Know All About The Industrial PC
The x86 PC-based computing platform, which is used for industrial applications, is given the name of “industrial PC”. In comparison to the microprocessor-based and RISC-based computer platform, the industrial PC provides a number of benefits on the development with PC-based hardware and software and on the cost of the systems.
The industrial PC or the industrial single board computers are primarily formulated for performing a single task; the desktop computers are, however, for multitasking. An industrial PC is used in the industrial procedures like those that have been specifically designed for restraining the many industrial factors, like vibrations, shocks, humidity, radio frequency interference, electromagnetic interference, flash, dust and mist.
The features of the industrial PC offer compatibility, reliability, long-term supply and expandability; these features are different from the consumer PCs. You will find that an industrial PC is manufactured in lower volumes, unlike the home or the office PCs. These PCs are made of thicker-gauge material, which may be either aluminum or cold rolled steel; they come with additional industrial characteristics like shock mounting on the drives, high performance fans, lockable doors and air filters.
The cost of an industrial PC is comparatively more than an IBM or Dell style computer for the same performances. You will find that the backplanes and single-board computers are usually used in the industrial PC systems. Most of the industrial PCs are manufactured with the COTS motherboards, like Intel, Super Micro, Tyan or Long Life. They are also manufactured by industrial motherboards like Chassis Plans, Industrial Computers, Radisys, ARBOR, Corvalent, Itox, and others.
The single board computers have gained popularity for the convenience of being programmed for performing certain tasks and for being conformed to particular standards. Industrial PCs come with various mounting options, such as rackmount, bench top mount, panel mount, fully cased desktop mount and wall mount monitors making them highly suitable for any type of industrial applications.
