Panel PC has I/O options and security for mil-COTS and IIoT applications

Claimed to be the only panel PC available today to provide PC/104-Plus expansion while harnessing the power of the Intel Atom E3845 CPU and offering up to 8Gbit DDR3L of system memory, the PPC-12-413 single board computer (SBC) is available from Winsystems.

In addition to the PC/104-Plus expansion, the Intel Atom E3845 CPU and DDR3L system memory, it has an Intel Gen7 Graphics Driver and control for a 12.1-inch TN LCD panel with resistive touchscreen.

This is the fourth generation of Winsystems 12-inch open-frame panel PC and is designed as a ready upgrade path for current customers while supporting long-term availability for new designs, commented technical sales director, George T. Hilliard. “Our new PPC3-12-413 panel PC enables designers of Mil/COTS and industrial control solutions to leverage extensive PC/104-Plus expansion capabilities without adding heating or cooling systems to their enclosures,” he explained. “It also negates the need for external or connected devices to provide connectivity to GPIO, serial or USB devices.”

The PPC3-12-413 maintains the same 12 x 8.6 x 1.90 inch (311.2 x 218.5 x 48.2mm) dimensions as earlier Winsystems’ 12-inch panel PCs and operates at temperatures ranging from -10 to +70 degrees C without having to attach an external heat sink or fan. It can perform in environmental conditions of -30 to +85 degrees C when the touchscreen is not being used.

The design includes four multi-protocol serial ports supporting RS-232/422/485 interfaces, 48 GPIO lines with Event Sense, dual gigabit Ethernet controllers, seven USB 2.0 ports and a line printer terminal (LPT) port. Expansion options include PC/104-Plus, dual MiniCard sockets and one shared mSATA socket. The PPC3-12-413 requires +5V DC input power.

The Intel Atom E3800 processor and generous system memory ensures that the open frame panel PC is equipped to deliver sustained, highly reliable performance and enable the long product life cycles critically important for industrial IoT (IIoT) and Mil/COTS applications, Hilliard added. “From its industrial touch screen LCD panel to I/O devices, it is specifically designed and tested to withstand temperature extremes and challenging environments while providing abundant power for Windows 10 IoT Enterprise and Linux operating systems,” he continued.

Winsystems’ SBCs and rugged embedded systems are backed by a customer service and responsive technical support from knowledgeable application engineers.

Founded in 1982, Winsystems designs and manufactures embedded SBCs, I/O modules, panel PCs and industrial Ethernet switches that operate over extended temperatures. The reliable products are engineered for demanding requirements and harsh environments, including industrial IoT, industrial automation/control, transportation management, energy management, Mil/COTS, medical, digital signage and communications applications. Winsystems is certified to ISO 9001:2015.
