Getac Announces New Ai-Ready Rugged Laptop 

The brand new S510 combines artificial intelligence (AI)-ready technology with rugged build quality and a 15.6-inch screen for optimal productivity in a wide range of utility scenarios.

News in brief:

  • The S510 is the world’s first AI-ready rugged laptop, aimed at professionals in the utilities industry.

  • Its combination of powerful performance and rugged reliability lets AI-based applications be used with confidence.

  • In keeping with Getac’s sustainable design mandate, a significant proportion of the S510’s chassis is comprised of post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials.

Getac has announced the launch of its brand-new AI-ready S510 rugged laptop, specifically designed to meet the unique needs of the utility industry. This advanced laptop lets utility professionals leverage the power of edge AI in their daily operations, significantly enhancing productivity, safety, and efficiency.

An Ai-ready device built for enhanced productivity 

The new S510 enables utility workers to capitalise on the significant productivity benefits of AI-based applications. An Intel Core Ultra 5/7 processor with Intel AI Boost and Intel Graphics put powerful performance at users’ fingertips, while a dedicated Microsoft Copilot key quickly awakens AI capabilities whenever needed. 

The S510 combines this innovative feature set with MIL-STD-810H and IP53 certifications, alongside 3ft (0.9m)drop and vibration resistance, giving users the peace of mind they need to work with confidence. The S510 also boasts a 15.6-inch display with 1,000 nits of brightness and Getac sunlight readable technology for optimal versatility in a variety of light conditions. In addition, the device provides robust connectivity options including Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3 as standard, with optional 4G-LTE and 5G Sub-6 capabilities to keep users connected in the field.

The S510’s rugged credentials and AI capabilities make it the ideal hardware platform for a diverse range of applications within the utility industry. By automating routine and time-consuming tasks, the S510 frees up workers to focus on more strategic activities. Its enhanced resource management features support the optimisation of energy and water distribution, reducing waste and improving efficiency. AI-driven systems also enhance worker safety by monitoring hazardous conditions and alerting workers to potential dangers. During natural disasters or system failures, the S510 provides critical data and decision support, improving response times and effectiveness.

Flexibility is a key feature of the S510, which easily integrates with existing systems and can be adapted to various utility applications, such as electricity, water, and gas. It facilitates accurate data collection and reporting, ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements. Additionally, the S510 improves the reliability and quality of service delivery to customers by minimising outages and efficiently managing resources. This leads to faster issue resolution and enhanced customer satisfaction.

Despite its large screen and rugged credentials, the S510 weighs just 2.35kg (5.18lbs) for easy carrying, while its hot-swappable battery capability supports full-shift operation. Its sustainable design also embodies Getac’s commitment to environmental responsibility, with a significant proportion of its chassis comprised of PCR materials. 

The S510 can be configured based on individual customer needs, with options including dual Thunderbolt 4 ports for faster data transfer, up to 64GB DDR5 (8GB as standard) and up to 2TB of PCIe NVMe SSD storage (256GB as standard). Further options include a laser barcode reader, DVD super multi drive, second storage drive, and/or NVIDIA GPU. 

Powering the next generation of Ai-based applications

The S510’s powerful specification and rugged credentials make it the ideal hardware platform for a diverse range of AI-based applications. For example, utilities professionals can use AI-based applications to rapidly analyse field data and identify critical infrastructure issues before they result in costly unplanned downtime.

Grace Wang, vice president of sales and marketing, general manager, Intel, said, “AI PCs represent a new generation of personal computers with dedicated AI acceleration capabilities spread across the Central Processing Unit (CPU), Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) and Neural Processing Unit (NPU). Leading the charge in this space are PCs powered by Intel Core Ultra, which offer power-efficient AI acceleration and local inference capabilities on the PC. We are delighted to see Getac’s new S510 bringing this to a rugged platform and adding to the choice of Intel Core Ultra powered AI PCs out in the market.”

James Hwang, president, Getac Technology Corporation, said, “The company is only just beginning to scratch the surface of what’s possible when it comes to AI-based applications and the benefits they can bring to organisations in the utility industry. The new S510 brings together future-proof performance and rugged reliability in a compact and lightweight package, empowering users to implement the latest AI-based innovations with complete confidence.”
