FlatClient HYG – Designed for high hygiene standards following EHEDG guidelines | Kontron

  • Designed for high hygiene standards following EHEDG guidelines
  • Stainless steel housing with IP69K protection (support arm version)
  • Suited for washdown applications (e.g. high-pressure cleaning)
  • Scalable performance from Intel Atom® to Intel® Core™ i5
  • Smooth, seamless display surface for perfect cleanability
  • Water drop rejection, palm rejection

Designed according to EHEDG guidelines (European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group), the FlatClient HYG features a maximum protection class with IP69K. These specifications qualify the new FlatClient HYG for use in sensitive hygienic scenarios, in the food and pharmaceutical industry as well as in clean rooms of semiconductor manufacturing plants, in optics and laser technology, life sciences and nanotechnology. The robust basic design enables operation next to dirt-generating manufacturing machines.

The FlatClient HYG with stainless steel front and support arm is IP69K protected. A cost-optimized system variant with VESA 100 offers IP68 protection and enables power cabling via M12 connectors or cable glands. All versions have a smooth, seamless display surface for perfect cleanability. Its IP69K protection makes the new Panel PC also suited for washdown applications like high-pressure cleaning.

The PCAP touch display clearly distinguishes legitimate control inputs, even with gloves, from errors like the impact of water drops (water drop rejection) or the accidental touching of the display with the entire palm of the hand (palm rejection). The FlatClient HYG was designed and built in Germany; extensive inhouse support is ensured. Like all Kontron HMIs, the Panel PC is available on request as a white label version with the customer’s logo and branding.
