Advantech has released its latest new 1U THIN barebone system with 8th Gen. Intel Core processors up to 65W TDP – EPC-T2286. This system supports Intel 8th generation Core i7/i5/i3 processors which bring enhanced performance over previous generations with up to six CPU cores and Intel’s 9th generation graphics engine. EPC-T2286 powers up to two independently operated 60 Hz 4K displays via DisplayPort or HDMI and supports Wall/ VESA/ rack mounting for flexible easy installation.
The compact 1U height EPC-T2286 is just 250 x 44.2 x 225 mm. It offers the high processing capability of a desktop CPU with up to six CPU cores and Intel 8th Core i7/i5/i3 and Pentium/Celeron processors to deliver high computing power and graphic performance. The Intel H310 Express chipset supports Dual Channel DDR4 2666MHz memory (up to 32GB) in two SODIMM slots. Features include integrated Intel Gen 9 graphics (Display Port, HDMI), triple gigabit Ethernet w/ EtherCAT capability, 6 x serial ports (2x RS-232/422/485 by BOM option), and ESD level 4 protection compliance. All these features make EPCT2286 well suited to kiosk or automation applications needing a compact 1U height chassis.
To fulfill space limited kiosk or automation application requirements, the 1U THIN EPC-T2286 offers different mounting kits for installation into various cabinets and spaces. EPC-T2286 has 6 x COM ports, 8 x USB ports, DP, and HDMI which allows it to easily connect to RFID readers, thermal printers, Key PAD, touch screens, 4k displays and so on. SI or tool machine builders can easily integrate the whole system and shorten their time to market. Furthermore, the ESD level 4 (contact 8kv and air 15kv) design offers better ESD protection for automation applications operating in harsh environments.
A core advantage of EPC-T2286 is that it comes equipped with Advantech’s WISE-PaaS/DeviceOn software solution designed to simplify IoT application integration. WISE-PaaS/DeviceOn is an IoT device management software platform which includes remote device, monitor, control, event management, system management, and software over-the-air update. WISE-PaaS/DeviceOn not only helps create new web services but also helps to integrate functions and data with its powerful management tools. WISE-PaaS highly enhances connectivity for hardware, software, devices and sensors, and helps customers to transform their business to include IoT cloud services.
