Box PC with passive cooling and active heating

8 April 2015 Computer/Embedded Technology

Rugged computing is a must for many new IoT, M2M and big data applications deployed in extreme environmental conditions.

To meet requirements for an embedded computer equipped to operate in temperatures as low as -100°C and immersed in water, ICOP developed the ICE Box, a new modular building block system with IP67 protection and active heating which automatically activates if the temperature drops below a configurable minimum temperature (standard value is -20°C).

The modularity of the system means it can be ordered by OEMs in any desired configuration from batch sizes of just one, including individual I/O covers and laser engraving of the housing. Applications can be found in outdoor, vehicle and marine deployment, as well as in refrigerated warehouses.

Amongst the standard components are around 20 different CPUs with SFF, low-power DM&P Vortex86 processor technology, power supplies as well as numerous I/O extensions for Ethernet and wireless (IoT) interfaces, USB, digital and analog I/O, fieldbusses as well as motion control applications. The interfaces can be mounted on the front or back panel according to requirements, paving the way for highly individual OEM configurations.

The ICE Box is suited to OEMs requiring only small volumes (from batch sizes of one) to around 100 units. If at a later date larger field deployments are required, ICOP can also produce customised components and system housings.
