The industrial PC for mobile data acquisition
In industry and also logistics, mobile and timely data collection is very important. Since the areas and halls are usually very large, the terminals for this should be portable and easy to use.
What requirements must industrial PCs for mobile data acquisition meet?
For industrial PCs to be used for mobile data acquisition, they must meet a number of requirements. On the one hand, they must be able to withstand the influences in industry and logistics. These include:
- Dust and dirt
- Heat and cold
- Influence of water (humidity, spray and jet water)
- Vibrations and shock
To meet these requirements, the industrial PCs are equipped with a robust housing and touchscreen, which do not allow liquids or the smallest particles such as dust to pass through.
In addition, industrial PCs for mobile data acquisition must be able to be used anywhere and at any time. For that, they usually come in the form of handy tablets. However, they can also be distributed as panel PCs in the warehouse or production facility so that employees have access to the systems everywhere.
