tBox311Axiomtek rolls out the tBOX311-820-FL, an in-vehicle rugged embedded box system incorporating low power consumption Intel Atom processor Z520PT 1.33GHz with Intel US15WPT chipset.

Especially designed to fit vehicle applications, it is certified with an eMark and ISO-7637 standard. Built with numerous robust features, this IP40-rated unit is ideal for mobile surveillance, fleet management, toll systems, intersection traffic control and much more.

"The sleek box computer is an application-ready embedded platform enabling fast time-to-market for market operators," said Ethan Wang product manager at Axiomtek’s product and marketing division.

"To withstand extreme working temperatures, Axiomtek has equipped this fanless unit to perform in temperatures ranging from -40°C to +65°C. Its CompactFlash and HDD drive bay on the front side is swap-friendly and allows easy maintenance.

"In addition, the tBOX311-820-FL features one isolated CAN bus port and one isolated COM port for standard industrial communication. The unique isolated port design prevents ESD (electrostatic discharge) and over-voltage by offering magnetic isolation protection."

Application-ready solution
The rugged all-in-one tBOX311-820-FL is certified with an eMark for in-vehicle equipment and it is ISO-7637 certified for vehicle power requirement. In addition, the embedded system supports 80W intelligent vehicle power supply for any in-vehicle environment.

Easy connection and access
The tBOX311-820-FL offers one isolated CAN bus port for use in vehicles, to connect the engine control unit and one isolated COM port for device connectivity. The swappable and front-accessible CompactFlash socket and HDD drive bay is convenient for easy maintenance and system upgrades.

Industrial-grade design to fit any extreme applications
This compact unit adopts an IP40-rated and rugged aluminum and cold-rolled steel enclosure. Its significant anti-vibration design can endure up to 2Grms with CF and HDD.

To withstand extreme working temperatures, its fanless operation design has a unique thermal solution that allows it to operate noiseless at temperatures ranging from -40°C to +65°C.

The AtomTM-powered embedded platform delivers high-bandwidth expansion capability with three PCI express mini card slots, one SIM slot for system configurations, such as GPS, GSM/GPRS, WiFi, WiMAX, Bluetooth, HSDPA and more.

One 200-pin DDR2 SO-DIMM socket supports up to 2GB DRAM for high system memory bandwidth. Rich I/O connections include four high-speed USB 2.0 ports, dual gigabit ethernet ports, VGA, audio, as well as a built-in watchdog timer to reset the system after a crash or system error.

Axiomtek tBOX311-820-FL can be DIN-rail mounted, wall mounted or stand mounted and is available from the middle of June.
