This is a Control Engineering 2014 Engineers’ Choice honorable mention.The TPC-2140WP is a 21.5-in widescreen multi-touch panel PC specifically designed to provide easier operation and boost productivity in manufacturing control environments, building automation, and other HMI applications.

This iF award winning device has been honored not only for its appearance but also, its commitment to being extremely intuitive to use. With pale blue soft-keys that, when lightly touched, give users quick and easy access to information allowing for convenient viewing. The TPC-2140WP features a widescreen ratio of 16:9, providing 40% more screen area than 4:3 displays. Furthermore, with the addition of multi-touch capabilities, the TPC-2140WP provides even greater control and viewing of information shown using Advantech's SUSIAccess and WebAccess management software. Several 3rd party partner HMI/SCADA software packages have been tested on this panel with excellent results.

All of this is made possible with the inclusion of an AMD dual-core processor with independent graphical processing unit which provides support for Windows 8 and DirectX11 so it can handle more complicated and detailed graphics.
