Acnodes' Panel PCs are the completed all-in-one embedded systems that include an LCD flat touch display and processor. One of the benefits of Panel PCs is the interaction and versatility that it provides. These monitors are integrated into a slim form factor enclosure and are ready for panel or wall mount applications. Ready to be integrated into kiosks and industrial and automation applications, the industrial-grade PCs feature an all-in-one computer PC function and NEMA 4/12 rated front panel for harsh environmental applications.

The LCD panel is a TFT active type digital to digital which connects to the onboard video and comes with a standard VGA connector on the back of the panel pc for the external display. Providing protection for the LCD panel and is sealing the front panel housing to prevent water and dust, the touch screen plays a very important feature when looking for a Panel PC. The resistive type touch screen is mounted on the front of the LCD panel which typically provides high resolution and accurate touch control. Because their screens have been weatherized to protect against temperatures as cold as minus 20 degrees Fahrenheit and as hot as 140 degrees Fahrenheit, these PCs lead the field in terms of ability to be ruggedized and weatherized to combat harsh environments. With specifications usually meet or exceed the latest military specifications, it’s no wonder they stand out more than other technologies.

A system board, which is also referred to as the system board or mainboard, is included in all Panel PCs. It holds the main components of the computer and provides power for operation throughout the unit. Mounted on the side of the embedded system board lies what you call a “storage device.” These storage devices are able to hold information, process information, or in some cases does both. Depending on what these devices are used for, providing higher efficiency and higher power is what they do best. For unique hardware applications, PCI expansion slots are supported. These slots add new capabilities to the computer like being able to add more memory, and upgraded video and audio.

Regardless of all the hardware specifications and its true capabilities, one of the chief reasons for these computers to become popular would have to do with the fact that it can be a panel mount or a wall mount. If implemented in the right manner, the Panel PC can help significantly boost the aesthetic appeal of its environment.

Acnodes' High Performing and Cost-Efficient line of Panel PCs:

Flat Front Bezel - Aluminum Die-Casting Chassis - Fanless panel PC with an aluminum die-casting chassis and IP66 compliant flat front bezel for HMI solutions and automation control applications. The PC is equipped with Intel Celeron N2930 processor, onboard 4GB DDR3/DDR3L memory, high-speed USB 3.0 and GbE LAN ports, serial communication with multiple RS-232/422/485 ports, and DC 9 to 36V wide-ranging power input. Option for resistive or capacitive type touch screen, high brightness display, optical bonding, extended working temperature, and expandable I/O boards.

Wide Range Working Temperature - Below Freezing Point - Wide temperature panel PCs with an aluminum IP65 compliant front bezel, Celeron J1900 Quad-Core processor / Core i Platforms, 2GB DDR3/DDR3L memory, PCIe mini card slots, and a wide-range 9 to 36V DC power input. The PCs feature an ultra-thin bezel for varied mounting demands (ARM, Wall, Panel, Stand, Rackmount, VESA) and rich I/O interfaces (RS-232/422/485, USB, Audio).

Multi-Touch LCD Screen - HMI PC / Intelligent Display - HMI PC offers multi-touch screens in various display sizes for an intelligent display unit between human to machine interface. These PCs come with built-in WiFi & Ethernet LAN for network connection and RS-232/422/485 & USB 3.0 for real-time data acquisition and thin client applications. Its ultra-slim and fanless design enclosure allow for easy installation and maintenance in harsh working environments.

PCI / PCIe Expansion Slots - Heavy-duty Industrial Grade - This line of industrial-grade heavy-duty Panel PC offers a high-performance processor, large size touch screen monitors, IP65 rated aluminum front bezel, and rugged metal enclosure. These embedded computers provide various PCI / PCIe expansion slot combinations that you can choose for your unique add-on card.

Stainless Steel Enclosure - Full IP66 Sealed - Washdown fully sealed panel PCs featuring a fully IP66 rated stainless steel enclosure designed for hygienic Clean-in-Place (CIP) sanitary processing and washdown applications. The monitors come with a resistive or capacitive type touch screen (up 27 inches) that provides a user-friendly interface and compact rugged housing for applications with space limitations. The embedded PCs are powered by the N2930 Quad-Core processor and integrate a network-ready computer board with sealed USB and RS-232 interface ports.

Military Grade - MIL-STD-810 / Fully IP67 Rated - Military-grade panel PCs designed to meet MIL-STD-810G testing standards for industrial and military computing applications. The PCs are compacted into an all-in-one enclosure with a built-in LCD touch screen monitor.

Open Frame Mounting - Simplified Integration - Open frames Panel PCs catering to those who seek to further customize the appearance of their application. This line of panel PCs comes with built-in LCD touch screens, industrial embedded PCI Express or Mini PCI Express expansion slots, and s rugged metal open frame housing that is outfitted and ready for wall or VESA mounts.

Modular Panel PC - Modular Panel PCs separated the all-in-one Panel PC becomes two individual modules which are LCD touch screen and embedded PC, and the proprietary detachable plug-in expansion slot integrated two modules become one complete unit. The advantage of this modular design provides the flexible platforms, easy maintenance and future upgrade.
