Automation applications are of critical importance, a computer failure can lead to expensive downtimes or product damage for a manufacturer. That is why it is very important that the used industrial PCs are based on reliable computer components.
Arcobel offers industrial embedded solutions for machine building and process automation. Thanks to our experience and knowledge, we are able to translate today's complex IT challenges into the right embedded solution.
Our product range includes IoT-ready industrial computer platforms, through which time to market and your TCO can be considerably reduced. We supply both standard and customer-specific industrial systems, including fanless box PCs, industrial board solutions, IPCs and panel PCs.
Industrial panel PCs are becoming increasingly important in the industry 4.0 era. Panel PCs must be user-friendly and intuitive to use. We have developed panel PCs for various customers in the mechanical engineering sector, which are used to control their MES or SCADA application. These ruggedized systems are resistant to the prevailing conditions of an industrial production environment. Depending on the application, these panel PCs are provided with a capacitive touch or resistive touch screen.
The industrial environmental conditions differ per application and are important factors in selecting the most suitable industrial PC. Extreme temperatures, shocks and vibrations occur regularly in such an environment. A rugged fanless box PC with high temperature resistance then offers the right solution. Arcobel has a wide selection of fanless embedded Box PCs in its product range for such circumstances. Despite the fanless design, these systems continue to operate optimally under extreme temperatures of -40 °C to -75 °C.
Automated inspections nowadays occur in all industries. 19 ”Vision systems are used to identify the presence/absence, deviations, colors and characteristics of products. They optimize product quality and ensure high-quality product safety. In addition to standard 19 ”systems, Arcobel also supplies customer-specific solutions. In collaboration with our suppliers our Engineers are able to develop a 100% form fit system for you. Components such as the PCB or I/O modules can be developed entirely based on your requirements.
In addition to solutions at a board level, we also supply electronic packaging systems for every thinkable configuration. Our supplier Heitec is known for its industrial expertise in the field of electronic packaging. All standard Heitec components comply with the IEC 60297 standards. This makes it possible to integrate these Heitec components into multi-vendor industrial embedded systems. In cooperation with Heitec, our engineers can develop special purpose solutions for your IT project.
Based on our expertise and experience a suitable component and manufacturer selection will be made. If you want to know more about what we can do for you as a system integrator, then please get in touch with us.
PanelPCs for Production Monitoring
For one of our customers active in the food industry, we provided a solution of 25 panelPCs for their MES application (MES=Manufacturing execution system of a continual character). The panelPC systems are Full ip65 which means they are easily cleanable. In addition, we built in an RFID scanner so the units can only be used by authorized users with an RFID tag.
19” Racks for Automatic Production Monitoring
We created a 2U 19”rack for a large multinational that we can deliver in identical form for a long period. This client uses the system as part of a production line system for the automated testing of end products. It was important for this system that all the I/O was located on the front side of the system.
Custom 1u industrial PC with 5 year identical hardware
We received a request from a potential customer to provide them a small high performance system with long term availability. This client mainly develops measurement systems for functional diagnostics of left/right- heart catheterization. The systems are fully integrated with a documentation and reporting system and interface with all X-ray manufacturers.
We introduced to them our Infinicore IPC system. This 1U system is equipped with a power full baseboard PWF controlled small fans and there is also space for an additional add on card. When we were in contact with the customer they would like to have small modifications to this system like removable dust filters and company logo and color.
Once approved by the customer and the certification agency’s this system will be rolled out in batches of 25 pieces up to 150 systems a year. Beside this system we also supply accessories like KVM switches, keyboards and displays.
