Glacier Everest S9000

Glacier Computer, a developer of rugged industrial computing solutions, announced the release of the Everest S9000 stainless-steel rugged computer terminal. The Everest S9000 is designed for customers who require a stainless-steel IP65/NEMA 4 sealed unit to meet the hygienic standards in food processing, healthcare, chemical and pharmaceutical industries. The S9000 is also suitable for conditions that require a water-resistant terminal such as outdoor kiosks, clean rooms and some marine applications.

“We designed the Everest S9000 for a valued customer in food processing who needed a rugged computer terminal that could withstand caustic daily wash-downs and consistently perform to the same standard as the Everest series models they were currently using,” says Dan Poisson, director of engineering for Glacier. “The S9000 stainless steel terminal provides a smooth casing with a flush-mount resistive touch panel and sealed IO connectors making it virtually waterproof.”

The Everest S9000 utilizes the INTEL Atom N270 1.6 GHz processor with a 2.5-inch SATA HDD, Internal 802.11 a/b/g/n, dual internal antennas and 12- and 15-inch displays, and offers optional mounting systems, external power supply and power adaptor. The S9000 will run Windows XP and Windows 7 operating systems.
