PanelPCs for Production Monitoring
For one of our customers active in the food industry, we provided a solution of 25 panelPCs for their MES application (MES=Manufacturing execution system of a continual character). The panelPC systems are Full ip65 which means they are easily cleanable. In addition, we built in an RFID scanner so the units can only be used by authorized users with an RFID tag.
19” Racks for Automatic Production Monitoring
We created a 2U 19”rack for a large multinational that we can deliver in identical form for a long period. This client uses the system as part of a production line system for the automated testing of end products. It was important for this system that all the I/O was located on the front side of the system.
Custom 1u industrial PC with 5 year identical hardware
We received a request from a potential customer to provide them a small high performance system with long term availability. This client mainly develops measurement systems for functional diagnostics of left/right- heart catheterization. The systems are fully integrated with a documentation and reporting system and interface with all X-ray manufacturers.
We introduced to them our Infinicore IPC system. This 1U system is equipped with a power full baseboard PWF controlled small fans and there is also space for an additional add on card. When we were in contact with the customer they would like to have small modifications to this system like removable dust filters and company logo and color.
Once approved by the customer and the certification agency’s this system will be rolled out in batches of 25 pieces up to 150 systems a year. Beside this system we also supply accessories like KVM switches, keyboards and displays.
19 inch Racks
Equipment is often installed in 19” cabinets which is why many of our systems are 19” wide.
Small Form Factor
It is important to use small form factors like Mini-ITX or COM for places where there is not much space.
Reasons of maintenance and durability mean that fanless systems are a necessity.
