 Industrial Workstation with 10.4" TFT Display
Ordering Information


Introduction Return to top of page

Performance, versatility and value. You can be sure that the AWS-842 Industrial Workstation lives up to these standards. The heavy-duty steel case conforms to NEMA 4 or IP65, and the front panel protects the system against corrosive substances, moisture and dust. In addition, this workstations ability to withstand shock, vibration and high temperatures make it excellent for applications involving harsh industrial environments.

You can enter different types of data with the AWS-842TP's two convenient sealed membrane keypads: one with 60 data keys and the other with 10 function keys/10 programmable macro keys. A built-in keyboard interface module merges both keyboard and keypad signals into a single output signal that acts like a standard IBM AT keyboard. An external keyboard can be attached through a connector on the front panel.

All of the workstation's controls are located on the front of the unit for easy access. A lockable door protects the Power On LED and HDD indicator LED, as well as the power ON/OFF switch, 5-pin external keyboard connector, resent switches and one 3.5" floppy disk drive.
