Panel-PC 3 with 21,5" Display for maritime Applications

The Panel-PC 3 is a modular and scalable industrial computer with display front panel. It is designed for installation in enclosure doors. Therefore, all connections are made on the rear side from the bottom.

Thanks to the modular construction of the Panel-PC, its front side can freely be designed, following the customers’ request. At choice are, for example, front panels from stainless steel, powder-coated steel, or aluminum front panels with membrane keyboard and touchpad. Client-specific designs are possible, also for smaller quantities. High-quality TFT displays are installed with sizes from 10.4" to 21.5". The backlight is realized using long-life LED technique. For maritime applications, it can strongly be dimmed.


The Panel-PC is supplied with capacitive touch sensor, to assure user-friendly input. For protection from moisture, and for improved image quality, the display features optical bonding between touch sensor and antireflective cover glass. At all variants, the front side protection meets IP65.

Actually, four Dual-Core processors are available from the Intel "Haswell" family (TDP 15W): Celeron with 1.6GHz clock frequency, Core-i3 with 1.7GHz clock frequency, Core-i5 with 1.9GHz clock frequency and Core-i7 with 1.7GHz clock frequency. These processors are part of Intel’s Embedded product range which grants long-term availability for five years, or more.

The well thought-out cooling concept features fully passive cooling of all components, across a wide range of operating temperatures between -15 and 55°C. No maintenance-demanding fans are applied.

For power supply, the Panel-PC has a wide-range 24V-DC input. The concept of the Panel-PC is completed by its optional equipment with WLAN, Bluetooth and Solid-State drives (SSD).
