Industrial and embedded computer manufacturer Logic Supply will introduce a new, small form factor, fanless and ventless industrial PC at this year’s Digital Signage Expo. Built around Intel‘s popular Next Unit of Computing (NUC), the CL100 Series is aimed at the industrial market, but includes a range of features well-suited to both commercial and consumer applications. The new computer joins the company’s growing line of ruggedized, purpose-built devices that offer enhanced reliability due to their solid state design and all-metal construction.
“We work with a wide array of industrial computing clients who are constantly sharing feedback about the type of hardware they need,” said Logic Supply solution specialist Justin Ballard, who will be on hand at DSE 2016 to present the CL100, and the rest of Logic Supply’s digital signage line to attendees. “In developing the CL100, we wanted to create a device that could be used virtually anywhere and provide reliable content delivery for digital signage installations. The CL100 is a great compact digital media player, but because of its size and connectivity options, it’s also flexible enough that it can be used for a host of other embedded and IoT applications.”
Developed with feedback from Logic Supply’s large network of industrial PC (IPC) users, the CL100 features a Quad-Core Intel Celeron N3150 processor with onboard Intel HD Graphics. The system can power triple independent displays or accommodate 4K resolution, making it ideally suited for digital signage, kiosk and other multimedia applications. Connectivity includes 3x USB 3.0, USB Type C, 2x HDMI, DisplayPort, and Gb LAN. The CL100 can be configured with up to 16GB of RAM and is Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capable. Operating system options include both Windows and Ubuntu Linux.
The CL100 utilizes Logic Supply’s unique Hardshell Fanless Technology, which combines proprietary solid state cooling, ingress protection and ruggedization to create ultra-reliable industrial computing platforms.
“Our clients demand more from our computers than your everyday, consumer-grade equipment could handle,” Ballard said. “Our hardware is used in environments that would cripple most PCs, everything from sawdust-filled woodshops to extreme-temperature manufacturing facilities. In these types of industrial settings, computer downtime can be extremely costly, so we engineer our systems with reliability always front of mind. The CL100 builds on that theme while remaining compact, versatile and aesthetically pleasing.”
The Logic Supply CL100 will be unveiled at this year’s Digital Signage Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada taking place March 16th and 17th at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The system will be on display at the Logic Supply booth, #2940. Visit https://www.logicsupply.com/company/events/dse2016 to schedule a time to speak with the team at DSE.
