Advanced Power Components offers an anti-microbial panel PC with a Clean-Me function

Advanced Power Components, a distributor of specialist electronic components and computer products, has introduced an anti-microbial panel PC, which is available in the UK through its APC Contech business unit. APC Contech is a supplier of healthcare IT hardware solutions, including the Medigenic keyboard and mouse.

Anti-bacterial formula is mixed into the PC+ABS plastic so that the housing itself has anti-bacterial properties that are not reduced even when sterilised with alcohol swabs on a regular basis.

The Eaton Socon, Cambridgeshire-based firm says the anti-bacterial plastic suppresses the growth of up to 99.999% of bacteria, when tested over a 24-hour period.

A “Clean Me” function allows the user to disable the panel PC’s touch function for three minutes when cleaning is required. Alongside this, a full flat touchscreen is offered with the product, featuring easy wipe surfaces with no internal corners.

The device also supports PCI expansion and is RoHS compliant. The screen is a 19in, 1,280 x 1,024 LCD panel with a high performance Intel Core 2 Duo mobile processor.
