Industrial Panel PC from Apollo Technologies features a drop-in design for plug-and play use.

Industrial Panel PC has a Pentium 4 CPU, rugged space-saving enclosure, and drop-in design for plug-and-play use. Unit comes in two standard modules: one with a 12.1-in. SVGA or XGA LCD and the other with a 17-in. SXGA LCD. Both have wide viewing angles, high contrast ratios, and high brightness. Series is fully scalable by removing the U-bracket on the cradle of the enclosure and substituting it with one of the appropriate size. Unit accommodates LCDs from 12.1-in. through 19-in. diagonal. It is capable of full-motion color display and full interface capability. Operating temperature range is 0-50 °C.
