At the MEDICA 2008 event in Düsseldorf, Germany (Hall 15 / Booth E36), Kontron premiers the compact and cost-optimised 10.4inch SVGA Kontron MediClient Panel PC for medical equipment OEMs.
A fanless medical Panel PC with a durable, lightweight plastic housing, the Kontron MediClient 104 offers IP65 protection and can be tailored to suit OEMs' corporate designs. Despite its compact size, the Kontron MediClient 104 offers a comprehensive set of interconnects including dual Ethernet (10/100), dual USB 2.0, serial RS232 (optionaly RS422/RS485) and an optional CAN bus interface. VESA arm mounting makes the fanless Kontron MediClient 104 an easy-to-integrate medical HMI for a wide spectrum of cost-sensitive OEM medical applications in operating theatres, emergency stations and other infection-sensitive areas that require sharp graphics and intuitive user interfaces in a space-saving, robust and hygienic design.
Scalable up to the 1.0GHz Intel Celeron M processor, the cost-optimised Kontron MediClient 104 features up to 1024MB of RAM and a Compact Flash socket plus an optional 2.5inch HDD for data storage. The 800x600, easy-to-read, bright (230 cd/m2) TFT touch screen, which is usable with gloves and stylus pens, is resistant to disinfectants and detergents. The plastic housing (ABS UL94V0) is scratch-proof, corrosion-resistant and chemical-resistant for long life and easy cleaning.
Shock and vibration resistance, thermal stability and compatibility with EN 60601-01 are standard features of the Kontron MediClient Panel PCs, as is long-term availability for at least five years. The fanless cooling not only reduces noise but also ensures high reliability with a MTBF of more than 40,000 hours. The CE, FCC, cULus-certified Kontron MediClient complies with US:FCC47 CFR PART15, Class A level, EN 61000-6-2 and EN 55022/A (CISPR22) regulations.
The Kontron MediClient 104 is available now. Windows CE.net, Windows XP Embedded and Embedded Linux are available as standard operating systems, along with numerous protocols, including http, XML and RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol).
