Avalue debuts rugged touchscreen panel PCs ARC-21W33/ARC-21W34


Avalue Technology Inc. (TAIEX: 3479-TW), a global industrial PC solution provider and an associate member of the Intel® Internet of Things Solutions Alliance. Designed to be waterproof, dustproof, shockproof and scratchproof, Avalue ARC-series rugged touchscreen panel PCs are built to withstand harsh operating environments and suitable for most work settings, including information terminal, library navigation and automatic borrowing/lending/inquiry system, kiosk and factory automation. With their wide operating temperature range and readability under sunlight, and coating technology for PCAP touchscreen, their ruggedness is best demonstrated in an outdoor setting.

 

The ARC-21W33/ ARC-21W34 touchscreen PCs are the latest additions to the ARC series. With larger screen size of 21.5-inch, the rugged panel PCs are built with either Intel® Celeron J3455 (ARC-21W33) or Intel®Core i5-7300U(ARC-21W34), and are protected by IP-65 rating in the front and IP-41 rating at the back of the PC, making them suitable for use in humid and dusty operating environments. The ARC-21W33/ ARC-21W34’s wide temperature and pressure range reduces instability in voltage, and consequent system unavailability, due to rapid temperature changes. Easy-to-install fanless open-frame modular design also ensures stable operation in harsh environments.

 

As bright light, reflection and rapid lighting changes during outdoor usage can cause visual interference, Avalue uses multiple coating technologies to improve user experience. For instance, anti-glare coating solves problems caused by changes in lighting conditions, fogging and dirt, effectively reducing screen surface reflection and lighting interference; anti-reflection coating reduces light reflection; and anti-fingerprint coating protects against water, fingerprint and annoying grease. These coatings reinforce stability of the touchscreen panel and improve convenience of use, meeting customization and coating requirements at the same time. They also add value to the ARC-21W33/ ARC-21W34’s application capability outdoor and in industrial automation.

 

Continuing the ARC series’ characteristic ruggedness, and high degree of expandability and customization, the Avalue ARC-21W33/ ARC-21W34 offer an open frame for flexible expansion, which includes 2.5-inch hot swap HDD, HDMI, COM, MPCIe, and GPIO and CAN Bus expansion, enabling users to quickly assemble and expand according to their specific budget and specifications, which shorten the R&D process, reduce management costs, and allow for gradual upgrade to industry 4.0. Besides industrial automation, human-machine interface and in-vehicle system, the Avalue ARC-21W33/ ARC-21W34 are expected to bring tremendous benefits and performance to even more IoT related industries.
