Advantech Co., Ltd.: Upgraded Processing Power for Industrial Panel PCs

The Industrial Automation Group of Advantech has upgraded the processing power of its IPPC-9151G and IPPC-9171G to Intel Core i7 processors from an Intel P-4 processor.

Thereby, having the advantage of not only making it faster than before but, also makes it more cost effective. 

To support the management of these devices, each includes iManager and SusiAccess system management applications. iManager is a hardware level application written on to its own chip, thereby enabling the system management, debugging, and fixing of the system in real-time if the operating system crashes. SusiAccess provides many of the same features as iManager but runs on the operating system and has an easy to use graphical user interface which enables system integrators to centrally manage a wide range of embedded devices from a single location. 
For added flexibility, the IPPC-9000 series supports Windows Embedded Standard 2009 and QNX operating systems thereby, allowing seamless integration with existing systems. 
Designed for the rigors of harsh industrial environments, the IPPC-9000 series with its toughened glass and aluminum bezel is NEMA4/IP65 certified so, it can be cleaned without fear of damage from chemical cleaners, oil, and water. For further durability, the IPPC-9000 series includes a stainless steel back cover. All of these features amount to one of Advantech’s most robust and feature-rich products.
