Backplane Systems Technology is pleased to introduce APLEX’s ARCHMI Series of Fanless Panel PCs.
The ARCHMI Series is a set of fanless computers constructed with aluminium and a die-cast back cover design for efficient heat dissipation. It has a flat bezel design that allows the user to perform gestures in the screen corner with zero obstacles. Depending on the floor plan and space arrangement, ARCHMI PCs are both VESA and Panel mountable. When panel mounted, the front panel is IP65 certified waterproof and IP69K compliant, extending its application even further towards the frontier of the automation industry.
The SATA cable has been completely eliminated; the solid state hard drive (SSD) is directly connected to the board, with easy access from the back cover to support quick hard drive swaps. Not restricted to its existing I/O configuration, it can make use of an expansion board to support extra slots and ports such as USB, Serial Ports, Mini PCIE slots, and even SIM card slots. As a result, there is more PLC capacity per system and fewer systems required to be deployed in the field. The options and sizes are extremely flexible depending on individual requirements: from 7″ to 21.5″; from a low power consumption Cedarview/Baytrail chipset to a high performance Haswell chipset; the ARCHMI Series is being used in a wide range of IoT applications worldwide.
At least one high school in Taiwan is using the ARCHMI-810P to support the start-up of a new “smart school”. As a perfect hardware HMI controller, it helps the school check and measure energy consumption by air conditioners; based on the weather conditions, the ARCHMI-810P uses predictive analytics to adjust energy usage to reduce carbon emissions and increase eco-efficiency. The ARCHMI-810P I/O support includes 2x USB3.0, 2x COM port, 2x LAN port, extra functionalities via TB-528 series expansion cards, and wireless 4G LTE/GPS/BT module smart battery UPS.
