Ruggedized Design 

ARC stands for Advanced Ruggedized Computer. The design features include:
ARC-1209 Atom Panel Mount Solution

  • Support for industrial operation environments of temperature between -30~+60°C
  • Wide range voltage input between +12~+26V
  • Anti-vibration (continuous vibrations) of up to 5Grms
  • Anti-shock of up to 20Grms tests

Panel Mount Option

For OEMs such as the Kiosks, equipment manufacturers, HMI, and digital vending machine designers, the ARC-1209 Panel PC is capable for Panel Mount conversion in order to fit into the custom enclosures. ARC-1209 Panel Mount Kit enables cost-savings and easy installation for mounting the Panel PC unit directly into the OEM’s own enclosures. Examples of applications using this mounting method include wall-mount interactive kiosks, digital vending machines, HMI and factory machines with touch screen, and surface mount control consoles.


The combined features of the Intel Atom E3845 Quad-Core performance and rich hardware expansion capabilities make the ARC-1209 all-in-one Panel PC an ideal solution for efficient imaging workflows, digital signage with secure content delivery, visually appealing interactive clients (interactive kiosks, intelligent vending, ATM and point-of-sale (POS) terminals), portable medical devices, industrial control systems, and in-vehicle/forklift information systems, as well as industrial automation, and human machine interface (HMI) applications.
