MSC Technologies presents scalable rail-mounted PC for the electrical cabinet

(PresseBox) (Stutensee, Germany, ) MSC Technologies, a business unit of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), presents the modular rail-mounted H1-A3 PC family that thanks to the flexible replacement of its integrated 70 x 70 mm Qseven™ module can be scaled in its performance data and technical features. The flexible box PC is designed for reliable deployment as gateway and communications computer, Web server or decentralized control unit for plant control, process automation, power engineering, building automation, smart metering and E-Mobility applications.

The compact H1-A3 industrial computer is only 90 mm high and 41 mm deep (55 mm with cooling fins). Its standardized installation option allows it to be installed very easily and quickly in electrical and control cabinets. With a width of 124 mm (7 height pitch), the robust, high-quality aluminum housing can be installed under the rail-mounted standard cover.

The Qseven™ module deployed in the H1-A3 is based on the Intel® Atom™ processor technology (former codenamed Baytrail). The highest-performance embedded module integrates the Intel® Atom™ E3827 dual-core processor with 1.75 GHz clock, 2 GB fast DDR3L cache and 4 GB eMMC flash memory. As alternative, the board can be equipped with the Intel® Atom™ E3826 or E3815 processor with 4 GB eMMC flash memory or 16 GB SATA SSD (Solid State Drive) storage. On request, the module can be equipped with an onboard 64 GB SSD.

The MSC Technologies industrial computer offers as interfaces not only two fast Gbit LAN connections (USB 3.0 and USB 2.0), but also a Mini PCI-Express™ interface with mSATA support, an RS232 and two optically isolated RS485 interfaces. If required, an additional RS232 interface can be provided. The VGA interface can be used to connect a control monitor for commissioning and maintenance purposes. The 24 VDC power supply is provided as insulation-piercing plug connector.

The rail-mounted PC H1-A3 operates without a fan in the temperature range 0° - 45° C. At an airflow of 1 m/s, the computer can run reliably in continuous operation at temperatures up to 55° C. POS Ready 7, Windows® 7 embedded and Windows® 7 are supported as operating system.
