Widescreen Panel PCs Connect Sensors, Machines and Servers

March 17, 2015 By Karen Henry

Arbor Solution ASLAN Energy ManageArbor Solution has launched the ASLAN Series of widescreen industrial panel PCs. The ASLAN Series is designed to simultaneously connect sensors, machines and servers in a facility to optimize data management.

Designed for Industry 4.0 smart factory applications, each model is equipped with three Gigabit LAN ports, which simultaneously facilitate remote terminal unit (RTU) connections and machine-to-machine (M2M) communication between machines or factories and support company intranet and cloud connections.

Information generated by various manufacturing sources, sensors and communication with RTUs and/or other devices can be collected, processed and passed on to centralized production management through one LAN. A second LAN could allow the panel PC to integrate additional industrial equipment, enabling better M2M communication by means of exchanging information within buildings and remote locations. The third LAN could then be used to link servers via clouds and cloud-based applications, resulting in conclusive information for viewing and real-time control.

Each unit comes with an Intel J1900 Celeron Processor Quad-Core CPU, fanless cooling system, a widescreen LCD touch display with LED backlight and a number of I/O connections for expandability.

The front panels feature an anti-scratch surface and are IP65 compliant to withstand hazards such as dust and liquid splash. Units will operate in environments ranging from -4 degrees Fahrenheit to 140 degrees Fahrenheit.

The ASLAN series is available in three models with display sizes of 15.6 in., 18.5 in. and 21.5 in.

M2M technologies are making smart buildings even smarter, enabling increased building energy efficiency and money savings, according to research by Jones Lang LaSalle.
