ICP iEi (Germany) offers a fan-less marine computer with a 4th generation Intel Core i5 dual-core processor. The SBOX-100-QM87 can be employed as a platform for radar and navigations systems on ships.
THE FAN-LESS COMPUTER IS CERTIFIED according to IEC 60945 und DNV 2.4. With -15 °C to +55 °C, the PC works in a wide temperature range, as well as isolation protection, four EIA-232/422/485 isolated serial ports, and isolated 9 VDC to 36 VDC input. It also comes with two isolated CAN ports, two 2,5-inch SSD bay with RAID 0/1 function, and support for IEI iRIS-2400 (IPMI 2.0 compliant). Two 204-pin 1600/1333MHz dual-channel DDR3 SDRAMs support up to 16 GiB.
Three independent displays support combinations of VGA, DVI and HDMI via the onboard video output. This combination of display output options makes the marine system suitable for applications in the bridge room that require multi-monitors.
Ground loop and electric surges are common in the marine applications of electronic products, due to the dense placement of devices. These stray electrical signals can cause equipment damage or malfunction. The IEI Marine Computer is protected from stray electrical signals from other devices on the ship. Electric surges that are generated by other electronic devices, which often pass through serial lines to the marine computer, can cause serious malfunction. Severe damage to the computer could occur. This is why the CAN channels and the EIA-232/422/485 ports are isolated with 2,5 kV.
