Irvine, CA, June 2017 – Advantech, a leading industrial computing platform provider, is pleased to announce its UTC-542 all-in-one (AiO) touch computer. Powered by a sixth-generation Intel® Core™ i5-6300U processor and equipped with up to 16 GB of memory, UTC-542 delivers excellent high-performance computing. Designed to support diverse interactive display applications, UTC-542 features a 42.6-inch 16:9 widescreen TFT LCD monitor that offers 1920 x 1080 resolution and 450-nit brightness, and can be mirror coated to support smart mirror and interactive augmented reality applications. Rich I/O ports, including 2 Gigabit Ethernet ports, 2 COM, and up to 4 USB ports, increase the system’s extendibility and flexibility, while the IP65-rated front panel and fanless design offer industrial-grade reliability that ensures stable operation. With the provision of Wi-Fi connectivity and multiple OS support, as well as the ability to integrate diverse optional peripherals, UTC-542 provides the ideal solution for interactive signage in retail stores, industrial signage in factories, self-service kiosks in transportation hubs, and information signage in public spaces.

Industrial-Grade AiO System Offers Excellent Performance and Multiple OS Support

UTC-542 is powered by a sixth-generation Intel® Core™ i5-6300U processor that delivers 250% faster computing speeds, 30-fold superior graphics performance, and 3 times longer battery life compared to that provided by previous generation processors. To ensure flexible installation and suitability for a wide range of applications, UTC-542 supports multiple OS, including Windows® Embedded Standard 7/8, Windows® 10 IoT Enterprise, Linux Ubuntu 14.04, and Android 4.4.2. Like the other models in Advantech’s UTC series, UTC-542 features a low-power, fanless system design for superior energy efficiency and to ensure quiet operation and prevent the accumulation of dust and foreign contaminants, which extends the overall product lifecycle. Moreover, in accordance with environmental specifications for industrial and commercial operation environments, the system’s front panel is IP65-rated for water and dust protection, ensuring industrial-grade reliability for stable operations.

42.6” TFT LCD with Optional Mirror Coating for Diverse Display Applications

Featuring a 42.6-inch 16:9 widescreen TFT LCD monitor that supports 1920 x 1080 resolution and 450-nit brightness, UTC-542 offers a wide viewing angle and enhanced visuals aimed at industrial-grade display applications. To satisfy diverse usage requirements, the UTC-542 system is available with either a clear glass or mirrored monitor. The mirrored model is equipped with a 3H surface hardness anti-glare mirror coating that offers scratch resistance and an enhanced viewing experience for interactive augmented reality applications. Meanwhile, the clear glass PCAP touch model offers unrivalled optical clarity, high durability, and long-term temperature stability. Regardless of the monitor type, both models feature an ultra-thin bezel design (only 21 mm for the mirrored model, and 34 mm for the PCAP model) that maximizes the display space, and an extremely responsive touchscreen that supports multi-touch control to enable simultaneous multi-user operation.

Hot-Swappable HDD/SSD and Rich I/O Ports for Flexible Expansion

UTC-542 is also equipped with dual HDD/SSD slots that support RAID storage for improved performance, enhanced reliability, convenient database recovery, and advanced data protection. Moreover, the HDD/SSD slots feature a hot-swappable design, which enables easy upgrades without dismantling the entire system. Another key advantage of UTC-542 is its high expandability for diverse applications. In addition to rich I/O ports, including 2 Gigabit Ethernet (with Wake-on-LAN support), 2 COM, 1 VGA, 1 HDMI, and up to 4 USB ports, UTC-542 can be equipped with a wide variety of application-oriented peripherals, such as a camera, magnetic strip reader, barcode scanner, IC card reader, and NFC/RFID modules, to extend the system functions according to specific usage requirements. With its durability to withstand industrial operations and expandability to support diverse applications, Advantech’s innovative UTC-542 touch panel computer provides the ideal display solution for enhancing customer engagement and increasing brand awareness.
