Industrial PCs are designed to withstand the harsh conditions of industrial environments including vibration, dust, and extreme temperatures making them ideal for controlling and monitoring manufacturing processes. Designed for use in industrial settings, they’re an instant upgrade to your factory floor capability and will meet your reliability requirements. They offer several advantages over standard consumer grade PCs including:
Durability and reliability
Built to withstand harsh environmental conditions they also usually housed in rugged enclosures to protect them from physical damage.
Industrial PCs typically have a longer product life cycle than consumers PCs and there are fewer hardware upgrades or replacements needed.
Compatibility with legacy systems
Many industrial processes rely on legacy hardware and software systems. Industrial PCs can be configured to work seamlessly with older technology, making them a practical choice for industries that can't easily update their entire infrastructure.
Industrial PCs often run on stable and well-tested operating systems, which reduces the risk of system crashes and downtime. This is crucial in industries where downtime can result in significant financial losses.
Embedded and fanless options
Fans are common point of failure and require maintenance so it’s useful to know fanless options are available as well as embedded IPCs which are compact and can be integrated into existing machinery and equipment.
Industrial PCs can incorporate enhanced security features to protect against cyber threats. This is increasingly important as industrial systems become more interconnected and vulnerable to cyberattacks.
Industrial PCs are frequently used for data acquisition and real-time control applications, where precise timing and synchronisation are critical.
