Portwell Europe has launched its FUDA3 Touch Panel PC Series, a new energy-efficient and powerful fan-less Panel PC with a resistive single-touch or projective capacitive multi-touch screen. Powered by Intel Atom x7-E3950 quad-core processor (12W max. TDP, 2M Cache, 1.6 GHz up 2.0GHz) integrating Intel HD Graphic Gen 9 engine, flexible I/O connectivity and two times higher GPU computing power than FUDA2 series PPC (Intel Atom E3845 platform).
"The fan-less design ensures silent operation, improved reliability and reduced maintenance costs," says Penny Liao, Portwell product manager.
"Equipped with a responsive touch screen and an industrial panel display available in 10.4",12.1" and 15", Portwell's FUDA3 Touch Panel PC Series includes an IP65-rated front panel and is housed in an aluminium bezel with anodising coating. This allows the FUDA3 Touch Panel PC Series to operate reliably in harsh environments," Liao adds.
Also, the device features all the needed interfaces for industrial applications: 1 x HDMI, 2 x Gigabit Ethernet, 2x USB 3.0, 1x USB OTG, and it can be expandable to include 2 x RS- 232/422/485, 2 x USB 2.0 or 2 x RS-232/422/485, 1 x RS-232 via selectable I/O kit options. Moreover, it allows 1 x 2.5" SATA HDD/SSD, 1 x Half-size mini-mSATA for storage capacity and one SMA antenna interface that offers optional Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and LTE function through a full-size mini-PCIe socket.
Compared to many Panel PCs in the market, the operating temperature of the PC can vary from -25C to 60C despite its fanless design. The cableless structure also optimises the thermal dissipation and provides durability and reliability in harsh environments.
The PC also supports 12~24V (±20%) wide range DC input for different operating environments. It provides panel mounting and is provided with standard 75mm x 75mm and 100mm x 100mm VESA mounting holes. It supports many mainstream operating systems, including Microsoft Windows 10 and Linux.
"With its refined appearance, rugged mechanical chassis, multiple modular flexibility and complete certification, the FUDA3 Series Touch Panel PC application-oriented design and rigid laboratory testing provide customers with an ideal HMI solution for factory automation, CNC machine, textile industry and kiosk," affirms Liao.
