Improved graphics and computing performance
Augsburg, Germany, January 31, 2018 – Kontron, a leading global provider of IoT/Embedded Computing Technology (ECT), is equipping its FlatClient family of Panel PCs with the latest 7th Gen Intel® Core™ processors. The rugged Panel PCs designed for industrial applications offer maximum flexibility at a favorable price. Users benefit from improved graphics and computing performance through the update to the latest processor technology.
The FlatClient Panel PCs have proven themselves successfully in high-volume implementations in industrial applications. They are available in numerous versions covering display sizes from 10.4 inches (25.7 cm) to 23.8 inches (60.5 cm). They are available in both 16:9 and 16:10 widescreen format, as well as 4:3 and 5:4 standard format. Kontron is one of a select few manufactures in the marketplace offering up-to-date processor and display technology in 4:3 and 5:4 regular format devices. FlatClients feature a full-metal housing and are available in versions for independent operation with VESA mount or as built-in devices. They are available with PCAP, resistive touch screen or protection glass and can optionally be equipped with RFID readers.
The Kontron FlatClient Panel PC family is structured in two distinct lines: the ECO Line features Intel Atom® processors, while the PRO Line is based on Intel® Core™ CPUs. Depending on the processor used, Kontron FlatClient Panel PCs support the Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 operating systems including Embedded versions, Windows 10 IoT and Linux.
The design of the FlatClient models can be customized to meet customer requirements, for example by freely choosing the color of the front and back of the devices and providing them with individual logos. All FlatClient devices are characterized by their fanless design, are highly shock- and vibration resistant and feature an easy-to-clean, anti-glare and scratch-resitant front glass with IP65 protection.
The FlatClient family supports Kontron’s Security Solution APPROTECT. In tandem with a specifically developed software framework, it provides full IP and copy/reverse engineering protection through a WIBU-Systems security chip. Additionally, Kontron's APPROTECT Licensing enables new business models such as 'pay per use' or time-based trial versions, as it can be used to easily enable or disable features via a predetermined set of variables. For secure cloud connectivity, a TPM 2.0 Security Chip is integrated.
All FlatClient Panel PCs are CE and cULus certified.
