Panel PCs with IP65 protection — your systems’ calling card

The panel PCs in our Designline series combine high-performance technology with an attractive design. They are narrow, feature IP65 protection and multi-touch capability. Because they can be installed quickly and easily directly on the machine, you’ll always find them close to the action.

Their fanless, energy-efficient design makes them the ideal solution for future operating concepts in industrial systems: easy maintenance, custom configurations and robust.

DL series IPCs can be mounted directly on the machine. This allows these devices to be used, for example, as a hardware platform in your manufacturing execution system. You’ll save space because there is no need for a separate housing. Plus, the device can be installed at eye level on the front of the machine.

All the key components are very accessible, which means that service can be performed easily.
