New Product Release: 30 mm Thickness Embedded BX-T210 Box Computer with Power Failure Protection System for Eliminating OS Shutdowns
The information included in this press release is current as of the publication date. The sales conditions, price, and specifications may be changed without notice.
Contec Co., Ltd. has developed the BX-T210, 30 mm thick A5-sized fanless embedded PCs with a Power Failure Protection function for operation even in the event of a power failure, eliminating the need to shut down the OS. Contec began taking orders for the new product on February 2, 2021.
BOX Computer BX-T210
Featuring a high-performance quad-core CPU, these embedded computers are compact at just 30 mm thick and about the size of an A5 piece of paper with an operating temperature range of −20 to 70°C*1. The superior 5G vibration resistance and 100G impact resistance means the BX-T210 can be used as controllers or operation terminals for industrial equipment in a variety of applications requiring environmental resistance.
The product also conforms to CE marking, FCC, VCCI, CCC*2, and UL*2 export and safety standards for separate export as maintenance devices.
With conventional Windows systems, a shutdown process is required to safely turn off the power, and an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) or a separate power supply system is required for applications where a main power switch is used to turn on/off the entire system. The Power Failure Protection system of this new product protects data and prohibits writing to storage in the event of a power failure so that the power can be turned off safely even without performing a shutdown process.
In addition to TPM2.0, secure boot, and other latest security features, the BX-T210 also features original Contec functions such as self-diagnosis and USB boot protection, ensuring the superior stability and security required for industrial applications.
- Extremely compact space-saving PC with an A5 paper installation area
The space-saving design (30.3 x 182 x 155 mm (H x W x D)) of the BX-T210 allows for installation in an area roughly the size of an A5 paper with a clearance of only 50mm.
- Capable of handling ambient temperatures of −20 to 70°C*1 with 5G vibration resistance and 100G impact resistance
The BX-T210 operates stably over a wide range of temperatures (−20 to 70°C*1). Meanwhile, the 5G vibration resistance and 100G impact resistance allows for integration in various mobile devices.
- Power Failure Protection system for reliable operation with no OS shutdown required
The Power Failure Protection function protects data and prohibits writing to storage in the event of a power failure. When used together with the Windows IoT Enterprise lockdown (disk write suppression) feature, power can be safely turned off even without performing a shutdown process. This also helps prevent corruption of the file system and data due to sudden power loss.
- Reductions in running costs and energy usage
The BX-T210 uses the x5-E3940 high-performance quad-core Intel Atom processor to achieve low power consumption while still providing sufficient performance.
- Rich variety of interfaces for easy connection to various peripheral devices
In addition to one DisplayPort, four USB3.2 Gen 1 ports, two USB2.0 ports, and two LAN ports, the BX-T210 also includes an analog RGB port and two RS-232C ports (with RS-422A/485 switching in one port). A slot for easily replaceable CFast cards is also available for writing logs and other collected data. Wireless LAN and Bluetooth connections are also possible with the wireless model (BX-T210R).
