The robust Galaxy® G4-QM57 is designed specially for the harsh industrial environment. Thanks to its compact size of 149 x 260 x 280 mm, the computer can be installed flexibly in a control cabinet. To permit the fast access to all components, the drive bay and the connections are located on the front side of the industrial housing. Two 8-cm temperature-controlled system fans ensure the optimum ventilation of the housing, irrespective of the positioning of the control cabinet. The operating temperature range is 0° to +45° C.
To expand the system with short, commercially-available supplementary modules, e.g. for CAN bus and other fieldbus cards, or with customer-specific controller cards, the control cabinet PC provides three free PCI slots and one PCI Express™ x1 slot. As an option, four PCI slots can also be implemented. The 3.5-inch drive bay is designed to accept a 160 GB, 3.5-inch SATA II 300 standard hard disk (or larger). The housing provides space for one 2.5-inch HDD or SSD (Solid State Drive). As an option, a 2.5-inch HDD, a Compact Flash or an SSD can be installed in the 3.5-inch drive bay instead of the HDD. The Galaxy® G4-QM57 also provides an internal mini-PCI Express™ x1 slot.
The control cabinet PC provides a wide range of interfaces, including ten USB 2.0 ports (eight external and two internal), a serial RS232 port, HD audio and two fast GigaBit LAN interfaces. On request, Wireless LAN 802.11b/g/n can also be supported. As an option, four serial ports (three of which are on the slot plate) can be implemented. VGA, DVI-I and DVI-D with a maximum resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels are available as graphic interfaces.
A built-in 180 W power pack with 100 – 240 V input voltage or optionally a 24 VDC power pack with 200 W rating supplies power to the box IPC. The control cabinet PC is installed in a solid, high-quality industrial housing that, on request, can be supplied in any color requested by the customer, even with the company logo.
