[Video] Types of Advantech Industrial Computers
This video provides a brief overview into the world of industrial computers for engineers, managers, and supervisors of industrial operations. Discover the different types of industrial computers and various mounting options available, prior to making a purchase.
Industrial vs. Consumer-Grade PCs
The question of whether to purchase an industrial PC or a consumer-grade PC boils down to the question of price vs. longevity. You know that industrial environments are tough. From dust and water, to temperature fluctuations and more, your PC is bound to be exposed to some harsh conditions that a non-rugged device just can’t hold up to. That’s why Industrial PCs are a smart buy, even if the price point is higher than that of a consumer-grade computer. They’re rugged and extensively engineered to withstand environmental stressors and survive the test of time.
“Consumer PCs turn over every one to two years. Industrial PCs have an operations life of seven to ten years.”
