IP67-rated embedded system functions in harsh environments

A fanless embedded system with IP67-rated housing and M12 connectors for mission-critical environments have been introduced by Axiomtek.

The eBOX800-511-FL is a rugged embedded system, powered by the onboard 7th generation Intel Core i5-7300U and Celeron 3965U (formally codename: Kaby Lake). It is also supplied with one 204-pin DDR4-2133 SO-DIMM slot with system memory up to 16Gbyte.

The eBOX800-511-FL is designed for enabling to function in harsh environments with power protection, a wide operating temperature range from -30 to +60 degree C, operating shock tolerance up to 3G and nine to 36V wide range DC input.

The M12 lockable connectors and N-jack type waterproof antenna openings meet the performance needs for outdoor critical applications such as facility condition monitoring.

Axiomtek’s eBOX800-511-FL is reliable and stable, says the company, and can be installed on a rotary mining drill as a collision avoidance system which is in operation 24/7. The embedded system features fanless operation, wide operating temperatures and rugged housing to enhance the system stability for use in mining. The eBOX800-511-FL also can be installed in tank truck or heavy-duty industry as the surveillance application.

The eBOX800-511-FL has an IP67-rated extruded aluminum and heavy-duty steel case that offers complete protection from water submersion and harmful dust particles. The fanless embedded box computer’s expansion options include flexible I/O connectors and two PCI Express Mini Card slots.

For enhanced platform security the eBOX800-511-FL provides Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 1.2 support.

There is also a 2.5-inch SATA HDD and one optional mSATA, as well as a variety of screw-type M12 connectors including one Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) port, two USB 2.0 ports, two RS-232/422/485 ports, and one VGA port. There are also four n-Jack type antenna connectors which have a waterproof design.

The embedded system has passed the CE and FCC Class A certificate. Embedded OS support includes Windows 10 IoT and Linux.
