Press Center >> Industrial news >> 10.03.2020

Advantech, a leading provider of embedded platform solutions, is pleased to announce its new UTC-520 IP65 all-in-one (AIO) 21.5” panel PC with full IP65-rated ingress protection. Designed for use in harsh industrial environments, UTC-520 IP65 features an IP65-rated corrosion-resistant stainless steel enclosure and M12 I/O connectors to provide a truly watertight solution that can withstand the most demanding applications. To ensure easy flexible deployment, the built-in Intel® Pentium® N4200 processor with DDR3L 1867 MHz memory (up to 8 GB) is compatible with a wide operating temperature (-10 ~ 50 °C/14 ~ 122 °F) and input voltage (12 ~ 32 V), while the 21.5” 16:9 widescreen monitor supports both landscape and portrait screen orientations. The UTC-520 IP65 also supports multiple OS, including Windows, Android, and Linux, further increasing the overall compatibility and flexibility. Moreover, to extend the functionalities for diverse applications, the system can be integrated with optional camera modules, light sensors, and even a waterproof Wi-Fi receiver with cable-free connection. This innovative panel PC design offers enhanced operation for a wide variety of uses, including serving as a factory HMI, semi-outdoor computing platform, or herd management control panel.

Tough Panel PC with Full IP65-Rated Protection

Advantech’s UTC-520 IP65 is built to provide a tough high-performance panel PC that can be employed in harsh industrial environments. To ensure optimal operation under extreme conditions, the corrosion-resistant stainless steel enclosure is IP65 rated for resistance to water and dust ingress, providing sufficient protection in case of exposure to chemicals or bad weather. Like the other UTC series products, UTC-520 IP65 also features a low-power, fanless design for superior energy efficiency, quiet operation, and an extended product lifecycle.

M12 Connectors Ensure Waterproof Industrial Solution

For industrial applications that require a reliable waterproof computing system, the UTC-520 IP65 system’s I/O ports are equipped with M12 connectors. The advantages of M12 connectors for industrial cabling include easy assembly, compact size, and secure connection even under shock or vibration. With the inclusion of M12 connectors, the UTC-520 IP65 provides an industrial-grade panel PC that can be quickly deployed, tested, and maintained.


Wide Operating Temperature and Input Voltage for Factory Environments

Compared to consumer-grade panel PCs, the UTC-520 IP65 supports a wide operating temperature range of -10 ~ 50 °C/14 ~ 122 °F to ensure stable operation and reliable performance under severe temperature variations. This combined with the wide input voltage range (12 ~ 32 V), which allows switching between power sources without the use of converters, making the UTC-520IP65 ideal for factory environments.
