MEN Micro Inc., a world-renowned provider of embedded computing and I/O solutions for mission-critical industrial, mobile and harsh environment applications, now offers the DC2. The new rugged panel display combines capacitive touch technology for easier human interface with a fanless, maintenance-free design for better display reliability.
Equipped with an Intel Atom 1.3 GHz XL Z520PT processor as well as 1 GB of DDR2 SDRAM and a 2 GB microSD card, the DC2 offers high data throughput and memory capacities. The DC2 also accommodates additional Intel processor configurations.
Ideal for use in transportation, mobile and industrial automation applications, the panel-mounted DC2 features a 10.4” 4:3 LCD TFT display with a 1024 x 768 resolution as standard, with larger screen sizes up to 19” as well as higher resolutions and aspect ratios available, depending on user requirements. Specific applications include train driver cabins, buses and agricultural machines as well as information panels within a vehicle or at a station.
Standard I/O is comprised of two Fast Ethernet and two USB ports as well as four binary inputs via the 10-pin power supply connector. The Ethernet interfaces have switch functionality to provide Ethernet connection to subsequent intelligent displays. A temperature sensor monitors and controls the display.
The unit's control electronics, attached directly to the back of the display, allow for the customized screen sizes, alternative processors and various aspect ratios. The flexible design of the DC2 enables more configuration options including the use of M12 connectors as well as connecting additional interfaces, a GPS adapter or HD audio. A MiniPCI Express card slot with an external antenna can be used for wireless functions, such as WLAN, WIFI, GSM/GPRS, EDGE, UMTS, HDSPA and LTE.
The DC2 is equipped with a 9 V to 36 V wide-range power supply and operates from 40°C to +70°C as well as at +85°C for up to 10 minutes according to temperature class Tx. All components are soldered to withstand shock and vibration and are prepared for conformal coating. The panel computer is prepared for the e1 automotive certification and also corresponds to railway standard EN50155 with an additional power supply unit.
Pricing for the DC2 is $2,200. Delivery is six to eight weeks ARO.
