【New Product Launch】Advantech’s TPC Series of Modular Industrial Panel PCs Provide Revolutionary HMI Solutions

Date: 3/9/2017 12:00:00 AM

Taipei, Taiwan, November 2016 – Advantech, a leading industrial computing platform provider, is pleased to announce its TPC series of modular industrial panel PCs. With the arrival of Industry 4.0, and the resulting shift in market demands, conventional all-in-one automation panels lack the flexibility to meet industry requirements. To address this need, Advantech created its TPC series of modular panel PC solutions based on three performance-segmented models — a control panel (TPC-5000), industrial thin-client (TPC-2000), and web terminal (TPC-1000). The modular design of the TPC series allows the computing modules to be interchangeably combined with Advantech’s display modules (available in 5 sizes) to provide up to 15 flexible platform solutions for specific field applications. These platforms can be rapidly customized and easily configured according to usage requirements. Customers can choose from a thin-client or standard box PC equipped with an Intel® Atom™ or Core™ i processor, analog resistive single-touch or projected capacitive multi-touch displays, as well as over 30 I/O expansion modules in order to assemble the ideal solution based on their exact specifications.

The incredible flexibility, serviceability, and modularity of Advantech’s TPC series offer numerous performance and cost-saving advantages, including complete HMI control and monitoring, customization according to application requirements, rapid integration and deployment, reduced system downtime and maintenance costs, and support for future expansion. Moreover, with features such as wide temperature support, an IP66-rated true-flat front panel with built-in Wi-Fi/NFC antenna, anti-scratch surface, and optional NFC reader, Advantech’s display panels are ideal for both industrial and commercial applications.

TPC-5000 – Control Panel for High-End Control Demands

The control panel is equipped with a 6th Generation Intel® Core™ i processor, which delivers up to 20% superior computing performance. The inclusion of three Gigabit LANs facilitates IT and OT bridging as well as multi-protocol communication and communication redundancy. A built-in TPM 2.0 module provides hardware-based security to ensure data integrity and secure transfers across diverse platforms.

Key Features

  • 6th Generation Intel® Core™ i3-6100U processor
  • Optimized rugged housing for industrial applications
  • iDOOR, PCIe, removable SSD, M.2, and front-facing wireless antenna for flexible expansion
  • TPM, MRAM, 3 x GbE, isolation power design for control software compatibility
  • IEC 61010-2 and IEC 60950-2 compliant
  • Supports panel mounting by default and VESA mounting upon request

TPC-2000 – Industrial Thin-Client for Process Management and Execution Systems

Advantech’s thin-client box module features a low-power consumption Intel® Atom™ processor that satisfies green requirements and can support a secondary display for increased monitoring flexibility. With its compact and slim dimensions and HTML5 compatibility, this thin-client box provides a space saving, economical platform that facilitates the centralized management of multiple devices and enables rapid interface development.

Key Features

  • Intel® Atom™ x5-E3940 processor
  • Compact and slim universal design ensures flexible installation

TPC-1000 – Industrial Web Terminal for Data Acquisition and Communication

This industrial web terminal solution enables convenient operation via HTML-based web browsers, eliminating the need to install software on client devices. Powered by an Atom™ or RISC computing platform and featuring a flexible modular design, TPC-1000 can be easily upgraded with diverse panel and platform modules at minimal cost. With the inclusion of SCADA software, TPC-1000 offers the ideal solution for significantly increasing operating efficiency.

Key Features

  • Supports HTML5-based web browsers 
  • Cost-effective, low-power Atom™ or RISC computing platform 
  • Flexible modular design for easy upgrades and maintenance
