Dell Unveils its first purpose-built industrial PC Products – Embedded Box PC 3000 Series and 5000 Series
Dell today announced the launch of its first purpose-built industrial PC (IPC) products, Embedded Box PC 3000 Series and 5000 Series. Dell’s Embedded Box PCs are fanless, important as the fan is the often most common component failure in embedded use cases, and also ideal for environments that require little noise. They are highly reliable devices that can be used headless or with keyboard, mouse and monitor. Flexible and powerful, with extensive wired and wireless input/output (I/O) options, they run on Intel processors.
The Dell Embedded Box PC 3000 Series is powered by Intel Atom processors and designed for space-constrained applications, such as retail kiosks, automated vending devices and vehicles. The Dell Embedded Box PC 5000 Series is optimized for performance and I/O scalability. Powered by Intel Core processors, it includes two PCI/PCIe card slots for adaptability. It provides high-bandwidth ideal for industrial PC and IoT use cases (multi-HD video streaming apps and high frequency sensor data sources) as well as manufacturing and automation control. The Embedded Box PC 5000 Series and 3000 Series will be available in select countries in summer 2016 starting at USD $1,099 and $1,699.
