Check out the TPC-5000 Series! Advantechs First Modular Industrial Panel PC for High Expandability
The TPC-5000 is the first modularized model of Advantech’s control panel products. Equipped with a low-power 6th Gen Intel® Core™ i processor, 8 GB of DDR4 SODIMM memory,and an industrial-grade LCD, TPC-5000 is a compact fanless system that provides a display panel solution with excellent computing performance. The modularized design ensures flexible expansion and configuration, as well as easy maintenance and upgrades. To withstand a wide-range of environments, the system also features an IP66-rated front panel for water and dust resistance, a glass panel with 7H surface harness that supports projected capacitive or 5-wire resistive touch control, and a robust system enclosure with die-cast aluminum alloy front bezel. To satisfy a wide range of industrial automation applications, the TPC-5000’s box module supports flexible expansion with the inclusion of iDoor technology (optional), 3 x LANs with redundancy and multiple fieldbus protocol support, MRAM and TPM 2.0 technology for ensuring data security, and an isolated power design with LAN surge protection to ensure safe system upgrades. Additionally, the TPC-5000’s panel module can be fitted with an optional Wi-Fi/NFC module to enhance wireless communication.
Why Modularise Your TPC?
Three selectable box modules (Thin-client/Control Panel/Monitor) for different requirements.
Maintaining the system simply removing the computing box. No need to unmount the whole unit from cabinet. And simply send out the defect module for repair.
Touch designed to fast adapt to different logo requirements. Panel and box are in individual modules, faster to customize either one and adapt it to standard module.
Easy and economical replacement. Only need to upgrade computing boxes when technology advances.
Advantech is pleased to announce TPC-5212W
– a 21.5” full HD modular industrial panel PC. With the arrival of Industry 4.0 and the resulting shift in market demands, conventional all-in-one panel PCs lack the flexibility to meet industry requirements. To address this need, Advantech created its TPC series of modular panel PC solutions, the first of which is TPC-5212W
. Aimed at control applications, TPC-5212W
is equipped with a low-power, fanless 6th generation Intel® Core™ i3-6100u processor, 8 GB of DDR4 SODIMM memory, and an industrial-grade TFT LCD to provide a high-performance display panel solution. In addition to a compact modular design, the system’s inclusion of PCIe expansion ports and iDoor integration ensure high expandability and scalable functionality. For enhanced wireless communication, an NFC/RFID module with antenna is embedded in the front bezel to ensure reliable signal recognition. Furthermore, TPC-5212W
also features three 3xGbE LAN ports with redundancy and multiple fieldbus protocol support, MRAM and TPM 2.0 technology for data security, as well as isolated power with LAN surge protection, making it the ideal solution for a wide range of industrial automation applications, such as machining multi-task control, SCADA/Fieldbus software control, vision inspection, and surveillance.
Modular Highly Expandable Design Enables Rapid Customization
With increasing market demand for product variation and mass customization, modularity is fast becoming the new standard for next-generation solutions. The incredible flexibility of the TPC-5212W
’s modular design offers numerous performance and cost-saving advantages, including rapid customization according to specific application requirements, easy integration and deployment, and high serviceability and future expandability for long lifecycles. The commonality of components allows customers to produce multiple products using the same solutions, thereby accelerating development and shortening the time to market, while also ensuring a long product lifecycle. Moreover, rather than sending the entire system for repair, customers only need to replace faulty components, drastically reducing system downtime and interruptions to production.
Optimized Design with Multi-Protocol Support for Increased Connectivity
is equipped with three 3xGbE LAN ports with Intel® chipset support to facilitate IT and OT bridging as well as multi-protocol communication and communication redundancy. Two of the three LAN ports also support CODESYS software to enable extensive connection and networking with OT layer devices for integrating and transmitting OT layer data (PLC, server) to IT layer systems (ERP), making it easy and convenient to develop OT to IT solutions. The TPC-5212W
front panel is also embedded with a Wi-Fi/NFC module for rapid signal recognition to provide the enhanced wireless connectivity necessary for efficient productivity.
Built-In TPM 2.0 Technology Offers Enhanced Security for IIoT
also features a built-in TPM 2.0 module that provides hardware-based encryption and control on boot to ensure data integrity and secure transfers across diverse platforms. In addition to offering increased security for industrial IoT and Industry 4.0 applications, the inclusion of TPM technology enables production tracking with the provision of device history records. TPM can also be used as a replacement for smart cards, reducing associated costs and allowing customers to add value by integrating Advantech’s iDoor modules.
