Advantech ARK-2121 Multiple I/O Modular Fanless Embedded Systems Achieve Time to Customization

Sept 22, 2015, Taipei– Advantech, a global leader in the embedded system market, is pleased to announce the ARK-2121, a ruggedized, compact, fanless, embedded system with Intel® Celeron J1900 2.0GHz Quad-Core processor. The ARK-2121 series delivers three times the performance of the previous Intel® D2550 platform empowered by turbo boost computing. ARK-2121 series also supports -20 ~ 70 °C extend temperature operation, featuring harsh environment applications such as semi-outdoor, in-cabinet traffic control; parking kiosks; and roadside signage.
Multiple I/O Fulfills Various Application Needs  
ARK-2121 series has two SKUs, ARK-2121L and ARK-2121F, each with unique features. ARK-2121L is equipped with essential I/Os and iDoor expansion flexibility; it is a perfect choice as entry-level industrial controller for factory automation and machine automation. ARK-2121F provides more COM ports and USB ports for applications that require rich peripheral integration. Moreover, ARK-2121F reserves an optional 2nd HDMI/ DVI-D, and dual GbE for project integration, with CE/FCC/UL/CB/CCC/BSMI certification ready for all options.
Integrated iDoor Mini PCIe Module for Flexible Extension
Advantech’s iDoor series provides varies industrial I/O module selection, which including RS-232/422/485, CANBus, GbE, parallel port and digital I/O. All iDoor modules have a unified mechanical design and mounting method. The SystemIntegrator can speed up ARK-2121L I/O customization simply by installing suitable iDoor modules.
Lockable I/O Design
Cable connection failure caused by continuous vibration is commonly encountered in industrial applications. To prevent this, ARK-2121 series has lockable I/O design, including VGA, HDMI, GbE, COM, DIO and DC power in, whichensure that cables stay securely connected, evenin a high vibration environment.
Built-in SUSIAccess, Self-sensing, and Smart Remote Management Software
ARK-2121 series uses Advantech SUSIAccess software to provide self-sensing and management capabilities for remote monitoring and control, self-diagnosis and correction, with automatic email alerts. Acronis® executes backup and recovery that can save valuable data in the unlikely event of a system crash. McAfee® enhances system security with white-list software control, and also provides an encryption lock to avoid program theft.
