1. Streamline Industrial Automation with Industrial PCs
Industrial automation requires precise optimization and quality assurance to accelerate specific tasks effectively. These processes would not be possible without industrial PCs providing connectivity to IoT sensors and enabling real-time data insights. Industrial PCs like Premio’s latest 10th Gen Industrial Computer (RCO-6000-CML) delivers immense performance to the rugged edge with: dual universal expansion slots for up to 8x IoT ports, and 2x hot-swappable SSD bays for data redundancy and rapid data offloading. These features allow data to be quickly collected, processed, and stored for real-time data analytics on factory floors. Industrial PCs are purpose-built to withstand the harsh conditions on factory floors. The hardened case protects the components from debris, dust, shock, and vibration. It also has a wide operating temperature and voltage input range for additional ruggedness. With all these features, industrial PCs excel in factory environments and provide the necessary processing performance needed in modern industrial automation.
2. Rugged Edge Computing Enable AI for Intelligent Manufacturing
As the world transitions into Industry 4.0, there is an ever-growing demand for AI. AI has revolutionized manufacturing with precision accuracy and rapid turnaround times. However, AI requires a computing solution that can process and store the vast amounts of data collected from the IoT sensors. Cloud computing is capable of extremely high compute but has latency and suffers from inconsistent wireless connectivity. Rugged edge computing, on the other hand, localizes the processing power by being deployed on-premises. Premio’s latest AI Edge Inference Computer (RCO-6000-CML) utilizes transformative technologies like NVMe and NVIDIA RTX GPU to consolidate specific workloads. EDGEBoost Nodes allow end users to select the most optimal configuration to accelerate performance. Additionally, our Machine Vision Computers (VCO-6000-CFL) are purpose-built to enable computer vision AI for rapid industrial inspection. These industrial-grade edge computers provide both high-performance and ubiquitous connectivity to establish smart manufacturing.
3. Importance of Reliability at The Rugged Edge
Downtime and maintenance are detrimental in the manufacturing sector. Not only is it costly, it develops bottlenecks, delays, and inconsistencies within the overall system. Edge computers enable AI to streamline timely tasks but must remain reliable and sustainable while under operation. There are a variety of hazardous conditions that are present on factory floors that edge computers must withstand:
- Varying temperature ranges
- Shock and vibration
- Inconsistent power voltages
Traditional computers cannot handle these harsh environments and will lead to system failure. Edge computers are purpose-built to be deployed onto factory floors by following a fanless, cableless, and industrial-grade design. These culminations of demands have sprouted an innovative enclosure for edge computers. The fully enclosed casing serves as both a hardened shell to protect vital components from dust, debris, and contaminants, and a heatsink to regulate thermals.
