IEI (ICP Electronics Inc), distributed in Australia by ICP Electronics Australia has announced the release of the AFL-F08A; an 8" panel PC featuring a completely flat front panel and advanced multi-touch capabilities.
The AFL-F08A is a fanless system with an Intel Atom processor and features a decorative film overlay mounted on the touch panel to achieve a completely flat surface. The AFL-F08A includes all necessary input/output interfaces to control most subsystems or automation applications.
The AFL-F08A's flat-bezel design covers the entire front frame of the system to make the screen and bezel appear to blend together. This seamless flat-bezel touch screen system offers the advantage of an easy to clean surface.
The front panel is IP64 compliant and the touch-screen is comprised of 7H durable glass for maximum resistance to scratches. The 7H rated anti-scratch surface is stronger than a conventional touch panel and is able to better protect the screen from damage. Additionally, a special anti-reflection and anti-glare coating reduces reflection and increases transmission of light to produce a better image.
The AFL-F08A has built-in 802.11 b/g wireless LAN, integrated Bluetooth 2.0 module and built-in 300K pixel CMOS camera with low-light capability.
The AFL-08A's attractive appearance and exceptional durability makes it suitable for applications such as digital signage, home/office automation or in public buildings such as museums or kiosks.
