BST offers a wide range of rugged LCD panel PCs, in-vehicle and embedded PCs.
We also offer a custom-design service whereby the PCs are built to your specifications and customised configuration.
Our range is suitable for wide-temperature fanless computing, machine vision platforms, ultra-compact fanless controllers, in-vehicle computing, surveillance, video analytics and GPU computing. They feature multi-mounting options (such as DIN, VESA and wall), support for multiple display monitors and Power over Ethernet (PoE) ports for video surveillance.
With military, railway and marine certifications, our ultra-rugged embedded PCs have been designed for transport applications such as emergency services, mining vehicles, public transport, aerospace & aviation, utilities, field services and shipping.
These ultra-rugged PCs have 10+ years of availability and 20+ years repairability for long-term reliability and consistent use, reducing the total cost of ownership and allowing for greater ease of mind through consistent product performance.
