Courtesy: AdvantechAdvantech's IP65 certified industrial workstations, the AWS-8248 and AWS-8259, are designed for machine builders and factory automation and feature a 15 in." LED backlight display and slots with flexible configuration.

The LED backlit displays not only save energy but also allow for the better viewing of information and excellent clarity. The PICMG 1.3 slots offer expandability and a flexible configuration to support a PCI serial interface which can eliminate bottleneck caused when a PCI serial bus is used with the ISA bus. The membrane keyboard offers programmability to allow users to build systems that meet their exact requirements.

The AWS-8248V features 13 PICe/PCI/PICMG 1.3 slots and provides three card-cages and wing nut fasteners for add-on cards, CPU card, and power supply. The AWS-8248V also includes two 3.5 in." HDDs with mobile rack drive & DVD-ROM drive in back of chassis and onscreen display (OSD) operation keypad on the front panel. For further security in harsh environments, the AWS-8248V is coated in a hard anodic layer which prevents abrasion and corrosion and is also protected against vibrations of up to 1G.

The AWS-8259 has a detachable 15 in. 1024x768 display which provides easy access for maintenance. With just an 8U footprint, the AWS-8259 has seven PICe/PCI/PICMG 1.3 slots and its keypad, touch pad, and front panel are waterproof so it can be cleaned in rigorous environments.
