Military-grade panel PCs designed to meet MIL-STD-810G testing standards for industrial and military computing applications. Available with display sizes from 10.4" to 19", these military-grade PCs are integrated with Intel's high performance or energy efficiency processors and support a wide range of I/O ports including LAN, COM, VGA, HDMI, or USB. With fully IP-rated enclosures and a wide range of working temperatures, these PCs provide reliability for operation in harsh working environments and mission-critical applications.
REFERENCES What is MIL-STD Rating? The U.S. Military Standard (MIL-STD) gives a guideline for devices that are said to be “rugged” or “ruggedized”. It was introduced to provide a series of tests to simulate how the material would hold up to environmental stress during an operational lifetime. The MIL-STD standards detail 28 different testing methods that cover everything from temperature to fungal infestation to gunfire. The eight tests used to determine if a computing device is rugged include high temperature, low temperature, rain, humidity, sand and dust, immersion, vibration, and shock.
IP and NEMA Ratings – What Do They Mean? 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. On the other hand, NEMA ratings are standards that are useful in defining the types of environments in which an electrical enclosure can be used. The NEMA rating system is defined by the NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturer Association), and frequently signifies a fixed enclosure’s ability to withstand certain environmental conditions.
