If you're looking for ruggedness and reliability of a PLC with the performance and connectivity of a PC, then look no further. DIN-Rail mount PCs deliver on both counts, delivering excellent price/performance ratios by packaging the latest PC technologies into an industrial form factor.
Typical applications include machine and field device control. For machine control, DIN-Rail PCs connect to I/O through industrial fieldbus protocols. For field device control, DIN-Rail PCs connect directly to environmental sensors or devices via isolated serial ports or built in digital I/O modules.
Advantech offers two new DIN-Rail PCs, the UNO-1483G and the UNO-1372G. The UNO-1483G features Intel's 4th generation Core i3-4010U processor with four GbE and two mini-PCIe expansion slots and is designed to handle the most demanding applications. The UNO-1372G makes use of Intel's Atom E3845 with four GB RAM and Mini-PCIe expansion to provide a high level of performance at a lower cost.
