An embedded PC fully packed with features has been introduced by Amplicon, the Impact-D 160. The new system offers increased computing power thanks to its Skylake processor, is I/O rich and security availability is greater than in previous models. End users can benefit from its small form factor, which is suited to applications in markets such as transportation, security and automation. Designed and built in the UK, the new Impact-D 160 from Amplicon will offer two processor options: i5 and i3.
Additionally, minimal design constraints enable the Impact-D 160 to be adapted and customised to suit a specific set of requirements for any application.
The unit offers both mSATA and a mechanical/solid-state drive capability for storage and OS requirements. Support of both cellular and WiFi connectivity allows you to 'stay connected' even if you lose the Gigabit Ethernet connections, ensuring maximum up-time.
The Impact-D 160 comes with four DB9 serial communications ports: two supporting mixed protocol (RS232, 422, 485) and two static RS232. This gives the unit ease of operation in both new and legacy applications for serial control.
Gavin Chalkley, Industrial Computing Product Specialist, Amplicon, commented: “The Impact-D 160 is an exceptionally compact and powerful unit designed and built by Amplicon to meet the most demanding applications where space is limited. We are confident our customers will find in these new units the perfect match to outperform in any application.”
