What we do


  • Industrial Computers

    Our main activity and specialization is the production and sale of industrial computers. Resistance to vibrations, dust and high operating temperatures allows the use of these computers not only in demanding industrial environments, but also in transport, military, telecommunications, in the IRS and wherever high demands on performance and reliability are placed on computing technology. Every computer that passes through our production undergoes demanding stress tests and thorough output control.

  • Industrial Computers with Display

    All-In-One industrial computers with display are an invaluable instrument in many industries today. They can be used not only to display important production data or processes, but also to control machines and entire production lines or to read data from sensors and transducers. All of this is combined with the comfort of using a touch screen that can be controlled even with rough work gloves. They can easily handle dust, grease, rough handling as well as humidity and high temperatures.

  • Industrial Automation and Data Acquisition

    We offer a range of services in the field of automation, digitization and data collection. From the sale of individual components and elements, through consulting and design activities to project orders with the possibility of complex turnkey delivery. In our offer you will find everything from industrial switches, modems, gateways, media converters, hubs, serial buses, multiport computer cards, external I/O modules, PLC automation and elements for optics, to products for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

  • Industrial Peripherals and Components

    Apart from industrial computers, we also offer various industrial accessories and components. In addition to industrial LCD monitors and displays, which must withstand rough handling and high temperatures, there are also steel and silicon keyboards, computer cases, redundant power supplies, industrial motherboards, SBCs, backplanes and industrial memories and disks. All of these products are designed from the ground up to be manufactured for harsh industrial environments.

  • Rugged Laptops and Tablets

    Some employees need to be mobile and still have access to important data and systems. The solution is to use laptops and tablets. However, for harsh industrial conditions or outdoor environments, ordinary commercial products are not suitable. This is where rugged laptops and tablets come in, with their hardened bodies and higher quality components to withstand harsh conditions such as very low or high temperatures, dust, humidity, rain or rough handling and drops.

  • Information Kiosks

    We have been developing and manufacturing information kiosks for many years. We offer solutions for indoor and outdoor applications. Our customers are city and municipal self-governments, libraries, ZOOs, exhibition centres, showrooms, office buildings, hospitals, shopping centres, as well as manufacturing companies not only in the Czech Republic. The kiosks we offer stand out for their timeless functional design, high vandal resistance, quality finish, premium materials and the possibility of any customization.

  • Medical IT Equipment

    In our portfolio you will also find some devices for medical applications. These include special diagnostic monitors and computers, as well as patient bed-side terminals to increase patient comfort and special antibacterial medical keyboards and mice. A special category is computer tablets that assist the integrated rescue system during rescue operations or are used to perform electronic rounds and support the dispensing of medication to hospitalised patients. Selected devices also have medical certification EN 60601-1.

  • Software Solutions

    Besides manufacturing and distributing industrial computers, components and other industrial hardware, we also focus on the supply and implementation of industrial software solutions. Either our own custom-made solutions or those of our proven and reliable partners. Thanks to this, we can offer you, for example, a complex modular production system, machine monitoring, measurement of various physical variables, localization and tracking of materials, goods or people or complex solutions for information kiosks.
