New 933MHz panel PCs with DM&P Vortex86 processors for lean low-power HMIs

07-07-2015 | ICOP | Subs & Systems

Developed to be deployed as lean, low-power human machine interfaces (HMIs) ICOP Technology has introduced the new industrial-grade PPC series of 933MHz panel PCs. The compact and fully x86 compatible, rugged Panel PC series in metal housing follows the trend towards client / server architectures with central processing clouds and slim, distributed control terminals as well as industrial-grade thin client installations. Application areas are to be found where low-power designs need industrial robustness and versatile industrial-grade connectivity options at an attractive price point. Target markets are, for example, retail, industrial automation, digital signage and facility management applications, where more complex x86 processors would create greater overhead and costs. The new fanless Panel PC series with 9- or 15-inch touch screens, metal housing and front IP65 protection is equipped with energy-saving low power DM&P Vortex86 processors and is available in various industrial-grade I/O configurations including support of various serial interfaces. Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity is provided by either one or two Ethernet ports or optional Wi-Fi. The Panel PCs support extended operating temperature ranges from 0C to 50C or optional -20C to 60. A programmable Watchdog Timer and numerous certificates such as CE, FCC, VCCI, TUV, NRTL, vibration, shock, IP65 and KCC underline the thoroughbred industrial robustness of the new Panel PCs, says the company.
