This line of computers is up to the most intense challenges of the industrial world. These are the devices you snap into the DIN rails of control cabinets and electrical panels for flawless operation. They take a beating and never miss a step. Few heavy-industrial computers offer solid processing performance with genuine reliability and durability.
Let’s talk about pure metrics. The ICO300-83B is a great sample to scrutinize. For starters, this computer operates in temperatures between -40° and 70°C. The aluminum and heavy-steel housing enables it to work safely outdoors and in other demanding locations. It comes with a DIN-rail mount for easy installation and protection from massive industrial vibrations. And, it is amply shielded against power input irregularities and transients. Another display of toughness surrounds the IG902-H. This edge computer is also an industrial router and firewall that offers IPsec, secure tunnel, PPTP, and SSL secure connections. Plus, it draws little power.
The extreme durability of this line does not come at the price of effective processing. The rBOX510-6COM is just one example of powerful embedded computing. Hosting a power-saving Intel Atom processor, this computer matches the ruggedness of any in this product line. Meanwhile, it hosts 6 expandable, isolated RS-232/422/485 ports, 2 isolated Ethernet ports, 16 isolated DIO lines, and 2 USB ports. It also enjoys LED diagnostics and supports AXView remote monitoring. Most importantly, the rBOX510 is ATEX and Class 1, Division 2 rated for explosive environments. It is proof positive that a carefully crafted, embedded system can push the limits of data processing while enduring the worst working conditions possible.
It seems every other week is filled with news of massive and dangerous security leaks. Data breaches are the modern existential crises for network managers; adequate security measures are a must. Of course, balancing security with performance and cost is the task that burdens the best minds in IT. For industrial communications, these issues are solved by our latest line of advanced gateways with firewall protection. They are built on the premise of fast, reliable, and scalable security that minimizes labor and oversight.
Consider the ICO310, which is a fanless gateway powered by an Intel Celeron N3060 processor. The quad-core processor is supported by 8 GB of memory. Expandable I/O includes 2 isolated Gigabit LAN ports, 4 USB 2.0/3.0 ports, 2 RS-232/422/485 ports, a VGA port, a DIO interface, 2 PCI Express slots, 1 SIM slot, and 3 internal antennas that support 4G LTE and Wi-Fi. If that wasn’t enough, it also packs Power over Ethernet (PoE) to further simplify network design. It mounts on standard DIN rails and operates nominally from -20° to 60°C.
Complementary, the ICO300 puts a similar host of Internet of Things (IoT) features on an Intel Atom E3815. It allows you to trade a little speed for more durability, resulting in a rugged machine that works tirelessly. Both support Microsoft Azure IoT and Windows 10 IoT Core.
