The Best Industrial PC

The Best Industrial PC

In Acura, we take equipment longevity seriously. Our IPC enables engineers to explore manufacturing opportunities using big data and IoT initiatives without compromising the traditional reliability, robustness, and long-term availability needed to maximize machine uptime for as long as it takes.

Our IPC uses only Intel industrial CPUs that can guarantee a minimum availability of 10 years. All internal components are managed by a controlled bill of materials, which means change and availability are managed. We don’t want you to have surprises or changes without notice!

Reasons to use the Industrial PC

1. Form Factor

Unlike desktops, the Industrial PC has several cabinet options suitable for installation on the factory floor, with formats ranging from a 22” Acupanel to a super compact IPC for DIN rail mounting or for wall or panel mounting with the built-in touch screen display reducing the cost with adaptations for proper fixing in the industrial plant.

2. Application Performance and Longevity

Today’s industrial computers have performance equivalent to desktops combined with a longer life cycle, getting the best of both worlds and eliminating the risk of obsolescence that the desktop will inevitably suffer.

3. Expansion and I/O

The IPC has multiple Ethernet, USB, and serial communication ports, it also has multiple video outputs in addition to ISA, PCI, PCI express, mini PCIe, Compact PCI, and PXI expansion slots.

4. Customization

The IPC, due to its characteristic of use in specific applications, is designed or customized to meet technical requirements that could never be met by a conventional desktop.

5. Total Cost of Ownership

Industrial PC requires a higher initial investment, but over time the total cost of ownership is much lower compared to the cost of repairing, regularly replacing business PCs that are not suited to support the demands of industrial use and the risk of having the investment realized in the acquisition of machines and systems lost due to the obsolescence of the commercial PC, which occurs much more slowly with the industrial PC that has a much longer life cycle.

What sets industrial computers apart?

An industrial computer has characteristics that are quite different from those found in a home or office computer, in particular, the following:

   

    What are the technical characteristics to consider?

As with non-industrial computers, here too the offer is very varied, and your choice will essentially depend on the level of performance you want for your PC and on the area of ​​application of the industrial PC, that’s why you first discuss the requirements and the environmental conditions that are decisive for the design and designs of the industrial PC hardware:

IPCs in the classic 15.6-inch format, such as the Roughneck series from Acura, are really powerful with a high level of reliability in series production. This is ensured by the Intel processors. Another special feature of the Roughneck is the diverse connectivity. and two display ports offer almost limitless connection options. Two front fans ensure reliable cooling.
