Contec Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Nishi-Yodogawa-ku, Osaka; President and CEO: Akira Ikari) has developed 24 models of industrial edge AI computers, the "DX-U2000 series" (hereinafter referred to as the new product), equipped with NVIDIA® Jetson Orin, and started sales from July 2023.
The new product is a fanless industrial computer suitable for AI inference processing, equipped with the NVIDIA Jetson Orin NX or Jetson Orin Nano module. Since the release of the entry model, the DX-U1100 series equipped with Jetson Nano, in 2020, we have been expanding our lineup with the mainstream DX-U1200 series equipped with Jetson Xavier NX. The new product is a higher-end model with significantly improved computational power. Orin NX has approximately 5 times* the deep learning performance of Xavier NX and is ideal for industrial edge AI computers for image inspection, predictive maintenance, as well as AGV/AMR integration.
It features Gigabit LAN x4, HDMI, USB x4, general-purpose I/O, serial ports, CAN ports, and RTC, achieving flexible installation and environmental durability. In addition, it comes with a large-capacity NVMe storage as standard, allowing for reliable use in practical applications.
The software environment includes pre-installed Ubuntu and the availability of JetPack SDK, like the developer kit, allowing the execution of applications created on the developer kit as is. The LTE models are equipped with an LTE SIM-free communication module, enabling 4G LTE communication.
Equipped with NVIDIA Jetson Orin NX or Jetson Orin Nano, this product can be used in fields requiring on-site AI inference processing, such as image inspection and predictive maintenance.
The standard-equipped high-capacity NVMe storage offers reliable operation with no need to worry about the capacity of the Jetson Xavier NX™ module's eMMC.
The lineup also includes products equipped with an LTE SIM-free communication module that complies with the Radio Act of Japan, enabling 4G LTE Cat. 4 communication.
This product is equipped with four Gigabit LAN ports. This makes it ideal for edge computing that alternates connections between different network layers such as between video acquisition from a camera and higher-order information system networks.
With the L-shaped mounting bracket (included as standard), the product can be installed on a wall or on the back of a VESA (100 mm) mount-compatible LCD monitor. It can also be mounted on a 35-mm DIN rail with a DIN rail adapter (included as standard).
This product achieves stable operation in a wide temperature range of -20 to +60°C (an airflow of 0.7m/s) and it can be used in the various environment.
