|FLEX series – Modular Panel PC with Coffee Lake CPU|
One major characteristic for the new Panel PC FLEX series from ICP Deutschland is the two-part modular design. The combination of high-performance embedded PC FLEX-BX200 and variable LCD kit FLEX-PLKIT offers up to 48 different possibilities. The capacitive multi-touch is anti-reflective and available as a prefabricated LCD kit in sizes of 15" to 23.8" with resolutions ranging from XGA to Full-HD. The embedded PC is equipped with the latest Intel Coffee Lake Core i7/i5/i3 or Pentium CPU and offers users sufficient performance for the processing of complex and computation-intensive processes. The cabling is enabled by means of LVDS, inverter and touch cables.
In addition, the FLEX-BX200 can be equipped with up to 64GB of RAM. Four externally accessible 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s drive bays are available for mass storage expansion. The RAID 0/1/5/10 functionality offers additional security, also thanks to the hot-swappable hard discs. In addition, two M.2 slots with NVMe PCIe 3.0 x4 signal provide space for additional SSDs. Two PCIe 3.0 x8 and two PCIe x4 slots each allow the FLEX to be functionally expanded at will. These slots can take suitable GPOE expansion cards for the direct connection of PoE cameras. Alternatively, optional ThunderboltTM interfaces can also be realized.
The 250W ATX power supply is integrated as standard in the 2U embedded PC. Optionally a 350W power supply can be installed on build to order request. The thermal concept also ensures error-free operation at temperatures between -20°C and +50°C. The excess waste heat is systematically dissipated to the outside. At customer's request, ICP assembles the FLEX Panel PC as a ready-to-use system with industrial RAMs, SSDs and expansion cards.
