July 22, 2016 OpenSystems Media

ADLink Technology is making a serious push into the medical domain with the release of its MLC 5 Series medical panel computer. Designed around a fifth-generation Intel Core i7 processor, the computers deliver the performance needed to enable easy management and integration of information from PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System), EHR (Electronic Health Records) and other clinical data systems.

The MLC 5 Series includes the standard version MLC 5-21/23 and high-end version MLC 5-21/23 HE. The latter offers nine illuminated function keys and a dimmable reading light for keyboard illumination; these features allow physicians to conveniently use computing solutions in any area of their facility to enhance the workflow in hospital environments.

The MLC 5 Series offers either a 21.5- or 23.8-in. full high-definition capacitive touchscreen with anti-glare coating and optical bonding for enhanced viewing capability. Multi-touch gesture control is supported, even when wearing protective gloves. The sealed aluminum housing protects against dust and liquid intrusion for critical patient monitoring in almost any hospital environment, and can be cleaned with all commonly used disinfectants and cleaning agents. The medical panel computer’s IP65-rated, gap-free, flat surface housing and fanless design prevents accumulation of microbes to maintain the hygienic conditions necessary in medical environments.

Wireless connectivity with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are supported. The panel computer provides two ultra HD (3840 by 2160 pixels) display ports as standard equipment to support external monitors as required by modern healthcare applications. And galvanic isolated COM and LAN ports allow connection to other medical devices. The electromagnetic emission shielding is designed according to all relevant standards, minimizing interference with other equipment, and is in full accordance with IEC/EN-60601-1 and IEC/EN-60601-1-2.
