How to select the right IP66 panel PC?

When selecting the right IP66 panel PC, there are several factors to consider. SENOR has some key considerations for you to consider:

  • Environmental requirements:
    Determine the specific environmental conditions the panel PC will be exposed to, such as temperature extremes, moisture levels, and the presence of dust or debris. Ensure that the panel PC meets or exceeds the necessary IP66 rating for protection against these elements.
  • Performance and specifications:
    Consider the required processing power, memory, storage capacity, and connectivity options based on the intended applications. Ensure that the panel PC has the necessary performance capabilities to handle the desired tasks efficiently.
  • Display and touch functionality:
    Evaluate the screen size, resolution, and touch capabilities based on the intended usage. Consider factors such as readability in bright sunlight, glove-friendly touchscreens, and the need for multi-touch or capacitive touch technology.
  • Mounting options:
    Determine the mounting requirements for the panel PC. Consider whether it needs to be wall-mounted, panel-mounted, or integrated into a specific enclosure or system.
  • Expansion and customization:
    Assess whether the panel PC offers expansion slots or interfaces to connect additional peripherals or custom modules, depending on the specific requirements of your application.
  • Certifications and standards:
    Verify if the panel PC complies with industry-specific certifications or standards, such as those for hazardous environments (ATEX), medical environments (UL 60601), or industrial automation (CE, FCC, RoHS).
  • Reliability and durability:
    Look for panel PCs that are built to withstand harsh conditions and have a proven track record of reliability. Consider factors such as rugged construction, shock and vibration resistance, and extended temperature range capabilities.
  • Long-term availability and support:
    Ensure that the panel PC is backed by a reputable manufacturer or supplier who can provide long-term availability, support, and warranty services.
