【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, January 2018 – Advantech, a leading industrial computing platform provider, is pleased to announce its 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 a series of modular panel PC solutions based on three performance-segmented models — a control panel (TPC-5000), industrial thin-client (TPC-2000), and industrial monitor (FPM-7000). The modular design of Advantech’s solutions allows the computing modules to be interchangeably combined with various 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 an industrial 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 industrial panel PCs 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 TPC-5000 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

  • Intel® Celeron® J3455 or Intel® Atom™ E3940 (2018 Q2) processor ·         
  • Compact, universal design with low power consumption ·         
  • Industrial-grade, wide operating temperature range -20 ~ 60 °C (Atom™ E3940) ·        
  •  PXE boot ready to facilitate centralized management of multiple devices ·         
  • Supports M.2 storage and an optional iDOOR communication module ·         
  • Supports panel mounting by default and VESA mounting upon request ·         
  • Bundled with Advantech’s WISE PaaS/RMM software platform for asset management

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® Celeron® J3455 or Intel® Atom™ E3940 (2018 Q2) processor
  • Compact, universal design with low power consumption
  • Industrial-grade, wide operating temperature range -20 ~ 60 °C (Atom™ E3940)
  • PXE boot ready to facilitate centralized management of multiple devices 
  • Supports M.2 storage and an optional iDOOR communication module
  • Supports panel mounting by default and VESA mounting upon request 
  • Bundled with Advantech’s WISE PaaS/RMM software platform for asset management

FPM-7000 – Industrial Monitor for Data Acquisition and Communication

The FPM-7000 industrial monitor is a visualization interface designed to enable efficient human-machine interaction. The modular design allows the video I/O to be flexibly configured and the base monitor module to be interchangeably combined with display panel modules of varying size, ensuring suitability for diverse applications. Additionally, FPM-7000 is equipped with Advantech’s iLINK technology, which supports long-distance (up to 100 m) data transmissions to either a single client device or multiple (up to 4) client devices. Furthermore, the wiring has been simplified so only a single LAN CAT6 cable is required for both connectivity and control operations.             

Key Features

  • Supports both 4:3 and 16:9 display ratios 
  • Supports dual displays and control with Picture-in-Picture functionality 
  • Module-in-Module design with customizable I/O 
  • iLINK technology enables long-distance (up to 100 m) one-to-one/one-to-many (up to 4) data transmissions
