Portwell, Inc., a world-leading innovator in the Industrial PC (IPC) market and a member of the Intel® Communications Alliance, announces the WADE-1120, a compact fan-less barebones system with a unique tool-free design that allows the integrator or field service engineer to release the top cover quickly and easily. Designed with a built-in Mini-ITX-based embedded system board (ESB), the WADE-1120 is the perfect system solution for any embedded application that operates in a harsh environment. It integrates seamlessly with Portwell cost-effective WADE-8041, Intel® ULV Celeron® M-based (852GM chipset) or WADE-8144, Intel® Pentium® M-based (915GM chipset) Mini-ITX ESB, or a similar Mini-ITX ESB.
The WADE-1120 node chassis supports VGA, two LAN, three COM and four USB ports in a compact 283 mm x 200 mm x 44 mm (11.1" x 7.9" x 1.75") form factor that weighs a mere 2-2.5 kg (4.41-5.51 lbs).
Portwell WADE-8041 is a cost-effective Mini-ITX ESB for applications that need low power consumption. Built with the 600MHz ULV Intel® Celeron® M processor, the WADE-8041 generates the computing power necessary to support a host of embedded applications. Its dual video feature also enables the use of two displays simultaneously, its four COM and six USB ports provide an immediate interface to a wide range of peripherals.
Available now, Portwell WADE-1120 fanless system with WADE-8041 Mini-ITX ESB is the ideal solution for applications in medical equipment, digital signage, automated test equipment, kiosks and network appliances.
Cost-effective, compact and durable design
"The new WADE-1120 and integrated WADE-8041 Mini-ITX ESB is the perfect solution for customers who are seeking increased computing and lower power consumption in a small footprint," says Roven Lai, AVP of Product Marketing Dep., Portwell, Inc. "The WADE-1120 node chassis is designed to efficiently dissipate internal heat without a ventilation fan -- so it’s cooler and quieter -- and its unique tool-free design makes it a snap for quick and efficient field service."
"Whether it’s taking advantage of the Intel® ULV Celeron® M or Pentium® M processors," adds Roven Lai, "the integrated WADE-8041 Mini-ITX ESB provides dual video outputs that can drive two displays simultaneously at high speed, while maintaining superior image quality."
Keeping applications running 24/7
"The smaller footprint and fanless operation of the WADE-1120 node chassis not only keeps the size down, but it also reduces energy consumption," explains Roven Lai, "This provides companies with applications operating 24/7 the opportunity to save money."
"A further advantage of the dual displays inherent with the choice of WADE-8041 Mini-ITX ESB," continues Roven Lai, "is that the primary display can be kept online 24/7 while the operator or engineer conducts field service using the second display, ensuring that mission-critical applications can continue uninterrupted."
Reliable operation and long product lifecycle
"Portwell is not only a member of the Intel® Communications Alliance (ICA), but we were recently awarded Gold Vendor status on VDC’s (Venture Development Corporation) 2006 Embedded Board Vendor Rankings," confirms Don Chang, President of VMS BU, Portwell.
"This award recognizes those vendors of merchant embedded computer boards that have provided the greatest degree of overall satisfaction to their customers. Combined with our ISO 9001 certification, it means customers can be confident that they will receive a reliable product, delivered ahead of the curve, with professional support and a long life cycle."
