Scalable Tiger Lake DIN-rail control PC ideal for industrial control applications

Impulse Embedded now supplies the UNO-148, the latest addition to Advantech’s UNO-1 series of IoT gateway devices, bringing Intel 11th Gen Tiger Lake Core power to its range of compact DIN-rail mountable industrial computers.

Built to run Windows 10 IoT or Ubuntu 20.4 Linux, with industrial features such as isolated serial and digital I/O, and wide input voltage and operating temperature ranges, the PC is ideal for a range of true industrial applications incorporating traffic management, factory automation, and robotic control.

The device is provided with a choice of the 11th Gen Core i7, i5, or i3 processors and offers two SO-DIMM memory slots, which are populated with 8GB of DDR4 3200MHz but may be upgraded up to 64GB. In keeping with the fast memory and high-performance processing abilities, it also provides an M.2 2280 M-key slot for NVMe SSDs and an independent 2.5Gigabit Ethernet controller, capable of real-time communication for low latency applications such as robotics and PLC control. Moreover, the device offers two Gigabit Ethernet ports, an M.2 2230 E-key slot for the latest WiFi 6 wireless expansion cards, and an M.2 3042/3052 B-key slot that can be utilised to install high speed, low latency 5G cellular modules.

Like other UNO-1 series embedded computers, it is DIN-rail mountable, fanless, and compact in size. When combined with its flexible communication options and wide power input range (9V to 36V DC), it can be installed simply into control cabinets anywhere on site. With wide -20C to +60C operating temperature support as standard, it displays its appropriateness for harsh industrial environments. Packed with I/O, the PC has four RS-232/422/485 serial ports, all with 2.5kV isolation, 16-channel DIO (8-in/8-out) again with 2.5kV isolation as standard, three 10Gbps USB3.2 Gen2 ports and two DisplayPort interfaces.

The company has over 20 years of designing, building, and supporting embedded computing solutions and can fully configure this DIN-rail automation control PC to any specification in their UK-based engineering facility. Options include the choice of memory, storage, peripherals and embedded operating system.
