An extreme tablet for a potentially extreme environment like the mining industry? Makes sense. The Dell Latitude 7220EX Rugged Extreme tablet is made for rough and challenging use, even potentially explosive environments.

Powerful and high-performing, the Dell Latitude is a military-grade armoured tablet that features ATEX and IECEx certifications, making it easier for customers to procure and deploy one platform across various regions. The 11.6” 1000-nit screen increases direct sunlight viewability and also offers glove-touch capability. Built for abuse, the tablet is drop-tested,  temperature-tested from -28 C to 68 C and IP-65 rated for maximum protection against dust, dirt and water submersion. To balance the security of the device with user accessibility, the Latitude 7220EX Rugged Extreme tablet features a built-in infrared camera with Windows facial recognition and optional next-generation fingerprint reader.

The new Dell Latitude 7220EX Rugged Extreme tablet has the durability and resilience needed in a tough environment, ensuring operational infrastructure remains intact.
