Panel PC of the PROFI MT series with capacitive multi-touch

Smartphones with multi-touch have become indispensable since 2007!
We all are conditioned to use intuitive multi-touch screens. A quick zoom into content with two fingers or a scroll through a page as a swiping gesture. Many other useful functions may remain unused. This is due to the fact that the diverse possibilities of this technology are linked to the application and its functional support. In recent years, industrial applications have also discovered the benefits of multitouch. Thanks to the high level of acceptance among smartphone users, the usual operation can also be used for zooming, for example, in product drawings. However, there are no limits to further application possibilities - what is still missing is an industrial panel PC with multitouch.


The panel PC PROFI MT (multitouch) is particularly suitable for use in production and process automation. This series is the answer to the question of how new innovative programs can be used on panel PCs in a harsh industrial environment. The need for information arises precisely where it is dusty and oily due to production.

These properties are also set as a general requirement for a panel PC. Due to the multitouch technology, there is now also the opportunity to establish more interaction with the employee than before in the process-related production environment. Visualization on the one hand made possible by the LCD sizes up to 24". Combined with the possibility of using gesture control if the operating system supports it with the application.

Thanks to the compact design of the panel OC, the PROFI MT can also be used in hard-to-reach places. For example, as a supplement to existing machine controls, because there is no need to set up a PC workstation with a monitor, mouse and keyboard, as the slim panel PCs combine everything in one.

Industrial Panel PC - LCD sizes

With different display sizes up to 24 ", the Panel PC series PROFI MT offers a wide variety of variants to visualize your application in the optimal resolution. The 16: 9 formats with full HD resolution are particularly worth mentioning here, as the trend towards ever larger ones Thanks to the 16: 9 format, the information is displayed on the panel PC in the same way as it is in the office area - this eliminates the need for time-consuming redesigning of the views and the application can be adopted in the production area with little effort.

However, if you want to rearrange the views for the Panel PC, more information can be accommodated compared to the 4: 3 format. Control elements (such as a number pad) can also be anchored in the areas that have become free.

RFID reader integrated in the front of the panel PC

Would you like access authorization on the Panel PC via ID card or chip?
FORSIS offers you another optional and security-relevant possibility to equip the PROFI MT with an RFID - NFC card reader. The glass front extends continuously over the entire front of the device. Thus the contactless RFID reader is integrated in the front.

We support the LEGIC © (advant), mifare © (DESFire) and hitag © reading processes in our panel PCs. The RFID readers are programmed according to customer specifications. You are welcome to send us a test card so that we can ensure that the built-in reader on your BDE terminal is ready for use immediately upon commissioning.

CPU variants

The Panel PCs of the PROFI MT series can be equipped with different CPUs. Whether inexpensive Intel i-Celeron CPUs or high-performance Intel i7 CPUs, the Panel PCs from FORSIS are offered in different versions depending on the requirements.

Attachment points

Panel PC Multitouch Interface Min

For easy attachment of the Panel PC, we offer a stand or wall bracket with tilt adjustment. On the back of the housing are threaded stud bolts with M5 that meet the VESA 100 standard and thus offer a wide range of installation options from table mounting to swivel technology. We would be happy to advise you on the selection of a suitable solution for installing your Panel PC - our large product range offers a suitable solution for even the most difficult task.

The ATX button on the side of the Panel PC for switching on and off ensures convenient commissioning regardless of the fastening option selected. Using the ATX button, you can also assign other actions under the system settings of the operating system, such as "Change user".

Cable strain relief and access protection

Panel PC Multitouch Interface Protection Min

All cable connections of the Panel PC are on the back and go downwards. To relieve strain on the cables, four to six screw terminals are attached to a carrier, so that the cables are bundled and the interface connector is relieved.

To protect the plug connection, the entire connection side can optionally be closed by a protective hood, a so-called access protection. The cover is secured by two stud bolts and two knurled screws. Several versions of the cable outlet are available, such as a version using RITTAL pinch technology or classic PG screw connections.

PCAP technology

Panel PC Multitouch Control Min

The Multitouch front enhances the appearance of the Panel PC Multitouch and the front view is similar to conventional tablet PCs. Thanks to the glass front, text and images appear livelier and richer in contrast, because in comparison to the analog resistive touchscreen, there is no longer any film in front of it. The built-in touch technology is installed flush in the housing, without any corners or edges, and gives the Panel PC a timeless elegance. Nevertheless, the glass front of the Panel PC Multitouch with a highly secure protective glass with a thickness of up to 2 mm is robust and more resistant to dust particles or sparks flying around. Last but not least, the capacitive technology enables operation with up to 10 fingers.

An important criterion in the industrial sector for the use of a capacitive touchscreen in the Panel PC is operation with safety gloves. A lot has happened in terms of technology in this area in recent years.
With each generation of multi-touch screens, the firmware of the touch controller has been further developed so that operation with safety gloves can now be guaranteed.

Are you curious whether this also works with your gloves? We would be happy to provide you with a test device, just talk to us about it.

A reliable Intel Celeron from the Skylake processor family (6G) works under the hood of the PROFI MT. This processor type is suitable for the current Windows 10 operating system. The price-performance ratio is excellent and completely sufficient for most client-server applications or web applications. If you need more performance for your Panel PC, we can of course supply you with an Intel i3 or the fast Intel i7.

A standard 4 GB module is provided as the main memory, which can be upgraded to 8 GB or 16 Gb. A 128 GB SSD is available for local data - you can obtain additional capacities from us on request.

The power supply unit is protected in the housing - so the Panel PC remains free of add-on parts, which significantly simplifies installation, because now all you have to do is plug it in and off you go!

All components selected by us are designed for continuous operation 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It should be noted that the housing, CPU variants, interfaces, accessories and mounting options are identical for the PROFI and PROFI MT series. The only distinguishing feature of the two Panel PC series is the touch panel technology.

One of the most important distinguishing features to many other Panel PCs available on the market is that FORSIS relies on long-term availability. All selected components will be available for many years. Depending on when a new generation of devices is started, we can supply the same or compatible spare parts for up to five years. This is sustainable and creates investment security, as is often desired by many companies, which is not only important in the case of service and after the warranty period.

Imagine you get a couple of new Panel PCs and months later you reorder some of the same series. The Panel PCs you have preconfigured could no longer be taken over one-to-one due to changed hardware technology. Many settings would have to be readjusted, which would mean effort and costs - and all because the manufacturer does not guarantee long-term availability.

Save yourself annoying touch-ups and eradicate the risks right from the start. Instead, rely on the professional Panel PC solution from FORSIS right from the start.
