Courtesy: KontronKontron has expanded the KBox IPC series, which are scalable and designed for industrial control applications. The additions to the KBox series can be upgraded with industrial I/Os, Fieldbus, and Industrial Ethernet interfaces as needed.

The KBox C-101-0 features no PCIe slots at the front and offers an internal SATA port for HDD/SSD, two internal mSATA slots and three mini PCIe slots. Moreover, like all KBox C-101 versions, the system has three IEEE1588 Gbit Ethernet ports, two USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, a DisplayPort, an RS232 interface and an SDCard slot. 

The KBox C-100 features pre-integrated 128 kB NVRAM supports soft PLC and hypervisor technologies. The system is scalable from Intel Celeron up to Intel Core i7 CPUs of the third generation and is suitable for deployment as real-time control and virtualization computer. KBox C-100 is equipped with four IEEE1588-compliant Gbit Ethernet interfaces, seven USB 2.0 ports, one RS232 port, one DVI and one PCIe x1 extension slot for Fieldbus and Industrial Ethernet interfaces.

The KBox A-101, which is designed for cost-sensitive automation and industry computing tasks, has a maintenance-free design and a robust, fast SSD. The fanless box PC with the dual-core Intel Atom CPU D2550 comes with the standard interfaces DisplayPort, two Gbit Ethernet ports, two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports and one RS232 port. 

Designed for IoT tasks, the KBox A-201 has a maintenance-free design and optional wireless interfaces. The fanless box PC with Intel Atom CPU E3845 comes with the standard interfaces HDMI, two Gbit Ethernet ports, two USB 2.0 ports and three serial ports. Despite the compact footprint, custom interface adjustments are possible via the integrated mini-PCIe slot.
