AutoCAD RAM Requirement

How Much RAM Do I Need in My Industrial PC?

When shopping for new industrial PCs, there are many important factors to consider. CPU age and clock speed, hard drive space, and availability of I/O ports are all crucial considerations to make when deciding on the equipment that will keep your facility running in the years to come. But one critical, and usually overlooked, aspect of industrial PCs to consider when purchasing a new setup is the amount of random access memory (RAM) they contain.

 

What Is RAM In An Industrial PC?

When we think of an Industrial PC, we like to imagine one tower that does everything itself. But this is actually not the case, and even in the smallest microcontrollers different components make up the larger computer. RAM serves a secondary storage for your computer alongside your hard drive, but has a specific task. Instead of saving data such as programs and files on a long term basis, RAM is actually empty when the computer is not in use. When you use a program, such as autoCAD, Premiere Pro, or even SOLIDWORKS, on your industrial PC the program is copied from the hard drive to the RAM. Hard drives have a certain amount of data they can transfer around the Industrial PC every second, and RAM has a much higher rate of data transfer; Therefore RAM allows for programs, files, and data in use to be easily accessed by the industrial PC for immediate use.

How Much RAM Do I Need In My Industrial PC?

While everyone’s industrial PC needs vary, a good rule of thumb when looking at RAM is: The more, the better. There simply is no real drawbacks to having as much RAM as possible, as more RAM allows more programs, files, and data to be in use at once on your Industrial PC. However, there is a minimum amount of RAM for many programs that should be beared in mind. For instance, SOLIDWORKS requires a minimum of 16 gigabytes (gb) of RAM to function and 32 gb to work optimally. The Rugged Mini E3 from Tangent can be configured to both a 16 gb and 32 gb amount of RAM, enabling this industrial PC to function as a standalone SOLIDWORKS workstation or general use station. Every program should have a minimum system requirements section listed on its software page which will tell you how much RAM is needed for the program.

 

Why Should My Industrial PC Have More Ram Than It Needs?

As technology progresses, the file sizes of programs are getting bigger, and require more computing power to handle. SOLIDWORKS now recommends the use of solid state drives over hard drives due to their significantly faster data transfer speeds. Having more RAM than is required for programs is an easy way to future-proof your industrial PC purchase. In the short run, a larger pool of RAM allows your industrial PC to multitask, running multiple industrial software at once. In the long run, your industrial PC will still be able to handle the new, updated industrial software without needing an upgrade itself.

 

RAM In Industrial PCs

Whether you put the maximum or minimum amount of RAM in your industrial PCs, it is important to understand what RAM does and make an informed decision on the matter. Tangent industrial PCs have a wide range of RAM options, from 4gb up to 32 gb, allowing you to make the best decision possible for your facility.

Medical All-In-One PCs Can Greatly Aid Early Detection Efforts In Hospitals

How Touchscreen Computers Can Aid Early Detection Efforts

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) and cancer are two of the leading causes of death globally, and the combat of these conditions is critical to improving general public health. The best methods of treating such diseases rely on the early detection of these medical issues, which is not always possible. Early detection efforts can be stalled by a lack of available medical personnel, slow medical computers, or a combination of both. However, a study by Yoong SL, Carey ML, Sanson-Fisher RW in BMJ Open sheds light on a promising technology that can aid early detection efforts: 

Tangent CL24 Touch Screen Medical LCD Monitor

Touchscreen Medical Devices

The study found that a rise in the prominence of touchscreen computers, such as those featuring medical LCD monitors, increased the potential of these technologies to assist in health risk factor assessment as well as the delivery of healthcare advice. Patients and doctors found the use of touchscreen devices, such as medical lLCD monitor enabled touchscreen computers, to be of great use in taking down patient information, and it’s easy to see why.

 

Touchscreen Medical LCD Monitors: Built For The Hospital

The study sought to uncover whether or not both patients and doctors were comfortable with the use of touchscreen medical devices to take down information, as these devices prove to be a fast way of digitizing patient information. The simple reason that medical LCD monitors are valuable tools in aiding early detection efforts is the fact that they are built for the medical space and allow doctors the ergonomics of a commercial tablet and the compliance of medical grade equipment. Medical LCD monitors are IEC 60601-1-2 4th Edition Certified for use in the medical setting, and feature an antimicrobial enclosure that negates the growth of harmful pathogens. When using medical LCD monitors, the only thing doctors have to worry about is their patient’s well-being.

Many Sizes Of Medical LCD Monitors To Choose From

The study suggested that the small form factor of touchscreen medical devices allowed for robust and mobile use in early detection efforts, and there is good reason why. Touchscreen medical LCD monitors come in many different sizes to fit every need in the medical setting. Tangent’s lineup of medical grade tablets feature similar touchscreen medical LCD monitor displays that allow them to be used in such a mobile manner. Even Tangent’s desktop based medical grade computers feature touchscreen medical LCD monitors that allow for these all in one PCs to make full use of their innovative design, allowing doctors to easily access patient information with just a touch. Of course, all of these medical LCD monitor based computers and tablets are IEC 60601-1-2 Certified and feature antimicrobial enclosures.

 

Early Detection Made Easy

Early detection efforts are crucial to creating a safer, healthier world. Touchscreen computers like those featuring medical LCD monitors are one way to expedite the early detection process, potentially saving lives, and time, in the process.

The Importance Of Digital Health Records

In no other field is staying on the edge of technology as important as it is in the medical field. Each day, new advances in medical technology are helping people live longer, happier lives. While some technology can assist in diagnosing, patient care, or even surgery, we should not overlook the clerical side of technology that is making hospital paperwork far more efficient. 

 

According to a study commissioned by Phillips on future health, 80% of medical professionals have shared information electronically and 76% utilize digital health records (DHRs) on their medical grade PCs. However, despite this large DHR utilization, only 57% report that having full access to a patient’s DHR has positively impacted them. With the disparity between these two statistics, it’s important to address the lack of enthusiasm surrounding the widespread implementation of DHR use.

 

Ditch The Pen And Paper

While DHRs are quickly becoming the de facto method of patient information storage, sometimes vital information is left out unintentionally. When doctors take pen and paper notes, or rely on scribes to take notes for them, they create valuable insight into a patient’s life. What they eat, their allergies, their daily routines; all things that can directly affect their health. However, there is no guarantee that these hard copy notes will ever be digitized, and potentially life saving details can be left out of the DHR. Encourage your medical staff to fully utilize their medical grade PC when taking notes to ensure that all patient information is digitized. Many medical grade PCs and medical panel PCs come equipped with a front facing camera, so in the event a staff member does write down crucial information, it can be easily added to the patient’s DHR.

 

Easy Information Access

While professional medical staff may find DHRs easy to use when they have them, they may be off put by how difficult they are to find. Medical panel PCs with smartcard readers and RFID technology can rectify this problem by allowing professional medical staff to safely and securely store the pathing to patient information, without having to worry about memorizing the correct way to get to the patient’s information. The same smartcard technology can be used to allow professional medical staff to login to their medical panel PC or medical grade PC without having to remember a long and complex password, saving them from a potential headache and call to I.T. The RFID technology utilized by medical grade PC’s can also be used to track medical equipment that is shuffled around the hospital, allowing for every item to be accounted for.

 

Ease Of Access

It’s no secret that some people are averse to technology, but that does not mean we can’t make them more comfortable with it in the workplace. Medical panel PCs are medical grade PCs that feature a sleek, all in one design. That means that they can function as fully fledged medical grade PCs without needing a bulky tower, keyboard, mouse, or separate monitor. Simply plug them in, and they are good to go. The simplicity of medical panel PCs’ design and their robust features such as smartcard readers and RFID technology means that they are sure to raise professional medical staff’s mood towards the digital side of their job. Medical grade PCs are built for the medical world, and can make medical staff’s use of DHRs far more positive.

Medical Monitors For Better Telemedicine


While we would all like to meet our doctors in person for our personal care, this is not always possible. Patients with disabling conditions, those bed ridden, and others who are simply too sick to come into the doctor’s office for a visit may feel alienated from the care they have come to expect from their primary care physician. Telemedicine offers a promising solution to this crisis, allowing for patients to meet with their primary care physicians remotely. In essence, Telemedicine utilizes technology such as
medical LCD monitors to remotely connect a physicians sitting in their office to a patient resting at home.

 

Who Needs Telemedicine?

While it may seem like the need for telemedicine over a medical LCD display is slim, in reality 61 million American Adults, or 26% of all Americans, live with a disability according to the CDC. Further, 13.7% of Americans are mobility impaired in some way or another, comprising more than 1 in 10 Americans. These Americans need medical care the most, and should not be excluded from seeing their primary care physician on a routine basis. Medical LCD monitors can help over 1 in 10 Americans access the medical care they need without putting an undue burden on them.

 

Using Telemedicine To The Fullest Extent

The reason that telemedicine that utilizes medical LCD monitors  is so promising over a traditional phone call is the face-to-face connection that it allows for. Over a phone call, Doctors have no clue what their patients look like at that moment and have to diagnose or treat purely based on the patient’s descriptions. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. Medical LCD monitors  allow doctors to interact fully with patients, and see them as if they were sitting in the same room.

Medix E22B
Medix E22B

With a medical grade PC like the Medix E22B, doctors can video call their patients with a high pixel camera that allows for pristine video quality. Over such a call, doctors can ask patients to hold up areas of their body that need diagnosing, and take a screenshot of the video. Where medical LCD monitors fit into this equation is as a second monitor. A second medical LCD display monitor allows doctors to dedicate their primary monitor to the video call with their patient. This allows the doctor the freedom of browsing medical records, looking up medical information, or taking notes on the medical LCD display without interrupting their video call with their patient. Patients will feel more confident that they are in good hands, as their doctor never leaves them over the course of the video call.

 

Medical LCD Monitors: A Win-Win

While there is no one size fits all solution to medical care, there are small solutions that can make a big difference for those underserved by traditional medical care. Medical LCD monitors are one tool that can make telemedicine better, friendlier, and more accessible to those who truly rely on such care options.

The Smart Factory May Save U.S. Manufacturing

It’s no secret that U.S. manufacturing has been in a steady decline in recent years. Outsourcing, cost of labor, and other factors have made the price of manufacturing in the U.S. soar. But this trend may soon reverse, as a survey by Deloitte and the Manufacturers Alliance for Productivity and Innovation (MAPI) suggests, thanks in part to the revolution of smart factories. A smart factory, as described the survey, is one utilizing the latest technology such as industrial grade PCs to create a digitized factory. Deploying the latest technology into your factory can help transform it into a smart factory, potentially tripling productivity.

The Stagnation Of Labor Productivity

While wages for workers have remained relatively constant over the last few decades, productivity has seen a drastic increase. This is good news for manufacturers, as it allows for a wider profit margin. However, this trend appears to have come to an end as the survey concluded, “In spite of the continual improvements in equipment, software, and management approaches, the annual labor productivity growth rate in the United States was around 0.7 percent in the years between 2007 and 2018, and showed zero net average growth during the past five years.”

 

However, factories in the process of turning into or are already smart factories have reported up to 10% gains in as little as three years. These early adopters of the smart factory lifestyle expect to increase their productivity across the board another 2% over the next year!

 

Transforming Your Factory Into A Smart Factory

In an age where even your fridge can be “smart” it is important that we determine what a smart factory actually looks like. In order to truly be a smart factory, it will take more than just having wifi for everyone’s laptops. Deploying and utilizing the internet of things (IoT), smart transfer systems, cloud computing technology, analytics, artificial intelligence, and augmented reality systems will be crucial to the smart factory of tomorrow. One thing that all of these new technologies have in common is their ability to utilize industrial grade PCs.

Face-To-Face: The Patient’s Preference

It almost goes without saying that as social creatures, people love talking to people. But in today’s modern world, machines and automation are taking the human element out of many sectors of the economy, leading people to feel isolated from the institutions they rely upon. Nowhere else is this as pronounced as in the medical field, where doctor time spent with patients in primary care visits has dropped a whopping 18% in a mere four years. Technology, while at the crux of this crisis, also lends us a solution in the form of Medical Panel PCs.

 

What Is A Medical Panel PC?

A medical panel PC is a type of medical grade computer, that unlike standard desktop computers, can help increase the number of times doctors spend face-to-face with their patients. Typical desktop computers are bulky, sitting under a desk collecting dust and rely upon external hardware such as mice, keyboards, and monitors to function. Medical panel PCs, like the Medix M24T from Tangent are just the opposite, featuring a sleek design and utilizing a built-in touchscreen to function. Because of this medical grade computer’s all-in-one design, the Medix M24T requires no peripherals and can stand alone.

How Can Stress Be Reduced In The Industrial Workplace? Industrial Grade PCs May Hold The Key.

Stress impacts us in a variety of different ways. From our relationships with others to our quality of sleep, stress limits our ability to function at our prime. When workers bring stress into the job site, it can lead to a drastic increase in accidents in the workplace. According to Dr. David Spiegel, a medical director of the Stanford Center on Stress and Health, “[i]t’s very clear that a big proportion of safety problems are due to human error, and some of that is related to stress.” Companies hoping to retain the edge in the increasingly competitive industrial sector will need to find ways to reduce stress and hassle in the workplace, not only to avoid costly accidents but to increase productivity overall. To that end, industrial grade PCs offer a compelling avenue for decreasing frustrations in the workplace, freeing workers from the stress of handling subpar technology.

Industrial Grade PC’s are Tough, Versatile Products Employees Can Rely Upon.

When an employee is faced with pressing deadlines and the day-to-day demands of their job, the last thing they need is a piece of equipment they cannot rely upon. Industrial grade PCs perform where commercial PCs cannot. For instance, the R14 Industrial Tablet PC, featuring a 14” screen and dual, high capacity batteries that can sustain up to 18+ hours of demanding video-based programs, allowing for usage well beyond the typical 8-hour workday. The R14 can also, like many other of Tangent’s industrial grade PCs, withstand temperatures ranging from -4° to 140°F, allowing for use in nearly any industrial or manufacturing environment. Without the worry about whether or not their equipment can perform across a wide range of environments, and with a battery capacity over twice the standard workday , employees with industrial grade PCs can focus solely on the critical aspects of their role.

Will Automation Take Over Manufacturing?

It’s a both awe-inspiring, and terrifying prospect: a fully automated factory. While there are debates surrounding the use of such facilities, a fully automated facility is still some time away. Scott Anderson, director of Amazon Robotics Fulfillment recently said in an interview with Reuters that the technology needed to automate an entire Amazon facility was still at least a decade away. Until then, the prospect of automating every aspect of a manufacturing facility remains just as unlikely as occurring. However, this does not mean that there aren’t ways of upgrading your facility with automation technology, and increasing efficiency and reducing cost in the process.

Industrial grade computers are the backbone of any modern-day manufacturing facility, and rightly so. Industrial grade computers serve as a bridge between automation and good old fashioned labor, allowing for workers to finish jobs that used to take hours in just minutes. Just like how Email reduced the waiting time for correspondence from days to seconds, industrial-grade computers have exponentially increased worker productivity. Their use in quickening tasks extends beyond operating as workstations; industrial grade computers can help turn your facility into a smart facility.

 

Creating Networks

One of the rising uses of industrial grade computers is the creation of facility wide networks. These networks can be used to monitor sensors, change up the production line, and even provide real time reports on errors and issues. Industrial grade computers, like the Rugged Mini C from Tangent, feature up to eight ethernet ports for connectivity. These ethernet ports can each handle up to 2.5 GT/s of data transfer, allowing the Mini C to easily communicate information from one end of the facility to the other with lightning speed. The Mini C’s small form factor, less than that of a cereal box, combined with flexible mounting options allows this industrial grade computer to be placed anywhere and everywhere.

 

Going Where Workers Can’t

While it would be nice to have a worker perform real time analysis of site that’s underwater, freezing cold, or freezing hot 24/7, this simply just is not possible. That’s where industrial grade computers like the Rugged Mini O from Tangent come in. The Rugged Mini O is IP69K certified water and dust proof, allowing for it to be used in situations where workers simply cannot be. This IP69K rating is complemented by an extreme operating temperature range of -40°F to 185°F. This industrial grade computer can be mounted in locations where other computers simply could not, and become a vital part of your industrial grade computer network.

 

Staying Safe And Secure

With every new leap in automation technology, there is an equal leap in the ability of phishers and hackers to hijack your facility. These hackers may be benign malevolent, but either way keeping them out of your facility is a top priority. As more components of your facility become automated, it is important to keep the software of each individual device up to date. This can help reduce the likelihood of hackers being able to find backdoors into your systems. Industrial grade computers like the Rugged Mini E3 from Tangent come equipped with a trusted platform module from Infineon. This security module can help beef up the security protocols of your network by employing cryptography and encryption algorithms to protect the integrity and authenticity of embedded devices and systems.

 

Automation: It’s On The Way

While automation is nowhere near ready for full deployment, it is on the horizon. Keeping your facility up to date with the latest industrial grade computers can help bridge the gap between modern-day labor and the future of automation.

Preventing Infections In A Post-Antibiotic World

The Center for Disease Control And Prevention just released a 2019 AR threats report titled Antibiotic Resistance Threats in the United States, with some startling findings for the calendar year. The report found that 2.8 million antibiotic-resistant infections occur in the U.S. every year, resulting in 35,000 deaths. That’s nearly 1% of the U.S. population succumbing to an antibiotic-resistant infection every year, and a death every 15 minutes. The report goes on further to suggest, “Stop referring to a coming post-antibiotic era — it’s already here.” Keeping hospitals sanitary has never been so important, as reducing infections increasingly becomes the surest way of preventing antibiotic-resistant infection fatalities.

While the findings of the 2019 AR threats report are worrisome, there are ways you can help prevent antibiotic-resistant infections from occurring in the first place. High traffic locations in hospitals are prone to bacterial buildup, and these areas should be cleaned as regularly as possible. Similarly, medical computers constitute one of the most widely used tools in the medical setting, and can quickly become hotbeds for bacterial growth. Choosing the right medical computers for your hospital can drastically reduce the spread of bacteria via medical staff.

 

Medical Computers With Antimicrobial Enclosure

From medical assistants, nurses, and doctors, medical computers can change hands between multiple hospital staff members throughout the day. Each time a member of the medical staff interacts with a new patient, they are potentially spreading antibiotic-resistant bacteria to both the patient and other employees via medical computers. Ensuring that your staff’s medical computers have an antimicrobial enclosure is one way to keep this potential spread to a minimum. Antimicrobial enclosures feature an antimicrobial agent that clings to the surface of the medical computer, mitigating the growth of bacteria and helping reduce the chance of infection.

 

Fanless Medical Computers

Not all medical computers are created equal, but all medical computers should be fanless medical computers. Fanless medical computers, like the Medix T24B have passive cooling technology that allows them to regulate their temperature without the use of a computer fan. Unlike traditional fan-cooled computers, fanless medical computers do not circulate air inside them. This means that fanless medical computers do not build up dust, pathogens, and other contaminants inside their enclosure. If not cleaned out, the insides of traditional computers can become a breeding ground of bacteria, as more dust and dead skin cells find their way in and stick. Fanless medical computers offer a cleaner, safer way to provide medical computing power in the hospital setting.

Water Resistant Medical Computers

One critical feature of medical computers is the ability to repel liquids. This allows for medical computers to be cleaned regularly with cleaning agents, without damaging the sensitive components within. Medical computers like the Medix KW Line from Tangent feature an IP54 certified water resistant front panel, allowing for the touch screen to be cleaned without damaging the antimicrobial enclosure. The combination of an antimicrobial enclosure and water resistance allows for medical computers to be the last thing you have to worry about causing infections in the hospital.

With a person dying every 15 minutes from an antibiotic resistant infection, it is time hospitals took the prevention of such diseases as seriously as possible. Medical computers from Tangent can help reduce the spread of bacteria in one of the most trafficked areas of hospitals.
