The Pad-Ex® 01 P12 is ideal for use in highly demanding sectors such as warehousing, field service and logistics. The tablet is predestined for use in particularly hazardous areas and sectors such as hydrogen production, the chemical, oil and gas industries and for the mobile management of large-scale facilities, including inspection, maintenance and operation.

“With the Pad-Ex® 01 P12, we are providing the world’s first fully ruggedized 11.6-inch ATEX/IECEx tablet with a 12th generation Intel processor. It is characterized by its slim and compact design for the modern mobile workforce.
