RS is the Exclusive Online Source for the New Siemens SIMATIC IPC MD-34A Industry 4.0 Tablet

This new, next-generation Siemens industrial tablet PC empowers you to compute, monitor, control, and multitask on the go and can help you optimize your mobile productivity, improve your responsiveness, increase efficiencies, reduce operating costs by up to 60%, and unlock new business opportunities.

RS, a trading brand of RS Group plc (LSE: RS1), a global provider of product and service solutions for industrial customers, is the exclusive online source for the new Siemens SIMATIC IPC MD-34A next-generation industrial tablet.

This new Industry 4.0 tablet is equipped with a powerful Intel Core i5 processor and all of the necessary interfaces and add-on modules that organizations in manufacturing, field services, transportation and logistics, retail and hospitality, utilities, public safety, precision agriculture, and land management industries need to collect, visualize, process, and act upon real-time device, equipment, and facility data. This data is vital to improving organizations' responsiveness, efficiencies, and cost savings, and the new Siemens SIMATIC IPC MD-34A literally puts it in the palm of your hand.

Designed to optimize mobile productivity by connecting users to critical data anytime and anywhere, the SIMATIC IPC MD-34A industrial tablet features an Intel Core i5 processor capable of running AI- and WinCC-based SCADA and HMI solutions, executing other computing, monitoring, and controlling tasks, and even multitasking and is available with a hand strap, shoulder strap, vehicle dock, and desk dock. To withstand the risks associated with both mobility and industrial environments, it features a ruggedized but lightweight, modular form factor with few moving parts, a long battery life, IP65 sealing, and military-grade durability, as proven through testing. The tablet weighs just 1.1kg (2.43lbs) and delivers six hours of runtime with a 11.4V/3,500mA battery. It also features navigation sensors for enhanced mobility, advanced Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth v5.3 mobile connectivity capabilities for efficient, uninterrupted data transmission and collection, a large 10.1" interactive screen for impressive visualizations, optional RFID and barcode scanner modules for added value, and an extended standard warranty for peace of mind.

Given these valuable features and capabilities, the new Siemens SIMATIC IPC MD-34A industrial tablet can help users cut operating costs by up to 60%. For example, by allowing users to remotely access, monitor, and control various systems, like production and assembly lines, in parallel, it reduces the need for on-site employees, which can result in significant savings. In logistics applications, it can be mounted in equipment like forklifts and stackers to improve the speed, efficiency, and accuracy of picking operations and mitigate losses. In precision farming and land management applications, it can provide users with remote access to real-time sensor data about environmental and crop conditions or transmit field data and GPS coordinates to facilitate timely responses, mitigate losses, and minimize labor requirements and costs.

The new Siemens SIMATIC IPC MD-34A industrial tablet is also available with five convenient accessories engineered to further enhance mobility and ease of use. The desk dock features an RS 232 interface, a VGA interface, a 10/100Mb/s RJ45 Ethernet interface, and four USB Type-A interfaces and enables hassle-free, single-handed operation in office environments. The vehicle dock features an RS 232 interface, a 10/100Mb/s RJ45 Ethernet interface, and four USB Type-A interfaces, a standard 75x75mm VESA mount design, and a key-lockable cradle for theft protection. The padded, adjustable hand strap and shoulder strap provide security and comfort and support mobile multitasking, and the battery charging dock supports two batteries, provides auditory confirmation of proper insertion, and has an LED indicator to convey charging status.

"The new Siemens SIMATIC IPC MD-34A industrial tablet empowers you to compute, monitor, control, and multitask on the go and can help you cut operating costs by up to 60%. It weighs less than two and a half pounds, delivers six hours of advanced processing power, and puts valuable, real-time operational data in the palm of your hand — whether you're ambulatory, in your vehicle, or at your desk — which, in addition to helping you optimize your mobile productivity, improve your responsiveness, increase efficiencies, and reduce costs, can help you unlock new business opportunities," said Marie Dawson, Senior Director of Product and Supplier Management at RS Americas. "We are very proud to be the sole source for this high-performance, future-forward, Industry 4.0 tablet PC, and we are very grateful for our close-knit, collaborative partnership with Siemens."
