Innovate, deliver and commission your solutions faster: Dell Embedded Box PCs
Dell’s heritage brings enterprise-class support, reliability and flexibility to the industrial PC market
Embedded computers are everywhere around us. In the machine reliability system that does quality assurance in a pharma process line. In the transportation and passenger info systems that enhance your journey. In the control systems that manufacture the products you use every day. In the automated retail kiosk that takes your blood pressure and provides you with health reports
Embedded systems, sometimes called industrial PCs (IPCs), also help run the Internet of Things (IoT), where Dell is establishing a leadership position. The cost of embedded PCs continues to fall because of innovation, competitive pressures and economies of scale. But the industry is still fragmented. Finding reliable, ruggedized, embedded PCs is just the beginning. As a manufacturer or embedded system user, you often battle challenges from the market providers:
• High minimum quantities (100 to 1,000+) mean a larger investment in your system design and testing, as well as inventories that can become technologically stale.
• The prevailing approach is design-to-order, which can take 12 to 36 months to deliver a first model. Or a configure-toorder approach, which requires choosing from thousands of components.
• Vendors or their suppliers sometimes substitute less-reliable components, putting your mission-critical processes at risk for days of expensive downtime.
• It’s hard to find even an extended hardware warranty, let alone any expanded services and support. A globally available support system is almost impossible to find.
As a respected Tier 1 technology vendor, and after much customer demand, Dell knows we can change that. That’s why we’re bringing the industrial PC market into the mainstream with new embedded PCs.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is an ecosystem where sensors, devices and equipment are connected to a network and can transmit and receive data fortracking, analysis and action. Dell’s approach to the IoT is a pragmatic one, and embedded computers in smart systems and other distributed networks support this approach: Start simple. Use what you have and build on it. Architect for analytics, which is the source of the IoT benefits. Begin with security. Don’t install it as an afterthought.
Here’s what fanless, embedded computers look like.
Introducing the Dell Embedded Box PCs 3000 and 5000
Embedded computers must run reliably 24×7 for extended deployments, and withstand higher and lower temperatures than ordinary PCs. Industrial, telecom, vehicular and other settings can bring high amounts of shock, vibration, moisture and high electromagnetic radiation.
Dell has almost 10 years’ engineering experience in rugged devices. Dell Embedded Box PCs are fanless,highly reliable devices that can be used “headless” or with a keyboard,mouse and monitor. Flexible and powerful, with many input/output options, they run on powerful
dual-core Intel® processors, which allow them to perform analysis, control and data aggregation and graphical display at the edge of the network. They communicate securely with back-end or closed-loop control systems.
Dell brings its heritage as a Tier 1 vendor to embedded systems
In addition to reducing your speed to market from months to weeks, Dell brings the benefits of enterpriseclass lifecycle, stability, service and support to industrial PCs. Get closer to the benefits of a single-source supplier relationship.
