WINSYSTEMS Debuts Panel PC for Mil/COTS and Industrial IoT Applications

Open-frame PPC3-12-413 delivers connectivity and continuous performance in -10C to +70C environments with PC/104-Plus and Mini-PCIe expansion.

WINSYSTEMS unveiled an I/O-rich open-frame industrial panel PC for extreme operating temperatures. The rugged PPC-12-413 single board computer is ideal among panel PCs in providing PC/104-Plus expansion ability while harnessing the power of the Intel Atom E3845 CPU and offering up to 8G DDR3L of system memory. These capabilities are coupled with the Intel Gen7 Graphics Driver and control for a 12.1-inch TN LCD panel with resistive touch screen.

The PPC3-12-413 maintains the same 12" x 8.6" x 1.90" (31.12 cm x 21.85 cm x 4.82 cm) dimensions as earlier WINSYSTEMS 12" panel PC offerings. It provides dependable, full operation in temperatures of -10C to +70C without having to attach an external heatsink or fan. Furthermore, the unit can perform in environmental conditions of -30C to +85C when the touch screen is not being used.

The design includes four multiprotocol serial ports supporting RS-232/422/485 interfaces, 48 GPIO lines with Event Sense, dual gigabit Ethernet controllers, seven USB 2.0 ports, and an LPT port. Expansion options span PC/104-Plus, dual MiniCard sockets and one shared mSATA socket. It requires +5 volts DC input power.
