No larger than a car radio, tough enough for industry and with a choice of processing powerthe JRex IBOX from Kontron opens a new round in the miniaturization of industrial computers (IPC) for automation.

The company packs high-performance processors, an AT power supply for 24Vdc or 110Vac/240Vac, an extensive standard set of interfaces and space enough to meet application-specific I/O requirements with PCI-based expansion assemblies into a housing that measures a mere 226(W)-by-59(H)-by-122(?)mm.

The choice of processors for the mini IPCs, which can be mounted on top-hat rails or the wall, ranges from the cost-saving 600MHz VIA Eden to the energy-saving high-end 1.6GHz Intel Pentium M processor. Optional expansion assemblies sit in the PCI slot. Vibration-free and without cables, they cover a wide variety of application scenarios.

The JRex IBOX is specifically designed for industrial use. It is robustly equipped and intended to be maintenance-free during its life on the factory floor or in similarly rugged environments. All CPU assemblies are fanless.
