Industry 4.0-compliant Smart Panel PC

NEXCOM has upgraded the applied panel PC (APPC) series with Intel® Atom™ processor E3800 product family to realize the smart factory envisioned by the Industry 4.0. NEXCOM APPC series features powerful graphics capability, larger system memory, support for fieldbus networking, and robust fanless design. The APPC series can provide system control, process visualization, fieldbus connectivity, and wireless networking required for smart factory operation.

To allow centralized monitoring and management of smart factory operations, NEXCOM Applied Panel PC series is powered by Intel® Atom™ processor E3800 product family and integrated with Intel® HD Graphics. Built with 4GB of DDR3L, the APPC series has a system memory twice as large as most competing products and is expandable to 8GB. Also, the APPC series supports fieldbus networking with PROFINET, PROFIBUS, DeviceNet, EtherNet/IP and EtherCAT expansion modules and can run CODESYS SoftLogic, JMobile HMI, and Citect SCADA software.


Moreover, the APPC series is enhanced to ensure system reliability. The APPC series has 2.5KV isolation protection on the COM ports to protect the APPCs and the connected peripheral from voltage spikes. The fanless design and the IP65-rated front panel can prevent ingress of water and dust. For use in different factory settings, the APPC series supports 12~30VDC power input and is prepared for EN61000-6-1 and EN61000-6-3 industrial EMC testing. Factories can also benefit from the APPCs’ low power consumption and support for remote power control; these features help not only increase system reliability but also save energy.


NEXCOM Applied Panel PC series uses 12”, 15”, 17, and 19” NEXCOM APPD industrial touch monitors which share the same outlook design and cutout dimension with the APPC series and support up to SXGA resolution (1280 x 1024).
