The embedded PC is a fanless and very compact PC-system that opens up many possible applications due to numerous interfaces and a comprehensive software range that comes along with the device. It can serve as a Master for EtherCAT and CAN-bus control. Moreover, it might be deployed as a PLC with integrated IOs or a remote access unit with an Ethernet / EtherCAT interface.

The ePC’s chipsets of the Atom family are known for a high energy efficiency and little heat waste. It has 512 MB to 2 GB RAM onboard for small to complex operations. Instead of a usual HDD the ePC uses CFast which is the faster successor of Compact Flash – the system can also be booted over this interface. The advantage is a data transfer speed of up to 3 GBit/sec. A full metal housing together with the specific memory and CPU provides optimal EMV-capabilities and passive cooling event at high temperatures. The ePC incorporates many interfaces for a maximum of flexibility. There are CAN, Ethernet (EtherCAT-capable), digital inputs and outputs, DVI and USB available.
