Industrial Panel PCs are designed to be used in challenging environments such as factories and production facilities; They are preferred for production data collection, process analysis and control, operator panel applications, machine and process automation applications.
The earliest use of industrial computers was in the factory production process. The control and monitoring of instruments and machinery was limited to industrial automation card systems, and its use was automation equipment. The barrier to entry for industrial computers is high. Large factories are reluctant to produce products that cannot achieve economies of scale, while small factories cannot easily enter due to a lack of funds. Most of the products are tailor-made according to customer needs.
Micro ATX maintains the position of the peripheral interface on the backplane of the ATX standard motherboard and is compatible with ATX. The Micro ATX motherboard reduces the number of expansion slots to 3-4, and the number of DIMM slots to 2-3, which reduces the width of the motherboard from the horizontal direction, and its total area is reduced by about 0.92 square inches, which is more compact than the ATX standard motherboard structure.
In the field of laser cutting, unlike other industrial automation products, the industrial panel PC, when deploying its relevant production actions, requires not only a generous and beautiful appearance, but also requires the product itself to be able to have multi-line observation and realize multi-unit control, and moreover needs to be used in harsh environments.
Typical motherboards are very similar in overall functionality, which provides a platform for processing and connectivity. Industrial motherboards come in different shapes, sizes and functions, making them easy to differentiate. Another attribute that helps differentiate different types of motherboards is to look at their reliability, durability and longevity. Advances in IoT solutions and the shift of computing power from the cloud to the edge require manufacturers to create industrial motherboards that can withstand the challenges of deployment.
