Tablets  >  ET51 Windows Enterprise Tablet with Integrated 1D/2D Barcode Scanner

Built for all-day every-day business

Rugged and ready to use indoors and outside

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.

This ET51 offering includes an ergonomically designed protective frame that provides a drop specification of 1.2 meters/4 feet to concrete surfaces. The Corning® Gorilla® Glass display provides shatter- and scratch-resistance, protecting one of the most vulnerable components on any tablet.

Class-best brightness and your choice of screen size

The compact, small and light 8.4 inch model is ideal when size and weight are most important. You get class-best brightness that makes the ET51 with integrated scanner the easiest to read tablet in virtually any lighting conditions — including bright sunlight.

Advanced touchscreen technology

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.

The fastest wireless connections wherever there's a hot spot

With support for 802.11, the ET51 work on virtually any WiFi network. The result? The constant connectivity your workforce needs to improve productivity and customer service quality.

Perpetual 24x7x365 power

The removable battery ensures that the ET51 never needs 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 ET51 — the surprisingly rugged, thin and light tablet.

The power to run the most demanding apps

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

Advanced enterprise-class scanning

The Zebra enterprise-class SE4710 scan engine integrated into the ET51 offers 1D and 2D bar code scannig capabillities for multiple user environments such as Retail and Operations. The Left and Right triggers provide ambidextrous operation while the hand strap provides stability and comfort for the user. And for occasional imaging, just use the integrated 8MP rear-facing color camera.* 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.

Video calls for on-the-spot help

The integrated 2MP front camera enables video calling over the WiFi, allowing your workers to get instant help from a remote expert, co-worker or supervisor.
