Overview / Features
This product is a fanless computer for embedded applications. It features an Intel Atom processor E3845 1.91GHz chipset. Thanks to a quad-core CPU, simultaneous stable high-speed processing for four applications is possible with four cores. This CPU also allows for computing power almost four times that of conventional products in addition to three times the graphics performance, a significant improvement. Moreover, power consumption has been significantly reduced, resulting in nearly double the power efficiency compared with the previous generation's architecture. This "resource-saving PC" helps you design more compact, energy efficient equipment to reduce running costs and promote energy efficiency.
It is equipped with extended interfaces such as DVI-I, 1000BASE-T, USB 3.0, USB 2.0, and serial interfaces, and it is also equipped with a single PCI bus slot. It adopts CFast card for the storage and is fanless, which demonstrate the totally spindleless design that simplifies the maintenance.
Embedded-type CPU have been adopted. The use of readily available parts ensures the ease of the use of the product. In addition, the use of Contec-customized BIOS allows support to be provided at the BIOS level.
Fanless design that reduces maintenance work
- This product's spindleless design eliminates the heat dissipating slit and CPU fan and adopts CFast card for the storage. It is free from dusts and foreign objects, and the use the parts that degrades over the years is avoided in most case, resulting in drastic alleviation of the maintenance burden.
Remote power management function to reduce operation tasks
- It supports system start-up externally via network (Wake On LAN) and modem (Power On by Ring). It encourages significant labor saving in operation.
Expansion slots to hold PCI bus boards
High definition supported DVI external display output
- This product has the up to 1920 x 1080 pixels DVI external display output as standard feature. A stand-alone two-display application which, for example, displays the screen on a big LCD TV separately from the main LCD, can be built. Also, with the accompanying analog RGB (15 pin HD-SUB) conversion adapter, connecting to an analog RGB display is supported.
CFast retention fitting and cable tie provided to avoid trouble caused by disconnected cable
- This product stays trouble-free, being equipped with CFast card retention metal and USB removal prevention fitting and cable tie for connectors with no locking mechanism, such as USB cable, and with hardware to properly mount and avoid falling out of CFast card.
Safety design required for embedded applications
Retention of CMOS data by EEPROM allows the system to start up even when the battery has run out. For Windows Embedded Standard installed model or Windows 10 IoT Enterprise LTSB 2016 installed model, it is possible to use the Write Filter*1 function of OS. It is designed for safety required for embedding purpose, for example, prohibiting unwanted writing to the CFast card with Write Filter function will relieve the concern about the writing limits to the CFast card and prevent an unintentional system alteration.
*1 Windows® Embedded Standard contains EWF (Enhanced Write Filter) function, and Windows 10 IoT Enterprise LTSB 2016 contains UWF(Unified Write Filter) function. They redirect writing data into such as RAM, which stops writing in the actual disk and data can be protected.
