The design is flexible so that one COM Port can be removed to support an additional 2 USB Ports, become 2 USB + 2 COM or 4 USB +1 COM.
Compared with our First Generation of the PPC series, we feel the 2nd Generation is more stylish. The new PPC series features a front panel which meets IP-65 water-dust proof. While the top chassis meets IP-X1 water drop protected to avoid liquid penetration. A customized internal cooling system utilizes a heatpipe to replace the heatsink, which allows us to utilize higher performance platforms. The membrane switch replaces traditional mechanical buttons which help to reduce mechanical failures while offering low power consumption and fast responsbility characteristics. The new Camera with microphone and RFID will allow our users to find more applications which can utilize the system. The rear side also features a service window which can help to allow easy access to the HDD.
