Expandable Industrial Panel PC Series for Industry 4.0 & IoT Applications
The PCA80XXX series is an expandable panel PC series powered by the Intel® Core i3-6100TE 2.7GHz processor. With features such as touch screen and rich I/O connectors, the PCA80XXX series can be customized to fit specific industry requirements and supports smart factory solutions. The PCs come in various LCD display sizes ranging from 15" to 21.5" and feature a resistive type touch screen monitor. There is also an option for a projected capacitive type touch screen monitor for industries that require multi-touch features or higher touch sensitivity and transparency rates. For outdoor applications, PCA80XXX supports the option for a 1000-nit high brightness display and optical bonding. The system supports two 206-pin SO-DIMM memory of up to 32GB DDR4 2133MHz and two 2.5" SATA SSD storage bays. PCA80XXX also incorporates two PCIe expansion slots (1 x PCIe x 1 + 1 x PCIe x 16 slots) that allows users to connect various devices and components to the PC. The PCA80XXX series is a reliable solution with high computing abilities and flexible configurations fit for a wide range of applications. With the ability to take control of factory automation management, PCA80XXX establishes and automates efficient, cost-effective processes and workflow with maximum flexibility and increased productivity.
How to Identify PCI Express VS PCI Expansion Slots?
PCI, also known as Peripheral Component Interconnect, is a form of internal data bus for connecting or injecting peripheral devices into a computer. PCI is a general-purpose connection standard designed to support multiple devices of various kinds, including graphics hardware, audio hardware, network hardware, and such. PCIe, PCI Express, introduced lately as a standard for connecting devices to computers. The software is compatible with PCI but has greater potential bandwidth and larger flexibility than PCI. PCIe is used for internal Wi-Fi cards, 10 Gigabit Ethernet cards, hard drives, and Solid State Drives (SSDs).
What is an IP Rating?
IP ratings are standards for electrical enclosures defined by the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission). The rating refers to the degree of protection against water and dust provided by a computer's enclosure. The IP rating is expressed as a two-digit number (Example: IP-66). The first number designates protection from solids, while the second number designates protection from liquids. An IP66 rated enclosure means the computer is dust tight and protected against powerful water jets and heavy seas.
