Winmate Flat Stainless Panel PC in Pharmaceutical Production

In the pharmaceutical industries, hygiene is of the utmost importance, from material processing, to filling & packaging goods, all environments in the production facility have to be spotless and contamination free. The whole production facility has to be thoroughly cleaned every day, with extensive wash downs with cleaning agents and high pressure, high temperature sprays to ensure disinfection of the drug processing areas. As a large-scale drug manufacturer was reconfiguring their production line, they were looking for stainless steel Panel PCs to use as machine line controllers to produce their packaged drug products. These computers had to be able to handle the hazards in the hazardous processing environments where dust, dirt and liquids have to be cleaned off all machines in the facility daily to prevent contamination.

Core Product Selected

W22IK3S-SPA369 IP69K Flat Stainless P-CAP Panel PC

Main Challenges

  • Corrosion Resistant SUS 316/ AISI 316 Stainless Steel Housing with IP69K Water, Dust Protection

    The solution has to be easily cleaned and disinfected daily, meaning it needs to be corrosion, waterproof and dustproof to withstand close-range high-pressure, high temperature wash downs. Additional cabling protection is necessary for ensuring the connectors and cables to remain waterproof.

  • Multi-touch projected capacitive touch

    The operator interface requires P-Cap technology to deliver excellent responsive performance, even in extreme environments, to allow for production worker to operate it easily with fingers.
