There is a wide variety of options. In the past Panel PC’s were a requirement as they provided the option to install an internal PCI-card based camera adapter. Having moved to USB3 based camera adapters the choices have multiplied.
Configurations may be based on a lightweight tablet, a high-end laptop or a 24″panelPC on a trolley.
The hospital solution
This solution is based on a panelPC with 24″ touchscreen. This requires a medical grade trolley (stable enough to carry 12 Kgf). We recommend the use of a separate keyboard and mouse, although this is not really required due to the touch screen.
Camera device controller
- Based on Medical grade Panel PC
- Four core processor
- Fanless system
- 24 ” touch screen
- 256 GB SSD or 1 TB HD
- Windows 10 Pro, 64 bit
- Camera adapter
- External based on USB3
- Internal based on PCI card
- Dedicated microprocessor for camera control
- High speed data transfer between camera and controller
The mobile solution
This solution is based on the use of the Camera Adapter Model 2 which is based on a USB3 connection to the Device Controller.
The Device Controller may be any PC with a “state of the art” USB3 port with sufficient supply of power. The experience shows that this is not always the case. Each type of notebook or tablet should be tested!
