Healthy savings on medical HMI

Kontron has introduced a 10.4in SVGA panel PC, which is cost-optimised for medical equipment. The new Kontron MediClient 104 is a fanless medical panel PC with a durable, lightweight plastic housing that offers IP65 protection and can be tailored to suit corporate designs. A range of interconnects are incorporated including: dual Ethernet, dual USB 2.0, serial RS232 and an optional CAN bus interface. VESA arm mounting makes it ideal as a medical HMI for cost-sensitive OEM applications in operating theatres, emergency stations and other infection-sensitive areas that require an intuitive user interface in a robust and hygienic design.

The 800 by 600, 230cd/m bright TFT touch screen can be used with gloves or stylus pens and is resistant to disinfectants and detergents. The plastic housing is also said to be scratch-proof, corrosion resistant and chemical resistant for long life and easy cleaning.

Shock and vibration resistance, thermal stability and compatibility with EN60601-01 are standard features of this panel PC, as is availability of at least five years.
