National Instruments Aust & NZ  introduces a new line of industrial touch panel computers based on the 1.33 GHz Intel Atom processor.  

Designed for engineers to program human machine interfaces (HMIs) with NI LabVIEW for flexible, simplified application deployment, the touch panel computers feature an extended operating temperature range for use in industrial environments.  

Using the Intel Atom processors, engineers can build high-performance HMIs with a low-power, fanless device.  

Key features of the NI TPC-2206 and TPC-2212 touch panel computers:  

  • -20ºC to 60ºC operating temperature range for harsh industrial applications
  • 4 GB solid state drives for reliable operation in extended vibration environments
  • Windows Embedded OS for long-term deployment and support
  • 1 GB RAM and two gigabit Ethernet ports
  • LED backlight technology to maintain screen brightness across the range of temperatures  
  • Intel Atom processors facilitate extended temperature range operation and improved application performance
  • Suitable for monitoring and control applications
  • Work with a variety of hardware including NI CompactRIO, PXI, NI Smart Cameras, NI Embedded Vision Systems and other third-party industrial devices
  • Engineers can develop advanced and intuitive HMI applications with the LabVIEW graphical development environment 
  • LabVIEW provides easy network deployment, pre-built template applications and navigation controls for building complex multi-screen interfaces
  • Offers engineers programmatic control of advanced OS features such as Enhanced Write Filters and Hibernate Once/Resume Many (HORM)

Eric Starkloff, NI Vice President of Marketing for Test and Embedded says that the touch panels combined with NI LabVIEW software provide a rugged high-performance interface for monitoring and control applications.  

According to Staci Palmer, Senior Director of Marketing for the Intel Low Power Embedded Processor Division, the new Intel Atom processors bring more intelligence than ever before to embedded connected devices such as touch panel HMI computers.  

She adds that devices integrating smart, connected services to monitor, sense, serve and control applications intelligently and interactively help the world operate more efficiently.
