Advantech Introduces the IPC-320 Compact Tower IPC for Industrial Applications
Taipei, March 30th, 2023 - Advantech (TWSE: 2395), a global leader in Industrial IoT, is excited to announce the release of its IPC-320, a compact tower IPC powered by 12th/13th Gen Intel® Core™ i processors. With only 7.7 liters of space, it is ideal for in-cabinet installations where space is limited. With its industrial-grade design, modern appearance and low acoustics, the IPC-320 is a brand-new edge computer design that reshapes the image of industrial PCs, making it a high-performance control console for factory automation and industrial manufacturing, but also a reliable terminal for laboratories and healthcare industries.
Compact Tower Workstation Design for Upright Cabinets
IPCs are designed to provide a stable control console for factories. With recent advancements, IPCs are getting smaller and adapting to the role of edge computing applications. Advantech has successfully launched its compact IPC 200 series, which is perfect for in-cabinet installations where space is limited with its compact box form factor. The newly launched IPC-320 is a compact tower design of 7.7 liters size, providing a new choice for workstations with upright in-cabinet requirements. Furthermore, the IPC-320 offers two low-profile expansion slots (1 x PCIe x16 and 1 x PCIe x4), extending the system's functionality with add-on cards, such as a frame grabber, COM, and low-profile GPU cards, which support various industrial IoT applications.
Quiet Operation and Versatile I/O for a Wide Range of Applications
Powered by 12th/13th Gen Intel® Core™ processors, IPC-320 can provide high-performance computing capability. It is equipped with both front and rear I/O (4 x USB 3.2 (Gen1) and 4 x USB 2.0) for more external connection with flexibility. With Advantech’s exclusive thermal design, IPC-320 has the advantage of low noise operation (34dB acoustics under 100% workload), which means quieter working environments. IPC-320 also an ideal control console for operators working in close proximity, such as shop floor computers used in manufacturing, and it offers greater possibilities for a wide range of applications, such as laboratory equipment control, and healthcare monitoring applications for medical image processing.
Industrial-Grade Design with Longevity Support and Strict Product Certification
With Advantech's longevity support, strict product certification service, revision management, and worldwide-localized support, IPC-320 is an ideal choice for stable operations and control. As a global leader in industrial IoT, Advantech is delivering on its ambition to equip IPCs for a wide range of uses in diverse industries.
