Original Press Release:
19 Slim and Fanless Point-of-Care Terminal with Intel® Core(TM) Duo Performance
Advantech has released the POC-S196, a slim Point-of-Care (POC) terminal with a 19" high-contrast LCD, ideal for storage and retrieval of patient information, helping medical professionals focus on delivering better patient care and monitoring. The POC-S196 is both quiet and powerful, featuring a fanless design and an Intel® Core(TM) Duo processor with support for Microsoft Vista(TM). Its robust design is sealed against water and dust, meeting industry certification requirements, and the POC-S196 buttons are seamlessly integrated into the front panel for easy cleaning. A book light, trim knob and touchscreen make the POC-S196 easier than ever to use.
A Core Duo Processor in a Slim Design with a 19" LCD Display
The POC-S196 is powered by an Intel® Core(TM) Duo 1.66 GHz processor with memory expansion for up to 4 GB DDR2 SDRAM, optimized for multi-threaded applications and multitasking, with support for Microsoft Vista(TM). The slim design offers an ideal solution for space-conscious environments. In addition, excellent power efficiency balances great computing capabilities and power savings. The 19" LCD screen with its 1300 : 1 contrast ratio, allows patient charts and data to be more easily read, reducing errors and improving efficiency.
Quiet Operation and a Fanless Design
The fanless design allows the POC-S196 to operate quietly and reduces overall system noise, creating a better environment for patients and medical personnel. In addition, a fanless design minimizes dust inhalation and accumulation inside the machine.
Certified Robust Design
The robust design of the POC-S196 is certified with an IPX1 rating for a water resistant enclosure, an IP65 rating for a dust-tight panel, and medical certifications UL60601-1 and EN60601-1. It is also CE and FCC Class B certified to meet medical safety approval standards, with lower electrical emissions and resistance to electro-magnetic interference from other devices. The POC-S196 can be operated safely and reliably in demanding environments and as a result of its design, much closer to patients. It is water-splash proof and dust tight, yet can be easily cleaned with isopropyl alcohol and other cleaning agents.
The medical profession demands reliability, flexibility and strict compliance to health and safety standards in their computing platforms. The POC-S196, available now, offers both, with an extensive range of connectivity features, a lower total cost of ownership, and long service life, to meet the needs of medical applications in ICUs, operating rooms, and in patient care and monitoring.
