Fanless panel PCs for machine builders and factory automation
Advantech’s PPC-4211W and PPC-4151W panel PCs are designed for machine builders and demanding factory automation environments. These 15.6-in.and 21.5 in. wide screen panel PCs come with the Intel 4th Generation Core i processor. It also has a projected capacitive touch (PCT) screen, a large number of IO ports, and multiple expansion slots for increased functionality.
In the PPC-4211W, with extra chassis space, allows users to add two 2.5-in. HDDs which can be used as RAID 0/1 configurations.
Both models can also be used with a voltage range of 9-32 V dc and have 1 kV dc isolation protection on the RS422/RS485 to ensure that, no matter the circumstances, these panel PCs will continue working and data will be protected.
They come with a standard PCI, PCIex1 (PPC-4211W supports PCIex4) or a mini-PCIe expansion slot which can be used to connect client’s fieldbus cards without the need to change their existing hardware.
The PPC-4151W has an IP65 compliant Aluminum die-cast front panel and PPC-4211W has an IP65 compliant Magnesium alloy die-cast front panel. Both models house a TFT LCD PCT screen glass display which offers better protection than traditional resistive touch panels. To further aid usage, the models feature a widescreen display with a ratio of 16:9, providing 40% more screen area than 4:3 displays. This design supports multitouch to allow a more intuitive operation and enhance flexibility for software designers and better safety control.
For ease of use and added functionality and compatibility, they come with a wide range of IO ports including: dual GbE LAN, five serial ports, five USB 3.0 ports (one of which is on the side for easy access).
