Think of an IPC (Industrial PC) in terms of your desktop computer: many of its technical characteristics and features are basically the same: microprocessor & RAM type. storage media, interface ports, performance, etc. However, an Industrial PC is a ruggedized system, fit for use on the shop floor.

We are exclusive manufacturers of A-grade touch screen (capacitive) Industrial grade PCs

This PCs can be tailor-made as per the requirement of the customer.

They are high performance PCs designed to work in varied industrial environment.

The main advantage of IPC PC is that all the components are of Industrial grade.
The Life of Industrial components is far longer than commercial components.

Comparision Between Industrial Pc And Commercial Pc
  Touch Screen Industrial Commercial Desk Top - Pc
Can withstand temperatures upto 70degree  will not function properly over 35 degree
Not effected by dust, chemicals in the environment will face often break down in such conditions
Not effected by humidity Power supply will frequently fail in humid env.
Not effected by vibrations or power surge Hard disk will fail due to vibrations and power Supply will fail too due to power surges.
Life of minimum 10 to 12 years  Life not more than 5 years.
All provisions available for future up gradation Up gradation  very limited
Expandable due to various slot/port options available Limited   slot/port options
Almost wireless (only power cable) Totally Wired and bulky
Energy consume only 35 w with LCD Minimum 115 W with LCD
Touch screen and all-in-one Physical Keyboard & Mouse
Can be wall-mounted Not possible
Light weight and occupies less space Bulky & Required more space

 

Embedded Fan less Technology, so it is more versatile to use in any dusty or hazardous conditions. It contains all industrial category components inside so it can sustain more with environmental conditions. It contains Industrial Flash, and so no mechanical moving parts inside, gives more stability.

It comes with Wireless Connectivity option.
USB ports can be managed without any antivirus, USB can be used in read only mode for USB Storage also. Embedded operating system comes with Enhanced Write Filter, with security option so nothing can be changed once EWF is Enabled. (it freeze the OS & all Application)

 

What distinguishes a 'Commercial' Pc from an Industrial Pc ?

 

First of all, industrial computers are especially designed to withstand harsh shop-floor
environments (extremes of temperature, dust, humidity, vibration, power surges) that
commercial PCs are not designed for. Before choosing a ‘PC’ for your application, you should always take into account the following factors:

  • Temperature: appropriately deployed, industrial computers can be rated to work up to 70°C and over, while commercial PCs should stay well below the 40°C temperature range.
  • Dust: cooling fans, when external to the chassis, are usually provided with special filters to keep out dust and other similar contaminants. On systems provided with positive air pressure flow within the chassis, you also obtain:
  • Consistently clean air flow inside the chassis
  • Direct cooling of magnetic media (floppy disk, hard disk, CDROM), system components and power supply
  • Shock/Vibration: disk drives can be mounted on shock absorbers, providing mechanical isolation and cushioning.
  • Humidity: Machine tool environments (grinding machines, lathes, machining centers, transfer lines, etc.) are often affected by liquid contaminants/coolants, while very often the plant itself may reach high relative humidity values, in which a commercial PC cannot possibly survive.
  • Power supply: Spikes, surges, transients and noise on AC power sources are very common on the factory floor. Computers must always be supplied with clean, stabilized DC voltages under (almost) any condition.
  • EMI: proper grounding, shielding and electrical design assure proper isolation and
    compliance to internationally recognized electrical standards.
  • IP/NEMA protection
  • Expandability & longevity: an IPC is often more expandable (i.e. in terms of slots) than normal PCs, including support for legacy applications that need to work (and be maintained) seamlessly for 5 or even 10 and more years, long after “off-the-shelf” commercial components and boards are no longer available. In terms of upgrading the technology or simply thanks to the availability of spare parts, this basically represents a much lower cost of ownership in comparison to an office PC, compensating the initial higher investment for an IPC.
  • easier access to the inside for servicing (less downtime)
  • depending on the model, an IPC can be panel or rack-mounted (19”), or mounted on a swivel-arm support, providing flexible deployment for any physical environment

 

What is the difference between an industrial cpu card and an off the- Shelf commercial motherboard?

 

Industrial CPU cards are designed to survive the harsh shop floor environment, where extremes of temperature, vibration and electrical noise could easily damage 'normal' System components. Commercial motherboards are not designed for such Environments. Motherboards come cheap, but you (don't) get what you (don't) pay for:

  • Poor grounding, shielding, isolation. Poorly designed motherboards do not provide an adequate multi-layer design for effective signal routing, ground and power plane separation for EMI/RFI compliance. What are we really measuring here ?
  • Low reliability due to cheap
  • Electronic components (e.g.: using normal electrolytic capacitors, the heat inside the chassis will cause the electrolyte to dry up over time. This in turn may cause shorts, erratic system behavior and so on)
  • Mechanical components (e.g. connectors with a short insertion life or improperly coated pins, therefore subject to poor electrical continuity over time).

 

As mentioned previously, industrial CPU cards minimize system downtime (e.g. passive backplane cards all comply to standard mounting specs), and allow an easy upgrade path as newer technology becomes available.
