OnLogic has introduced a range of rugged industrial computers, the Karbon Series, to the UK market.
The Karbon Series is shock and vibration resistant, has a wide operating temperature, high configurability and custom I/O options. The series includes the small form factor Karbon 300 and the GPU capable Karbon 700.
Michael Kleiner, VP of Engineering at OnLogic, is the engineer who led the development effort for these new systems. He explained, “The Karbon series was created by pushing the limits of what a rugged computer could be. Our systems were designed to solve even the most complex challenges of users by creating a modular platform that ensured flexibility and versatility without sacrificing reliability or making the cost of the systems too high.”
European factories, machine builders, rail and public transport, autonomous vehicles and artificial intelligence applications increasingly require powerful computing solutions to power their latest innovations. The Karbon series has been built to meet this need – offering high-quality and extremely reliable solutions with high performance.
The Karbon Series is built in and shipped from the Netherlands. OnLogic says this ensures fast delivery and assembly within the European market.
The Karbon 300: compact performance
The Karbon 300 brings rugged industrial computing in a small form factor. It can withstand 50G of impact force and 500Hz of vibration. In addition, it has a wide operating temperature range of -25°C ~ 70°C, and features modular customisation options which allow users to push rugged industrial IoT projects even further. It has a height of 5.6 centimeters, so can be installed in locations where space is limited.
The Karbon 700: expanded capabilities
The Karbon 700 has the same core capabilities of the Karbon 300, but it has been adapted for situations where more power is needed. It adds more features and stronger processing, with up to Intel i7 and Intel Xeon CPUs. The Karbon 700-SE has room for I/O Expansion and offers a PCIe slot to add mini ITX GPUs. When even more power is needed, the Karbon 700-X2 can be configured with full height GPUs. Additional options include AI accelerators and PoE.
