Dual-Certifications and Easy Integration

HIT-W121 is dual-certified. It complies with both EN60601-1/UL60601-1, as well as EN 60950 standards. This makes it suitable for environments that require medical-grade technology for a complete range of application support. HIT-W121 is 43mm slim, and operates fanlessly. It uses VESA75 mounting technology which allows it to fit easily different mounting scenarios. The small form factor and lightweight unit is suitable for many uses, and the single-piece design of the front panel makes it easy to clean. For complete flexibility in integration, HIT-W121 supports a wide variety of operating systems: WES2009, WES7, Windows 7, Windows XP, Fedora Core 13, Ubuntu 10.4, and Android 2.2.

Flexible Design-In Features Support iServices Applications

HIT-W121 has a host of features built in. The powerhouse dual-core processor delivers superlative performance, and the unit can take advantage of COM, LAN and USB connectors for attachment to external peripherals and wired-network support. An LED on the unit can be used for alarms, and the program keys on the front panel can be customized to support one-touch functions as needed. A built-in webcam, speaker and microphone enable internet communication options and there is a privacy indicator to notify the user when the camera is active.

Extendable Options to Meet Specific Needs

HIT-W121 also has many optional features to meet specific needs.
