Panel PCs integrate your embedded computing solution and a touchscreen into one device, taking up less space, reducing cable usage, and offering improved robustness and mobility. The built-in touchscreen provides a human-machine-interface (HMI) to enable you to easily control your equipment.
Technexion has a number of panel PC series with options to customize for high performance, cost-effectiveness, multi-touch, ruggedness, waterproof, temperature range, type of mounting, touch panel size, and different I/O expansion needs. Our panels are ideal for automation, manufacturing, surveillance, transportation, or the food and beverage industry.
Our TEP Series of panel computing devices is based on ARM or x86 architecture. It features an aluminum enclosure with a cable-less design; all the I/O connectors are on the main single board computer or brought towards the power networking or automation I/O expansion modules by using a high-speed board-to-board connector.
Through multiple internal mini-PCIe sockets and M.2 expansion slots for SSD, 3G, LTE and Wi-Fi expansion modules, it enables a huge range of options to connect to the cloud or a remote network.
Power and Networking Expansion Interface and Modules
The TEP Series comes with a power and networking expansion interface with networking and control I/Os such as SPI, I²C and GPIO.
A range of off-the-shelf modules are available with in-built networking and single 12V DC, 24V DC, 10-30V DC wide power, or Power-Over-Ethernet – with smart network switching capability – options.
Automation I/O Expansion Interface and Modules
We have also included an I/O expansion interface that adds CAN Bus, UART, I²C, SPI, USB and GPIO interfaces. For this interface a range of modules are available with galvanic isolated I/O, RS-232/422/485 or extensive GPIO numbers.
TechNexion TEP Series panel computing devices incorporate only components from the roadmaps of strategic suppliers; they are backed up with value added technical services such as life cycle management, revision control and end-of-life support.
