Nematron Corporation announces the launch of the new iPC-Series of Industrial Computers, now with Intel® i-Series Core™ embedded processors. Following in the footsteps of the highly successful ePC-Series, the innovative iPC-Series continues to change the definition of traditional Industrial PCs, most notably by offering the latest in embedded processing power with the following Intel CPU options: i7 Dual Core, i5 Dual Core, and Dual Core Celeron P4500. Each processor option continues Nematron’s move toward providing high-performance/low power processing to fit most industry needs.
The iPC-Series computers include 12” (iPC1200), 15” (iPC1500), 17” (iPC1700), and 19” (iPC1900) LCD versions, with all-new LED backlighting. All are available with 5-wire Analog Resistive touchscreens and NEMA sealed panel mount front panels. Their ultra-thin size and very thin panel mounted depth of less than 3.2” (81.3mm) make them ideal for installation in harsh environments, especially hazardous locations. Each iPC-Series model utilizes the same chassis as the previous ePC-Series, allowing for easy replacement and upgrading using the current footprint. The iPC-Series can also be ordered as a non-display node computer (nPC300) offering flexibility for mounting in space-constrained applications. “In designing the new iPC-Series computers, our aim was to continue building on the success of previous industrial computers that we introduced to the marketplace by offering the latest in backlighting, I/O and processing at a very competitive price that many applications desire,” explains Ralph Damato, VP – Product Management of Nematron. “And the iPC-Series does that. We are proud to see our efforts produce high quality, cost-competitive industrial PCs that offer the technology and enhancements that today’s evolving market demands,” continues Damato. Additional upgrades from the previous ePC-Series include two more USB ports, upping the total available to six.
Operating system options will be Windows® XP Professional 32-bit, Windows 7 Professional 32-bit, and now Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, providing enhanced 64-bit application support. All iPC-Series units come standard with 2 GB DRAM, 40 GB SATA Solid State drives, and Powder Coated Aluminum front bezels. All sizes and models of the iPC-Series and nPC300 will have UL and cUL 508 as well as Class I Division 2, RoHS, and European CE approvals, making system integration a breeze for virtually any application and/or location.
