IPCs (Industrial Personal Computers) are different from regular PCs because of its environmental characteristics. These computers have shock absorption, moisture resistance, dust/water resistance, a wide range of working temperatures, anti-electromagnetic interferences, and the ease of access for expansion slots. In other words, the IPC achieves industrial requirements for long term reliability and stability control platforms.  Some examples of an IPC include a CNC controller and PC-based controller.

The industrial Computer is poised to be the next interface between humans and machines. As computer technology continues to advance, the IPC becomes more than just a one-dimensional computer.  It can now handle open PC characteristics and utilizes a colored touch LCD displays. Whether used in industrial automation control, traffic control, environmental control applications the IPC is the best platform for a variety of any industrial applications.

Features of an IPC:

Industrial Computer

  • Designed for control platforms to operate in rigorous and harsh environments.
  • Rugged construction that utilizes heavier metal.
  • Enhanced environmental protection -
    Dust and waterproof / Shock and vibration / higher working humidity value.
  • EMC shielding and gasket compliance specified by international electrical standards.
  • Supports wide working temperature ranges.
  •  Power input with over-voltage and over-current protection.
    IP/NEMA rated enclosure and front bezel.
  • PC architecture takes full advantage of a standard PC’s compatibility and its environments operating system and programs.
  • Long term product life and higher MTBF operation for a stability and reliability function.
  • Expandable through PCI/PCI-Express slots, PC-104 socket, Mini PCI and more
  • A full feature of interface ports, such as RS-232, 485 and digital I/O for PLC program controls.
  • Wide variety of mounting solutions, providing flexible deployment for any physical environment.

Form Factor of IPC:
The primary use for IPC automation control units are to collect and transfer data. With newer and newer technology innovations, the IPC has unlimited use for so many different applications. HMI (Human Machine Interface), security appliance and intelligent displays are just some industries that currently use them.
