ToughStation: Fully-Sealed HMI Workstations

Rugged Fully-Sealed Panel PC Workstations

Fully-Sealed Monitor and Panel PC Workstations, Available in 3 Designs: Ergonomic Workstation, Recessed Kiosk and Panel Enclosure. 

VarTech’s ruggedly built ToughStation Series of fully-sealed touchscreen flat panel computer workstations have gasket-sealed enclosures and are resistant to moisture, dust, and debris. These hardened LCD PC workstations are well suited for continuous operation in industries with strict sanitation regulations such as food and beverage processing facilities or any application that requires regular washdown of HMI equipment with hose directed water or corrosive cleaning agents.

Enclosures can be constructed of 316-Stainless Steel (NEMA 4X/IP66) or black powder-coat aluminum (NEMA 4/IP65) which both provide a degree of protection (when installed properly) within manufacturing plants, petrochemical refineries, mining operations, oil and natural gas drilling platforms, and other harsh working environments. These industrial grade flat panel workstations are a powerful HMI solution for assisting in a variety of industries including manufacturing and process control systems, transportation and logistics, weight station and truck loading terminals, warehouse inventory and materials management, and heavy use point-of-sale kiosk for drive-thru and outdoor self-order solutions.
