Portwell Launches Javi Panel PC Series
Robust and Flexible Single-Touch HMI Series Enables Industrial Solutions for Smart Automation
Portwell, Inc., a world-leading innovator for Industrial PC (IPC) and embedded computing solutions, and an associate member of the Intel® Internet of Things (IoT) Solutions Alliance, announces the launch of Portwell’s JAVI Panel PC series. Focused on industrial applications, the JAVI series is a fanless and robust Panel PC with extraordinary I/O flexibility.
To meet various needs and to make it a perfect fit for diverse applications, the JAVI series is available in 10.4″, 12.1″, 15″, 17″ and 19-inch displays. All five versions are available with 5-wire resistive touch or with projective capacitive multi-touch as the project requires. Powered by quad-core Intel® Atom® processor E3845 (10W Max TDP, 2M Cache, 1.91 GHz) integrating Intel® Gen 7 3D graphics engine, the JAVI series provides wide operating temperature support, high I/O connectivity and achieves up to 3x the peak performance and 5x the power efficiency of the previous generation.
The fanless design of Portwell’s JAVI Panel PC series ensures silent operation, improved reliability and reduced maintenance costs. The JAVI Panel PCs use a robust aluminum front bezel, metal housing and are IP65 rated on the front panel, and IP20 on the rear side. In addition to the higher computing and graphic performance, the JAVI series features all required interfaces for industrial application: 1 x HDMI® port, 1 x VGA port, 2 x Gigabit Ethernet, 1 x USB 3.0, 3 x USB 2.0, 2 x RS-232/422/485 ports, 2 x RS-232 ports, one 2.5″ SATA HDD or SSD, one half-size mSATA device. Two SMA antenna holes provide optional Wi-Fi and 3G/GPS or 4G LTE function via Mini-PCIe add-on card and SIM card slot.
Modularization and flexibility was the major design goal for Portwell’s JAVI Panel PC series, which enables the Panel PC unit to be separated into an independent “embedded system” and a “touch panel display”. As a result, users can choose different panel sizes ranging from 10.4˝ to 19˝, and pair up with the embedded system by hidden cabling. The JAVI series also includes a friendly, tool-less design for quick and easy hard drive installation or replacement. The flexible I/O extensions are another key feature of the new Panel PC’s. JAVI of 15″, 17″ and 19″ can be extended by one out of six available expansion boards. The expansions offer isolated RS-232, CAN bus, EtherCAT or PROFINET ports as well as Line-out and MIC in combination with a SIM card slot.
Additionally, the Portwell’s JAVI Panel PC series supports a 12~24V wide range DC input for industrial operating environments and allow panel mounting or standard 100mm x 100mm VESA mounting. It supports many mainstream operating systems, such as Microsoft® Windows® 8, Windows 7 and Linux®.
