How To Choose the Right Industrial Panel PC? Oct 19, 2022

There are three main types of industrial PCs, all of which include an integrated touch display. They are: Panel PC (PPC), Touch Panel PC (TPC) and Industrial Panel PC (IPPC). Read on to learn more about each type of industrial PC, but remember, it's best to speak with an industrial automation solutions specialist before buying to make sure you get what you need.


Panel PCs

PPCs are designed for light industrial applications, with plenty of input/output and expansion options. Choose between a standard screen with resistive touchscreen or a widescreen with multi-touch. Fanless models with screens from 6.5 inches to 21.5 inches are available. PPCs are the most cost-effective type of industrial PC. 


Touch Panel PCs

Built for standard industrial applications, TPCs have a slim design with a thin client terminal. TPCs are SCADA-ready, fanless, and offer screen sizes from 5.7 inches to 21.5 inches. Of the three types of industrial PCs, TPCs have the least amount of I/O available. 


Industrial Panel PCs

IPPCs are the most robust industrial PCs, and are designed for heavy industrial applications like dairy farms and automotive plants. They’re expandable; come with installed I/O cards; have multiple drives, RAIDs and ports; and have PCI/PCIE with available slot expansion. IPPCs are also the most I/O intensive. 


Finding the Right Industrial PC to Suit your Needs

There are several variables that can get in the way of making a simple Industrial PC selection. What if: 

Your expansion requirements are larger than a PPC can accommodate?

Your environment has space constraints?

Your are under strict budgetary restrictions?

You’re in need of additional processing power, memory or storage?

You have specific I/O or RAID requirements?
