Advantech Launches Next Generation of All-in-One TPC Industrial Panel PCs
November 18, 2020, Taipei, Taiwan - Advantech, a leading industrial computing platform provider is pleased to announce its TPC-300 series–the next generation of its widely adopted TPC industrial panel PC aimed at machine automation and IoT applications.
Inheriting the compact design of its predecessor, the TPC-300 series panel PCs are available with a 15” or 24” true-flat display and either resistive or P-CAP touch control for flexible configuration according to usage requirements. Following 15” and 24”, 12”, 17” and 18.5” will be available in Q1 2021, providing a full range of product sizes to fit various installation sites. Equipped with an 8th generation Intel® Core™ i3/i5/i7 processor and 64 GB of DDR4 memory, the TPC-300 series also supports three types of storage–high-speed M.2 NVMe (M-key) , M.2 (B-key) SATA, and 2.5” SATA SSD–for enhanced computing performance. In addition to its four USB 3.2, one USB 2.0, two RS-232/422/485 ports, and two RS-232 (reserved), TPC-300 features an M.2 (B-key) connector for integrating a 5G module, as well as an mPCIe slot for 4G, LTE, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth modules. The full HD display delivers superior imaging and visual quality, while the IP66-rated front panel protects against water and dust ingress. Additionally, the panel PC is compatible with panel and VESA mounting, allowing it to be conveniently installed and deployed in a wide variety of industrial environments. For improved management, the TPC-300 series supports Advantech’s WISE-PaaS/DeviceOn, WebAccess/SCADA, and WebAccess/HMI software, which enable data visualization, device monitoring and control, and centralized remote management. TPC-300 devices can also be bundled with machine vision software for factory inspection applications, enabling intelligent quality inspections that facilitate industrial IoT operations.
Robust, Reliable Design for Exceptional Performance
TPC-300 is powered by an 8th generation Intel® Core™ i3/i5/i7 processor that supports Intel® Turbo Boost technology and multi-task processing for enhanced computing performance. The next-generation panel PC also features 64 GB of DDR4 memory and support for high-speed M.2 NVMe (M-key), M.2 (B-key) SATA, and 2.5” SATA SSD to facilitate high-speed data processing and storage. The inclusion of ground and chassis isolation protect against damage resulting from electrical faults or power fluctuations. Moreover, to ensure reliable operation in harsh industrial environments, TPC-300 panel PCs support a wide operating temperature range (-10 ~ 55 °C/-14 ~ 131 °F) and are IP66 rated for protection from dust, oil, and water ingress.
Optimized Design for Enhanced Mobility
TPC-300 supports multiple wireless communication technologies and is 5G ready to ensure superior mobile connectivity for real-time communication and high-speed data transmissions. To ensure easy system expansion, the panel PCs is equipped with an M.2 (B-key) connector for integrating a 5G module, and an mPCIe slot for 4G, LTE, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth modules. Additionally, a built-in TPM 2.0 module provides hardware-based security to ensure data integrity and secure transfers across diverse platforms.
Integrated Value-Added Software for IoT Applications
To facilitate convenient device monitoring and preemptive maintenance, the TPC-300 series monitors are bundled with Advantech’s value-added software solutions. These solutions include WISE-PaaS/DeviceOn for remote device monitoring and management; WebAccess/SCADA and WebAccess/HMI for browser-based supervisory control, data acquisition, and visualization; and VisionNavi programmable machine vision software for complex machine vision applications, such as vision-based inspection and measurement. These software offerings are fully tested for compatibility and, combined with the TPC-300 panel PC, provide the ideal application-ready computing solution for IoT implementation and expansion.
