(Everett, WA) – Maple Systems, has announced the release of three new additions to their Gold Series family of space-saving Panel PCs. These new slimly contoured 10 inch, 15 inch, and 17 inch Fanless models have Intel Processors and are pre-loaded with Windows XP Pro. Like all in the Gold Series, these new models are powerful state-of-the-art fully functional PC’s that will run most Windows-based software.
Larry St. Peter, president of Maple Systems stated, “Affordable, yet fortified with computing power, the Gold Series Fanless models are quiet, draw less electricity, produce less heat, and eliminate the problem of particulate matter being drawn into the unit itself – perfect for tightly sealed environments where there is no available air flow. But just as important, these flat panels are cutting edge PCs that operate most windows software applications, and they offer an affordable functional solution to innumerable manufacturing challenges and computing tasks. And unlike many of our competitors, the price on these includes the drive, the high-speed processor, the memory, and the Windows XP Professional operating system.”
With stunning high-resolution, high-brightness TFTs that support 16.7 million (24bit) colors, these innovative Gold Panel PCs are versatile precision touchscreen interfaces. In fact, all Gold Series Panel PCs can utilize Windows-compatible industrial applications as well as Maple Systems’ optional HMI/SCADA Webstudio Software – a real time supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) program for creating fully functional media-fortified web-based HMI solutions.
Maple Systems’ Gold Series flat panel PCs support the latest advances in microprocessor technology, and the Fanless models come equipped with a powerful 1.0 GHz Intel Celeron M ULV CPU. With enhanced connectivity, these industrial computers employ a high speed Ethernet port, two USB ports, and two serial ports on the 10 inch model, and four serial ports on the 15 and 17 inch models. In addition solid-state hard drives are available. Sporting a 40 GB hard drive and 256 MB of flash memory each model is expandable with numerous options and upgrades. Optional hardware enhancements include 512 MB and 1GB memory expansions, CD and DVD additions (including CD-ROM, CD-R/W, DVD-ROM, and DVD-R/W), and an 80 GB hard drive upgrade.
Sleekly designed but durable in construction, all Gold models are made with a thick anodized aluminum bezel, an electro-galvanized steel chassis, and a motherboard designed specifically to bear the conditions of harsh manufacturing scenarios. Maple Systems’ Gold Panel PCs can even withstand the rigors of water jet spraying when properly installed into a NEMA4 rated panel.
Like all members of the Gold Series Family, these three new Fanless models are geared to deal with remote data entry, remote monitoring, and scenarios that require support for multiple devices. Additionally they are RoHS compliant and include a NEMA4/IP65 certification. The Gold Series come with a one year warranty and top-notch customer service and support.
