Hardware specialist BRESSNER Technology now offers fanless panel PCs "ORCA PRO" with 11th Gen. Intel® Core™ processors and a corrosion-resistant full IP69K stainless steel housing for food processing applications.
System integrator and value-added hardware provider BRESSNER Technology expands its portfolio of touch panel solutions with the new ORCA PRO series. The model range consists of fanless Full IP69K panel PCs with stainless steel chassis, available in 22- or 24-inch screen diagonals. An Intel® Tigerlake Core™ i5-1145G7E processor is integrated to meet Windows 11 standard requirements. The units are designed specifically for industrial operations, chemical labs, and food processing industries.
A SUS316-standardized stainless steel enclosure is part of the ORCA PRO series' basic equipment and protects the devices from oxidation and corrosion caused by water or acidic/alkaline liquids. The brushed stainless steel makes it difficult for germs and bacteria to spread, which is especially beneficial for industries with high hygiene guidelines. All ORCA panel PC models are IP67 certified as standard and can even achieve up to IP69K through optional configuration and adjustments to the housing structure. This maximum upgrade even allows the operator terminals to withstand cleaning with high-pressure devices as well as steam jets.
The 22- and 24-inch panel PCs offer a resistive or PCAP multi-touch screen with a maximum resolution of 1920x1080 and can even be operated with latex gloves. An optional high-brightness display with a luminance of up to 1,000 nits can be installed. Furthermore, customers can configure additional interfaces to the already existing USB, Ethernet and serial ports (with IP67 circular connectors) on request. The devices meet all hardware requirements to manage a Windows 11 installation.
"There are strict requirements for enclosures and hardware equipment in the food and beverage industry, as well as for manufacturing and factory automation machines. The devices have to be sanitized under extreme conditions and still remain fully operable," explains Markus Schumacher, Senior Account Manager for panel PCs and touch displays at BRESSNER Technology. "The ORCA PRO panel PC models are up to these challenges while featuring a state-of-the-art tech build."
