Those who have invested much of their capital in their industrial computers know that damage to their equipment will always lead to a setback in profits.
When the machinery fails, it can lead to loss of income that can affect the livelihood of those who operate on the manufacturing floor.
Troubleshooting various concerns with equipment can make it last longer, and with proper maintenance, it can be easier to generate more use out of your computers.

Which brings us back, of course, to the question; will mechanical or digital keyboards work for panel PCs? It might be r…
