Nexcom – Versatile 12.1-inch IP65-rated fanless panel suits various applicationsNov 4 2011 - Subs & Systems [More Subs & Systems Articles]
Hot on the heals of the APPC 1720T series of 17-inch Panel PCs, Nexcom has introduced two 12.1-inch platforms known as APPC 1220T/1221T, which are also based on the powerful Intel Atom D525 CPU. By incorporating this processor and DDR3 memory, the APPC 1220T series Panel PC with fanless design offers double the computing power of similar N270 CPU based products.
For applications which require protection against water, dust or humidity IP certification is essential. Equipped with IP65 compliant front panel, the APPC 1220T series of Panel PC provides protection from liquid and moisture damage which allows users to clean the surface directly using high-pressure water jets. This feature makes the APPC 1220T series especially suitable for applications where stringent hygiene levels are important, such as within the food and beverages industry.
Use of incorrect power voltages may damage electric components and shorten the product life. To solve this problem and to protect the product by converting different voltage inputs, Nexcom’s APPC 1220T series of Panel PC, supports multiple power inputs, from 12V to 30V. This makes the APPC 1220T series ideal for telecoms, factory and machine applications.
In addition, the all-in-one APPC 1220T series, incorporates a vast array of I/O interfaces, offers expansion flexibility for controlling subsystems and automation hardware, it will therefore find applications within warehouses, logistics and access control. The back cover can be easily removed to access the additional 2.5-inch HDD and two mini-PCIe slots.
Two variants are available, APPC 1220T is the standard platform, whilst APPC 1221T has two RS-232/422/485 COM ports with isolation to address industrial applications plus two additional RS-323 COM ports. In addition, one GPIO port for 4 input/output is available for digital control. There is also an optional CAN bus interface to communicate with CAN bus devices, says the company.More news from Nexcom
