Advantech’s High-Performance UNO-2000 Embedded Computers Deployed in Substation Inspection Robots
Market: Smart Houseware
Compact, lightweight device that can easily fit into the robot’s limited internal space
High-performance Intel® processor capable of high-volume, high-speed processing
Wide operating temperature range and optimized design to ensure reliable operation in outdoor environments
Multiple I/O interfaces enable the integration of various hardware devices
Easy expansion solutions allow new functions to be conveniently and easily added
For this project, the standard substation inspection robot was equipped with UNO-2483G. Because the system is compact (252 x 149 x 62 mm) and lightweight (1.6 kg), UNO-2483G can easily fit into the robot’s limited internal space. The comparatively lower weight also reduces wear on the robot wheels. Moreover, UNO-2483G features an Intel® Core™ i7 processor capable of high-volume, high-speed data processing. Thus, complex computing tasks involving images and videos can be easily completed.
Meanwhile, the simplified substation inspection robot was equipped with a palm-sized UNO-2272G computer. This small (157 x 88 x 50 mm) and lightweight (0.8 kg) system features an Intel® Celeron® J1900 quad-core processor to enable high-performance computing for complex tasks.
Both UNO computers are fanless, equipped with a solid-state drive, support a wide operating temperature range (-20 ~ 60 °C), and have passed IEC anti-vibration and anti-shock tests to ensure reliable operation. Additionally, both computers provide a variety of I/O interfaces, including serial ports, Ethernet ports, USB, DisplayPort, audio input/output ports, for a wide range of industrial applications. Furthermore, Advantech’s iDoor technology offers system integrators flexible expansion that overcomes the fixed specifications of embedded computers. This enables users to integrate diverse modules in order to add additional functions according to their application requirements.
Advantech’s UNO-2000 series of embedded computers offer cost-effective solutions for control applications. They satisfy the size, performance, durability, stability, and expansion flexibility criteria required for installation in substation inspection robots. More importantly, Advantech can leverage its years of development experience and domain expertise to assist system integrators with developing new products for automated substation inspection applications.
