Cincoze Launches New Industrial Embedded Computer for AMRs

CincozeDI 1100 400x275

February 10, 2022

Cincoze has announced a new industrial embedded computer aimed at different smart factory applications. The DI-1100 is designed for autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), ensuring on-time delivery of components to a production line or goods to warehouse racks, and suitable for 24/7 operation in outdoor remote monitoring systems.

Cincoze said the computer is the most important part for integration of an AMR because it serves as the robot’s center, and interfaces with different devices and software interfaces. The DI-1100 series uses a high-performance Intel 8th Gen quad-core i7/i5/i3 (Whiskey Lake-U) CPU, and supports one DDR4 2400MHz SO-DIMM up to 64GB to meet high-efficiency computing requirements for real-time dynamic detection, obstacle detection, and multitasking.

Measuring 203 mm by 142 mm by 66.8 mm, the new series can easily fit into an AMR, while leaving sufficient space for other devices such as lifting or safety devices, Cincoze said. The 15W low-power consumption reduces the AGV/AMR charging time, helping to improve efficiency and productivity. I/O options include Gigabit Ethernet LNA, USB 3.2, USB 2.0, and RS-232/422/485 to connect cameras, networks and sensors. The computer also includes two Mini PCIe slots for Wi-Fi, GPS and 4G modules to enable real-time communication and location tracking for group collaboration.

For outdoor remote monitoring systems, an embedded computer must be able to transmit surveillance footage and collect data, even in adverse weather conditions. Cincoze said the DI-1100 supports Cincoze’s exclusive CMI, CFM, and MEC modules that provide 10 Gigabit Ethernet LAN, M12 X-Code LAN, DIO, and other I/O capabilities. Of particular importance for remote monitoring, the four-port PoE card provides up to 25.5W of power per port, is designed explicitly for PoE cameras, and also supports useful functions like remote restart and shutdown at night. The front access panel has a hot-swappable 2.5-inch HDD/SSD tray and an mSATA slot to store surveillance footage in high volume and collect data from production equipment, which can then be transmitted through 4G for analysis.

To combat heat buildup, the DI-1100 series comes with an optional external cooling fan that can be attached to the top, helping to dissipate heat and stabilize operation. Outdoor monitoring equipment also faces challenges such as extreme temperatures, considerable electromagnetic interference, or the limited power supply from solar panels. To tackle these challenges, the Cincoze said the DI-1100 offers wide temperature support (-40-70°C), wide voltage support (9-48 VDC), overvoltage protection, overcurrent protection, ESD protection, and 15W low power consumption, the ideal combination for outdoor remote monitoring systems.

The DI-1100 series has wall-mount, side-mount, DIN-rail, and VESA mounting options for maximum installation flexibility. In addition, the DI-1100 series has multiple international safety certifications, such as the U.S. military equipment inspection standard (MIL-STD-810G), rail transit EN50155 (EN 50121-3-2 only), and E-mark for use in any application. With the steep trend towards smart manufacturing, Cincoze’s tough and reliable rugged embedded computers are the best choice for building a high-productivity smart factory.
