Fully-Sealed Monitors and Panel Computers – ToughStation Series

Fully-Sealed Monitors and Panel Computers built for Demanding Industrial Operations

VarTech’s fully-sealed ToughStation Series of rugged monitors and panel computers are built for HMI functionality in demanding industrial operations.

Our fully-sealed rugged monitors and panel computers are used for HMI functionality and visualization in washdown or clean-in-place environments with strict sanitation regulations requiring regular cleaning of equipment with water or corrosive cleaning agents. These fully-sealed monitors and panel computers are 316-Stainless Steel (NEMA 4X/IP66) or black powder-coat aluminum (NEMA 4/IP65) enclosures.

The gasket-sealed, fanless design allows for use in a variety of environments where a fully-sealed monitor or panel computer is needed as part of a rugged HMI solution. Industries and applications where VarTech’s ToughStations are currently being used include: smart factories (IIOT), medical and pharmaceutical clean room applications, food and beverage processing, mining & tunnel operations, oil & natural gas drilling platforms, outdoor information kiosk, and more.
