Thanks to their practical design, Panel PCs can be easily and flexibly mounted where they are needed and offer a high-quality solution without compatibility problems. A Panel PC enables operation, calculation and monitoring in a single device. For this reason, the built-in monitors with integrated computing unit are often used as HMI (Human Machine Interface) for the control of larger machine systems, process visualization, industrial automation or as operator terminals in automated warehouses. Due to their space-saving design, the Panel PCs are easily suitable for use at the PoS, as an interactive kiosk system or in many other areas.
In order to ensure reliable operation in the long term, high-quality Panel PCs must be able to be mounted securely. Our Panel PC series are designed for different purposes and have the appropriate mounting method.
Panel Mounting (Screw Mounting)
For Panel Mount installation, the Panel PC and housing are inserted into the cut-out in the mounting wall. The system is screwed tightly from the rear, so the mounting wall must be accessible from the rear. The edges of the cut-out are cleanly covered by the projecting frame.
Openframe mounting is suitable for achieving particularly flat external dimensions. For this purpose, the Panel PC is screwed from the back of the mounting wall so that the frame of the Panel PC is flush with the mounting wall.
For wall mounting, the Panel PC without housing is inserted into the cutout of a mounting wall. The system is fixed to the front of the mounting wall with screws. The front panel is fixed with resistant clips or magnets. Wall mounting allows the Panel PC to be fixed at any position. The Panel PC is also easily accessible for maintenance or repairs.
Mounting via VESA is available in different versions. The Panel PCs are attached to any object using a standard VESA mounting bracket. The mounting system consists of two parts – a rail that is firmly fixed to the object to be mounted and the counterpart that is screwed to the Panel PC. If the two parts are properly fastened, the system can be hung and fixed in the fixture.
Our systems have different protection classes. Here you can get an overview of what the abbreviations mean:
- IP65 – Dust-tight and protected against water jets from any angle
- IP66 – Dust-tight and protected against strong water jets
- IP67 – Dust-tight and protected against temporary immersion
- IP69K – Dust-tight and protected against water ingress during high-pressure/steam jet cleaning and high water temperatures
- ATEX – Suitable for explosive atmospheres
Our Panel PC systems are available with the latest Windows operating systems. We will be pleased to advise you which operating system is the right one for your application. In addition, all our Panel PCs have a wide range of interfaces and powerful processors. This ensures absolute compatibility and convincing performance for your application.
