HC18/122 Windows CE, Vortex M86 (933MHz) processor, 512MB RAM, 4GB Flash

Designed to support IBM's System i5, iSeries, and AS/400 systems, the HC18 feature I-O's award winning 5250 printer emulations and offers an IBM style 122-key 5250 keyboard. The Pro|Edge HC18 Thin Client is based on Windows CE Operating System and driven by a high-speed 1 GHz processor. In addition to host applications, the HC18 is ideal when utilizing applications served up by Citrix Presentation Servers or Microsoft Terminal Services. The CE Operating System requires a minimal amount of RAM and Flash making it an economical, powerful solution.

About the size of a three CD set, Pro|Edge is unobtrusive and occupies a small amount of desktop space. Despite its small size, the HC18 offers the scalability of increasing RAM and Flash.

I-O has partnered with Altiris to provide simple configuration, control and management. As a leader in client software management tools, Altiris offers console and web-based control, reporting alerting, policy driven software delivery, patch management, and other Altiris IT lifecycle management solutions.

Because CE is a read-only operating system, applications cannot be installed on the C8. This important feature prevents users from introducing virus, malware and unwanted programs.
