Nexcom has revamped its industrial panel PCs with the IPPC A1770 series to embrace the advent of precision manufacturing. Targeted at advanced machine control some of its features include a fanless design, HD graphics, touch technologies and several I/O interfaces.
With overall performance boosts and flexible configurations, the IPPC A1770 series helps machine builders with diverse machine control and Human Machine Interface (HMI) offerings while keeping the appearance and design unified.
The fanless IPPC A1770 series is designed for advanced machine control with 3D-intensive HMI applications used in heavy industries.
Built with a choice of Intel® Core™ i5-4590T (3.0GHz, 6M Cache), i3-4350T (3.1GHz, 4M Cache), Pentium® G3320TE (2.3GHz, 3M Cache), or Celeron® G1820TE (2.2GHz, 2M Cache) processor, the IPPC A1770 panel PCs are packed with computing power and exceptional 2D and 3D rendering capabilities.
On industrial machines, the IPPC A1770 series can be programmed to execute look-ahead, adaptive speed algorithms, and other advanced machine control for multi-axis, high-speed, high-accuracy machining. As for machine HMIs, the series can run 3D machining animations, toolpath simulations, and work orders on its 4:3 17-inch touchscreen, helping operators monitor machining status.
The IPPC A1770 series supports expansion with PCI, PCIe, and mini-PCIe options. For instance, two mini-PCIe slots are provided along with a wide selection of add-on modules, which includes fieldbus modules for industrial automation control, Wi-Fi/3G/LTE modules for internet connection, fast-write NVRAM modules for emergency data storage, mSATA modules for storage expansion, and I/O modules for extra LAN and COM connectivity.
Additionally, a waterproof front USB is meant to facilitate machine file upload on site and can be disabled after a file transfer to avoid unauthorized copying and virus infection, while an internal USB is intended for software license dongles and to provide theft protection.
This rugged IPPC is designed for harsh operating environments, encased in a metal housing and option of a projected captive (P-cap) or resistive touch panel within the IP66-compliant aluminium front bezel.
