The Highest Protective IP69K Panel PC for Food/Beverage Manufacturing Industry

Taipei, Taiwan. – April 21, 2017 – APLEX Technology Inc., a global industrial computer product solutions provider, recently has unveiled SUS304/316 stainless steel ViTAM series including panel PC and display. Both Panel PC and display significantly feature the fully IP66/69K rated protection of the whole machine with M12 locking connectors. 
In the increasingly fast-growing food and beverage manufacturing industry, there is a key challenge to automate the production process, reducing the cost, yet maintaining the uncompromising quality, health, and safety. APLEX’s solutions bring the comprehensively transparent process, from raw ingredients to the commodities, in order to ensure the visibility and traceability. Therefore, ViTAM series is best-in-class as it enables the manufacturers to execute the real-time controlling, decreasing human errors, managing cost and inventory, maintaining the sanitary certifications and environment conditions such as temperature and humidity system. On the basis of food and beverage industry, ViTAM series is designed to strictly adhere to the food/beverage hygienic standard in the following features.

Whole machine stainless steel designed
Sanitation is a serious issue of food/beverage industry so it is necessary to do the intensive cleaning to maintain the hygienic environment. Therefore, stainless steel is the first option in food and beverage manufacturing industry due to its cleanability, high corrosion resistance. Stainless steel is 
germ-resistant which can prevent the food/beverage from bacterial poisoning and will not damage people’s health. APLEX is capable of upgrading the stainless steel grade from SUS304 to SUS316, the SUS316 stainless steel consists of molybdenum so it can enhance corrosion resistance, especially against chlorides and industrial solvents.
IP69K the highest protection grade with M12 connectors 
IP69K rating is the protection against the ingress of dust, closer-range high-pressure jets of water, and high temperature sprays down. As the result of sanitation and hygiene in food/beverage manufacturing factory is paramount, so ViTAM series is equipped with IP69K which withstand regular high temperature wash down to disinfect the equipment and environment. Additionally, M12 connectors prevent the entry of water through the connectors during the spraying down.

Wide temperature range (-20°C~60°C)
According to the food/beverage manufacturing includes different types. All ingredients and commodities are necessary to standardize the temperature to ensure and control the quality. ViTAM series provides wide operating temperature from -20°C to 60°C which features to withstand the food in need of frozen and high temperature processes. For example, must keep frozen food at below -18°C, refrigerated food at below 7°C and cooked food at above 60°C for preventing germ from growing.  
All of the above features are extremely important in food/beverage processing in order to keep the safety from food contamination and reduce the waste. APLEX ViTAM series encompasses four series: ViTAM-1XX (display), ViTAM-6XX (ARM based), ViTAM-8XX (Intel Baytrail) and ViTAM-9XX/9XXA (Intel Harswell and Skylake).
