RuggedClient-KLU: 21.5″ Widescreen Fanless Panel PC with 7th Gen Intel® Core™ U-Series Processors

Cost-effective HMI to Enjoy 7th Gen Intel® Core™ Platform Performance

Kontron, a leading global provider of IoT / Embedded Computing Technology (ECT), is pleased to launch a new widescreen panel PC, named RuggedClient-KLU, providing factory owners a budget-friendly all-in-one computing system to enjoy more dynamic high-definition visualization of the processes happening in the production lines or on the factory floors.

A Great-value Visualization and Control Center

RuggedClient-KLU incorporates a 21.5″ widescreen resistive touch screen into an all-in-one unit. The 21.5 inch is the smallest popular widescreen size supporting Full HD resolution. It is a perfectly cost-effective option to deliver detailed enough visual quality to the users. In addition, the widescreen format provides more viewing space and flexible split-screen configuration, allowing operators to reach more information at one glance without frequent toggling, which can lead to significant enhancement in productivity. Integrated with 5-wire resistive touch technology, RuggedClient-KLU is not only friendly for operators to visualize and control the processes, but also friendly for owners to lower ownership cost.

High Visual Performance

The power of graphics processing is a critical technical index as visualization applications become more automated, sophisticated and interactive. RuggedClient-KLU is powered by 7th-generation Intel Core™ / Celeron® U-Series processors with 7th-generation Intel HD Graphics integrated. With 2-digit graphics performance enhancement, it can have flawless playback rendering even at a better frame rate. In addition, the series supports maximum three displays at a time. Users can connect two external 4K monitors via DP and HDMI 2.0 interfaces to increase the productivity.

Resistant against Tough Industrial Environments

Protected by a robust gasket-sealed aluminum front bezel, RuggedClient-KLU is compliant with IP65 rating. It can block water spray and dust from entering the system from the front side. The passive cooling design can minimize dust accumulation as well to prevent fan failure or heat dissipation interference. It is ideal for install in harsh, wet and / or dusty industrial environments, such as food, & beverage factory, chemical production, outdoors or semi-outdoor conditions.

The list below summarizes the features and specifications of RuggedClient-KLU.
