Specialized industrial PC for toll application

Issue

The temperature variations in the road toll booths between Dijon and Marseille range between + 45 ° C and -15 ° C. At the same time, the footprint remains very constrained and maintenance must be done urgently not to slow traffic. Our client was looking for a long-lasting industrial partner to produce a custom-made computer that meets these specifications.
