WINSYSTEMS Unveils Fanless IP65-Rated Panel PC for Rugged Operating Environments

Truly industrial, highly reliable PPC12-427 panel PC solution withstands shock, vibration, dust and low-pressure wash downs; provides abundant connectivity and added security in a low-profile design

Embedded computing pioneer WINSYSTEMS today introduced its multitouch, feature-packed PPC12-427 rugged display platform with an IP65-rated sealed front bezel and gasket for mounting in an enclosure. Based on the Intel E3950 processor, it is designed to deliver outstanding continuous performance in operating temperatures of -30 to +85C, as well as within environments where dust, water or airborne contaminants could damage other units.

Its low-profile (35mm) yet robust design includes dual gigabit Ethernet controllers, two USB 3.0 channels, two USB 2.0 ports, and offers a wide voltage range for input power – from +10 to 50 volts DC. The U.S.-made panel PC also contains a soldered-down TPM 2.0 module for authenticating root of trust and security.

“With the power for Windows 10 IoT and Linux operating systems, our new PPC12-427 embedded system enables the 15-year product life cycles required for digital signage, Industrial IoT, food processing, energy management, and transportation solutions,” said WINSYSTEMS’ Technical Sales Director George T. Hilliard. “It can also drive two additional displays through its dual DisplayPort and support Human Machine Interface within difficult environments – even in outside temperature extremes where other panel PCs can’t operate.”

This extension of WINSYSTEMS’ SYS-427 packaging gives designers the uninhibited performance and reliability they need without sacrificing flexibility. Unlike other systems that require attachment to an external heatsink or fan, the PPC12-427 was specifically built to operate fanlessly for temperatures ranging from -30 to +85C when equipped with automotive DRAM. It also features an industrial temperature LCD touchscreen and expansion through Mini-Card connectors. And, with its sealed front bezel fully protecting against ingress of dust and moisture, this complete touch panel PC stands up to wash-down environments such as those in food processing.
