Polywell Mini PCs for IoT and industry

The requirements for industrial computers, and even the concept itself, have changed over time. If in the 1990s and even in the 2000s, the industrial computer was associated primarily with the ability to work in extremely adverse environmental conditions (under the influence of high and low temperatures, shock, vibration, high humidity, etc.), now everything has changed.

No one expects an industrial PC to operate at -20° C or on a vibrating rail anymore. Their operating conditions are getting closer and closer to room conditions, although the relevance of a certain class of devices capable of working in harsh conditions still remains.

Nevertheless, the notion of an “industrial” PC is increasingly shifting towards function. That is, industrial PCs are primarily designed to serve and control industrial manufacturing processes in the broadest sense of the word. By industrial application is meant, not only the work in the hot shop, but also other industrial, as well as transport, storage, retail and similar applications.

Therefore, the main requirement for industrial PCs today is increasingly high reliability. Expansion slots for additional cards, as well as I/O ports, primarily RS232/RS485 and USB, are also of great importance.

This is important for embedded systems as well as for external process controllers.

The rapid development of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the convergence of information (IT) and operating technologies (OT) is causing a high demand for miniature, inexpensive and reliable local calculators equipped with a large number of I/O ports. Polywell Computers products meet these requirements perfectly.

Industrial mini PCs from Polywell Computers are highly reliable due to the use of industrial grade components (not commercial grade). They are specifically designed to run 365/24. Unlike many competitors, Polywell Computers openly publishes mean time between failures (MTBF) values for its systems. This is typically 100,000 hours.

Some systems have PCI-e and miniPCI-e expansion slots. There are mini PCs with a significant number of USB ports as well as RS232/RS485 ports. Some industrial mini PCs are fanless, which accounts for their low power consumption and quiet operation.

These features of Polywell Computers Industrial Mini PCs make them very popular among system integrators and companies operating industrial facilities and networks.

Selection of PCs for IoT and industry by filter

Here you can select your system according to 32 parameters.

Start with the factor that is most important to you by selecting the appropriate value from the drop-down list. Products will be filtered and a list of systems that meet your first criterion will be provided. You can then specify other factors that are important to you. The first selection will be filtered through the subsequent factors one by one. It will show how many systems meet the criteria you set.

You can start over at any time by pressing either of the two “Reset” buttons.
