Arestech Co. Ltd., an expert in embedded and automation solutions, is pleased to announce the launch of the PPC-321, a new 21.5” multi-touch Panel PC equipped with a 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7 / i5 / i3 processor.
According to NPD DisplaySearch 2012 Touch Panel Market Analysis, “Total touchscreen module revenue will reach US$16 billion in 2012, and nearly double in six years, reaching US$31.9 billion by 2018.”
“Projected capacitive touch displays are now the dominant form of touch technology. They enhance user performance with high transmittance that provides clearer images, have impact resistant surfaces that deter scratches, and include multi-touch and gesture recognition. All these features help to create devices that are easier to use, provide for a more positive user experience, and have increased longevity of service.” said Richard Hung, General Manager at Arestech.
Arestech’s PPC-321 is a TFT Full HD panel with projected capacitive touch technology that supports touchscreen use with gloves via increased screen sensitivity—ideal for meeting the high demands of harsh environments. The PPC-321 is also equipped with dual GbE LAN ports and PCI expansion capability that supports I/O cards, communication cards and motion cards, that make connecting multiple devices easy when integrating solutions, especially in the automation industry.
The multi-touch screen responds quickly with almost no force needed to perform tasks on the display and is optimized for durability with the highest amount of transparency possible. The PPC-321 supports multi-touch and Windows Touch gesture controls for the ultimate user-friendly touchscreen experience.
Other PPC-321 features include a swappable 2.5" SATA drive bay, fanless design and two PCI slots. The PPC-321 is designed for uses where ease of installation, slimness of design and touchscreen convenience are most important—human machine interface (HMI), factory automation, manufacturing automation, ATM/self-services and medical service applications.
