POC series terminals are high-performance, medical-grade devices with the capability to support multiple displays for complex imaging-related healthcare applications. These include surgical modelling, radiology and endoscopy. The lightweight and slim system design enables them to be flexibly mounted in diverse locations to serve as operating room (OR) dashboards, equipment control panels and intensive care unit (ICU) information displays. This provides critical data to medical staff to assist with decision-making. To support the high-resolution imaging requirements of critical care applications, the terminal displays are equipped with in-plane switching (IPS) technology. This is to provide good colour presentation, increased responsiveness and a wider viewing angle without image distortion. The inclusion of optional DICOM presets creates a display compensation curve that makes it easier for the human eye to perceive different brightness levels, resulting in images that appear sharper and more detailed.

Designed to meet strict safety and reliability regulations, the terminals are compliant with UL60601-1, IEC 60601-1/60601-2 and EN 60601-1 certifications. They feature medical-grade equipotential bonding and isolated COM/LAN ports to reduce the risk of current leakages and electric shock. All terminal units are 1P54 rated for protection against water and dust ingress and easy cleaning (with W213/WP213 also equipped with an IP65-rated front panel) to ensure that high levels of hygiene and infection control are maintained.

Built-in expansion ports (1 PCIe x4 and 2 mini PCIe) allow POC terminals to be integrated with diverse peripherals. This includes a 5 MP camera, smart card reader and RFID/Wi-Fi/Bluetooth modules to expand the system functionalities according to specific application requirements. The terminals are installed with Intel Active Management Technology (AMT) to enable remote management and reduce maintenance costs.

Considering their imaging capabilities, computing performance, convenient operation and flexible expansion, Advantech’s POC series terminals provide the suitable medical computing platforms for diverse imaging-related healthcare applications. In addition, the POC-WP models (POC-WP213/WP243) are equipped with an internal power supply unit to reduce cables and facilitate mounting installation for greater usability in critical care environments.
