Cincoze has launched a rugged embedded computer aimed at connecting equipment, machines, and systems used in energy production, transmission, and consumption through sensors, controls, and software in the Internet of Energy (IoE).

Cincoze’s Diamond DV-1000 aims to support the delivery of power where and when it’s needed through smart power storage and distribution with forecasting through big data analysis and machine learning.

The DV-1000 is compact, about the size of A5 paper (224 x 162 x 64 mm), making it easy to install in any small outdoor electrical cabinet, powered by 9th/8th generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3 (Coffee Lake-R S series) processors and up to 32 GB of DDR4 2666 MHz memory. This provides the computing power for the real-time processing and analysis of large amounts of data, and meeting the high computing requirements required for the IoE.

The foundation of IoE lies in distributed energy management. Renewable energy sites need many sensors to collect on-site data from power switches, smart meters, thermostats, and other devices. That data must then be analyzed and transmitted over a network to the control center to determine power distribution.

The DV-1000 has the most commonly used I/O interfaces needed for IoE applications, including 2× GbE LAN, 2× COM, and 6× USB, which can be connected to various types of sensors and other devices. For further expansion, COM and DIO ports can be added using Cincoze’s exclusive CMI modularization technology, and USB 3.0 and GbE LAN can be added using MEC modules. The DV-1000 can fully meet the requirements of various sensor interfaces and networking in IoE.

Renewable energy sites are usually outdoors, so the harsh installation environment and sudden temperature changes must be considered. The DV-1000 works in a wide temperature range (-40 to 70°C), supports a wide input voltage (9 to 48VDC), and has passed the military standard MIL-STD-810G shock and vibration tests, proving it can withstand the shock and vibration of harsh environments. If a higher wattage processor is used for high-speed operation, the DV-1000 can be fitted with a dedicated external fan.

To avoid electromagnetic interference in the chassis, the DV-1000 has passed EMC certification, including CE, UKCA, FCC, ICES-003 Class A, and other multinational EMC standards.
