Smart Design and Ease of Use in a Versatile, Compact Panel PC Won the Best Product Award in China

Irvine, California, March 6, 2009 – Advantech, the leading global ePlatform services provider, is proud to provide a user-friendly interface in a compact, industrial-grade design with its PPC-L61T Panel PC. PPC-L61T recently won the best product award by “Control Engineering China 2008”, an award aimed at serving automated, control and instrument solutions in the China market.

The PPC-L61T is powered by an AMD LX800 processor with a bright, 6.5” LCD display, and features a fanless and compact design. The cost-effective panel PC operates in harsh environments, is vibration resistant, and is built with a sturdy aluminum front bezel. It can run Windows CE 6, XPe and SUSI for ease of programming, and supports a SATA HDD extension for added storage. PPC-L61T is designed for industrial computing applications such as factory and machine automation.

Reliable Fanless Operation with Dual Power Modes and Multiple Mounting Solutions

PPC L61T can withstand vibrations of 1G, and its robust aluminum design is perfect for long-term use. PPC-L61T supports dual-power AT and ATX, and its low-power, no-fan-required AMD LX800 CPU makes it highly reliable. Low-power design reduces thermal emissions, and lowers energy costs. PPC-L61T installation is simple, and designed with system integrators in mind. It uses a minimal cabling and offers flexible panel mounting or VESA mounting options.

Storage, Connectivity and Choice of Operating Systems Increase Flexibility

PPC-L61T comes with a mini PCI connector for convenient wireless LAN solutions. A SATA HDD module is available, increasing storage capacity for data or application use. Operating system options are Windows® CE 6.0, and Windows® XPe, and with the use of Advantech’s SUSI (Secure and Unified Smart Interface) API suite, programming is easy.

Flexible Customization Options and Sunlight-Readable Solution

PPC-L61T is also fully-customizable, saving time and money. RS-232/422/485 COM ports are adjustable in the BIOS; and choices of chassis color, logo and other installation accessories are readily available. PPC-L61T also features a sunlight-readable, resistive touchscreen, perfect for use in outdoor applications.

PPC-L61T is ready to order, and backed by Advantech’s reliable support and manufacturing services. It is fully certified with CE, FCC, UL, CCC, BSD and VCCI standards.
