ADVANTECH has released the OFPC-215 series open frame panel computer, designed to provide customers with flexibility, performance and integration ease.
The OFPC-215 series includes a touch panel monitor with a computer system box joined together, suitable for integration into large, complex systems. Because of the OFPC-215's modular design, customers can choose the SBC/LCD panel configuration that best suits application needs and use numerous third party components.
The modular design allows for easy upgrades and the flexibility adapt the units to different housings. Scalable from Pentium III CPUs up to 1.26GHz for increased multimedia support, to a VIA low power processor for reduced cost and lower power usage, the OFPC-215 simplifies cabling issues, I/O configuration and chassis design.
Advantech Open Frame computers are designed to fit into confined spaces. The OFPC-215 is based on Advantech’s industrial-proven box PC series, offering a choice of integrated SBCs that can go into housings and be easily mounted on or into equipment.
The LCD touch monitors can be used in harsh environments, including HMI, kiosks and other applications. The steel, open frame design can also integrate customers' specific IDs (faceplates) for image and branding concerns.
The OFPC-215 offers a versatile function set that includes support for 1x SDRAM up to 512MB, 2 x 3.5" HDD bays, PCI and PC/104 expansion, 2 x USB ports, 1 x parallel port, 4 x serial ports, 1 x 100Base-T Ethernet, PS/2 keyboard and mouse ports, MIC-in, SPK-out, Line-in/out, dc-out (for LCD) and CD-audio in.
