Date: 3/9/2015 12:00:00 AM
Taipei, Taiwan, March 9th - Advantech, a leading provider of certified medical computing systems and services, today unveiled the POC-W212, a new generation medical-grade computer. This system was specifically designed for critical healthcare environments such as operating rooms (ORs), intensive care units, and emergency departments.
 
No Expense Spared for Safety
Designed from the ground up for enhanced safety and reliability, the fanless POC-W212 computer is UL60601-1/EN60601-1 certified and features an IP65-rated front panel and IP54-rated system enclosure. Additionally, the POC-W212 is equipped with medical-grade equipotential bonding to prevent hazards from current leakages and isolated serial/LAN ports to protect the equipment from electrical shock.
 
Increased Performance and Reduced Power Consumption
The POC-W212 can be fitted with either an Intel® Core i7 4650U (1.7G) or i5 4300U (1.9G) processor, both of which boost computing performance by up to 50% while reducing energy consumption by 60% compared to the previous model POC-W211. The Intel® HD Graphics 3000 card has also been replaced with an Intel® HD Graphics 5000 card for enhanced graphics performance. Finally, the device is equipped with Advantech’s POC Link Remote Management tool that features the Intel® Active Management Technology (AMT) to enable advanced remote-OS control.
 
Customizable OR Assistance Platforms
The POC-W212 offers flexible customization options that can be easily configured by technicians. These options include a DICOM preset, exterior PCIe (x4) slot, Mini PCIe (two slots), Wi-Fi modules, smart card reader, battery pack, RFID reader, DVD drive, and Bluetooth 4.0 module. Advantech’s Digital Healthcare team also offers many optional value-added features including customized BIOS support, embedded OS, one-key driver installation, a RAID-enabled hard disk, AMT remote control platform, and SUSIAccess platform to further facilitate and enhance IT operations.
 
P-Cap Touchscreen for Crystal Clear Imaging
The POC-W212 can be equipped with three different screen types according to customer requirements. The three screen options 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 also features a glass layer of 7H hardness that minimizes light refraction and satisfies the demands of extreme environments. Furthermore, the 90% light transmittance level, extra sensitive glove-friendly touch operation, and smooth slide control make POC-W212 the ideal medical computing platform for ORs.
