UNO-148 Scalable Tiger Lake DIN-Rail Control PC available from Impulse Embedded

  • Low-power, high-performance 11th Gen Tiger Lake Intel Core processors
  • 2kV isolated I/O and wide input voltage ideal for industrial control applications
  • 2.5GigE LAN supports Intel Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) for real-time, low latency communications
  • DIN-rail mountable, fanless, and compact

Impulse Embedded, a leading provider of industrial computing systems and solutions, can now supply the UNO-148 the latest addition to Advantech’s UNO-1 series of IoT gateway devices bringing Intel 11th Gen Tiger Lake Core power to their range of compact DIN-rail mountable industrial computers.

Built to run Windows 10 IoT or Ubuntu 20.4 Linux, with industrial features like isolated serial and digital I/O, plus wide input voltage and operating temperature ranges, the UNO-148 is suitable for a host of true industrial applications including factory automation, traffic management, and robotic control.

The UNO-148 comes with a choice of the 11th Gen Core i7, i5, or i3 processors and features two SO-DIMM memory slots which come populated with 8GB of DDR4 3200MHz, but can be upgraded up to 64GB. In keeping with the fast memory and high-performance processing capabilities, the UNO-148 also features an M.2 2280 M-key slot for NVMe SSDs and an independent 2.5Gigabit Ethernet controller, capable of real-time communication for low latency applications like robotics and PLC control. Furthermore, the UNO-148 features two Gigabit Ethernet ports, an M.2 2230 E-key slot for the latest WiFi 6 wireless expansion cards, and an M.2 3042/3052 B-key slot that can be used to install high speed, low latency 5G cellular modules.

Like other UNO-1 series embedded computers, the UNO-148 is DIN-rail mountable, fanless, and compact in size. When combined with its flexible communication options and wide power input range (9V to 36V DC), the UNO-148 can be installed easily into control cabinets anywhere on site. With wide -20°C to +60°C operating temperature support as standard, the UNO-148 further shows its suitability for harsh industrial environments. Packed with I/O, the UNO-148 has four RS-232/422/485 serial ports, all with 2.5kV isolation, 16-channel DIO (8-in/8-out) again with 2.5kV isolation as standard, three 10Gbps USB3.2 Gen2 ports and two DisplayPort interfaces.

To further tailor the UNO-148 to the specific needs and requirements of any application, Advantech have provided a modular design function via a choice of two expansion plug-in modules:

The UNO-148-IS2EA features a 2.5″ SSD storage bay and an iDoor expansion port. Advantech’s iDoor Technology utilises a standard miniPCIe port to allow customers the flexibility of I/O expansion with a wide series of modules supporting a range of Fieldbus and other comms functions like serial and Ethernet.

The UNO-148-P11EA also provides PCIe x4 expansion slots for adding a PCI Express card for additional DAQ, comms and I/O capability.

Both of these modules allow customers to fully customise the base unit with the specific I/O for their application demands. This flexibility is key in making the UNO-148 a multi-use control PC for a wide range of industrial computing applications.

Impulse Embedded has over 20 years designing, building, and supporting embedded computing solutions and can fully configure the UNO-148 DIN-rail automation control PC to any specification in their UK based engineering facility. Options include the choice of memory, storage, peripherals and embedded operating system.

With their Embedded Systems capabilities, Impulse creates reliable, repeatable, and revision controlled systems which can reduce project costs and development time. Their team of in-house engineers and specialists, all with decades of experience, can offer fully deployable embedded computing solutions straight out of the box.

Sensor Technologies Here to Stay: Post-pandemic

Sponsored by Infineon

Today sensor technology has become integral to our everyday lives. And in the future, sensor technology will mean even more than it does today. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with David Jones from Infineon about the future of sensor technologies and how they are going to impact our lives in the post-pandemic world. They investigate how miniaturization, built-in antennas in-package and the evolution of radar technology have helped usher in a whole new era of sensing technologies and how all of this and more will help us live healthier and happier lives.
