New Advantech compact IPCs promise to easily integrate in enclosures

Aug. 27, 2017 – Advantech’s IIoT Automation Group has released a new series of rackmount IPCs boasting short-depth, self-diagnosis, remote manageability, and modularized design.
According to the company, these IPCs can easily integrate in an equipment enclosure, leaving more space for cable routing and internal devices. Once installed, the IPCs report their status to a remote administrator, in an effort to reduce on-site inspection costs and the risk of unexpected downtime.
The ACP-2020 and ACP-4020 both feature short-depth (400/350mm), a built-in intelligent system module that checks IPC fan speed and temperature, and reports abnormal condition. The front-accessible system fan, hot-swap drive bay, and redundant power module promise quick maintenance.
The IPC-603 and IPC-631 feature short-depth (308/350mm) and all I/Os are on the front where the user can access cables, connectors, AC inlet, buttons, and LED. The IPC-631 supports a hot-swappable drive-bay and redundant power supply, which help simplify cable routing and maintenance, says Advantech.
The ACP-4D00 features short depth (350mm) and dual-node design. It encloses two independent IPCs in a 4U cage. Each node has two expansion slots and can be configured independently for different task.
