Industrial computers are usually installed in control cabinets or control consoles and therefore often have to be designed for the tightest space requirements. This is especially true for panel PCs, whose display fills the entire front surface so that the computer has to work without a fan. We offer you three models that do not need ventilation slots and are equipped with an integrated heat sink instead. This dissipates the resulting heat loss and ensures that the Industrial PC also works without a fan without problems.
The necessary space optimization naturally also affects the size and format of the industrial computers. The height of flat panel PCs is expressed in height units (HE), with a 1U PC having a height of 1.75 inches and 44.45 millimeters, respectively, and a 2U PC is twice as high. Alptech offers you eight 1U computers as well as three 2U computers that fit perfectly into the standard 19 inch racks and can be efficiently integrated into existing systems.
The true “size” of an industrial computer is measured by its inner life. We also have ISA PCs in the program, which continue to be equipped with Industry Standard Architecture (ISA). It extended the bus architecture to 16-bit on IBM-compatible PCs and was standard until the mid-1990s. The reason for it is that most of the very long lasting industrial applications, cards for example, still rely on the presence of ISA buses. When you purchase an ISA computer from Alptech, your tried and tested system will continue to run without restrictions.
Compact, robust and powerful – these features characterize a box PC, of which we have many different models in the program. For industrial applications, a box PC is best suited for its design. One further development is the flat panel PC, which is often integrated into switchboards. However in industry, IPC panels are also used in research and services – for example, they are often now part of the high-tech equipment of medical practices. At Alptech, you can choose between two dozen panel PCs.
Often they are trifles that can crash a whole system. If, for example, a screen no longer functions or is not compatible with application extensions the process sequences can no longer be adequately monitored. Alptech supplies you with the appropriate industrial display and advises you as well on the choice of the industrial PC on which a particular monitor would be best suited. Whether a display, computer or a complete industrial PC system, we find the right solution for every requirement!
