VarTech Systems, the leader in industrial environment computing, has added a new sunlight readable, 19 inch, high brightness, 1000 nits, touch screen computer to their line of rugged ToughStation IPCs. The newly released 19 inch, VESAMount computers are housed in a fully gasket-sealed 316 stainless steel, NEMA4X (IP66) enclosure as well as a NEMA 4 (IP65) black powder coated construction. This system is integrated with a powerful Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz processor with an optional T4500 2.30 GHz 800MHz FSB Intel Dual Core Processor. System memory is expandable to 4GB and features a completely fan less PC design offering impressive computing power in a quiet, low-power usage configuration.
All of VarTech’s fully enclosed, fully sealed computers can be customized to be equipped with either bottom-exiting or rear-exiting connectors as well as a host of i/o port configurations including 1 LAN port, 2 RS-232 COM ports, 3 USB 2.0 ports, 1 power on/off and 1 power connector. This allows for maximum system integration and compatibility into most industrial workstation environments. Additionally, the fully enclosed, sunlight viewable computers come standard with resistive touch technology eliminating the need for a mouse and keyboard. Other touch technologies are also available including capacitive touch and VarTech’s proprietary Armor Touch.
Shock-mounted motherboard engineering is provided via spring-loaded mountings coupled with harnessed cables from the motherboard to the computer’s I/O ports insuring the processor is not directly mounted to the enclosure and, therefore, is not affected or damaged by excessive shock and vibrations. Wide operational temperatures of -10 to 45C can be achieved with the addition of a rear dissipation heat sink for optimal temperature performance.
