Fitlet2 operates with an extended range of operating temperatures (-40/+85C) with power demand as low as 5W. The Intel-powered micro PC further joins Tiny Green PC’s offering of rugged process control units and IoT gateways for smart building, CCTV systems, transportation and real-time data management.
Two quad-core models are available: the E3950 is based on the Intel Atom Processor x7 Series with a CPU speed range of 1.6 to 2 GHz and low power consumption from 5W. Alternatively, the J3455 comes with the Intel Celeron Processor J Series and a CPU speed range of 1.5 to 2.3 GHz. Both models come with graphics capabilities through the Intel HD Graphics 505/500 processors.
The company adds, “This FitPC2 successor [measures] 112 x 84 x 34 mm with integrated heatsink. In addition, the PC is built around Atom E3900 Apollo Lake processors, especially developed by Intel for industrial IoT applications: it brings improved data communications and faster processing tasks thanks to 64-bit quad-core CPU performance. When you add rich customisable connectivity and best-in-class reliability, you get the perfect micro-sized PC for fire alarm systems, building security, remote diagnosis, predictive maintenance or fleet monitoring.”
Standard connectivity includes dual Ethernet ports, dual 4K video outputs (appreciable for CCTV and inspection applications), one microSD card slot, one serial port, two GPIO LED, two USB 3.0 ports and two USB 2.0 ports. The Function And Connectivity T-card (FACET card) provides further customisation options such as an additional dual Gbit Ethernet port, four extra USB 2.0 ports or simultaneous cellular modem and WI-FI/Bluetooth, enabling users to configure the Fanless PC for their specific needs.
A spokesman adds, “Intel has introduced Atom E3900 Apollo Lake Processors with a maximum RAM capacity of 8 GB, but we have successfully tested in the lab with 16 GB RAM and will offer this option to match some of our customers’ requirements. This is very impressive for a form factor this small, and against all other PCs with x7 E3950 or J3455 in the market, like the NUC version, which are commercialised with up to 8 GB…. Thanks to M.2 mSATA, the booting time and the energy efficiency of the storage have improved. Features needed for remote management, such as wake-on-timer and remote power button, are also present as well as selectable power source (15-36V).”
Tiny Green PC is offering Windows 10 IoT Enterprise (LTSB entry licence) on Fitlet2, recommending LTSB to create secure, connected systems for data collection and monitoring IoT applications as well as to ensure stable solutions mandatory for successful embedded projects. Other OS options like Windows 10 Pro and Linux options can also be installed by Tiny Green PC’s technicians.
Fitlet2 pricing is from £195 barebone with customisation available.
