With the introduction of Industry 4.0 and China Manufacturing 2025, there are more and more demands on industrial automation, digitization and intelligence. Compared with commercial using, the industrial on-site environment is generally more complicated, such as dust, water droplets, oily grease, high temperature and low temperature, direct sunlight, electromagnetic interference, chemical corrosion...etc. This makes the industrial equipments in the industrial field to have a good adaptability and stability to the environment. This is why industrial computers and industrial panel PC are irreplaceable in the industrial sector.
In general, dust and water droplets are the most common in industrial sites, and industrial touch panel PC system for industrial applications can be a challenge. For long-term reliability and stability, industrial panel PC must meet a certain level of industrial protection. Therefore, TAICENN briefly introduced the most common IP65 waterproof and dust-proof protection, what is the meaning of industrial panel PC?
1- What is the industrial level of protection?
The IP protection level is composed of two numbers. The first number indicates the level of dustproofing and prevention of foreign objects entering the appliance. (The foreign objects mentioned here contain tools, and the human fingers are not exposed to the live parts in the appliance. In order to avoid electric shock, the second digit indicates the degree of airtightness of the appliance against moisture and water intrusion. The bigger the number is, the bigger degree of protection it is.
The IP protection rating of industrial panel PC defines the level at which industrial computers can be adapted to industrial field level protection. If the computer protection level is higher than the on-site protection level, then there is no problem; but if the computer's protection level is lower than the on-site protection level, the product will inevitably be affected by the environment, and the accumulated product will have great consequences for product stability. This has a significant impact on the stability and longevity of the product. To this end, when providing customers with industrial panel PC solutions and products, the operator must be able to define the protection level requirements of the industrial site, and then make the correct judgment; To the manufacturer, we must also provide reasonable guidance to the customers, and make the right recommendations to ensure that industrial touch panel PC can operate safely and reliably in industrial sites.
2- what is the difference between the front panel IP65 and full IP65?
The front panel IP65 is the front panel part of the industrial panel PC which can achieve the corresponding level of waterproof and dust-proof effect. The full IP65 means that IP65 waterproof and dust-proof protection should be achieved at any position of the industrial panel PC.
In general, the front panel IP65 is more common for panel mount installation, embedding industrial panel PC into a special industrial cabinets or equipment. The industrial panel PC with reserved openings such as industrial cabinets can meet the IP65 waterproof and dust-proof, which can meet the industrial field protection level of the application.
The full IP65 requirements of a touch panel PC are generally used in special complicated industrial on-site environments, as well as outdoor environments. It is required that the machine must be able to operate normally in the actual environment, and is not subject to the requirements of waterproof and dustproof.
Once again, how does an industrial panel pc do IP65 protection?
IP65 protection of industrial panel PC, whether it is the front IP65 or full IP65, the most fancy is the experience of R & D engineers. An experienced engineering team is basically taken into account when the plan is determined, without having to work alone.
IP65 reflects the development and design of the system structure, and the structural design often complements the sheet metal process. The perfect design of the product must be realized on the basis of the existing technology, otherwise the product will be difficult to produce, and a small detail often determines the success or failure of the product.
The product structure design must be reasonable and appropriate. The interface connector must also be properly selected, and then manufactured by a precise process. In the assembly process, the necessary manual, sealing process and industrial glue are supplemented to complete the IP65 protection.
Finally, what is the significance of IP65 waterproof and dust-proof protection for industrial panel PC? Based on long-year's product development experience and case studies of customized IP65 for industry customers, TAICENN summed up the following aspects:
Products are more suitable for industrial sites
In automation equipment, we often see commercial tablets or commercial monitor using in automation equipment, because of cost reasons. If the industrial on-site environment is simple, the business products can indeed run perfectly. However, for industrial on-sites with higher requirements, commercial products will fail in verify steps. Industrial panel PC can be used more efficiently during long-term use and in extreme environments.
More practical application value
IP65 waterproof and dust-proof protection features make the bigger use of industrial Panel PC, especially the front panel waterproof is very common in industrial applications; the industrial panel PC with IP65 protection level can be perfectly used in outdoor environment and extreme application site also.
For the complicated and extreme industrial field environment, IP65 rated industrial panel PC will has good protection and protection, can run stably in industrial environment for a long time, thereby increasing productivity and creating more value for the enterprise.
The unique IP rated protection of industrial panel PC is one of the important features that distinguish it from commercial computers. IP65 rated industrial panel PC not only can improve the application range of products, but also promote the application value of industrial panel PC system, thereby improving the productivity of enterprises and creating value for the society.
