8″ and 12.1″ panel PCs add auto dimming, more GbE ports

Jun 25, 2021 — by Jeff Child 413 views

Nexcom has added 8-inch and 12.1-inch products to its Industrial Panel PC family. The new Bay Trail-based units provide wider operating temperatures, AR, auto dimming and more Gigabit Ethernet ports.

Nexcom has announced two additions to its IPPC (industrial panel PC) family of products: the IPPC 0811-B01 with an 8-inch screen and the IPPC 1211-B01 with a 12.1-inch screen. Like the existing members of the IPPC family, these new panel PCs provide 10-point PCAP multi-touch screens with IP65 protection. The new products offer wider operating temperatures, AR (anti-reflective), auto dimming and more Gigabit Ethernet connectors. Both units embed an Intel Bay Trail SoC clocked to 1.91GHz. The IPPC 0811-B01 is now the smallest yet of Nexcom’s IPPC line, which includes several sizes up to 21.5 inches. And while previous IPPC family members have two GbE ports, these two new products double that to four.

Interestingly, the two Panel PCs we’ve covered so far in 2021 were both based on the Raspberry Pi CM4 compute module. These include Chipsee’s RPi CM4-based Industrial Pi panel PC and Win Enterprises’ IP67 Panel PC. LinuxGimos’ sister website Circuit Cellar did a Datasheet roundup on panel PCs back in March.

Both the IPPC 0811-B01 and IPPC 1211-B01 integrate an industrial motherboard based on the 1.91GHz, quad-core Intel Atom E3845. A single, 204-pin DDR3L SO-DIMM socket enables up to 4GB DDR3L-1866. Each panel PC has a backlit LCD touch-panel for up to 800 x 480 (WVGA) resolution for the 0811-B01 and 1280 x 800 (WXGA) resolution for the 1211-B01. The auto dimming function can be adjusted by an ambient light sensor. A control button lets users increase brightness, decrease brightness, and turn the backlight on/off. The systems features front panels with a flush design and complies with the IP65 enclosure protection standard.

The 0811-B01 and 1211-B01 both support 4x Gigabit Ethernet connectors, one M.2 slot and a swappable SSD tray for a 2.5-inch SSD. Both models offer a 24VDC isolated protection input, which is handy for industrial field and machine devices, says Nexcom. Both panel PCs let you attach a second display via a mini DP (DisplayPort) for a dual independent display set up. The panel PCs each have one adjustable RS232/422/485 port and a watchdog timer.

Aside from their size, the two products are identical in terms of features, interfaces and I/O. The two only differ in their power specifications and of course, their mechanical parameters. Power consumption is 13W-25W for the 0811-B01 and 22W-30W for the 1211-B01. The 0811-B01 has overall dimensions of 218.5 x 147.5 x 39.5-mm and weighs 3 kg. Meanwhile, the 1211-B01 weighs in at 5 kg and has overall dimensions of 307.5 x 209 x 39.9-mm.

The two panel PCs share common ruggedness specifications. Vibration is rated at 1.15 Grms at random condition, 1~200Hz, 1.5hr/axis(operating/non-operating). Shock specs meet IEC 68 2-27 and are rated at 20G for wall mount, half sine, 11ms. Operating temperature is -25 to 60°C, while storage temperature is -25 to 75°C. Operating humidity specifications are 10%-90% relative humidity, non-condensing.
