pcoi_med.pngThe IMPACT pcOi is a 17" Touch Screen Operator Interface with an embedded biometric authorization/login scanner and stack light for applications requiring a long-lasting PC solution. The pcOi was specially designed to provide all the advantages of a Windows® PC at the manufacturing cell without the disadvantages associated with a traditional PC in that environment.

Rugged & Sealed Enclosure

The IMPACT pcOi was designed to exist in the harsh environment of a manufacturing floor. This rugged, yet lightweight, operator interface is completely sealed to prevent manufacturing debris and the environment from affecting the internal components of the pcOi. The custom-hinged back door provides easy access to the internal connections for installation and when service may be required.

High-temp Embedded SBC (+85C)

The IMPACT pcOi is based on a high-temperature, single board computer that supports operation with no moving parts. It provides all the standard hardware features of a traditional PC (4-USB ports, 2-Ethernet ports, Primary & Secondary IDE, 2-RS-232, Compact Flash, etc), but does not require additional cooling measures until the internal temperature regularly exceeds +85C. The pcOi has two internal fans to assist with air circulation in order to utilize the integrated heat sinks more effectively.

XP Embedded Operating System on Compact Flash

One of the key disadvantages of a traditional PC is the Windows® XP Operating System paired with a moving hard disk which is prone to failure, especially in harsh environments. The pcOi addresses this disadvantage by running Windows® XP Embedded entirely from a 4GB Compact Flash disk. XP Embedded was designed specifically for manufacturing and kiosk applications where up-time is paramount. 

Dual Ethernet Networks

2 Ethernet Network cards are standard. This provides the necessary ability to separate the cell network from the plant network. The plant network can be used to feed production data to the enterprise for database reporting, charting, SPC control, and historical archives.
