The POLARIS Touch Panel 12.1″ is an innovative further development of the POLARIS Panel PCs 12.1″. High-resolution displays with LED technology and touchscreen for intuitive as well as comfortable operation are available now in the standard variant. State-of-the-art LED display technology ensures the optimum contrast even with a large viewing angle. The proven LX800 offers sufficient computer capacity for presenting HTML pages or functioning as a remote client. Of course, here too the user can work with the latest “BMS-Graf-pro” Runtime 7 under Windows® XP Embedded, for example for the transmission of projects over the Ethernet, the use of graphics lists or an integrated user administration. The front-panel fitting makes mounting easy. On request, the devices are also available as turn-key system solutions in a Stainless-steel enclosure for wall or floor mounting. An intrinsically safe USB interface is available for a USB Ex i memory stick. Intrinsically safe input devices can also be connected.
