So why is a medical Panel PC different from a traditional industrial unit. Well at a functional level they’re very similar but their environmental requirements are very different. In a hospital environment all items should be able to be wiped down for cleaning. Case material should be made from anti-bacterial plastics and there should be no joints or recesses in which bacteria can hide. For this reason medical Panel PC can look a little dated because of their rounded corners and no sharp edges. Also the approval cycles can be long, costly and time consuming.
From a functional point of view the requirements are as would be expected from any commercial PC with the additional requirement of extra isolation. Electrocuting a patient is never a good idea. Typically an isolation of 4KV is required for all the I/O interfaces, serial, USB and Ethernet. Similarly the power supply must be of a medical grade provide a guarantee of protection.
