DIN rail, fanless in-vehicle PC protects vehicle battery

Designed for in-vehicle gateway applications, the UST210-83K-FL is the latest in-vehicle box PC from Axiomtek.

It is powered by the Intel Atom x5-E3940 processor (codenamed Apollo Lake-I) and features a smart ignition function for power on/off scheduling to protect vehicle battery from unstable voltages.

The UST210-83K-FL complies with ISO 7637-2 and can endure vibration of up to 3G rms, for stable and reliable operation in challenging environments, says Axiomtek. The ruggedised in-vehicle embedded system has front-accessible I/O ports for easy access and maintenance. The UST210-83K-FL is designed for in-vehicle applications such as vehicle controls, fleet monitoring, management system, and in-vehicle edge computing.

The in-vehicle box PC supports a 9.0 to 36V DC wide voltage input and is intended for use as an IoT gateway for in-vehicle applications in shuttle buses, police cars, ambulances or heavy-duty lorries. It can operate across a wide temperature range of -40 to +70 degrees C. It also meets MIL-STD-810G shock and vibration resistance certifications, which ensures operation when travelling on roads which are in a poor condition.

The UST210-83K-FL has one DDR3L-1866 SO-DIMM slot with a maximum of 8Gbyte of system memory. For flexible configuration and expansion, there are two COM ports or one COM port and one CANBus 2.0 A/B port supporting SocketCAN, one HDMI port, four RJ-45 Gigabit PoE ports or four RJ-45 Gigabit LAN ports (with Intel Ethernet Controller I211-AT), two USB 3.0 ports, one DB9 8-bit programmable DIO port and four antenna openings. There is also one full-size PCI Express Mini Card slot (USB interface with SIM socket) and one half-size PCI Express Mini Card slot (mSATA/USB interface). A half-size mSATA occupied with its PCI Express Mini Card slot and an internal 2.5-inch SATA drive are available for additional storage.

The IoT gateway is compatible with Windows 10 and supports Axiomtek’s AXView software to fulfill the requirement of remote monitoring. There is also a Trusted Platform Module 2.0 (TPM 2.0) to ensure critical information security. The PC can be DIN rail or wall-mounted for installation in space constrained control cabinets.
