Advantech Launches PPC-100 Series of RISC-Based Android Panel PCs Aimed at Industrial Digitalization
March 2022, Taipei, Taiwan – Advantech, a leading industrial computing platform provider, is pleased to announce PPC-115W and PPC-112W – the first models of its PPC-100 series of RISC-based Android panel PCs.
Advantech’s PPC product family offers highly scalable and economical panel PC solutions in a range of performance classes and display sizes to satisfy diverse industrial applications. Powered by a Rockchip RK3399 SoC and Mali-T860 GPU, the PPC-100 series is designed to round out the PPC product line by providing cost-effective widescreen computing options that are ready to deploy out of the box and can be easily integrated with existing HMI/MES systems.
PPC-115W and PPC-112W feature a 15.6” (HD or FHD) and 11.6” panel display, respectively, with multi-touch P-CAP control to ensure convenient operation. The 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio offers an enhanced visual experience, making them ideal for industrial digitalization, informatization, and data visualization applications. With the pre-installed memory, storage, I/O, and system software, PPC-115W and PPC-112W enable system integrators and independent software vendors to build comprehensive systems easily and rapidly. The added provision of Advantech’s WISE-IoTSuite/AppHub built into the Android 10 operating system also offers several intelligent management tools for time savings and reduced costs. Overall, PPC-115W and PPC-112W provide powerful HMI solutions for realizing the factory IT ecosystem and driving IIoT.
Larger Display Size with Multi-Touch Control
Advantech’s PPC-115W and PPC-112W panel PCs provide high-performance all-in-one devices that can be quickly deployed in factory environments for diverse display applications. Equipped with a true-flat panel with 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio and full HD resolution, PPC-115W and PPC-112W offer an increased screen size (15.6”/11.6”, respectively) compared to other Android panel PCs available on the market. The larger display screen facilitates high-quality imaging and data visualization for industrial digitalization and informatization operations. Additionally, the provision of multi-touch P-CAP control supports zoom, drag, swipe, and pinch touchscreen gestures, ensuring convenient and ergonomic operation for end users.
Powerful Performance and Flexible Scalability
Designed for scalable computing performance, PPC-115W and PPC-112W are built with a Rockchip RK3399 SoC that features a dual-core ARM Cortex®-A72 and quad-core Cortex®-A5 processor and ARM’s big.LITTLE core architecture for optimal integer and floating point processing, as well as improved memory access speeds. Meanwhile, the inclusion of a quad-core Mali-T860 GPU supports 2K low-persistence displays and ultra-HD video decoding for improved graphical performance. With this premium computing power, big data and vision processing tasks can be efficiently managed by factory administrators. In addition to flexible I/O, including 1 x USB 3.0, 1 x micro USB OTG, 1 x RS-232, and 1 x LAN, PPC-115W/112W can also be equipped with optional expansion for integrating additional devices, such as a barcode scanner for asset tracking or ID verification functions.
Pre-Configured Solution for Easy Deployment
To enable rapid deployment and integration, PPC-115W and PPC-112W are equipped with the Android 10 operating system and all memory, storage, and driver components are pre-configured. Furthermore, the panel PCs are pre-installed with Advantech’s WISE-IoTSuite/AppHub web-based solution for remote device management. WISE-IoTSuite/AppHub supports over-the-air software deployment and updates, batch operations, real-time monitoring, and remote system control functions for managing multiple Android devices simultaneously. These features not only optimize operational efficiency and management, but also facilitate a wide range of factory-related industrial and semi-industrial visualization applications.
