IBASE: 7th/6th gen Intel Core expandable modular fanless Box PC
IBASE announces its brand new AMS300 series expandable modular box PC. The AMS300 is a compact, yet expandable fanless system designed for industrial control and measurement processes in smart factory automation applications. It is powered by 7th/6th Gen Intel Core i7/i5/i3 processors and comes integrated with 8GB memory as well as 64GB of industrial-grade SSD storage. An optional 2MB MRAM expansion module is available to store data even without power. The AMS300 is built with two module compartments for PCI-E/PCI cards and Fieldbus modules, giving flexibility to customers to configure the various I/O required. The unit also features high vibration and shock resistance crucial for deployment in harsh conditions and all interfaces situated on one side for easy assembly and expansion.
Built with a passive finned heat sink, the rugged AMS300 boasts of superb thermal performance while reliably operating at a temperature range of -10 to 60°C. It adopts wall, side and DIN-rail mounting to securely fit in space-constrained and industrial environments. Advanced features include iAMT (11.6) for remote management and repair of systems and IBASE’s owned iSMART technology that enables energy-efficient systems with various power-saving functions. AMS300 offers extensive I/O connectivity including a drive bay with RAID 0/1 support, a 24V DC terminal block, 4x USB 3.0 which can be used as machine vision camera interace, 2x USB 2.0, 2x COM, 2x Gigabit Ethernet and video outputs for DVI-I and DisplayPort interface.
To meet customer specific requirements, the AMS301, an AMS300 variant model, houses an extension module with an IP301 card with 3x mPCIe slots that can be installed with optional PROFINET and PROFIBUS Fieldbus modules. The AMS302, on the other hand, has an IP302 expansion card with interface for USB, COM, PCI-E(x8) and PCI-E(x4) devices.
