Our extensive product portfolio includes Industrial Panel PCs, Industrial Monitors, Box PCs & Fanless Embedded Computers, Rack Mount Computers, ACP ThinManager Ready Thin Clients, Embedded CPU Boards and Video Extender/Switches.

Market Focus

We provide off-the-shelf, full turnkey integration services, and custom ODM/OEM design and development services for the Industrial Automation, Food & Beverage, Pharmaceutical, Oil & Gas, Waste Water Management, and Control Room marketplaces. Our ODM/OEM capabilities help our customers meet exacting specifications and requirements at an affordable price and quick time to market in harsh operating environments.

Manufacturing & Support Capabilities

All of our products are assembled and tested in our ISO 9001: 2008 facility in Fremont, CA, undergoing stringent quality oversight enabling Arista Corporation to provide a two (2) year depot warranty for all computer products and three (3) year depot warranty for all display products. We work on the embedded long roadmap enabling 5+ years continuity of supply and support, complemented by a comprehensive stringent revision control process.

RoHS Compliance

The European Union adopted Directive 2002/95/EC in February 2003 that restricts and prohibits the use of heavy metals (lead, mercury, cadmium, and hexavalent chromium), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) in new electrical and electronic equipment shipped after July 1, 2006. All new products under development at Arista Corporation meet the directive’s requirements.

Conflict Minerals Sourcing Policy

Conflict minerals (columbite-tantalite, cassiterite, wolframite and gold, or their derivatives, including tantalum, tin and tungsten) originating from Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) are sometimes mined and sold by armed groups to finance conflict characterized by extreme levels of violence. Some of these minerals and the metals created from them can make their way into the supply chains of the products used around the world, including those in the electronics industry.

It is the policy of Arista to avoid Conflict Minerals that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in conflict affected regions. Arista is committed to sourcing components and materials from companies that share our values around human rights, ethics and environmental responsibility.

Arista expects its suppliers to commit to the EICC Code of Conduct which includes a provision related to the responsible sourcing of minerals. Pursuant to that Code of Conduct, suppliers must have a policy to reasonably assure that tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold in the products they manufacture are DRC conflict free. Arista will immediately discontinue engagement with suppliers who pose any risk supporting conflict minerals.

Chemical Resistance Monitors and Touch Screens

Chemical Resistance Monitors and Touch Screens.  Industrial monitors and touch screens may be exposed to a number of chemicals that can effect the internal and external monitor components. The chemical resistance of each is outlined below.  

External Components

Other than stainless steel, there are three separate polymeric materials that are exposed to the environment on the front of our panel mount monitors. The chemical resistance of each is outlined below.

Resistive Touch Screen

The surface of the resistive touch screen is made of polyester and is resistant to the following chemicals when exposed for a period of one hour at a temperature of 21°C (70°F):

  • Industrial Chemicals – Acetone, Methylene chloride, Methyl ethyl ketone, Isopropyl alcohol, Hexane, Turpentine, Mineral spirits, Unleaded Gasoline, Diesel Fuel, Motor Oil, Transmission Fluid, Antifreeze, Automotive Hydraulic Fluid, Skydrol.
  • Food Service Chemicals – Ammonia based glass cleaner, Laundry Detergents, Cleaners (Fantastic, Formula 409, Joy, etc.), Vinegar, Coffee, Tea, Grease, Cooking Oil, Salt.

Panel Sealing Gasket

The panel sealing gasket material is a polyether / polyester urethane blend. It is unaffected by mild inorganic acids and bases. It shows modest swelling with oils, greases and other linear hydrocarbons. Strongly polar solvents will greatly swell the material. In most cases, physical properties recover to a great extent as the solvents evaporate.

More specifically, the gasket material is resistant to the following chemicals: Industrial Chemicals Acetone, Methanol, Kerosene, cutting fluids, hydraulic oil, Isopropyl alcohol, mineral spirits, motor oil. Where the chemical resistance of the gasket is inadequate, it is possible to protect the gasket with a bead of Polysulfide sealant.

Protective Tempered Glass Window (non-touch screen units)

The anti-reflective coating on the tempered glass for non-touch monitors is resistant to the following chemicals: Industrial Chemicals Acetone, Ethyl Alcohol, Isopropyl Alcohol(50%), trichloroethylene.

Internal Components

Sulfur Gas Protection (touch screen units)

Sulfur compounds can greatly damage electrical components so sulfur damage is not included in our standard warranty.

For customers who may expose displays to sulfur, we offer special monitor models that incorporate the following features:

  • Glass-Armored Resistive Touch Screen – Custom touch screen with a micro-thin sheet of glass laminated to the polyester top sheet. This glass layer creates a more uniform barrier against sulfur entrance.
  • Vapor-Phase Corrosion Inhibitor Emitter – Small device that emits a continuous flow of vapor, which forms a protective coating on all metal surfaces and provides long-term protection against corrosion by sulfur compounds and a host of other adverse conditions.
  • Touch screen permanently sealed to monitor bezel using epoxy – This solution involves using epoxy to attach the touch screen to the monitor to the bezel, creating a polymeric barrier which helps keep sulfur out of the monitor enclosure.
