Advantech Launches a 15" Stainless Steel Industrial Panel PC with IP66 Rating
(Cincinnati, Ohio - 11/11/09) - The Industrial Automation Group of Advantech introduces the IPPC-8151S, a 15" XGA TFT LCD fanless Industrial Panel PC with an Intel Celeron® M 1GHz CPU. The IPPC-8151S comes with a special tapered & food safe rubber seal between the bezel and the chemical resistant touch screen and, an optional fully sealed 316L stainless steel enclosure satisfying the standards required in food processing, clinical, chemical or pharmaceutical applications. When modified with the fully sealed enclosure, it is completely protected against water damage, achieving a NEMA4 (IP66) grade of protection.
The IP66 rating guarantees waterproof and dustproof protection, ensuring reliable operation in any hazardous environment. The standard model supports IP66 grade protection on the front panel only, while an optional stainless steel enclosure kit and IP66 I/O module are available to support a fully enclosed IP66 protection for all sides including all I/O ports.
Stainless steel chassis' are a great fit for many industrial applications due to their ability to minimize contamination and maintain strict hygienic requirements. 316L stainless steel is more resistant to corrosion than 304 and IP66 protection provides waterproof protection, making it easy to clean or disinfect even with high pressure water. Moreover, the dust-proof capabilities make it exceptionally suitable for applications in hazardous environments. In addition, the specially designed touch screen is resistant to chemical, detergent and disinfectant damage.
The IPPC-8151S is equipped with a bright and sharp display. The embedded Intel Celeron M 1GHz, 1MB L2 cache and 1GB DDR2 memory satisfy most application computing needs. The fanless design extends operational life with enhanced anti-shock and anti-vibration properties suitable for harsh environments. Furthermore, with one CompactFlash slot, one PCI expansion, and one SATA HDD, the IPPC-8151S provides flexibility and meets high capacity demands.
