Computing is essential in the manufacturing and industry as well as in the office sector. In addition to the many automated manufacturing processes that need to be controlled by Industrial Computers, many applications such as inventory control and shipping are now much more efficient with the help of processors. However, industrial and manufacturing needs are very different from those required for office PCs.
Most office hardware works optimally. It is fully air-conditioned, free of dust and water, and free from the risk of being hit or hit by heavy equipment. Unfortunately, manufacturing and industry requirements are quite different.
Many industrial environments are dusty, dirty and dirty. In many cases, the temperature can exceed the recommended values for most computer equipment (especially if the industrial environment contains a furnace or freezer that can explain the extreme operating conditions), forklift trucks and pallet trucks. Is in and out of the aisle.
Therefore, the requirements for industrial PCs are very different from those for office computers. The needs of industrial computers also vary dramatically from industry to industry. Computers used in food manufacturing are made of stainless steel or other easy-to-clean materials, while being waterproof and essentially to prevent explosions in a potentially explosive dusty atmosphere. Must be sealed. Still, heavy industry computers may need to be protected from dust and dirt, but they can withstand excessive temperatures, shocks and vibrations.
The demand for computing in the industry is high. Industrial machines have to deal with many hostile factors while providing reliable computing. Traditionally, industrial computers have been certain custom-made machines. These industrial computers tend to run older hardware and versions of software. While this has the advantage of making the machine stable and reliable, outdated technology can mean that the processes controlled by the machine are not very efficient. These machines are also very expensive and will eventually be deprecated in hardware and software and will need to be replaced on a regular basis.
A better solution to the diverse and extreme demands of computing in the industry is to use only traditional PCs, but they are housed in industrial PC enclosures. It has all the advantages of a traditional industrial computer, including the flexibility of a regular PC, but withstands dirt, dirt, dust, gas, knocks, bangs, heat and cold. Allows you to select, repair, replace, or upgrade your machine instead of waiting for an engineer. These enclosures can also be reused and will last longer than industrial PCs that eventually fail (as do all PCs). However, the enclosure can be reused after the original computer has expired.
Due to the diverse and extreme demands of industrial computing, industrial PC enclosures offer the same protection and reliability at a fraction of the cost, while providing flexibility that even traditional industrial computers cannot meet. To do. PC enclosures are also ideal for the harshest industrial environments and always require a specialized PC for certain tasks, but most industrial computer applications use traditional PCs housed in the enclosure. Can be realized.
