Selecting Industrial Panel PC for Food Industry

Safety, Hygiene, and Reliability

In the food and beverage processing industries, hygiene is of the utmost importance, from meat processing, to filling and packaging goods, all environments in the production facility have to be spotless and contamination free.

The whole production facility has to be thoroughly cleaned every day, with extensive wash downs with cleaning agents and high pressure, high temperature sprays to ensure disinfection of the food processing areas.

Stainless Panel PC has to be able to handle the hazards in the food processing environments where dust, dirt and liquids have to be cleaned off all machines in the facility daily to prevent food contamination.

Features:

Anewtech-stainless-panel-pc-Winmate-Industrial-Panel-ComputerCorrosion-resistant stainless steel housing

Industrial Panel PCs and HMI installed in a food processing or chemical factory floor are often wet, dusty, and repeatedly cleaned with aggressive chemicals that can easily cause corrosion. That is why SUS 316 / AISI 316 stainless steel material is the first choice when it comes to product design.

The housing made of resistant to corrosive environments SUS 316/ AISI 316 grade stainless steel.

The IP Code, International Protection Marking, IEC standard 60529, sometimes interpreted as Ingress Protection Marking, classifies and rates the degree of protection provided by mechanical casings and electrical enclosures against intrusion, dust, accidental contact, and water.

Ingress Protection (IP) rating notifies that the unit is water and dust-resistant. For example, the IP65 level indicates that the device's enclosure has no ingress of dust, complete protection against contact (dust-tight), and is protected from water jets.

Broad Industrial Applications:

Anewtech-stainless-panel-pc-ip65-with-button

IP65 Stainless Panel PC with Push Buttons

Push-buttons bring control and indication directly to the work area, eliminating wasted movement and increasing productivity. Also, the physical buttons are especially needed for critical tasks like emergency shutdowns.

When an emergency occurs, we don’t want to waste time navigating through HMI screens but a simple and quick way to shut down the process. In terms of machine integration, push-button devices are easy to install and wire and straightforward for understanding the function and use.

The wiring time is saved by over 60%, and the installation cost is reduced by more than 30%.

Water and Dust Protection

The IP Code, International Protection Marking, IEC 60529 (EN 60529), also known as Ingress Protection (IP) rating, classifies and rates the degree of protection provided by mechanical casings and electrical enclosures against intrusion, dust, accidental contact, and water. The 1st digit indicates the level of protection that the enclosure provides against access to hazardous parts (e.g., electrical conductors, moving parts) and the ingress of solid foreign objects. The second digit indicates the level of protection that the enclosure provides against harmful ingress of water.

However, the highest does not mean the best. The choice depends on your application requirements and the environment where you are going to deploy the HMI solution. Generally speaking, for food and beverages industry there are four possible protection levels: IP69K, the highest, IP67, IP66 and IP65.

Let’s check what each level of protection means.
Anewtech-ip69-industrial-panel-pc-hmi-Winmate-Industrial-Panel-Computer IP69K
The IP69K Panel PC is built to withstand extensive wash downs with corrosion resistance against cleaning agents, especially against close-range high-pressure, high temperature wash downs. The level of protection allows for easy cleaning and sterilization using water with temperatures of up to 80°C and pressure of up to 30 Bar. A custom-built waterproof conduit pipe was also provided for the customer with a cover plate, allowing for an additional layer of protection for the panel pc cables.
Anewtech-ip67-industrial-panel-pc-hmi-Winmate-Industrial-Panel-Computer IP67
The IP67 rating indicating that the device is actually protected even when immersed in as much as 1 meter (3.3 feet) of water. The sealed IP67 design protects the internal components from dust and water.
Anewtech-ip66-industrial-panel-pc-hmi IP66
Complete protection against contact (dust tight) and water projected in powerful jets (12.5 mm nozzle) against the enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effects.
Anewtech-ip65-industrial-panel-pc-Winmate-Industrial-Panel-Computer IP65
IP65 rated as "dust tight" and protected against water projected by a nozzle (6.3 mm) against enclosure from any direction. IP65 rated panel PCs can be sprayed clean and prevent ingredients from making their way into the system and causing damage to components.
