An industrial computer (industrial PC or IPC) is a rugged computer designed to meet harsh environmental requirements, such as extreme temperatures, high shock and vibration, and protection from water splash/jet and dust.
Compared with consumer PC, industrial PC offers better features than consumer PC in terms of reliability, compatibility, expansion options and long-term supply. Low power and fanless designs make it possible to embed IPC in more compact enclosures or systems, ideal for space constrained applications. That's part of the reason embedded computer is the subset of industrial computer.
SINTRON fanless embedded computers that feature compact, light weight and significant I/O, are the fanless PCs designed to fulfill space-critical, trusted remote computing applications. SINTRON fanless industrial computers are ideal for networking appliance, data acquisition, digital signage, gate control, self-service terminal and industrial automation and control.
