Advantech Co., Ltd. (Taiwan) - With its all-encompassing waterproof design the SPC-2140WP is a 21.5” widescreen multitouch stationary panel PCs, specifically designed to provide easier operation and boost productivity in areas that require frequent jet washing.
This iF Award winning device, has been honored with the award, not only for its appearance but also being extremely intuitive to use. With their two pale blue soft-keys that, when lightly touched, give users quick and easy access to the information they need, the SPC-2140 allows the convenient viewing of information.
Operators must be comfortable during their working hours and since HMI is their connection to the system, its functionality must evolve both in terms of functionality and in term of physical usage. As a consequence, the screen is not panel mounted anymore, but it is connected to the system via an arm allowing the operator to adjust it.
A slender, elegant aluminum housing not only emphasizes modernity but also offers all-around IP66 protection showing mechanical stability and reliability. Using M12 connectors and the ability to connect to a VESA arm allows the device to withstand high water pressure and offers a high level of waterproofing in humid environments. In areas such as food and beverage, and chemical manufacturing where frequent cleaning is a necessity, the SPC is ideal as it and its connectors are protected against dust and water to enable them to survive the rigors of jet washing and scrubbing whilst they are hung on either pedestals or pendants.
To further aid this, it features a widescreen with a ratio of 16:9, providing 40% more screen area than 4:3 displays. Furthermore, with the addition of multitouch capabilities they provide even greater control and viewing of SCADA information.
All of this is made possible with the inclusion of an AMD 1.65 GHz processor with independent graphical processing unit which provides support for Windows 8 and DirectX11 so it can handle more complicated and detailed graphics.
The SPC-2140WP is available now.
