Parker's latest HPC industrial PCs and PowerStations now have a stainless steel bezel option for its 15" displays, so the computers can be used in FDA-regulated fields such as food processing, pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturing. The bezels go with integrated software tools for FDA 21 CFR Part 11 compliance, Operator Tracking and E-Signatures. This makes for ideal HMI systems for FDA-regulated OEMs, and all with 15" touchscreen displays. The stainless steel is washable, resists corrosion and industrial cleaning chemicals, and doesn't breed bacteria. The bezels use 304 grade steel, but for a more durable bezel, the grade 316 is available by request.
