OnLogic introduced their new Tacton Series of rugged panel PCs and industrial touchscreen displays, designed to empower innovators with the tools they need for advanced automation, industrial control, and data visualization. Tacton was developed from the ground up as a reliable, highly-configurable, secure, and easy to install HMI solution for manufacturing, warehousing, energy management, and transportation applications.

"The Tacton Series gives users the best of both worlds in an all-in-one touchscreen computer," said David Zhu-Grant, Product Management Lead at OnLogic. "We heard from users that they needed a system that was highly configurable, but didn't lock them into paying for features they didn't need. We took that input and designed a solution that can be customized to the unique requirements of a given project, is easy to install, and built to last. We're excited
to see how innovators put Tacton Panel PCs to use empowering next generation edge solutions."

Highly-configurable Rugged Panel PCs & Industrial Displays

The Tacton is a rugged all-in-one Panel PC with integrated AI acceleration capabilities provided by a range of Intel® 12th Gen Alder Lake-N processors. An extensive I/O coastline is augmented by customization capabilities via OnLogic's proprietary ModBay™, which can be used to add additional connectivity to support specific user application requirements.

Engineered for Challenging Environments

To help ensure reliability in a wide range of installation environments, Tacton Series displays are UV and vibration resistant, have a wide input power and wide operating temperature range, and are available with ignition sensing for in-vehicle installations. The projected capacitive screens offer a 7H hardness, multi-touch support, optical bonding, and anti-water technology to prevent unintended inputs during washdown. The modular design of the Tacton Series allows the TC401 and TN101 to be configured with one of 18 high-resolution displays. Screens are available in 3 sizes, regular or high brightness, resistive or projected capacitive touch interface, with IP66 or IP69K water and dust ingress protected front bezels, and can be configured with an optional integrated front facing camera.

Built-in Security Features

To deter unauthorized access, the Tacton TC401 has built-in intrusion detection, which allows users to be notified when the control cabinet in which Tacton is installed is opened. An optional port blocking and cable securing bracket with onboard power supply mounting points helps to protect against access to unused ports and secure cables to reduce the risk of accidental disconnection. Onboard TPM 2.0 hardware security helps protect data by providing secure boot, platform integrity monitoring, and remote attestation capability. The Tacton Series can be installed via standard VESA mount, or panel mounted using OnLogic's patent pending toolless, ruggedized, locking panel mounting clips, which help prevent the clips from unscrewing in vibration-prone installations.
