The POLARIS Panel PC 12.1″ is an innovative further development of the POLARIS PROFESSIONAL Serie. 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 panel PC has been equipped as standard with the Dual Core Processor AMD T40E/2 x 1.0 GHz; 4 GB RAM. Windows 7® Ultimate or Windows 7® Embedded MUI can be used as an operating system. Thanks to the integrated keyboard customisation for Windows®, Siemens WinCC flexible®, RS View® or BMS-Graf-pro, the POLARIS Touch panels can be used for all visualisation tasks. They can be connected to the control or the process control system through Ethernet, PROFIBUS-DP or various serial COM interfaces. Of course, here too the user can work with the latest BMS-Graf-Pro Version 7, allowing for example the transfer of projects through Ethernet, the use of graphics lists and the integrated user administration. Wired electrical connections are facilitated by integrated terminal compartments. The front-panel fitting design ensures easy installation. On request, the devices are also available as ready-made system solutions in Stainless-steel enclosure for wall or floor mounting. They also feature an intrinsically safe USB interface for a USB Ex i flash drive. Intrinsically safe input devices can also be connected.
