Advantech Launches UNO-2484G Next-Generation Modular Box Platform for Industrial IoT Applications
Advantech, a leading computing platform provider, is pleased to announce UNO-2484G – a highly ruggedized next-generation model of its UNO series of modular computing box platforms. Equipped with an Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 processor and 8 GB of DDR4 memory, UNO-2484G is designed to deliver high-performance computing and maximum flexibility for industrial Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The provision of rich I/O, including 4 GbE, 4 USB 3.0, 4 RS-232/422/485, 1 HDMI, and 1 DisplayPort (4K), as well as an optional second stack expansion kit supports the integration of Advantech’s iDoor technology for adding flexible functionality according to specific application requirements. With the addition of various iDoor modules, such as an industrial Fieldbus communication, power over Ethernet, COM, or digital I/O module, system integrators can extend or customize the platform features to provide purpose-built, future-proof solutions for diverse machine automation, industrial IoT SCADA server, and performance control applications. The platform also features a cable-less design that streamlines installation, while built-in chassis grounding protection prevents damage from electrical noise, surges, or transient voltage. The UNO-2484G’s robust and fanless architecture is compatible with 10 ~ 36 VDC input power, supports a wide operating temperature range (-20 ~ 60 °C), and can withstand operation in harsh environments, making it ideal for industrial factory operations such as equipment connectivity, process visualization, environmental management, and dispatch management.
- Modular, Scalable Design for Flexible Configuration and Expansion
UNO-2484G features a modular design that can be integrated with diverse peripherals and stackable expansion boards to provide flexible platform solutions aimed at specific field applications. Customers can choose from Advantech’s diverse I/O expansion modules (iDOOR) to assemble the ideal solution based on their exact usage specifications. The incredible modularity of UNO-2484G offers numerous performance and cost-saving advantages, including complete HMI control and monitoring, customization according to application requirements, rapid integration and deployment, reduced system downtime and maintenance costs, and support for future expansion.
- 6th Generation Intel® Core™ i Processor for High-Performance
Computing Powered by a 6th generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 processor with 8 GB of DDR4 memory, UNO-2484G is a competitively priced solution that delivers the high-performance computing to handle heavy loading and multi-task applications. Highly ruggedized, UNO-2484G supports 10 ~ 36 VDC input power and a wide operating temperature range (-20 ~ 60 °C) to satisfy industrial requirements and ensure stable operation in diverse, potentially harsh, operating environments.
- Fanless, Cable-Free Design Ensures Easy Assembly and Convenient Installation
Advantech’s UNO-2484G platform is cable free, which offers the advantages of internal space savings, an increased mean time before failure (MTBF), more reliable signal transmissions, and higher shock and vibration tolerance. Additionally, the platform’s fanless design reduces the accumulation of dust and foreign contaminants, and easy-access USB ports and highly expandable I/O interfaces limit system downtime and support diverse factory applications.
- Supports Rapid Customization According to Application Requirements
UNO-2484G can be rapidly customized and configured according to usage requirements. With the inclusion of rich I/O, including 4 GbE, 4 USB 3.0, 4 RS-232/422/485, 1 HDMI, and 1 DisplayPort (4K), and support for up to 4 iDOOR expansion, UNO-2484G can be integrated with various peripherals that drastically extend the system functions and applications. The platform’s high customizability not only offers maximum flexibility for a wide range of industrial applications, but also reduces product development time and time-to-market.
