Firstly, construction tablets have become essential tools for construction industry. These portable devices offer a host of useful features to help manage construction projects and increase productivity on worksite. The construction tablet is therefore a small revolution offering professionals a more efficient way of managing their projects.
Construction tablets find their usefulness in the fact that construction worksites can be extremely harsh environments for electronic devices, with conditions such as dust, vibration and humidity that can damage fragile devices.
In this article, we explore the importance of reinforced construction tablets on worksites and the benefits they offer for increased efficiency and safety on worksites.
Finally, to help you find the best heavy-duty tablet, we’ve put together this list of the 3 best construction tablets available on the market today.
The F110 worksite tablet combines the ease of use of a tablet with the performance of a laptop. Thanks to its compact size, it can be used on the move while offering the power and versatility of a desktop computer where a laptop is more cumbersome.
Its 11.6-inch screen (which is slightly larger than the other tablet from the same brand that we’ll be looking at next) makes viewing data easy on the eyes without having to zoom in. Also, its size makes it easy to hold, especially as it also has a non-slip grip on the back.
The F110 tablet is fast and efficient. It has more power, greater storage capacity, longer battery life and faster connectivity.
It can also withstand temperatures ranging from -29°C to +63°C. Its 11th-generation Intel® Core™ processor with integrated Intel® UHD graphics is capable of handling all the tasks you could ask of a tablet. In addition, its new SSD (Solid-State Drive) offers a reading and loading capacity five times faster than its previous model. That’s why we think it’s one of the flagship tablets of 2023.
The most robust tablet you can buy right now is the Getac UX10, known for its well-protected, versatile devices.
The Getac UX10 is a rugged tablet with a strong customisation feature: you can choose from a variety of Intel Core processors. The big plus point of this tablet is its multitude of accessories for adapting the worksite tablet to your work situation. This makes it very versatile and with its protection and various high storage options, the device is perfect for working on site.
Getac doesn’t publish a price for the UX10, but you can request a quote for the device on the Getac website here.
The Zebra Motion Xslate R12 outshines the competition not only in terms of performance, but above all in terms of durability. In fact, it has a battery life of 9 hours, which is already above average, but you can add an extra battery to double that.
Another noteworthy feature is that this worksite tablet has 2-in-1 functionality thanks to its magnetic contact keyboard, which is very useful for moving from the office to the field.
Worksites are tough environments, so tablets need to be robust enough to withstand shock, vibration, dust and moisture. So choose tablets certified for use in industrial environments, or models with reinforced protection to withstand shocks and drops.
It’s important to make sure your tablet is waterproof and dustproof. Ideally, it should have a high IP (Ingress Protection) rating, such as IP67 or IP68, for maximum resistance.
Construction tablets must be able to operate for long periods without frequent recharging. Check the battery capacity and autonomy declared by the manufacturer.
Your tablet’s screen needs to be both scratch-resistant and readable in direct sunlight.
The size of the screen is also important, though, depending on your needs in terms of mobility. It’s worth noting, however, that tablets are generally around 11 inches, which seems to be the most appropriate size.
Last but not least, the components of the worksite tablet: the main thing to look at is the RAM to see if the tablet can support the software you’re using.
Another essential component for a better tablet: the processor.
5th-generation Intel Core processors will be the standard for entry-level tablets in 2023.
The last component we consider essential is storage capacity. You’ll need storage capable of processing and storing data quickly, as well as supporting software, which is why it’s vital to have an SSD-type hard drive (often used for laptops) rather than an HDD.
In conclusion, before you buy your construction tablet, it’s vital to take a number of factors into account to make your purchase a reliable one (performance, robustness, waterproofing, etc.). Our advice: go through the specifications on the product sheet to make the best possible final choice.
