Light Industrial Panel PCs are used where ruggedness is not as important as functionality. These Light Industrial Panel PCs are Multimedia Compatible with full audio capability, as well as NEMA 4 front panels. Mounting options include Panel, Rack, Wall, Arm or Stand. afl2-w15b-h61-icon.jpg (18168 bytes)

Heavy Industrial Panel PCs are built for extreme environments. These units are built with all metal chassis and feature NEMA 4 protected front panels. Miller Technologies offers a wide variety of sizes, styles, processors and functionality to choose from. Front bezels are available in cast aluminum, steel, and stainless steel.

Sealed Panel PCs have NEMA 4X/IP65 compliant front and rear panels, and use specially designed connector covers to protect the connector area from moisture. These sealed systems are available with cast aluminum or stainless steel enclosures. Both Resistive and capacitive touch screens are available. Ideal for food processing, clean rooms, and any application where wash down is important.

Industrial Workstations are rack mountable PCs with built-in LCD displays and keypads for data entry. Touch screens are normally available as an option. Workstations provide enhanced expandability and membrane keypads for greater flexibility.

Rugged Mobile & Vehicle Mount PCs are built to withstand the rigors of vibration and shock. These PCs feature powerful computing platforms and all of the I/O required to interface to any external functions you will need. Many of these mobile PCs feature fanless operation. tank-720-q67.jpg (120421 bytes)

NEMA Ratings
NEMA 4 - Enclosures constructed for either indoor or outdoor use to provide a degree of protection to personnel against access to hazardous parts; to provide a degree of protection of the equipment inside the enclosure against ingress of solid foreign objects (falling dirt and windblown dust); to provide a degree of protection with respect to harmful effects on the equipment due to the ingress of water (rain, sleet, snow, splashing water, and hose directed water); and that will be undamaged by the external formation of ice on the enclosure.

NEMA 4X - Enclosures constructed for either indoor or outdoor use to provide a degree of protection to personnel against access to hazardous parts; to provide a degree of protection of the equipment inside the enclosure against ingress of solid foreign objects (windblown dust); to provide a degree of protection with respect to harmful effects on the equipment due to the ingress of water (rain, sleet, snow, splashing water, and hose directed water); that provides an additional level of protection against corrosion; and that will be undamaged by the external formation of ice on the enclosure.

NEMA 12 - Enclosures constructed (without knockouts) for indoor use to provide a degree of protection to personnel against access to hazardous parts; to provide a degree of protection of the equipment inside the enclosure against ingress of solid foreign objects (falling dirt and circulating dust, lint, fibers, and flyings); and to provide a degree of protection with respect to harmful effects on the equipment due to the ingress of water (dripping and light splashing).

NEMA 13 - Enclosures constructed for indoor use to provide a degree of protection to personnel against access to hazardous parts; to provide a degree of protection of the equipment inside the enclosure against ingress of solid foreign objects (falling dirt and circulating dust, lint, fibers, and flyings); to provide a degree of protection with respect to harmful effects on the equipment due to the ingress of water (dripping and light splashing); and to provide a degree of protection against the spraying, splashing, and seepage of oil and non-corrosive coolants.

IP Ratings

The First Digit indicates the level of protection that the enclosure provides against access to hazardous parts (e.g., electrical conductors, moving parts) and the ingress of solid foreign objects.

Object size protected against:

0 - No protection against contact and ingress of objects.
 
1 - >50 mm. Any large surface of the body, such as the back of a hand, but no protection against deliberate contact with a body part.

2 - >12.5 mm. Fingers or similar objects.

3 - >2.5 mm. Tools, thick wires, etc.

4 - >1 mm. Most wires, screws, etc.

5 - Dust protected ingress of dust is not entirely prevented, but it must not enter in sufficient quantity to interfere with the satisfactory operation of the equipment; complete protection against contact.

6 - Dust tight no ingress of dust; complete protection against contact.

Second Digit
Protection of the equipment inside the enclosure against harmful ingress of water.

0 - Not protected.

1 - Dripping water Dripping water (vertically falling drops) shall have no harmful effect.

2 - Dripping water when tilted up to 15 Vertically dripping water shall have no harmful effect when the enclosure is tilted at an angle up to 15 from its normal position.

3 - Spraying water Water falling as a spray at any angle up to 60 from the vertical shall have no harmful effect.

4 - Splashing water Water splashing against the enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effect.

5 - Water jets Water projected by a nozzle against enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effects.

6 - Powerful water jets Water projected in powerful jets against the enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effects.

7 - Immersion up to 1 meter. Ingress of water in harmful quantity shall not be possible when the enclosure is immersed in water under defined conditions of pressure and time (up to 1 m of submersion).
 
8 - Immersion beyond 1 meter. The equipment is suitable for continuous immersion in water under conditions which shall be specified by the manufacturer.
 NOTE: Normally, this will mean that the equipment is hermetically sealed. However, with certain types of equipment, it can mean that water can enter but only in such a manner that produces no harmful effects.
