IP65 protected Skylake panel PCs have dual PCIe slots

Oct 29, 2018 — by Eric Brown 366 views

Ibase’s fanless, Linux-ready “IPPC1x05-RE” industrial panel PCs are available in 15-, 17-, and 19-inch sizes with 6th Gen Core EQ/E CPUs, IP65 front-side protection, dual SATA bays, 2x GbE, and 2x PCIe.

Ibase’s 15-inch (IPPC1505-RE), 17-inch (IPPC1705-RE), and 19-inch (IPPC1905-RE) industrial touch-panel PCs are designed for factory automation, machine automation and other harsh indoor applications. The IP65-protected IPPC1x05-RE systems, which follow earlier IPPC branded panel PCs with Bay Trail and older Core models, are higher-end siblings to the company’s recent OFP series. While the OFP models include 15- and 21-inchers based on an Apollo Lake Pentium N4200 and a 21-inch OFP-2101-PC with a dual-core 7th Gen, “Kaby Lake” Core-U, the new IPPC models offer a choice of Intel 6th Gen “Skylake” chips.

The IPPC1x05-RE panel PCs give you a choice of running Windows 7/10 or Linux Kernel 3+ on the quad-core, 2.0GHz/2.8GH Core i7-6822EQ, quad-core 1.9GHz/2.7GHz Core i5-6442EQ, or dual-core, 1.9GHz Core i3-6102E, all with 25W TDPs. The announcement says there’s an option for 7th Gen chips, but no details were supplied on the product pages.

The specs are identical among the three systems except for their screens, which all provide USB-based one-point resistive touch, with 79 percent light transmission and 50,000 hours backlight lifetime:


  • IPPC1505-RE — 15-inch, 1024 x 768 pixels, 420 cd/m2, 600:1 ratio, 160/160 view angles
  • IPPC1705-RE — 17-inch, 1280 x 1024 pixels, 350 cd/m2, 800:1 ratio, 160/140 view angles
  • IPPC1905-RE — 19-inch, 1280 x 1024 pixels, 350 cd/m2, 1000:1 ratio, 170/160 view angles

The IPPC1x05-RE systems ship with 4GB to 32GB RAM (type undisclosed). For storage, you get dual 2.5-inch SATA bays, one of which is populated as a default with a 64GB SSD.

Dual GbE ports provide EtherCAT master support, and there’s optional “wireless,” presumably via one several expansion slots. The system provides dual full-size PCIe x8 slots, as well as a full-size mini-PCIe slot with mSATA support. There’s also a storage focused M.2 M-key socket.

The IPPC panel PCs provide 6x USB 3.0 ports, as well as a front-facing USB 2.0 port located at the front bezel. You also get external RS232/422/485 and RS232 ports, and optional 4-in/4-out DIO. To hook up additional displays, the panel PCs provide HDMI 1.4, DisplayPort, and DVI-D ports. Three audio jacks are also available.

The 442 x 377 x 132.8 IPPC systems provide a 12 to 24VDC input via a 3-pin terminal block. The front panel offers IPC65 protection against water and dust, and there’s a 0 to 50°C (SSD) or a 0 to 40°C (HDD) operating range. The systems are available with VESA 75 x75 or 100×100 mounting options and Ibase’s iSMART green technology with EuP/Erp power saving, auto power on/off scheduler, and power resume functions.
