Extremely Rugged Computer Solution (PIP40 Family)

[PIP40 Rugged Embedded Computer with 9th Gen Processor]

based on Intel® 9th Generation Processor

The PIP40 Product Family is a high performance, low power and highly integrated Rugged Embedded Computer, based in the latest Intel technology. The solution is available in a compact aluminum housing with DIN-Rail or Flange mount, a rugged MIL IP67 enclosure, a 19” rack system or an open frame solution with cooling plate. All configurable depending on your application or needs. The design integrates standard connectors for easy connection or lockable headers, depending on housing choice or needs.

PIP40 Family Highlights

The PIP housings offer sufficient space for 2.5” SSD or other expansions like UPS, RAID..). Two mPCIe and three m.2 slots allow to expand the system very easy. The internal expansion bus allows to integrate PCIe/104 or PCIe cards. These expansion possibilities give a maximum on customization for additional interfaces and features. Particular precautions during the design have been taken that the entire system EMC is within the CE and FCC limits and standards like EN50155, IEC 60945 or MIL-STD-810 can be met.
