Product Portfolio
  • noax Industrial Computers – Quality made in Germany

  • noax Technologies developed and manufactures industrial Touch Panel PCs for challenging environments. The specific features are the completely sealed enclosure and the high performance. noax PCs are full blown computers which are developed specifically for the requirements of industry. noax industrial computers combine industrial requirements with state of the art computer technology. This allows them to be upgraded at any time and to be compatible with all standard hardware and software systems. It is extremely easy to integrate noax PCs into an existing IT system.
    • IPCs – completely sealed and watertight up to NEMA 6 (IP67)

    • Because of the highly efficient noax proprietary PC electronic it was possible to develop a completely sealed enclosure with no external fan. The power dissipation is accomplished through the especially developed enclosure with cooling fins. Therefore the internal electronic is protected from dirt, dust or humidity. In addition all internal parts are protected against shock and vibration.
    • The well designed noax industrial computer technology

    • Even with their small and compact size the noax industrial PCs have high performance and a wide range of upgradeability. The proprietary noax PC motherboard is the main part in every noax computer. They are all assembled with Intel processors and most common interfaces such as serial I/Os, USBs and Ethernet. In addition, two PCI slot are available for additional special interfaces. This allows a simple connection of external peripheral devices.
    • The noax internal micro controller – another safety feature

    • All noax industrial computers are equipped with an onboard micro controller. This device monitors most internal functions of the computer and gives the operator the ability to set certain parameters of the IPC. Through a very userfriendly Windows program the operator is able to verify all these functions on the screen or via a network on the server. In critical operational status this micro processor sends a warning and acts with a shutdown if no action is taken by the operator. This ability drastically increase theoperations safety of the system.
