New Fanless PC From Logic Supply Is Built For Flexibility In Industrial IoT Applications

The ML350 features a low profile fanless enclosure and a motherboard developed from the ground up to enable a range of customization options including expansion, connectivity and advanced Consumer Electronics Control (CEC).

SOUTH BURLINGTON, VT (January 24, 2018)

With an eye toward the evolving needs of today's industrial computer users, Logic Supply (www.logicsupply.com) has unveiled the small form factor, fanless ML350 (www.logicsupply.com/ml350). Powered by Intel® Apollo Lake processing, the ML350 is a highly customizable computing platform, purpose-built from board to chassis for applications ranging from digital signage and machine automation, to industrial IoT and edge computing.

"We believe computers should be designed for the people who use them," says Murat Erdogan, Director of Product Management at Logic Supply. "This belief has pushed us to search for new, innovative hardware solutions - systems built from board to chassis to connect and power our clients' innovations. With the ML350, we had the opportunity to create a board and chassis combination that would provide the flexibility and configurability to accommodate a wide range of embedded and industrial IoT applications."

The ML350 has been engineered to strike an ideal balance between size and performance, while allowing for optimal configuration. Redundant solid state storage, Wi-Fi/Bluetooth, 4G LTE, dual Gb LAN, dual DisplayPorts and optional expansion via CAN bus, give the ML350 flexibility seldom seen in such a compact fanless computer.

"Designing the ML350 motherboard from the ground up provided the opportunity to include a few commonly-requested features," says Erdogan. "The system's two mPCIe and one mSATA slots give users the freedom to select the expansion and connectivity they need, like concurrent 4G and Wi-Fi, and we also wanted to include capabilities that would be well-suited for the applications that might employ the ML350, like CEC for digital signage."

Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) allows connected devices to exchange information, enabling users to control multiple devices with a single interface. In practice, the ML350's optional multi-screen CEC capability means that users can control the on/off state of attached displays through the system, drastically simplifying power management in, for example, industrial digital signage applications like restaurants, outdoor digital billboards or transportation hubs.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
