Bringing Fast PC Technology to Hazardous Areas


STAHL announced at SPS 2015 it will equip its Eagle and Manta series of rugged Panel PCs with third-generation Bay Trail processors, replacing the Intel Atom N270 processors currently in use. The company says this new family of processors will multiply by four the speed of computers designed for hazardous environments.

With a thermal design power requirement of 10 watts and 64-bit support, the new quad-core processor platform is extremely powerful and highly efficient, offering top performance even in very dangerous areas. The PCs will also come with a Windows Embedded Standard 7 operating system.

R. STAHL say they will be the first manufacturer to bring this fast PC-based HMI technology to hazardous areas. The official commercial launch of this upgrade will occur at the beginning of 2016.
