Onlogic has announced four industrial and rugged fanless computing platforms powered by the Intel Atom x6000E, Celeron N, and Pentium J series processors formerly known as Elkhart Lake. The Helix 300 series comes with CAN optionally.
Onlogic is a global industrial computer hardware manufacturer and IoT (Internet of Things) solution provider. The Helix 310, Helix 330, Karbon 410, and Karbon 430 join the company’s line of customizable, passively cooled devices for use in Industry 4.0 applications.
"We've been working with Intel for over a decade to build solutions for the ever-evolving Industrial IoT landscape," said Onlogic VP of Engineering Michael Kleiner. "Helix 300 and Karbon 400 have been engineered to take advantage of the new features built into the latest generation of Intel processors to enhance IoT functionality. From machine learning and artificial intelligence, to advanced Scada or networking, the combination of Intel technology and the plethora of configuration possibilities we've built into these systems means users can tailor a platform to their exact needs. The specialized solutions our clients will build with these news platforms promise to change the way goods are made, data is acted upon, and business is done in virtually every industry."
IoT-specific features of the Helix 300 and Karbon 400 series include the Intel programmable services engine (Intel PSE). The Intel PSE is a dedicated offload engine for IoT workloads powered by an ARM Cortex-M7 micro-controller, which enables real-time computing. The systems also leverage Onlogic's Modbay expansion technology, which allows users to customize systems with additional connectivity options via available M.2 and mPCIe slots.
Like most of the company’s devices, the systems will be available to configure and purchase directly from their website, or by working with their global team of solution providers. Each of the four devices will be configurable with a range of Windows or Linux operating systems and can be paired with the company’s suite of OEM (original equipment manufacturers) services, including custom branding, software imaging, custom fulfilment services, and lifecycle management support.
The Helix 300 series harnesses the enhanced power and capabilities of Intel's latest Celeron and Pentium processors in a low profile fanless system built for the challenges of the IoT edge. The products come with support for triple independent 4 000 displays, a 0 °C to +50 °C operating temperature range, and configuration options. Features and specifications include dual-core Celeron N6211 or quad-core Pentium J6425 CPU (central processing unit), up to 32 GiB memory, as well as 12-V to 24-V power input. An optional feature is a CAN network. The Helix 330 model comes equipped with two additional Gb LAN ports.
The Karbon 400 series builds on the capabilities of the Helix 300 and adds additional environmental protections. The two rugged models, the Karbon 410 and Karbon 430 can be configured with either the dual-core Intel Atom X6211E or quad-core Atom X6425E CPU. Built-in modularity allows users to choose the connectivity and capabilities needed for their application. With an operating temperature range of -40 C° to +70 °C, fanless cooling, and variable power input, the series has been engineered to thrive in challenging environments. The Karbon 430 model features two additional M.2 2280 slots, which can be used to equip additional storage, wireless connectivity, or I/O. The Karbon 430 also offers an additional SIM card slot, enabling multi-carrier cellular connectivity configuration. Both, the series’ are expected to be available for purchase in quarter two.
