Open-frame PPC3-6.5-407 offers 6.5-inch TN LCD panel and continuous performance in -10C to +70C operating environments for Mil/COTS and industrial control applications
GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas – September 22, 2020 – Embedded computing innovator WINSYSTEMS today debuted a compact yet I/O-packed open-frame industrial panel PC for extreme operating temperatures. The rugged PPC3-6.5-407 single board computer is unique among panel PCs in providing PC/104-Plus expansion ability while delivering the graphic engine and control for its industrial temperature 6.5” LCD and touchscreen. It harnesses the processing power of the Intel® Atom™ E3845 CPU and up to 4G of DDR3L system memory. These capabilities are expanded with the Intel® Gen7 Graphics Driver, supporting multiple displays, and an Intel security engine.
“The fourth generation of WINSYSTEMS’ 6.5-inch open-frame panel PC product line provides a direct upgrade path for current customers while supporting long-term availability for new designs,” said WINSYSTEMS’ Technical Sales Director George T. Hilliard. “The new PPC3-6.5-407 panel PC allows designers of Mil/COTS and industrial control solutions to capitalize on robust PC/104-Plus and MiniCard expansion without the need for added heating or cooling systems in their enclosures. What’s more, it doesn’t require external devices for connectivity to GPIO, serial or USB devices.”
The PPC3-6.5-407 maintains the same dimensions as earlier WINSYSTEMS 6.5-Inch panel PC offerings without sacrificing features or flexibility. The industrial 6.5-inch TN LCD panel offers brightness up to 700 nits (cd/m2) and a resistive touch screen. It provides highly dependable, full operation in temperatures of -10C to +70C without having to attach an external heatsink or fan. What’s more, the unit can perform in environmental conditions of -30C to +85C when the touch screen is not being used.
The high-performance industrial I/O design includes four multiprotocol serial ports supporting RS-232/422/485 interfaces, 24 GPIO lines with Event Sense, 10/100/1000 Ethernet, two USB 2.0 ports and four serial ports. Expansion options include PC/104-Plus and a shared MiniPCle /mSATA socket. It requires +5 volts DC input power.
“With its Intel® Atom™ E3845 processor and 4 gigs of soldered-down system RAM, our small-scale open-frame panel PC is uniquely equipped to provide highly reliable performance while enabling the long product life cycles imperative for industrial control and Mil/COTS applications,” Hilliard added. “From its industrial resistive touch screen LCD panel to I/O devices, it is specifically designed and tested to withstand temperature extremes and challenging environments while providing sufficient power for most dedicated Windows 10 IoT Enterprise and Linux operating systems.”
