Breda, The Netherlands, August 20th, 2020 – Advantech, a leading provider of industrial computing solutions, is pleased to announce its POC-624 24” medical-grade point-of-care terminal (POC) designed for diverse healthcare applications. Featuring an 8th gen Intel® Core™ i5/i7-8665UE processor, POC-624 is a high-performance, ultra-thin terminal that enables improved operational efficiency in hospitals, clinics, and care homes. Compliant with IEC 60601 safety standards for medical devices, the POC-624 terminal is user friendly and offers a reduced time-to-market with its compliance with relevant healthcare regulations.
High-Performance Intel® Processor for Mobile POC
Advantech’s POC-624 features an 8th gen Intel® i5/i7-8665UE processor and integrated NVME SSD, which processes data seven times faster than traditional 2.5” SSDs, thereby facilitating real-time data processing and storage. With the inclusion of the Intel® Wireless-AC 2×2 solution, POC-624 transmits data more reliably and 12 times faster compared to traditional BGN 1×1 solutions.
Enhanced Infection Control with IP54 Rated Ingress Protection
The POC-624 features a fanless design and is environmentally sealed in a specially designed plastic enclosure that supports regular sanitization using a variety of disinfectants and sanitizing agents to ensure strict hygiene control. Additionally, the whole system is IP54-rated for protection from water and dust ingress (front panel IP65), further increasing user safety and contagion management.
Medical-Grade Solution for Use in Hospitals, Clinics, and Care Homes
Compliant with the IEC 60601-1 medical safety standard for electrical devices, POC-624 is designed for reliable operation in a wide range of healthcare environments. Furthermore, the system features COM and LAN (1.5KV) ports equipped with isolation protection to guard against electromagnetic interference (EMI) or leakage, ensuring safe integration with existing infrastructure and equipment.
Expandable Design for Flexible Customization
To support diverse applications, the POC-624 POC terminal can be equipped with optional value-added modules, such as an RFID reader or a smart card reader for patient identification and an HD camera and sound bar module for telemedicine applications. The provision of an expansion slot allows add-on cards and customized I/O to be integrated to expand the system functionalities. Finally, with the inclusion of an optional hot-swappable power system, POC-624 can be used to deliver mobile healthcare in a wide range of treatment settings.
