rugged frame.

First-time every time instant capture of virtually any type of data

You can count on the ET50/55 for true enterprise-class data capture. Optional advanced imaging engines can be added at any time to allow workers to capture any 1D or 2D bar code, farther and faster — regardless of whether it is displayed on the screen of a mobile phone or printed on paper and damaged, scratched or poorly printed. The integrated 8MP rear camera is designed for occasional capture of bar codes and images, while the 2MP front camera is ideal for a video call.

Industry leading dual mode touch panel with maximum input flexibility

Workers can choose their preferred data input mode: a finger, with or without a glove; an active stylus to capture signatures, annotate a photo or electronic document, create a sketch, take notes and more; or a passive stylus for navigation. And the ET50/55 takes the capacitive touch experience to the next level — every mode of input works, even if the display is wet.

Add the features you need — when you need them.

With an expansion port and bluetooth, you can add whatever peripherals you need, from scanners for easy inventory takes to magnetic stripe readers for payment processing.

Work uninterrupted — power up and stay up.

While most tablets in the industry only offer rechargeable batteries, the ET1 adds a removable battery that users can swap on the fly, preventing loss of data — and productivity.

Android fortified for the enterprise.

Extensions (Mx) from Zebra transforms android from a consumer operating system (OS) to a true enterprise-class OS with a series of additional features and options that improve security, device management and support for advanced enterprise data capture.

Future proof applications with RhoMobile Suite.

The ET1 supports the option to run applications built with RhoMobile suite developer tools. Write, integrate and deploy apps across platforms — iOs, android, Windows Mobile and operating systems of the future — it’s always what’s next.

Protect your investment from the unexpected

Service from the start with Comprehensive Coverage provides true business-class support for your tablet. this all-inclusive optional service covers normal wear and tear, internal and external components damaged through accidental breakage for both device and select accessories and operating system issues — keeping the ET1 up, running and in the hands of your users.

An unmatched accessory family provides a new level of flexibility

Consumer tablets are not built for business, and don’t offer the wide range of accessories you need to provide your workers with the right features and your IT department with easy backroom management. The ET50/ET55 Enterprise Tablets address this gap by providing a comprehensive line of accessories that allow you to tailor data capture features, rugged specifications and power management for your workforce, while providing your IT team with all the accessories they need for easy backroom management and efficient use of backroom space.

Increase the drop specification with our rugged frames

Just add our rugged frame to either the 8.3 in. or 10.1 in. ET50 or ET55 to nearly double the drop specification — ideal for delivery drivers, service technicians and other workers outside the four walls, as well as workers in outdoor areas in warehouses and do-it-yourself and garden stores. The standard drop specification is 3.2 ft./1 m to concrete. With the rugged frame, the drop specification increases to 6 ft./1.8 m.

Innovative expansion back for the ultimate in scanning, power management and peripheral flexibility

The integrated 8 MP camera in the ET50/ET55 is great for occasional bar code, document and photo capture. But when workers need more intensive data capture, our unique expansion back delivers. Just swap the main battery cover for the expansion back to add enterprise-class data capture to your tablets. The expansion back simply screws into place and can be ordered with your choice of two of our most advanced scan engines, the SE4750 and the SE4710, plus a rotating handstrap, or the handstrap alone. Both options are available in both tablet sizes. Two convenient scanning triggers on either side of the scan engine enable easy one-handed scanning with either hand. Screw points on the rugged frame allow you to add the accessories you need to create the perfect tablet solution for your business, from a mobile POS module to a shoulder strap. And the optional battery can be added to any expansion back.

Get perpetual power with an optional battery

When you add an optional battery via the expansion back, you never need to take the tablet out of service to replenish power. This auxiliary battery provides additional power while also charging the ET50/ET55 internal battery. Unlike the internal battery, the optional battery is hot swappable — users can simply swap the optional battery on the fly if power is running low. With 6800 mAh, the optional battery offers more power than the 8.3 in. tablet’s 5900 mAh battery, allowing you to virtually double the available power and cycle times. And the optional battery can be charged in the vehicle through the USB charging connector or in the backroom in the connectable 4-slot optional battery chargers. The result? Your ET50/ET55 Enterprise Tablets can remain in the hands of your workforce every hour of every workday, maximizing the value of this investment.

More scanning options

While you can connect any Bluetooth-enabled scanner to the ET50/55. Zebra provides two additional enterprise-class scanning options. The standalone Bluetooth CS4070 is a pocket-sized wireless scanner that offers unparalleled scanning performance on any bar code on any surface — printed or electronic. The unique and lightweight RS507 ring scanner provides hands-free scanning — ideal for retail workers or delivery drivers who need to take inventory.

Carrying solutions

Our flexible operations case allows workers to easily switch between three “wearable” options to bring comfort to any job: as a holster worn on a belt, an-over-the-shoulder strap or a cross-body strap.

Docking and charging options for backroom operations and your workers

Our unique ShareCradles allow you to utilize the same cradle to charge the ET50/ET55 and other Zebra mobile devices — an accessory strategy designed to reduce your accessory costs. ShareCradles are available in multi-slot charge only and multi-slot Ethernet and can be connected and mounted to maximize backroom space. Users can charge their individual tablet with a standard USB charging cable or a rugged charge cable that breaks away when yanked, protecting tablet lifecycle. A vehicle mount cradle is ideal for service technicians, delivery drivers and salespeople who spend their days out on the road, while a forklift mount is ideal for warehouse workers. And a variety of singleslot docks include a charge only dock, as well as a dock that provides three USB 3.0 ports, Ethernet connectivity and an HDMI port for maximum peripheral connectivity. Docks are available in two styles — standard and rugged, which accommodates the tablet in its rugged frame. (Note: vehicle docks are only available in the rugged style.)
