Reinforced design ensures excellent environmental durability
Impact-resistant construction and elastomer corner protection provide durability to withstand drops of up to 1.0 metre. The tablet offers environmental performance that ensures worry-free use outdoors, in warehouses, and in other demanding environments, due to the inclusion of dust and water splash-proof performance (IP54-compliant)* and an operating temperature range of -20°C to 50°C.
* Water splashed against the device from any direction has no harmful effects when all covers for connectors, etc. are closed.
Casing ergonomics ensure secure handling
The tablet surface is dimpled and finished to prevent slipping and afford a more secure grip to increase work efficiency and reduce the risk of dropping.
Includes Bluetooth® 4.0 as a standard feature
Support for Bluetooth® Ver.4.0 (Low Energy) makes possible communication with scanners and headsets.
Designed for extended operation
A high-capacity lithium-polymer rechargeable battery with a capacity of 7,000 mAh and low power consumption design allows for approximately 10 hours* of use. The user can easily swap out the replaceable battery pack to further extend operating time. Field personnel equipped with spare battery packs can focus on work without worrying about losing power.
* Operating time varies according to the use environment.
Large 10.1-inch LCD with LED backlight
The 10.1-inch LED backlit LCD screen comes with high luminance and a wide viewing angle, which ensures excellent visibility in outdoor environments. WXGA high-resolution display adds appeal to presentations and consultative selling. A light sensor detects ambient light conditions and automatically adjusts screen brightness.
Worry-free charging environment
Non-contact charging makes it possible to recharge the battery by simply placing the tablet on a cradle. An optional car charger and replaceable battery pack are available for coupled charging. Charging a replacement battery while traveling between worksites prevents business disruption from a run-down battery.
Theft prevention feature
A loud alarm sounds when the tablet is removed from the cradle. This helps prevent theft during use for signage or at a customer service counter.
WPA2 support and integrated IEEE802.11a/b/g/n module
To ensure smooth real-time operation, the tablet has an integrated IEEE802.11a/b/g/n wireless LAN module and supports the WPA2 secure wireless communications protocol and 802.1x authentication technologies (such as PEAP and EAP-TLS).
Equipped with a SAM slot and an NFC card reader/writer
The tablet is equipped with an NFC reader/writer and supports recognition of FeliCa®, MIFARE® and other contactless smart cards as well as ISO15693-compliant RFID tags (13.56 MHz). A built-in antenna at one end of the device enables smooth reading of information. A SAM (Secure Access Module) slot comes as a standard feature. Installing a SAM makes possible communication of encrypted data for applications requiring a higher level of security.
The tablet supports smart card-based log-in security. To prevent unauthorized third-party use, companies can require log-in authentication using employee ID cards in addition to passwords.
Built-in high-accuracy GPS unit
The tablet comes with built-in GPS that makes it possible to acquire position information. Linking data with map information enables use in wide-ranging applications, such as issuing route instructions to service personnel or recording the completion of meter reading or other field activities together with position information.
Link to mapping applications for high-level business support
Headquarters can manage the location of employees in the field in real time and issues route instructions. This feature increases efficiency in personnel deployment, by allowing optimal personnel allocation and travel time reduction.
SD Card and microSD Card Slot
The tablet comes with an SD card slot (SDHC-compatible) as a standard feature for use in applications such as operation with a high-volume stored database for backup data or expansion of user storage. There is also an integrated microSD card slot. Utilizing this for OS or program data increases efficiency in maintenance and deployment.
Backup and Cloning
Using a microSD card to back up data makes it possible to duplicate data and clone a configuration to a spare tablet. There’s no need to worry about bothersome backup tablet configuration or data loss due to a tablet malfunction.
A full range of expansion features
The tablet is equipped with USB ports for USB host and client connectivity. This expands the scope of tablet use by enabling connection with external devices or connection to a PC without a cradle.
The tablet is equipped with a mini HDMI port for connection with a large-screen LCD televisions or projectors. This is ideal for presentations to large audiences.
Equipped with wireless WAN*
The V-T500-GE is equipped with a wireless WAN module that realises high-speed data communication (HSDPA) for real-time communication outdoors. This tablet is suited to wide-ranging applications in field operations.
* V-T500-GE only
Dual input by finger touch or digitizer pen
The screen is a capacitive touch panel that supports multi finger action input, an intuitive method of operation that eliminates user stress. In addition, digitizer pen input is useful for inputting handwritten information such as signatures. Companies can prepare client applications that distinguish between pen input and finger touch input.
Operation of multi finger action using the fingers, input of handwritten signatures using the digitizer pen, and special key operation are supported.
Dual mode (for waiting on customers)
It’s possible to designate an area on the screen that responds only to the touch of a digitizer pen.
Dual mode (for reading documents)
Enlarge or reduce a document by touching the screen with a finger and record information within the screen using a digitizer pen.

Total Real Time Stock Accuracy at Total Tools
“We needed to maximise our processes and gain greater efficiencies within our stores through the use of rugged mobile devices which integrated with our Pronto ERP. After a rigorous selection process we partnered with ASP Microcomputers as they understood our pain points and came up with insights about how to solve them with the most intuitive and cost effective solution. The Casio DT-X30 units were the best units on the market and integrated seamlessly with Pronto XI and were very well accepted across all our stores. ASP is there whenever we need them, which isn’t often as the solution is so reliable.”
