Apollo Lake panel PCs offer 7H hard, IP65 touchscreens

Oct 13, 2020 — by Eric Brown 201 views

Vecow has released an “MTC-8000 Series” of IP65-protected industrial panel PCs that run Linux or Win 10 on Apollo Lake with 10.1- to 21.5-inch, 16:9 capacitive touchscreens plus SATA and 2x mini-PCIe.

In June, Vecow announced an MTC-7000 Series of 10.1- to 21.5-inch panel PCs with 8th Gen Whiskey Lake processors. Now it has followed up with a similar MTC-8000 Series based on Intel Apollo Lake with the same screen sizes, IP65 front-panel protection, 7H hardness anti-scratch touch surfaces, and wide 16:9 aspect ratios. The rugged, all-in-one, 10-point projected capacitive touch-panels run Linux, Win 10, and depending on the model, Win 7 or 8, on a quad-core, 1.6GHz Atom x7-E3950.
