Touchscreen panel PC can work up to 149 degrees

Jan 21, 2011 — by LinuxDevices Staff — from the LinuxDevices Archive — 4 views

Axiomtek announced two 12.1-inch panel PCs with a resistive touchscreen and a choice of Intel Atom processors. The GOT-3126TL-830 and GOT-3126T-823 have a resolution of 800 x 600 pixels, a 2.5-inch SATA drive bay, multiple serial ports, plus CompactFlash and PCI Express Mini Card slots, the company says.

Axiomtek's new 12.1-inch devices add to the company's existing fleet of "GOT" panel PCs, and come with a choice of processors: either the 1.6GHz Atom N270, or the 1.1GHz Atom Z510PT. While neither is one of Intel's latest, the CPUs provide for fanless operation, and the Z510PT allows an operating range of -4 to 149 deg. F (-20 to 65 deg. C), according to the company.

Axiomtek's GOT-3126TL-830 and GOT-3126T-823 share the above case and display size

For the record, Axiomtek designates the N270-equipped model of this panel PC as the GOT-3126TL-830, and calls the Z510PT-equipped version the GOT-3126T-823. The former employs the 945GSE northbridge and ICH7M southbridge, while the latter uses the SCH US15WPT I/O controller, the company adds.

Both models are equipped with a 12.1-inch screen that has resistive touch and a resolution of 800 x 600 pixels. The version on the GOT-3126T-823 has a 500-nit brightness rating, whereas the one on the GOT-3126TL-830 has (for some unexplained reason) a slightly lower 450-nit rating.

According to Axiomtek, the devices are expandable up to 2GB of RAM via a single DIMM slot, and each has a 2.5-inch bay for an SATA-based hard disk drive or solid state disk. Also included are CompactFlash and Mini PCI Express slots, the company says.

Axiomtek says the GOT-3126T-823 and GOT-3126TL-830 may be mounted on walls, via VESA-compatible hardware, on an optional desktop stand, or within a panel cut-out. Interfaces are on the devices' lower edge, and include two RS232 ports and one RS232/422/485 port, four USB 2.0 ports, a gigabit Ethernet port, and a VGA output, according to the company.

Beyond that, the GOT-3126T-823 and GOT-3126TL-830 again differ slightly. The former has a PS/2 keyboard/mouse port, while the latter has an additional RS232 port, according to Axiomtek.

Axiomtek specifies only compatibility with Windows XP, Windows XP Embedded, and Windows CE. However, based on the chipsets employed here (plus Axiomtek's claims of Linux compatibility on previous panel PCs), we believe installing an open source OS should be easily accomplished.
