Part of VarTech’s ToughStation series line of industrial computers and workstations, the new VTPC320VHB daylight readable, widescreen, LCD, all in one computer is a rugged indoor and outdoor IPC capable of 1400 nits display brightness operating at an impressive operational temperature range of -30 to +70C. The new large screen LCD computer is powered by the latest Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz processor with 2GB of system memory featuring Window’s XP operating system (Windows Embedded or Windows 7 optional). Multiple mounting configurations including wall and ceiling mount in either landscape or portrait orientations are available. This system is a NEMA 4 IP65 fully enclosed, black-powder coat finished PC with no external vents offering weather resistant protection against water, dirt, dust, flying debris and humidity.
The LCD display screen of the VTPC320VHB has an optically bonded anti-reflective protective window for added shock and vibration protection and reduced solar reflectivity providing increased outdoor viewing ability. It is integrated with VarTech's proprietary Optical Stack Enhancement (OSE) which is a unique optical design that boosts efficiency of the backlight's light utilization and minimizes the surface reflection of ambient light. Optionally, the VTPC320VHB is available with impact resistant cover glass or vandal resistant, scrape-resistant touch screen technologies. A multitude of inputs can be included on this IPC including dual gigabit LAN ports, PS/2 keyboard & mouse support, vga output, RS-232 and USB 2.0.

The VTPC320VHB widescreen, LCD, daylight viewable computer can be used in a number of indoor and outdoor environments and workflows. It can serve as interactive computers, information and totem kiosks, multimedia workstations, and training simulation applications. It is also ideal for transportation industry applications such as arrival / departure traveler information systems for scheduling as well as real-time transit vehicle arrivals and departures in areas like railway depots, airport terminals and bus stations. The industrial all in one, LCD computer is also effective as an outdoor digital signage display for exhibiting information in high ambient lighting settings such as way-finding applications in public areas, parks and shopping centers. The VTPC320VHB can also be affective in security solution purposes at plant entrance gates and check points. Mining is also a suitable use for this display such as tunnel boring or other underground mining situations where real-time data or imagery needs to be updated and retrieved by those at ground level.
