Making Flat Panel Computer Systems Work in Harsh Environments
Custom software applications can turn any standard Microsoft® Windows®-based computer
into a powerful industrial process control or data acquisition platform. But many
industrial applications occur in physically strenuous environments where standard computing
systems won’t survive for long. To address these limitations, manufacturers are producing rugged computer systems that bring the simplicity of a Microsoft Windows based PC to tough field applications. These rugged systems offer a very viable solution to the problems of extreme industrial environments.
