Low-power, fanless computer in rugged enclosure


Embedded Control

WIN Enterprises’ compact computer comes in an industrial-grade enclosure measuring 12.3 x 5.5 x 2.6 in. (W x D x H).

WIN Enterprises Inc ., a designer and manufacturer of embedded controllers and platforms for OEMs, has announced an enclosed computer designed for harsh embedded environments. Fanless PL-06058 offers silent operation where ambient noise is unwanted. Internal heat pipes conduct heat to the “aggressive heat-sink design of the rugged aluminum enclosure,” according to the company. With its Intel ULV Pentium processor, power requirement is only 34 W.

PL-06058 is an enclosed version of WIN’s IP-06058 single-board computer (SBC). It supports a CompactFlash socket, Mini-PCI slot, and up to 1 GB of DDR RAM. Other features include one 10/100 Ethernet port, four serial ports, one parallel port, three USB 2.0 ports, an IDE interface, and a FDD interface.

PL-06058 is available as a commercial, off-the-shelf (COTS) controller or it can serve as the basis for new OEM designs. Target markets are industrial automation, medical, scientific, military, and aerospace applications.
