Throughout the last decade the industrial and commercial computing landscape has dramatically changed. Small scale embedded computing systems now span all aspects of modern life and there are many examples of their use in government, commercial, industrial and scientific applications.

Typical industries and applications include:

Transportation applications such as Rail Track Routing Systems, Marine Navigation, Aircraft and In-Vehicle computers,

Mining Application such as Heavy Vehicle and Machine Control, Environmental Monitoring and Communications,

Process Control applications such as Chemical, Pharmaceutical and Food production,

Commercial applications such as Digital Signage, Video Wall Displays, Vending Machines, Kiosk and Ticketing Machines, Security and Surveillance Systems,

Networking Infrastructure including Firewalls and Routers and

Medical applications that require life critical systems.

All of these applications require a computer that is dedicated to handling a specific task. This allows design engineers to optimize the embedded computer for a particular application and environment resulting in reduced size and increased reliability and performance.

Many of today’s applications require compact highly reliable or rugged embedded systems that can withstand shock and vibration, wide temperature ranges and dusty environments.

Modern processors and mobile chipsets featuring high processing power and low power requirements have allowed Industrial PC designers to develop a range of off-the-shelf embedded computers with reduced case sizes and passive cooling systems. Commonly known as Box PCs or stand-alone embedded controllers these rugged systems are usually constructed in an extruded aluminium case that doubles as a passive heatsink

By utilizing state of the art mobile processors and chipsets designed for the laptop market and what is effectively an over sized passive cooling system it is possible to produce a fanless embedded PC that is computationally powerful, has a small footprint and is extremely rugged.

In addition, the Box PCs fanless design reduces the possibility of airborne corrosive or conductive materials entering the system thereby increasing its long-term reliability.

Energy efficiency, rugged and reliable small footprint computers with certificated embedded OS support, Box PCs from Interworld Electronics provide a high performance solution for industrial control applications. Box PCs fall into three categories: Expandable, Compact and Ultra-slim.

Expandable Box PCs provide bus expansion options for add-in cards

Common computer card expansion slots include PCI and PCI-Express. Models with one or two expansion slots are available. When two slots are provided the units can usually be configured with either two PCI slots or two PCI-e slots or one of each. Expandable Box PCs are medium sized systems that provide extensive connectivity options. Features include:

  • Fanless operation
  • High end processors
  • PCI and PCI-Express expansion slots
  • Multiple COM ports, USB ports, Ethernet Ports and WiFi
  • Memory and Sim Card slots, Digital I/O and u to 3 Video outputs
  • High vibration and shock protection
  • Wide Temperature Range
  • Wide range DC power input

Compact Box PCs for space constrained applications

These small sized fanless embedded computers are ideal for demanding industrial environments where space is limited. Available with medium to high end processors options Compact Box PCs provide all the functionality of Expandable Models except for the expansion slots.

Ultra-slim Box PCs for embedded control applications

Ultra-slim Box PCs are less than 50mm high and are ideal for adding computing power to existing equipment. Some models are so small that they can be held in the palm of your hand. Others provide VESA mounting holes allowing the computer to be mounted behind a monitor converting it into a high performance Panel PC. While their small size limits the number of I/O connections, Ultra-slim Box PCs feature:

  • Fanless operation
  • Energy efficient processors
  • Multiple COM ports, USB ports, Ethernet Ports, WiFi and Video outputs
  • High vibration and shock protection
  • Low power consumption

In addition, Interworld Electronics offers special purpose industrial PCs such as fully sealed stainless steel units, Rail Certified fanless PCs and in-vehicle based PCs.
