Innovator for Industrial PC (IPC) and embedded computing solutions, associate member of the Intel Internet of Things (IoT) Solutions Alliance, and subsidiary of Portwell, Mitwell, has announced the launch of the KUBE-3100. Mitwell’s new industrial computer platform KUBE-3100 comes in a robust fan-less design and features the latest Intel Atom processor N3350 with up to eight gigabytes (DDR3L 1866) of memory. 

The KUBE-3100 benefits from approximately 30% more processing power and 45% more graphics performance compared to the previous processor generation and provides the high-performance Intel Gen9 graphics with up to 18 execution units and support up to three independent high-resolution 4k displays via two DP and LVDS which can be used for Panel PC integration.

Its rugged and compact design (158×145×49mm), plus low power consumption, make the KUBE-3100 a solution to support applications for kiosk, image processing, digital signage, medical and the harsh environments of factory automation.

For local data acquisition, the new KUBE-3100 offers a broad range of industrial interfaces such as two Gb industrial Ethernet (Intel i210), two USB 3.0, two USB 2.0, two RS-232 and one BIOS configurable (RS232/422/485) serial interfaces. 

The M.2 Key-B, interface for SSD and a mini-PCIe with mSATA round the storage and extension capabilities up. The mini-PCIe interface additionally provides wireless connectivity such as WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC (near-field communication) and LTE/GPS functionalities, making it an ideal IoT gateway solution. 

The compact system (is very service friendly. Moreover, it operates with thermal design power (TDP) under 12W for fan-less applications and supports a power input of 24VDC+/- 20% for rugged applications. 

For the use in demanding environment, the KUBE-3100 meets the Heavy Industry requirements of EN61000-6-4 (EMI) and the EMS standards IEC 61000-4-2, 4-3, 4-4, 4-5, 4-6, and 4-8 which includes extended RS, EFT and CS criteria compared to the general Industry standard. This makes the KUBE-3100 a fit for applications like Equipment connectivity, Production process monitoring, Environment Management and Process Visualisation.
