Advantech Launches POC Series of Medical-Grade Point-of-Care Terminals for High-Resolution Imaging
Taipei, Taiwan, July 20, 2017 – Advantech, a leading provider of a wide range of certified medical computing systems, is pleased to announce its POC series of medical-grade point-of-care terminals comprising two models differentiated according to display size – POC-W213/WP213 (21.5”), and POC-W243/WP243 (23.8”).
Powered by the latest 6th Gen Intel® Core™ i processor that delivers up to a 30% increase in graphics performance, POC series terminals are high-performance medical-grade devices with the capability to support multiple displays for complex imaging-related healthcare applications, such as surgical modeling, radiology, and endoscopy. The lightweight and slim system design enables POC terminals to be flexibly mounted in diverse locations to serve as operating room (OR) dashboards, equipment control panels, and intensive care unit (ICU) information displays, providing critical data to medical staff to assist with life-saving decision making. To support the high-resolution imaging requirements of critical care applications, POC terminal displays are equipped with in-plane switching (IPS) technology to provide superior color presentation, increased responsiveness, and, most importantly, a wider viewing angle without image distortion. The inclusion of optional DICOM presets creates a display compensation curve that makes it easier for the human eye to perceive different brightness levels, resulting in images that appear sharper and more detailed.
Designed to meet strict safety and reliability regulations, POC terminals are compliant with UL60601-1, IEC 60601-1/60601-2, and EN 60601-1 certifications and feature medical-grade equipotential bonding and isolated COM/LAN ports to reduce the risk of current leakages and electric shock. Furthermore, all terminal units are 1P54 rated for protection against water and dust ingress and easy cleaning (with W213/WP213 also equipped with an IP65-rated front panel) to ensure that the highest levels of hygiene and infection control are maintained. In addition to the default system I/O, built-in expansion ports (1 PCIe x4 and 2 mini PCIe) allow POC terminals to be integrated with diverse peripherals, such as a 5 megapixel camera, smart card reader, and RFID/ Wi-Fi/Bluetooth modules, to expand the system functionalities according to specific application requirements. Moreover, the terminals are installed with Intel® Active Management Technology (AMT) to enable remote management and reduce maintenance costs.
Considering their premium imaging capabilities, excellent computing performance, convenient operation, and flexible expansion, Advantech’s POC series terminals provide the ideal medical computing platforms for diverse imaging-related healthcare applications. Furthermore, the POC-WP models (POC-WP213/WP243) are equipped with an internal power supply unit to reduce cables and facilitate mounting installation for greater usability in critical care environments.
