Industrial computers in continuous use
In industry and logistics, work processes often run around the clock - regardless of the time of day or night. Since most work processes only work with the help of special industrial computers, these also run continuously. This creates certain requirements for both the software and the hardware that must be taken into account when manufacturing these computers.
This is how industrial computers are equipped for continuous operation
Protection against environmental influences plays a very important role for industrial computers in continuous use. Both in the warehouse and in production, there are often extreme conditions that normal computers cannot withstand for long. These include:
- Dust and dirt
- Humidity and splash water
- Vibration, shock and impact
- Heat and cold
In order to be able to withstand these influences even in continuous use, most industrial computers have robust as well as air- and water-impermeable housings. They are also often equipped with a thick and shatterproof touchscreen for easy operation.
