Modular Industrial PC with Cost-Effective Customization
BLUE BELL, Pa. February 2014 – MEN Micro Inc., a world-renowned provider of embedded computing and I/O solutions for mission-critical industrial, mobile and harsh environment applications, has introduced a new family of cost-effective modular, industrial PCs with a short time-to-market.
First in the series, the MH70I is configurable with a wide selection of standard hardware, software and accessories to provide cost-effective customization for a wide range of industrial automation and in-vehicle applications.
The new industrial PC combines scalable high-performance computing and graphics functions as well as reliable system management with pre-installed software support for Windows Embedded Standard 7. This enables an exceptionally fast time-to-market for a custom designed solution, while providing a reliable means of ensuring long-term use.
The MH70I owes its modularity to the combination of cards that make up the heart of the unit. In addition to the system slot, the MH70I includes two each of CompactPCI and CompactPCI Serial peripheral slots and two PCI or PCI Express slots. Two PSU slots supporting AC, DC and UPS, ensure redundant, reliable operation.
The unit’s compact half 19" rack size allows two systems to be placed on one rack side by side. The MH70I can be either rack- or wall-mounted with natural convection cooling or with an added fan tray at the bottom of the system, depending on the mounting position.
The standard configuration of the MH70I comes with MEN Micro’s F22P CompactPCI PlusIO SBC using an Intel Core i7 or Celeron processor with one VGA interface, two USB ports and two Gigabit Ethernet interfaces on the front. It also includes up to 16 GB of DDR3 DRAM with ECC.
Functionality is virtually limitless thanks to the various peripheral boards available for the new MH70I, including analog or binary I/O via M-Modules, fieldbus functions, SATA hard disks or wireless functions as well as Ethernet interface boards or Ethernet switches. A SATA RAID with up to four HDD shuttles can be built using the CompactPCI Serial slots.
- Up to nine configurable slots in one system
- Pre-defined software for rapid development
- Half 19" rack size with cooling by natural convection or fan tray
- Operating temperature: 0°C to +50°C
- Up to 16 GB soldered DDR3 DRAM with ECC
- Up to four SATA hard disks for RAID
