Fanless panel pc series featuring an IP66 rated flat front enclosure for industrial applications. The PCs are powered by the Intel Celeron N2930 1.83GHZ CPU or Intel Core i platforms with the SoC chipset. The PC9XXX fanless panel PC series comes standard with a resistive type touch screen and supports an anti-scratch design up to 7H to ensure operational stability. Option for a projected capacitive type touch screen or 1000-nit high brightness display is available. The IP66 certified PC9XXX series is built with an aluminum die-casting chassis that is dustproof and able to withstand powerful jets of water. Its fanless design also improves the PC's reliability and performance in industrial applications with harsh environmental conditions. PC9XXX is capable of operating in temperatures from 0°C to 50°C and is ready for panel or VESA mount. The system supports a DC 9 to 36V wide-ranging power input designed to meet the requirements of unstable electricity environments.
Types of Touch Screens for Various Environments - Resistive, Surface Capacitive, Projected Capacitive
Touch screens have become a very common part of our daily lives. Smartphones, handheld video games, car navigation systems, ticket vending machines, kiosks, bank ATMs, and more all use touch panels to enable users to interact with a computer or device without the use of a keyboard or mouse. Even though they are all touch screens, there are several uniquely different types of touch panels. The term touch panel incorporates varied technologies for sensing the touch of a finger or stylus. The most common types of touch screens are Resistive, Surface Capacitive, and Projected Capacitive. The resistive film is the most widely used sensing method in the touch screen panel market. A resistive touch screen monitor is composed of a glass panel and a film screen, each covered with a thin metallic layer, separated by a narrow gap. When a user touches the screen, the two metallic layers come into contact, resulting in electrical flow. The point of contact is detected by this change in voltage. The surface capacitive is the second most popular type of touch screen on the market. It is often used in relatively large panels. For a surface capacitive touch screen, a transparent electrode layer is placed on top of a glass panel and covered by a protective cover. When an exposed finger touches the monitor screen, it reacts to the static electrical capacity of the human body. Lastly is the projected capacitive touch panels. Projected capacitive touch panels are often used for smaller screen sizes than capacitive touch panels. Smartphones and handheld devices use this method to accomplish high-precision multi-touch functionality and high response speed. Projected capacitive is similar to surface capacitive, but it offers two primary advantages: in addition to bare fingers, it can also be activated with surgical gloves or thin cotton gloves and it enables multi-touch activation. A projected capacitive touch screen is composed of a sheet of glass with embedded transparent electrode films and an IC chip, which creates a three-dimensional electrostatic field. When a finger comes into contact with the screen, the ratios of the electrical currents change and the computer is able to detect the touchpoints.
What is an IP Rating?
IP ratings are standards for electrical enclosures defined by the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission). The rating refers to the degree of protection against water and dust provided by a computer's enclosure. The IP rating is expressed as a two-digit number (Example: IP-65). The first number designates protection from solids, while the second number designates protection from liquids.
