Taipei, Taiwan, June 2019 – Advantech, a leading provider of industrial computing platforms, is pleased to announce TPC-71W – the new generation of its industrial panel PCs aimed at machine automation and web-terminal applications. TPC-71W is a cost-efficient, Arm ® -based industrial panel PC that features a 7” true-flat display with P-CAP multi-touch control and an NXP® Arm® Cortex®-A9 i.MX 6 dual/quad-core processor to deliver high-performance computing. The system also features a serial port with a 120Ω termination resistor that supports the CAN 2.0B protocol and offers a programmable bit rate of up to 1 Mb/sec. Equipped with the Google Chromium embedded web browser and support for various operating systems, including Android, Linux Yocto, and Linux Ubuntu with QT GUI toolkits, TPC-71W allows system integrators to easily develop and deploy a wide range of industrial applications. The provision of wireless communication technologies, such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and NFC, via a mini PCIe interface simplifies networking and ensures connectivity for data transfers. TPC-71W also features Power over Ethernet (PoE) functionality for powering devices via Ethernet, thereby eliminating the need to build a power infrastructure. Furthermore, the TPC-71W panel PC supports VESA and panel mounting for flexible and convenient installation. Compared to other similar products, TPC-71W is one of the most competitively priced rugged industrial panel PCs currently available on the market. Overall, this powerful, reliable, and cost-effective computing platform provides the ideal solution for IoT implementation and expansion.        


Powerful Rugged Design for Industrial Applications

Aimed at the industrial market, TPC-71W is a rugged yet compact, fanless panel PC equipped with an NXP® Arm® Cortex®-A9 i.MX 6 dual/quad-core processor, 2 GB DDR3L RAM, and 8 GB eMMC storage to provide high-performance computing and improved efficiency for high-tier industrial applications. The 7” true-flat display with 16:9 aspect ratio features P-CAP multi-touch control for easy and intuitive operation. Moreover, to ensure reliable operation in harsh industrial environments, TPC-71W supports a wide operating temperature range (-20 ~ 60 °C/-4 ~ 140 °F) and is IP66 rated for protection from dust, oil, and water ingress.      

Supports Various OS to Enable Rapid Development

TPC-71W supports various OS, including Android 6, Linux Yocto 2.1, and Linux Ubuntu 16.04 with QT GUI toolkits. Linux is an open-source OS specifically designed to assist system integrators with developing unique applications. The ability to support both Android and Linux eliminates software porting efforts and ensures easy deployment. Moreover, TPC-71W features the Google Chromium embedded web browser that simplifies programming and further facilitates application development.

Increased Connectivity for Web-Based Management

To ensure connectivity for web-based management, TPC-71W offers Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and NFC wireless communication capabilities via a mini PCIe interface. The inclusion of a serial port that supports industrial communication interfaces, such as RS-232/485 and the CAN 2.0B protocol, and a LAN port that supports speeds of up to 1000 Mbps (10/100/1000 Mbps) accelerates data transfer rates, while also enabling Wake-on-LAN functions. Furthermore, the TPC-71W panel PC can be equipped with optional PoE functionality for powering devices via Ethernet; this greatly streamlines installations and reduces overall equipment costs.
