noax earns 2017 Red Dot Award for S21WP industrial PC with PCAP touch technology

August 7, 2017 - The Red Dot Award tracks the most prominent trends and appraises the best products worldwide. The award is divided into three disciplines: Product Design, Communication Design, and Design Concept.  Companies from over 50 countries have registered products and innovations.  The award demonstrates how using industrial design as a foundation will lead to success.  The noax S21WP industrial PC with PCAP touch technology won the Red Dot Top Product Design 2017 Award.

The housing is made of finely polished stainless steel, coupled with a non-reflective touchscreen made of hardened safety glass.  noax Technologies‘ S21WP industrial PC is the first industrial PC that offers modified PCAP touch technology that can be operated with gloves. 

The multi-touch functionality offers smartphone-oriented gesture control.   The PC also features an IP69K protection rating, network cards, and on-board interfaces to allow the device to be universally applicable in any type of harsh environment. The S21WP is the result of extensive research and development by the design team at noax Technologies. 

The competition attaches significant amount of importance to the independent judging panel. In order to ensure credibility, no judge may be employed by an industrial company. The approximately 40-person panel of experts reviewed all products on-site for three days. The degree of innovation, quality, functionality, and ecological compatibility are just some of the criteria that are used in the judging process. Products that stand out from the competition thanks to their design have earned this quality seal. The Red Dot Gala will host final celebratory festivities on July 3, 2017 at the Aalto-Theater in Essen.
