Compact & rugged fanless embedded computers

ADLINK Technology has released its MXE-3000 fanless embedded computer with rich integrated I/O. Equipped with the Intel® Atom™ D510 1.66 GHz processor, the MXE-3000 delivers twice the performance of the previous N270 platform, meeting high-performance computing needs at all times. Featuring maximum operating shock tolerance up to 100 G, minimal footprint with a small profile, and unique thermal design with zero cable management requirements, the MXE-3000 provides reliable performance in mission critical and harsh environments for a variety of applications.

Leveraging the advantages of enhanced RF function, dedicated I/O features, 9-32 VDC wide range power input, and LVDS & VGA dual display support, the MXE-3000 with ease of mounting capability – VESA or DIN rail, is an ideal match for diverse applications such as intelligent transportation, medication management, digital signage, factory automation, and logistic applications, and especially in automated guided vehicle systems.

With changes in market trend from toward smaller fanless configurations, the MXE-3000’s compact 210 mm (W) x 170 mm (D) x 53 mm (H) size suits it ideally for applications requiring limited storage space and demanding zero-noise, dustproof performance. A unique cable-free structure and extended temperature functionality enable the MXE-3000 series to greatly benefit customers with high-performance computing, lowered total cost of ownership, and long-term durability.

“The ability to withstand harsh environmental factors is critical for in-vehicle computing applications requiring a reliable platform in semi-outdoor environments. In task-driven industries such as warehousing, factory automation, and harbor automation, the MXE-3000 can be deployed on vehicles like trucks, lifters, or trailers for efficient transport. The MXE-3000 further provides value-added material management. In one example, inventories can be recorded while simultaneously transferring goods. Utilizing proven RFID and Wi-Fi technologies, the in-vehicle retrieves cargo information via reader and relays it wirelessly to the control center for dependable online cargo management.” noted Kenny Chang, director of ADLINK’s I/O platform center.
