Embedded Computer for Factory Robots and Vehicles

Nexcom has expanded its range of fanless embedded systems with the launch of the NISE 2100A Series, designed for a host of industrial computing applications within extreme environmental conditions. Housed in a rugged aluminium chassis, NISE 2100A has been designed to operate in temperatures of between -20 to 70C. This feature enables NISE 2100A to function in the severe environmental conditions usually associated with factory automation, industrial automation or transportation.

It incorporates a 1.8GHz Intel Atom D525 Dual Core processor with ICH8M PCH chipset. This advanced Intel-based technology boasts 50 per cent better performance than the previous generation of Atom N270 CPU, with only a small increase in power consumption. Using onboard DDR3 memory, NISE 2100A is capable of fulfilling mainstream market requirements for increased performance with lower system configuration costs.

The NISE 2100A is suitable for a wide variety of diverse applications and therefore is equipped with a multitude of I/O interfaces including Dual LAN, four RS-232 COM ports, two RS232/ 422/ 485 COM ports with 2.5 KV isolation protection, four USB 2.0, one VGA and GPIO port. In addition, for applications which require PCI expansion, a variant known as NISE 2110A is also available.

With a wide range of DC inputs, from 9 to 36V, as well as a built-in SIM-card holder and mini-PCIe socket, NISE 2100A series is suitable not only for industrial and factory automation but also for wireless communication, in-vehicle computer applications, transportation control systems, such as Kiosk, self-service machine and ticket machine.
