Benefits of the XPPC 16-100 Panel PC
Easy Mounting in Clean, Stainless-Steel Enclosure
Keeping facilities clean is a primary concern for food production. The versatile mounting options mean that the XPPC 16-100 is easy to install and easy to clean, owing to the stainless-steel enclosure, which leaves the touchscreen computer front panel exposed to the elements.
