PRESS INFORMATION ‐ FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –
Avalue’s Industrial Touch Panel PCs Bring Customers Economical and Eco‐Friendly Benefits Taipei, Taiwan. July 2009 – Avalue, one of the world’s leading industrial computer manufacturers, provides tiers of Panel PCs to meet customers’ demands and applications. Typical applications include industrial‐level, rugged electronic devices, handheld terminals, infotainment display, human‐machine interfaces (HMI), and outdoor ticket machines. And with its Intel® Atom™ component, Avalue leverages its Panel PCs to thinner, wider, and greener applications. At present, Avalue has brought a full range of screen‐sized Atom‐based Panel PCs into its product categories, including: z
The LPC Series, the slim industrial automation HMI touch Panel PC, which features 8, 10, and 12‐inch panel display.
The FPC Series, the modularized touch Panel PC, which features 8.9‐inch wide to 22‐inch wide panel display.
The PPC Series, the thin client all‐in‐one cost‐effective touch terminal, which features 15, 17, and 22‐inch wide panel display.
The MTP Series, the medical‐grade multifunctional touch Panel PC, which features 12‐inch to 17‐inch panel display.
Apart from Avalue’s extensive range of screen sizes and their widespread application mentioned above, the company offers cost‐conscious customers different options, including embedded‐computing boards, panel parts, and housing materials, all of which save time and money and serve a variety of needs. Avalue is continually exploring innovative products, and focuses especially on incorporating eco‐friendly concepts in all its inventions. From the design to the production stage, Avalue’s Panel PCs are run with modular concepts to reduce costs. They also incorporate materials that will guarantee a long life, are safety compliant, and are environmentally friendly. Their slimmer appearance makes them more economical and easier to handle. At the packaging stage, Avalue endeavors to decrease the use of packing materials and shipping costs. With its exceptional attention to detail and its commitment to excellence, Avalue meets its customers’ needs for perfection in Panel PCs. Intel® Atom™ Platform: The inevitable trend for Panel PCs is that they are becoming increasingly compact. Avalue has extended its original Panel PC series and the latest designs comply with the Intel® Atom™ platform, which brings many advantages like space‐save, low power and cost, and making these products more compatible. LED Backlight Panel: Avalue’s Panel PCs use LED backlights, which reduces heat generation in Panel PCs, thereby using less power than other types of panel PCs. The LED backlight panels are
integrated with Avalue’s small screens of the FPC Series, which not only lowers the cost of the FPC Series due to greater power efficiency, but also prolongs the products’ life cycle. Sunlight Readable (Optical Bonding): With the new technology of Optical Bonding, Avalue’s panel display literally has greater luminance and contrast, and reduced internal reflections. The screens have been designed to reduce glare, facilitate maximum light transmission, and remain durable. Generally, the higher transparency and lower reflection features of the Optical Bonding panel save backlight power and cost, and add to users’ visual enjoyment. The sunlight readable panel is widely applied in places like mass transportation and outdoor kiosk pavilions. Another innovation is a privacy filter, which protects the security of on‐screen data. A specially designed film blacks out the screen at viewing angles greater than 30 degrees. The privacy filter is generally used for applications such as ATM and airplane passenger amusement. Super Anti‐Abrasion (Glass‐On‐Top): Avalue’s touch panel incorporates a Super Anti‐Abrasion (SAA) five‐wire resistive touch, which provides the best abrasion resistance and improves the safety of artificial operation. The SAA technique Avalue offered is that glass covers the top of the panel to avoid directly touching the film; it also improves the touch panel’s performance in withstanding external attacks. As reported by tests, the SAA enables Avalue’s Touch Panel PCs to reach 6.2~6.5 on the Mohs Hardness Scale, which means it is highly resistant to scratching and is very durable. Additionally, the front panel sealing also meets the IP‐65 water/dust‐proof standard, which is suitable for industrial controlling applications. Customized Peripherals: Avalue provides a variety of customization services. Avalue’s Panel PC can be easily expanded with many peripherals, including RFID, a smart card reader, a Magnetic Strip Reader (MSR), and WiFi. Talking of installation solutions, the design team of Avalue has created a number of kits and brackets for mounting solutions. There is a variety of Desktop stands, VESA arms, wall‐mounting brackets, ceiling‐mounting kits, rack‐mounting kits, embedded mounts and so on. Embedded OS and Technical Support: As a valued Windows Embedded Partner, Avalue provides embedded OS consulting and training. Avalue’s Panel PC supports embedded OS from Microsoft XP Embedded, CE, or XP Professional. Avalue’s OS‐preinstalled smart terminal will save customers money, time, and technical effort in integrating hardware and software. Moreover, Avalue provides full technical support and training for BIOS, GPIO, Driver, and API, by project, and provides advanced ID modification as well.
