Cincoze Launches New Power-saving Rugged Industrial Computer

Cincoze DI 1100 400x275

December 2, 2021

Taiwan’s Cincoze, which develops rugged embedded computers, has announced the DI-1100 series within its DIAMOND product line. Equipped with Intel Core Whiskey Lake-U CPUs, the new computers provide high-performance and ultra-low power consumption (15W TDP). The company said the series is ideal for space-limited applications and those with limited power availability, including autonomous robots, in-vehicle usages, environmental monitoring and more.

The compact design and flexible expansions, several installation options, 9 to 48 VDC input voltage support and a wide temperature range of -40 degrees Celsius to 70 degrees Celsius are additional drivers for adoption of the DI-1100, the company said. The systems use the 8th generation INtel Core Whiskey Lake-U i7/i5/i3 processors, suitable for AIoT applications, with quad-core high-speed performance, and supporting up to 32GB of DDR4 w400 MHz SO-DIMM, which can meet demand for graphics processing and high-speed image capture, Cincoze said. The low power consumption also makes the system suitable for AGVs and autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), as it lowers power requirements and reduces the time between recharges for maximum efficiency.

The DI-1100 supports one mSATA and one hot-swappable 2.5-inch HDD/SSD tray to expand storage space. The front panel maintenance area has two SIM card slots for GPS tracking and positioning over the mobile network connection. Cincoze said the dual SIMs allow the vehicle to travel between areas supported by different network providers and never lose the mobile data connection, a key factor in the full implementation of IoV (Internet of Vehicles).

Native I/O connections include two Gigabit Ethernet, four USB 3.2, two USB 2.0, two RS-232/422/485, one HDMI, one DisplayPort, and one VGA port. Expansion options include two internal full-size Mini PCIe slots for wireless transmission modules, and Cincoze’s exclusive CMI, CFM, and MEC modules for M12, digital I/O, Power Ignition Sensing (IGN), and PoE. “This selection offers everything needed for different environments and various peripheral devices,” said Cincoze. “The unique extruded aluminum effectively wicks heat away for maximum heat dissipation, and an optional external heat fan provides additional cooling.”

The new DI-1100 measures only 203 mm by 142 mm by 66.8 mm, and has installation methods that include wall-mount, side-mount, DIN-rail, and VESA. The company said its small size and various mounting options make it ideal for AGVs and AMRs, remote monitoring equipment, and more. The system supports the U.S. military equipment inspection standard (MIL-STD-810G), rail transit EN50155 (EN 50121-3-2 only), E-mark, and other international certifications, for simplified integration in many application scenarios.
