micYou probably know a white box PC isn't suitable for your industrial applications, but you may have been unpleasantly surprised when you last checked the prices of industrial PCs (IPCs).

In response to cost and other concerns, Advantech recently introduced their MIC-3100 series of IPCs, specifically designed to work in the harshest industrial environments. These IPCs provide up to three times the value of traditional PCs, while only costing a little more than a white box model.

A full metal chassis makes these IPCs extremely durable and they use hard fixed-pin metric connectors with high resistance to vibration, rather than the more flexible golden finger, to secure MIC-3000 modules.

For east of maintenance, all MIC-3000 series DAQ modules are hot swappable through the front of the MIC-3000 IPCs. Through the use of a simple switch on the front of the modules, they can be quickly inserted and removed without causing disruption to operations. A PCI extension box allows users to add up to four of their own PCI cards and plug them into the IPC chassis.
