Fremont, California – Arista Corporation is excited to announce the fanless embedded computer BoxPC 240A, a industrial grade wall mountable fanless computer. The system is based on the 1.5GHz VIA C7 processor an features dual PCI expandability, dual Gigabit Ethernet and AC or DC power options.
BoxPC 240A Overview
The Arista BoxPC 240A compact fanless industrial computer is designed for flexible deployment in a wide variety of scenarios. Its robust fanless design makes the BoxPC 240A an ideal solution for factory automation, industrial signage, food production, manufacturing, capital equipment, medical, assembly or any other application that requires a compact embedded computing solution. The onboard 1.5GHz VIA C7 processor couples low power consumption with minimal cooling requirements, resulting in stability and longevity. The units advanced design allows for completely fanless computer operations. Mountable in any position, the BoxPC 240A yields an infinite range of installation and integration locations.
External Features & Connectivity
Externally, the BoxPC 240A is packed with industry leading design features. Constructed of a sealed all metal chassis, the design provides protection against moisture, humidity and particulate matter ingress. The BoxPC 240A offers maximum industrial connectivity, including dual Gigabit RJ-45 ports, four USB 2.0 ports, five RS-232 COM ports, one RS-232/422/485 COM port, up to five 1600 x 1200 VGA ports, one LPT printer port, one set of audio & microphone connections and separate KB and MS connectors. The unit offers external access to a CF Type II slot through a separate sealed access panel. To protect against cable disconnection due to high vibration, all vital I/O connections are screw-in, clip-in and secured, including a unique screw-in power connector.
Developed from the ground up for low power, low thermal operation, the BoxPC 240’s VIA C7 processor is based on the advanced VIA CoolStream™ Architecture and manufactured using IBM’s state-of-the-art 90nm Silicon-on-Insulator (SOI) process, which delivers the greatest performance per watt in the business. To further incorporate energy and thermal efficiency, the BoxPC 240A features an advanced internal heat sink system with oversized copper cooling pipes which effectively dissipates heat to the external cooling fins.
The BoxPC 240A features industry leading processing power with the expandability necessary to fulfill your specific application scenario. The unit incorporates a low voltage 1.5GHz VIA C7 500MHz FSB processor with up to 1GB of DDR400 RAM. The unit comes standard with a Industrial SATA 40GB HDD @ 5400RPM, with up to 160GB Industrial HDD optional. Arista pays special attention to internal cable management with locking SATA cables, clipping and locking connector cables and precisely secured cable groupings.
Arista focuses on green computing with its environmentally conscious design and energy saving operations. According to a survey by Cornell University, a typical desktop computer can consume over 144 watts of power at maximum operations and upwards of 85 watts when idle. The BoxPC 240A utilizes 54 watts at maximum operations, allowing for energy saving operations. Additionally, Arista utilizes RoHS compliant components, cables and accessories.
