Date: 10/15/2015 12:00:00 AM

Taipei, Taiwan, October 15, 2015 —Advantech, a leading provider of certified medical computing systems and services, today launched its POC-W152 15” widescreen edge-to-edge medical computer. This is Advantech’s first 15” widescreen medical computer aimed at critical care environments. The compact lightweight design makes the system ideal for wall-mounted and mobile cart applications.

Strict Compliance with Safety Regulations

Like all Advantech products, POC-W152 is designed to meet strict safety and reliability regulations. In addition to UL60601-1/EN60601-1 certifications and an IP65-rated front panel enclosure (the entire device is IP43-rated), the system features medical-grade equipotential bonding, to prevent current leakage hazards, as well as isolated serial/LAN ports, to reduce the risk of electric shock. 

Superior Compatibility for Enhanced Performance

POC-W152 can be equipped with various processors, including Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3and Celeron® J1900 processors, according to different application needs. When powered by the latest Intel® Core™ processor, the system’s computing performance increases by 50% and power consumption declines by 60%. The addition of Advantech’s POC Link Remote Management tool featuring Intel® Active Management Technology (AMT) enables advanced remote OS control.

Flexible Customization and Easy Configuration

POC-W152 supports a range of optional accessories, including a smart card reader, RFID reader, Bluetooth 4.0, touch panel, wireless LAN card, and battery module. Compared to other 15” medical-grade computers, Advantech’s POC-W152 provides greater customization flexibility with the inclusion of two mini PCIe, one PCIe (x4), one HDMI, and two USB 3.0 ports for easy configuration. Advantech’s Digital Healthcare team also offers many optional value-added features such as customized BIOS support, embedded OS, single-key driver installation, a RAID-enabled hard disk, an AMT remote control platform, and a SUSIAccess platform to further facilitate and enhance IT operations.


Diverse Screen Options for Crystal-Clear Images
For POC-W152, customers can choose between three screen types according to their application requirements. The three types offered are an AR-type non-touchscreen, AR-type P-Cap two-point touchscreen, and resistive-type touchscreen (clear and AG). The P-Cap touchscreen features a glass layer of 7H hardness that minimizes light refraction and complies with equipment specifications for extreme environments. The flexibility of three screen options combined with the system’s 90% light transmittance level, extra-sensitive glove-friendly touch operation, and smooth slide control features make POC-W152 the ideal medical computing platform for operating rooms and intensive care units.
