Noax IPCs with Mainboards

The noax IPC has a 1.86 GHz dual-core processor to increase overall performance when used withcomplete production control systems or complex process visualizationconfigurations. Speed is provided by 8 GByte of RAM operating in dual-channelmode. Especially for visualization tasks the noax hardware has a high-performanceDirectX-10-compatible graphics controller. This allows users to clearly displaycomplex processes or comprehensive CAD files in 3D.

To accelerate communication between noax industrialPCs and peripheral devices, the new generation of IPCs offers a flexible plugsetup that allows you to choose between the high-performance PCI Express andthe normal PCI bus. There are two PCI slots - one for PCI and one for PCIExpress - or two PCI Express slots. This configuration can also be adapted inthe future by swapping out the slots to meet changing needs. Users benefit fromthe flexibility of being able to continue using existing PCI components withouthaving to forego the performance of PCI Express cards. The noax mainboards havetwo Gigabit Ethernet interfaces that are connected to the chip set via PCIExpress slots. Users can double Ethernet speeds by bundling. On the other,networks can be separated, for example a company network from a plant network.The redundant connection also increases security. If one connection fails, datatransmissions will be automatically continued without interruption through theother connection.

With noax you can install multiple physical harddrives at any time, all organized according to RAID functionality. Ifindividual components fail, the RAID setup maintains overall integrity andfunctionality, therefore guaranteeing continued IPC operation. Communication betweenthe hard drive and the processor is driven by SATA technology, which enablesthe exchange of storage media during operation.

The noax mainboards come equipped with amicrocontroller, which automatically adjusts the brightness of the display andmonitors other parameters such as voltage and temperature. Different powersupply cables can handle voltages between 9 and 240 V.The new noax mainboard has a total of six USB ports, two of which run onstand-by power.

All noax IPCs are still available in protectionclasses IP65 to IP69. Neither dust nor liquids can endanger the interiorcomponents. All of noax IPC components are attached without cable connections.Even powerful vibrations do not affect the operation of these devices. New noaxIPCs also remain flexible with regard to operational environment. They functionin temperatures from -30 to +45C.
