Available with 12-, 15-, 17- or 19-in diagonal displays and touch screens, the PPC65 family of panel PCs is powered by a fully integrated 1.6 GHz Intel Atom based single board computer (SBC) which offers a multitude of I/O connectivity options. The front bezels on these panel PCs are environmentally sealed to comply with NEMA 4/IP65 specifications to prevent damaging moisture, dust, and dirt from getting into it. They are targeted for medical, utility, security, transportation, pipeline, industrial test/measurement, and food processing applications that need tight system integration and minimal space requirements.

WinSystems’ PPC65 family of panel PCs has design features that reportedly allow each unit to meet and exceed industry standards for RF emissions, susceptibility, and shock/vibration. The PPC65s have been tested for electrical and electromagnetically induced or radiated interference that could possibly degrade its performance when electronic and electrical systems are in close proximity and confined spaces. They comply with IEC 61000 electrical Fast Transient, Surge, Drop in Power, Conducted Susceptibility, and Conducted Immunity tests. Also, the PPC65 product family of products is tested and compliant with FCC Part 15 B and CE EMC Directive 2004/108/EC. Additionally, they can withstand 1.0G vibration and 15Gs of shock.

The PPC65 products support operating systems such as Linux, Windows XPe, CE 6.0, WES7, and Windows 7. The SBC includes 2 GB of system memory with either or both an optional customer-installed SATA drive and CompactFlash SSD. I/O support includes a Gigabit Ethernet port, four USB 2.0, and two RS-232 serial channels. The system requires +12 Vdc but a version that accepts +24 Vdc to +48 Vdc is also available.

WinSystems can also customize the Panel PC for OEM applications with a black chassis, custom art for the bezel, and preloaded operating system. A WinSystems factory application engineer will assist the designer with technical details and lead times.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
