Industrial PCs are an "industrialised" computers which are suitable for use in harsher environments rather than office surroundings. Industrial PC components, typically they operate over greater temperature ranges, they can be designed to be drop, dust and waterproof and are optimised for 24/7 use. These qualities are essential when designing systems that will be used daily for long periods in an industrial or "harsh" environment. Many industrial computers are contained within 19" rack mounting chassis that can be installed into rack mount cabinets or wall mounted enclosures. Most industrial PCs have a wide range of I/O requirements such as multiple USB ports, serial ports, analogue and digital I/O.
Industrial PC components have a long production life, typically this is between 5 and 7 years, commercial PC components have a short production window and are subject to change or end of life without notice.
