Power Performance

The PIP5 is a highly integrated robust Industrial PC with a special designed EMC protected aluminum housing. The design integrates standard connectors for easy connection and inexpensive installation. The unit can be used for any PC Application where a complete solution is needed.

The PIP5  can be used in a standard or in a rugged operating environment and is 100% PC/AT compatible.

The PIP housing offers space for a hard disk or expansion if needed on the PC/104. Fully bootable Flash Disks are support for project where hard disks or floppy cannot be used.

Special efforts have been taken on the quality of the components and its long term availability (5 years). Another PIP specialty is the extreme low power consumption of the system. This allows to operate the system without fan or ventilation holes. Further can the PIP5 be used in applications where extended temperature is a must.

Certainly special precaution have been taken on the EMC on the total system to fulfill the CE and FCC requirements.

All these features and its reasonable cost make the PIP5 to the ideal solution for the industry where a flexible, rugged long term available complete Industrial PC is needed.

Extended Temperature Option

Reference Description
XTEST-2 extended temperature test -40° C up to +75° C

For deployment in harsh environments, the PIP5 can be ordered in an extended temperature version. Every system needs to pass various tests in a environmental chamber to prove that it will perform flawless over the temperature range indicated.
Please note: In order to get a system that will operate under these conditions, all additional selected components like hard disks or extension cards have to be specified or tested for conformity to the extended temperature range.
