The best of both worlds: ECOM presents third generation of its 8-inch Android tablet series

13 January 2022

With the Tab-Ex® 03, mobile workers get a tablet with the latest specifications, which enables significant time and cost savings in the completion of their daily work – whether in the field or in the office. On the large screen with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,200 pixels, construction drawings can be viewed in detail and greater size than on a smartphone display.

Users can connect the tablet to the desktop via Samsung's DeX function when they want to go from the plant to the office or even home office. A 13-megapixel camera is installed for taking photos and videos, the front camera has a resolution of 5 megapixels. The handy Tab-Ex® 03 DZ2 and D2 can be easily operated with gloves or the S Pen stylus, which writes with high pressure sensitivity.

The Pepperl+Fuchs brand ECOM Instruments continues the success story of its 8-inch Tab-Ex® series with the intrinsically safe Tab-Ex® 03 tablet in the DZ2 (for Zone 2/22 & Division 2) and D2 (for Division 2) variants. The successor model to the Tab-Ex® 02 is thus the third generation of Samsung devices in variants for industrial use in hazardous areas. Based on the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 3, the Tab-Ex® 03 offers state-of-the-art technology for harsh environments as well as Android 11 with update guarantee. Samsung Knox ensures high security for data and devices. The Samsung DeX feature supports a quick switch to the desktop version. In addition, the tablet offers more RAM and external storage than the previous models.

Tab-Ex® 03 DZ2 and D2 delivers industry-leading performance in mobile devices for hazardous areas with a slim and lightweight design. It is easy to operate with gloves or the S Pen stylus. A desktop version as well as peripherals for industrial use make the Tab-Ex® 03 the perfect companion for the modern mobile worker. Digital products and services from ECOM complete the all-round solution. Thus, the Tab-Ex® 03 can be fully adapted to individual requirements and offers optimal support for everyday work.

With the included S Pen stylus, users can make precise entries, quickly create notes, highlight texts or digitally sign documents – for example via Air Command or the Samsung Notes app. The S Pen writes like a real pen thanks to high pressure sensitivity, a 0.7 mm tip and 4,096 pressure levels. Its IP68-certification ensures its reliability under all conditions. With integrated Google ARCore, the tablet is designed for comprehensive Industry 4.0 augmented reality applications, including environment recognition or object identification, e. g. for plant management or predictive maintenance of devices. This ensures a high level of quality, accelerates processes and minimizes risks.

Compared to the previous version, the new Tablet Tab-Ex® 03 provides enhanced data protection and device security, for example through the new Enterprise Edition of Samsung Knox. As with all Knox-certified devices, it supports functions such as mobile login, configuration, management and E-FOTA (Enterprise Firmware-Over-The-Air) via a separately purchased license. To simplify access, biometric authentication methods via facial recognition or fingerprint scanner can be used for user authentication with the Tab-Ex® 03.

Easy administration, global service and support

ECOM's Digital Products & Services division enables the staging, management and real-time monitoring of the Tab-Ex® 03, combining automated pre-configuration with comprehensive mobile device management and device analytics. This means that the tablet is not only easy to set up and manage, but can also be updated at any time – even over-the-air. Global support by Pepperl+Fuchs and Samsung provides operational security and rapid assistance. Local contact persons and application engineers are available to answer questions, solve problems or carry out repairs as quickly as possible.

The Tab-Ex® 03 is available immediately in the DZ2 (for Zone 2/22 and Division 2) and D2 (for Division 2) variants, with the DZ1 (for Zone 1/21 and Division 1) variant following in mid-2022.
