Industrial Fanless PC Box

The Industrial Fanless PC Box, EC70B-SU, is an embedded industrial PC. It is powered by 6th Gen Intel® Core™ CPU for increased computing frequencies and performance.

The compact embedded computer brings ultra-fast Rich I/O connectivity which supports up to two PoE LAN, two Giga LAN, six COM ports, and 6 USB 3.0, making it a perfect candidate for machine vision applications.

In addition, the system also features the latest, fast DDR4 memory and Mini PCIe and m.2 expansion slots for Wi-Fi/LTE/SATA modules and a whole barrage of other options including Ethernet connectivity.

Having no fans or rotating components, this embedded box PC has an operating temperature range of -20°C to 60°C.

These features make the EC70A-SU fanless embedded box PC ideal for compute-intensive applications and continuous operations in challenging environments.

COM Express Type 7

The Com Express Type 7, DV970, is an industrial motherboard based on Intel® Atom™ C3000 series server platform. The new COM Express module has 16 cores which offer high security yet low power consumption, and are used mainly to power IoT server applications.

The motherboard supports up to four 10-Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, Rich expansion as 16 PCIe lanes, and the function of Cloud Remote Monitoring Platform or BMC.

3. COM Express Type 7 features dual channel DDR4 sockets for error-correcting code memory.

It is best suited for automation, storage, and networking appliances including modular server designs, base stations for telecom carriers, service providers’ servers, and cloud servers.

The next generation of IoT and Industry 4.0 is already benefitting from the innovative COM Express Type 7.

Digital Signage Computer

Powered by the server processor Intel® Xeon®, the digital signage computer, OPS100-SH, is a media player with a wide range of multimedia solutions for compute-intensive digital signage (video or audio) and white-board markets such as interactive Augmented Reality (AR) and multi-display applications.

The digital signage computer features three display outputs with 4K resolution at refresh rate of 60Hz and full compliance with Open Pluggable Specification Plus (OPS) connectors – JAE TX25A and 2nd Connector – which provide supporting PCIe x4 signal expansion, triple displays (1 HDMI, 2 DP) and an optional power input.

This allows the OPS100-SH to maximize visual effects and imaging quality for its multi-display digital signage solutions.

Medical Computing System

DFI’s medical computing system, MD711-SU, is a high-performance fanless embedded box PC designed to work with medical equipment and all the demands that come with it.

The medical computing platform uses the 6th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor as its brain, and is built with industrial-grade components to ensure the entire unit is durable and reliable enough to run round the clock, throughout the year.

It is equipped with 4-KV isolated I/O ports (COM, USB, LAN), a PCIe expansion slot, and specialized heat dissipation technology for clean and silent operation.

The applications of the fanless medical PC include, but aren’t limited to, operating rooms, nursing carts, healthcare information systems and medical OEM equipment integration.

It has several certifications including CE, IEC, EN and ISO based merits.

Fanless Embedded System EC800-AL

The Fanless Embedded System EC800-AL is an industrial embedded PC which uses the Intel Atom® processor for maintaining a low power footprint, between 6 ~ 12 watts.

The fanless PC has an upgraded onboard LPDDR4 memory (Low Power DDR4 or mobile DDR4) that enables the accelerated exploration of complex data using its large internal fetch size and external transfer speed.

Although fanless, its thermal design provides sufficient heat dissipation for space-limited environments.

Due to the advanced I/O expandability options available, the fanless industrial PC is suited for a variety of embedded applications in Smart Factory, IoT networks, digital signage, etc.
