This fanless industrial computer offers it all: An industrial design free of moving parts, support for Power-over-Ethernet cameras and USB3 cameras, a CPU that can handle multiple cameras with high frame rates, a PCIe slot for additional cameras or I/O, a wide temperature range, and optional integrated discrete 24VDC I/O. Combined with your choice of several powerful CPUs, this platform is ready for demanding industrial machine vision installations.
NO MOVING PARTS
Why should you choose a computer without moving parts? Because it’s the moving parts that fail first. When a cooling fan stops turning, or the hard-disk drive stops spinning, it is sure to be expensive.
It isn’t hard to build a consumer-grade “gaming” computer. But building a fanless system that can handle industrial environments is another matter altogether. The Neousys design puts the CPU right up against the large external heat sink. It can handle 70 degrees C (or 50 degrees C in 65 watt mode) under full load.
Compare the performance of these 8th and 9th generation CPUs against other fanless embedded computers intended for machine vision. We think you'll discover this computer is able to process images faster, while enabling you to run more powerful analysis algorithms.
You can adjust the BIOS of this computer to operate the CPU at either 35 watts or 65 watts. The lower power setting enables operation in ambient temperatures up to 70 degrees C, as compared to 50 degrees C for the higher power setting. Or choose the 65 watt mode for maximum performance.
This computer has six Gigabit Ethernet ports. Four of those ports can deliver Power-over-Ethernet (as a factory option) so cameras and other devices can be powered without pulling additional cables or purchasing external power supplies. To maximize bandwith, five ports have independent Intel I210 controllers, with the sixth having an I219 controller. All ports support jumbo packets to keep CPU interrupts to a minimum. The I210 controller is supported by the Basler Pylon Performance Driver (version 4.1.0 and newer) to further enhance imaging performance.
This industrial computer offers optional integrated discrete I/O for interfacing with PLCs, light controllers, and other devices. Choose the 16 channel board or the 32 channel board. The 5 - 24 VDC inputs are optically isolated, and can be programmed for polling or change-of-state interrupt. The 24 VDC discrete outputs are also isolated. (Order item CRNS360-IO to have the 32-channel board included, at additional cost.)
