Solid-State Flat Panel Computing Solutions

June 7, 2006

Sealevel Systems, Inc. announces the SeaPAC family of flat panel touchscreen computers designed to operate over a wide temperature range without fans or other moving parts. Available with bright, AMTFT LCDs ranging in size from 6.4″ to 17″, SeaPAC systems are perfect for a variety of industrial control, machine interface, and point-of-sale applications where small size and extreme reliability are a must.

Powered by a high-performance, low-power 1GHz Celeron M processor, SeaPACs are equipped with robust standard I/O features including 10/100Base-T Ethernet, two serial ports, and three high-speed USB 2.0 ports. For flexible local and remote I/O expansion, SeaPACs expand using Sealevel’s SeaI/O data acquisition modules. Choose from Reed and Form C relays, optically isolated inputs, TTL, A/D, and D/A options. The SeaPAC’s processor subsystem communicates with SeaI/O devices using Modbus RTU allowing one or more SeaI/O modules to be physically attached to the SeaPAC or located remotely up to 4000 feet away. Both the processor and I/O modules can be easily removed from the display assembly, making field upgrades easy.

SeaPAC systems include a rugged panel-mount bezel that provides Nema 4/IP65 protection from sprayed liquids on the front surface. The optional resistive touchscreen allows intuitive operator interface and offers years of durable service. SeaPACs are powered by 12VDC, and power is provided to SeaI/O expansion modules using convenient pass-through connectors. The system is rated for 0°C to 50°C operation, and a VESA mounting bracket is available for attaching the system to a mounting arm.

Windows XP Embedded is a perfect operating system choice for SeaPAC systems. Sealevel offers application assistance for efficiently transferring customer applications to the XPe platform. For users that require disk storage, an optional high-temperature hard drive is available.
