The IPIX computer is an all-in-one computer system designed specifically for point-of-care applications in hospitals and clinics and for use on other medical devices. The IPIX combines a 19 inch LCD display with a powerful Intel Core i5 processor and Datalux also offers the Core i5-powered IPIX in a 17 inch and 20 inch model. The IPIX e-Series, powered by an Intel Atom processor is available only with a 19” LCD display. Because they share the same front panel, the 19” IPIX and e-Series share features not available on the 17 and 20 inch models, including:
- IP-65 rated to prevent intrusion of dust and water (front panel only)
- 1.3MP internal camera and microphone (optional)
- Proximity sensor for energy efficiency
Designed as a medical grade computer system and compliant with EN-60601-1-2 standards*, the IPIX 19” all-in-one PC is designed to allow the computer system to easily be wiped clean for the purposes of infection control. The IPIX 19” system also was designed and tested to IP-65 standards against the intrusion of dust and water (front panel only).
Thin, compact and lightweight, the IPIX can be easily adapted to many different uses and mounting solutions (mobile carts, wall mounts, wall cabinets, desktop use).
An optional internal Lithium ion battery can provide backup power during a power loss. For wall mounted and desktop mounted PCs, this internal battery is an alternative to installing a separate uninterruptible power supply (UPS) in a hallway, patient room or nurse’s station. Or, if PCs are already connected to a hospital generator system, the internal battery keeps the IPIX online for the brief power interruption that occurs at switchover during a power loss. Each IPIX includes an internal charger and front panel indicators for the backup battery.
Utilizing mobile computer components, the all IPIX computer systems are designed to be energy efficient and easily mobile, allowing for a wide range of power options. The 17 and 19 inch IPIX are designed for long battery life for cart-mounted use when an external battery system is used. For other applications, an optional medical-grade AC power supply can provide 15VDC. The 17 and 19 inc” IPIX systems were designed to accommodate DC power input from 10VDC to 18VDC. (When the internal Lithium-ion battery is used, 15Vor more is required to charge the internal battery). For optimal energy efficiency, power management settings should also be used.
The IPIX incorporates powerful Intel microprocessors, removable shock-mounted SATA hard drives (solid state drives optional), up to 4GB of system memory, optional Intel 802.11abgn Wi-Fi, and fully supports Microsoft Windows 7 Professional.
The IPIX computer system is designed, built and supported in the USA by Datalux Corporation in Winchester, Virginia. The current IPIX is a 6th generation product and has been designed to provide reliable service in demanding healthcare application environments. Every Datalux IPIX system includes a standard 3-year manufacturers’ warranty! Additional warranty and deployment services are available, including extended warranties, custom drive imaging, O/S downgrade and activation, and premium warranty services.
*The 17” IPIX is EN-60601-1-2 certified. The 19” IPIX and e-Series were designed to EN-60601-1-2 standards and pending test results. The 20” IPIX was designed to EN-60601-1-2 standards.
