    You can write email or call by phone to ask the type you want.
    This is a branch of Taiwan company, I have been went to their company to ask more details for their products, and I also sent the email to order some products.

    AdvanTech.

    Build your own using server grade components?

    I found it far cheaper to just 'Industrialize' an ordinary PC, even if you have to buy an industrial enclosure, the price asked for some of the Factory Floor versions is totally unreasonable for what you get, IMO.
    I have built many PC based systems over the years and often used off the shelf P.C.'s in some very demanding industrial environments with no adverse affects.
    I have also used some of the Advantech line, PC on a card and back plane, and put the systems together with a suitable enclosure.

    I've done the same thing many times. You may even want to consider a thin client at your work center, networked to a server for data collection/distribution.
