Hospital and healthcare applications demand computer equipment that is compact, durable and can be mounted where the equipment is needed. The only problem is that the computer equipment should also be “out of the way” when it is not needed! In most hospitals, computers are not only found on the desktop, but they are also found on the walls, in locked cabinets, on mobile carts or on articulating arms. Laptops don’t provide the durability needed, and desktop equipment is often too bulky. Plus having a separate CPU box requires either that the system box be mounted in the same location as the display and keyboard (not easy when the computer is needed on a mobile cart, overhead arm or wall-mount!)
The IPIX answers the question of “where to mount the CPU box?” because there isn’t one! The computer and LCD display are integrated into a compact, integrated device that can easily be incorporated into your overall design. The IPIX can be mounted in almost any space and mounting solution as well as a variety of power sources.
Industry standard VESA – an industry standard VESA mount (75mm on the IPIX 17/19/22 Core i5 models and 100mm on the IPIX 19 inch e-Series) makes it easy to mount the IPIX all-in-one on almost any cart, wall mount or other custom mounting solution.
Mounts where you need it! The IPIX includes standard 10/100/100 Ethernet to allow connection to your wired hospital network, but if you need to mount the computer in a location without a wired network connection, the optional internal wireless card permits mounting anywhere within reach of your wireless network.
Operates on or off the UPS grid: The internal battery option provides power without requiring a separate uninterruptible power supply (or “UPS”), even if the IPIX is located off the hospital’s UPS grid! But even if the computer is on a UPS outlet, that does not necessarily mean that it will continue to operate through a power failure. There is often a brief gap in power supply during the switchover to backup power, and even a fraction of a second lapse can cause most computers to shut down. The internal battery option on the Datalux IPIX all-in-one medical grade computer can keep the IPIX up and running through this transition.
