Distec enters the maritime market with Elgens' marine grade panel PCs
Manchester-based specialist technology solutions provider Distec has partnered with Elgens, to enter the maritime market.
The new arrangement will enhance the company’s industrial automation offering, with computing solutions specifically designed and certified for marine environments.
Based in New Taipei City, Taiwan, Elgens is a manufacturer of rugged computing solutions for harsh industrial environments. Through its partnership with Distec, Elgens is aiming to further grow its presence in the European market.
Elgens manufactures industrial panel PCs that are DNV compliant and certified to IEC-60945, designed specifically for the maritime market. Their specialised computer systems are designed to meet demanding and sometimes hazardous conditions found in marine environments. The rugged hardware has inbuilt protection mechanisms that shield the technology from the impact caused by conditions such as high vibration, wide operating temperatures and moisture.
Christer Stenqvist, General Manager of Distec, said: “It is essential that when we partner with an organisation, our values align. The maritime industry can be a high-pressure environment and it’s important that we provide technology that can withstand, even thrive, in harsh conditions. Elgens marine grade panel PCs are regarded not only as an industry standard but as a brand of quality, and their DNV compliance is testimony to this. We look forward to growing our maritime offering with Elgens and supporting their expansion into Europe.”
