Perfect for Automotive Applications: Box PC for Wireless Communication

Designed for wireless applications and with its E1-compliant design, the robust BL70W box PC is ideal for, e. g. automotive applications in busses or construction vehicles.

BL70W - Rugged Box PC for Wireless Applications

BLUE BELL, Pa. August 2015 - The robust box PC BL70W was especially developed for wireless applications in mobile markets. Due to its compliance to the E-mark requirements it is well suited for automotive applications in busses, construction vehicles or agriculture machines.

  • Intel Core i7
  • 4 PCI Express Mini Card slots each with dual SIM for GSM (2G), UMTS (3G), LTE (4G), WLAN, 9 antenna cut-outs
  • GPS/GLONASS interface
  • 3 flexible slots for IBIS, RS232, RS422/485 or CAN
  • Up to 16 GB DDR3 DRAM soldered, ECC
  • -40 to +85°C operating temperature
  • Compliant to ISO 7637-2 (E-mark for automotive)

Reliable Communication in a Robust Housing

Despite its compact design it offers sufficient space for nine antenna slots in total as well as a multitude of application-specific I/O. Equipped with four PCI Express Mini Card slots controlling up to eight SIM cards and a GPS/GLONASS interface, the BL70W leaves nothing to be desired in terms of wireless communication.

Two Gigabit Ethernet via robust M12 connectors, five slots for serial I/O or CAN bus and two USB 2.0 make the BL70W complete.

The BL70W is designed for fanless operation in in the extended operating temperature range of -40 to +85°C. Thanks to firmly soldered components and conformal coating it resists the typical influences of automotive applications like shock and vibration or humidity. Its robust characteristics are conform to the requirements of  ISO 7637-2 (E-mark).

Hence it can be perfectly used as content or hotspot server, as diagnosis interface or as fleet management control as well as for passenger information systems and all vehicle to land communication.

The robust and conduction cooled box PC has been equipped with a powerful Intel Core i7-3517UE CPU running at 1.7 GHz. Be it one, two or four cores  -  due to the scalability within the Intel i7 family the customers can size the computing power to their individual requirements.

Thanks to the flexible box PC system the BL70W can easily be expanded with PCI Express Mini Cards or different I/O at any time, saving a lot of time and cost for the customer.
