Impulse attended the International Armoured Vehicle Conference 2011 last week and we thought this is an opportune time to pen a small article introducing the recently released TANK-GM45A Embedded PC from IEI Technology. Impulse are very pleased to welcome the next offering in a long line of innovative solutions from Industrial powerhouse IEI. Despite being driven by a high performance Intel Core 2 Duo Processor, IEI have engineered a completely fanless solution with an extended temperature range from –20°C to +70°C often essential in industrial computing applications.
The TANK-GM45A’s rugged aluminium chassis essentially acts as a giant heatsink, dissipating the heat away from the processor board using a thermal pad attached to the precision machined fins, which increase the cooling surface area. The fanless system helps increase reliability by removing all moving parts, lowering power consumption and reducing environmental noise.
IEI market this product as a high reliability Industrial PC suitable for the Digital Surveillance market with good reason. The Intel Dual Core processor and GM45 Chipset allows for H.264 and WMV9 video encoding; Gigabit Ethernet and wide temperature range, satisfying the industry’s core requirements. This said, the Impulse team anticipate that the product will not be confined to one field but will make tracks to other vertical markets with all the ease of its armoured namesake.
Whilst the TANK-GM45A has an impressive specification, it also positions itself at a very reasonable price point, so with other features such as an Isolated COM port, 4 x USB and Dual LAN, this latest creation will nestle perfectly into a variety of performance demanding applications in emerging and traditional industrial markets.
