Medical all-in-one Panel PC from Kontron
Kontron, provider of IoT/embedded computing technology, has introduced an all-in-one panel PC that meets the stringent hygiene and connectivity requirements in the medical and healthcare sector. The system is compliant with DIN EN 60601-1 and is particularly suitable for use in nurses’ stations, operating rooms, intensive care units, and laboratories as well as pharmacies and clean rooms.
With its robust, joint-free front made of continuous tempered glass, the MediClient is easy to clean. The rear of the device, made of powder-coated stainless steel, is just as easy to clean and disinfect and ensures lasting mechanical stability.
The PCAP touch display with anti-glare and anti-fingerprint surface finish can be operated even with overlapping medical gloves and is perfectly readable even in difficult lighting conditions. The touchscreen in 16:9 format detects drops (drop rejection) and supports palm rejection.
Easy integration into the infrastructure is enabled by the integrated power supply, which is isolated according to EN 60601-1. Data transfer between different medical devices and hospital information systems is ensured by wireless interfaces (WiFi, BT) and the EN 60601-1 certified and isolated interfaces. In addition, the MediClient supports the SDC standard and thus standardided communication across manufacturer boundaries.
The new MediClient has a special design feature: the device consists of two separable functional units, the display unit with display and PCAP touch as well as the computing unit with CPU and memory, so that both units are easily exchangeable in case of service requirements.
The Kontron MediClient all-in-one Panel PC is shock and vibration resistant and offers numerous standard interfaces with compact dimensions, including 4 x USB 3.2 Gen 2, 2 x GbE (2 MOOP), 3 x RS232 (2 MOOP) and 2 x DP++.
The fanless design ensures silent operation and high reliability with an MTBF of more than 50,000 hours.Thanks to VESA 100 mounting, the panel PC can be mounted on swivel arms or wall mounts in just a few steps. The MediClient supports Windows 10 IOT and Linux and is equipped with Intel Core i5-8365UE processors or Intel Celeron 4305UE processors as standard.
Customised solutions can be implemented quickly and cost-effectively, from flexibility in computing performance and memory expansion, to application-specific touch settings, I/O customisations, security hardening of BIOS and operating system, software installation, individual branding, customised service and repair kits, up to special packaging.
The MediClient with 21.5" touchscreen is available. Variants with 23.8" display and a monitor variant will be added in early 2022.
