105x149mm full metal housing controller has gigabit PoE

June 19, 2017 // By Julien Happich
The new series of ultra-compact and fanless POC-300 industrial controllers from acceed consists of four devices with varied interface equipment and two alternative processors for selection.

Up to three gigabit interfaces are available, of which two are equipped with PoE, four USB ports and an array of standard serial and digital interfaces. With the fast MezIO slot, for which an array of special MezIO modules are available, custom embedded applications can be made affordably for space-critical applications in building automation, video monitoring or imaging within industrial surroundings. The series POC-300 fanless box controllers are equipped either with the N4200 Intel Pentium (1.1/2.5 GHz) or the E3950 quad core processor (1.6/2.0 GHz, code name Apollo Lake), also from Intel. The working memory for all model versions can be upgraded to 8GB.

The design of the full metal housing, specially optimised for heat dissipation and consisting of a resistant aluminium alloy together with the two PoE gigabit connections, is predestined for security applications with IP cameras and further applications with IP-based Smart devices. Four USB connections of which two with USB 3.0 and several serial (RS-232/422/485) connections provide high flexibility for data communication with devices, sensors and actors. A DVI connection for analogue RGB and DVI/HDMI as well as an audio output and microphone input round-off the generous configuration options. In addition to the MezIO slot, a mini PCIe socket with a USIM slot for communication in the mobile communications network can be found within the housing on the PCB. For on-site data saving, SSD hard drives with various capacities can be integrated via the internal MSATA connection.

The POC-300 series embedded PCs can be operated at an ambient temperature range from -25°C to +70 °C with an installed SSD and 100% CPU load.
