Advantech : Fanless box PC targets substation automation

The Industrial Automation Group of Advantech introduces the UNO-4672 fanless box PC with IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1613 compliant computing platform for substation automation applications.  IEC 61850-3 certification ensures environmental and EMI immunity of the network devices used in substations and IEE 1613 details environmental and testing requirements for communication networking devices.

The UNO-4672 has a standard 2U rack size, rear-end wiring, and a front panel LED indicator providing simple management and easy maintenance.  The UNO-4672 comes with an Intel® Pentium M 1.4 GHz or Celeron M 1.0 GHz CPU, 6 x LAN ports, 10 x COM ports (2 x RS-232, 8 x RS-232/422/485), 8 x digital inputs, 8 x digital outputs, 4 x USB ports (1 x front, 2 x rear, 1 x internal) and a PC/104+ expansion slot. 

Furthermore, the UNO-4672 has two 10/100/1000 and four 10/100 Base-T Ethernet ports.  The two 10/100/1000 Base-T Ethernet ports support LAN redundancy teaming functionality allowing it to act as a gateway.  Also, due to its rich I/O interface, the UNO-4672 can act as a controller or protocol server.   In addition, the UNO-4672 supports dual power input AC (90 ~ 250 VDC) and DC (106 ~ 250 VDC) for reliability and supports Windows® XP™ Embedded, Windows 2000/XP, Windows CE 6.0, Linux OS allowing users to choose from many different OS options.

Meeting all these strict certifications and being such a flexible device allows the UNO-4672 to interoperate with the myriad of devices in substation applications and provides a reliable platform.  The UNO-4762 is a great open architecture for any power & energy platform.
