Rugged 12 inch Panel-PC for Industrial Applications (PANEL12)

PANEL 12

The fanless, space-saving PANEL12 is specifically designed as front-end interface for rugged, secure sensitive environments where reliability and quality are major issues. It combines a 12" display with excellent optical specifications, an optional touch screen and a complete low power Pentium based Single Board Computer (PIP). All this comes within the footprint of a 12" LCD monitor and saves space on your working place.

The PANEL12 can be mounted over a standard VESA75 on a swivel arm, an adjustable desktop stand or on the wall.The user has the choice between a completely chromated and externally powder coated aluminum or a full stainless steel housing. The front is always IP65 protected, where on the back either through IP65 protected cable openings or behind a cover plate (IP54) various PC interfaces are available for the user.

Panel-12 Specialities

The robust and all around IP65 protected PANEL12 is the perfect solution as man machine / front end interface in harsh applications like in transportation, maritime or for clean environments like in medicine, food industry. Further as space-saving, IP54 protected, fanless and noiseless system the PANEL12 is an excellent solution for desktop applications in telecommunication, kiosk information systems and Internet access points where a quality product is an issue.
