MSC Technologies presents dust-protected Booksize PC with Intel Q170 chipsetStutensee, Germany, )
The robust dust-protected housing of the BookSize B1-Q170 is especially suited for harsh industrial environment. The replaceable fan cartridge facilitates maintenance of the computer.
To ensure a high reliability, the box PC is equipped with proven, high-quality key components. The BookSize is manufactured at MSC Technologies’ factory in Freiburg, which specializes in manufacturing small and large batches flexibly. On customer request, the modular B1-Q170 can be adapted quickly with optimized cost to special application requirements.
The Remote Diagnostic Tool ReDi 1 from MSC Technologies permanently monitors the state of all system-critical operating parameters. This allows possible failures of the robust industrial computer to be detected early – before the failure of individual components – in order to initiate appropriate rectification measures. The objective is to achieve high availability of the systems to eliminate computer downtimes and to support a predictive maintenance.
The BookSize B1-Q170 features numerous industrial interfaces like GbE LAN, USB 3.0, USB 2.0, Serial ATA, HD Audio, and the graphics interfaces DVI-D and 2 x DisplayPort (DP) V1.2. The computer can be equipped with a galvanically isolated GPIO and a CAN bus interface.
The PCI Express™ x16 slot allows the box PC to be expanded flexibly. In addition, one 3.5 inch exchangeable plug-in unit and optionally two removable SSDs/HDDs are present. The embedded system receives its power from an integrated 250 W AC 80 PLUS power supply.
