In a number of applications, computer hardware and embedded calculators have to work under harsh environmental conditions. High- and low-temperature environments can be found in a broad range of applications: industrial automation, video surveillance, digital signage, information kiosks, boundary calculations, etc.
On the market today are available quite a few offers of PCs from different manufacturers that are able to withstand the extreme environmental influences. Polywell Computers, true to its principles of reasonable pricing ensuring optimal price/quality ratio, announces the start of supplies to the Russian market of mini-industrial class PCs with extended temperature range, whose price tag is not capable of causing fainting for enterprise purchasers and system integrators.
