The Criterias to Consider Before Buying Industrial Panel PC

We have brought together what you need to consider when choosing an Industrial Panel PC.

Industrial Panel PCs combine the advantages of traditional desktop computers with touch screen control. Industrial Panel PCs have many holding, connection and mounting options, making them suitable for human-machine interface (HMI), automation or industrial control applications. However, choosing the right system for your particular project and installation environment can be difficult. Here are some factors to consider before purchasing an Industrial Panel PC.


Capacitive (PCAP) or Resistive Touch Screens?

Industrial Panel PCs have two different types of touch screens, capacitive (PCAP) and resistive. Capacitive (PCAP) touchscreens sense the position of the contact using the electrostatic field interference generated by the interaction of the touchpad. In contrast, resistive screens indicate the point of contact by changing the resistance within the screen with finger or stylus pressure. Capacitive (PCAP) touch screens are preferred in applications that require detailed touch sensitivity and light pressure contact detection. On the other hand, resistive screens are often preferred in industrial environments where operators may wear gloves. IPC4 Industrial Panel PCs offer both types of touch screens, allowing you to choose the one that best suits your application.



How the Panel PC is mounted

Before purchasing any industrial flat Panel PC, consider where the IPC4 Industrial Panel PC will be mounted. Will it be fixed inside another enclosure or machine, attached to a bracket, or mounted to a wall? Choosing the right size panel is important if the IPC4 Industrial Panel PC is to be embedded in a kiosk, large appliance, or any enclosure. Be sure to check the size, depth of each IPC4 Industrial Panel PC you are considering to avoid installation delays. If your equipment, vehicles or machines require a PC panel, you should consider the IPC4 Industrial Panel PC, a panel mount option. Panel mounting allows the touchpad to be mounted flat on the front of the enclosure, as opposed to mounting the panel on a wall or stand. This mounting arrangement is often popular in food production or particulate-intensive environments that require frequent cleaning. Your IPC4 Industrial Panel PCs come with many mounting options to suit your needs.



Does IP Rating Matter?

The IP (Ingress Protection) rating of an Industrial Panel PC is an important consideration depending on the environment you plan to use it in. The IP rating indicates how effectively the enclosure seals liquid and solid intrusions. Industrial Panel PCs usually have IP65 or IP67 ratings. The first digit in the IP rating indicates the ability to stop interfering solids, from operators' fingers to debris and dust. The highest solids response rating is 6 and the system is protected against even dust particles. The second digit in the IP rating relates to how effectively the enclosure is liquid-sealed. The highest rating for this class is 8, which means the entire case is waterproof and can be submerged deeper than 1 meter.



What size Industrial Panel PC do you need?

One of the advantages of IPC4 Industrial Panel PCs is that they come in a wide range of sizes from 7 inches to 2.38 inches to fit almost any situation. When choosing the right size, you may be limited by a number of factors, depending on your application. It is necessary to consider whether the Panel PC will be mounted on an arm or stand or placed elsewhere. If mounting is to be done, the weight of the IPC4 system can also be a factor. In addition, the resolution of the instrument panel, the clarity and size of the image to be displayed should also be considered. Whether the application requires a standard (4:3) or widescreen (16:9) screen format is another consideration among the display options available on our IPC4 Panel PCs.
