Palmsized box PC is fanless
Compact and fanless, the Kube-2100 PC meets extended EMI and EMS requirements for use in demanding applications, says Portwell.
The Kube-2100 features the latest 14nm Intel Atom N3350 processor (codenamed Apollo Lake). It is compact in design, measuring 95 x 97.4 x 356mm and has low power consumption. According to Portwell, the high-performance computing and powerful graphics engine make the Kube-2100 particularly well-suited to harsh industrial automation applications, as well as in factory automation and as an IoT gateway.
The Intel Atom processor N3350 has 2Gbyte (DDR4 2400) memory. The KUBE-2100 benefits from about 30 per cent more computing power and 45 per cent more graphics performance compared to the previous generation and offers the powerful Intel Gen9 graphics with up to 18 execution units. It also allows the connection of 4k displays via display port.
For local data acquisition, the Kube-2100 offers industrial interfaces such as two Gbit industrial Ethernet (Intel i210) and two USB 3.0 ports. The M.2 Key-E, 2230 for wi-fi and Key-B 2242 for memory, complete the storage and expansion options.
The fanless Kube-2100 operates with a thermal design power (TDP) below 10W and supports 12 to 30V DC ±20 per cent power consumption for demanding applications.
For use in harsh environments, the Kube-2100 meets the heavy-industry requirements of EN55022 and EN55032 (EMI) and the EMS standards IEC 61000-4-2, 4-4, 4-5, 4-6, and 4- 8, which contain extended RS, EFT and CS criteria compared to the general industry standard. This makes the Kube-2100 suitable for applications such as plant networking, process monitoring, environmental management and process visualisation.
