The Advantech Industrial Automation Group (IAG) presents two products that can be paired perfectly for use in many harsh industrial automation applications such as communication protocol conversion, machine automation and factory automation. 

While the UNO-21xx series is a range of Intel Atom based embedded automation computers, the FPM-2000 series are industrial grade flat panel monitors.

The UNO-2173A and UNO-2178A are IP40 rated Atom-based embedded automation computers, which feature low Energy Star certified power consuming 1.67GHz Intel Atom CPUs; the UNO-2184G has an Intel Core i7 processor. All models have 2GB DDR2 RAM and are capable of working in temperatures from -10°C ~ +70°C, making them ideal for operating in a wide range of environments. 

The UNO-21xx models come with combinations of external ports for increased versatility and to suit the needs of a wide range of applications: these include one HD channel audio, RS-232/485 and RS-232/422/485 ports, which support any required baud rate. Additionally, two GbE ports support teaming function for networking backup while six USB 2.0 ports support an increased variety of peripherals and a printer port. 

Internally the models are equally as versatile with the ability to accept two full sized Mini PCIe, one SIM card and optional PC/104+ and PCI-104 daughterboards, thereby allowing options such as Wi-Fi, 3G modules, additional I/O and fieldbus cards.

The IP65 certified ruggedized all round metal design of the 12”, 15” and 17” FPM-2000 series flat panel monitors ensures they are capable of working in harsh environments while their lockable I/O connector design secures the cables so they won’t come loose. With a reduced front bezel and smaller cut-out dimensions, they will fit directly into machines with limited space such as machine builders.
