ToughStation Series: Fully-Sealed Monitors & Panel PCs

Fully-Sealed Touchscreen Monitors and Panel PCs Built with NEMA 4/4X (IP65/66) Protection

VarTech’s fully-sealed ToughStation Series of industrial grade monitors and touch panel computers are built for HMI functionality in harsh environments where water and dust are present during daily operation of equipment.

ToughStation’s gasket-sealed design is available with 316-Stainless Steel (NEMA4X/IP66) and black powder-coat aluminum (NEMA 4/IP65) construction for protection in clean-in-place environments or industries with strict sanitation regulations that require regular washdown of equipment with water or corrosive cleaning agents.

ToughStation’s core features and overall industrial grade design allows for use in a variety of environments and industries including: smart factories (IIOT), medical and clean room applications, food and beverage processing, mining tunnel operations, oil and natural gas drilling platforms, or other environments that can damage and disable traditional consumer grade computer products.
