What is an industrial control motherboard

IPC motherboard This is a new type of motherboard, is a further improvement to the motherboard. In this kind of motherboard, even the type of CPU, operating voltage, etc. are not required to use jumper switches, they are automatically identified, and only need to be slightly adjusted by software. CPUs that have been Remarked will be invisible on this type of motherboard.

Simply put, it is a motherboard used in industrial settings, adopted by industrial computers, which can adapt to wide temperature environments, can adapt to harsh environments, and can work under high load for long periods of time, according to demand. Distinguished from commercial motherboards, ordinary motherboards. According to the structure and size of the motherboard can be divided into: full-length card, half-length card, 5.25 inch, 3.5 inch, PC104 architecture, etc.. According to the choice of chip series: 386, 486, 586, PIII, P4, ATOM, etc.. According to the chip type: X86 industrial motherboards, ARM industrial motherboards, MIPS architecture industrial motherboards, etc.

Industrial Motherboards

Industrial motherboards are a new type of motherboard, which is a further improvement of the motherboard. On this motherboard, even the type of CPU, operating voltage, etc. do not need to use jumper switches, they are automatically recognized, and only need to be slightly adjusted by software. 486 before the motherboard generally does not have the above features, 586 above the motherboard are equipped with PnP and energy-saving features, some of the original brand machine can also be controlled by the motherboard host power on/off, to further achieve intelligent power on/off, which is still rare in the compatible machine motherboard, but is certainly a future development direction.

Industrial control motherboards are usually used in harsher environments, the typical environment of industrial control motherboards, as follows:

Operating temperature: the range can reach -20 degrees ~ 70 degrees
Operating humidity: range up to non-condensing 0 ~ 95%
Environmental dust: metal dust, ordinary dust
Electromagnetic radiation: strong electromagnetic interference environment, their own radiation control
Long working hours: general life cycle of permanent power on

These environments are above the commercial motherboard can not be competent.

At present, the main application areas of industrial control motherboard are: industrial equipment, GPS navigation, online monitoring of sewage, online monitoring of air, instrumentation, professional equipment controller, military, government agencies, telecommunications, banks, electricity, car LCD, monitors, visual doorbell, portable DVD, LCD display module, environmental protection equipment, etc..

Industrial control motherboards often work in harsh environments in the temperature range up to -20 degrees ~ 70 degrees (life cycle of permanent power on, harsh climate, humidity, vibration, dust, radiation, high temperature, etc.), and these environments are not capable of commercial motherboards.

Industrial control motherboard through a special design, in the event of a crash and other abnormalities, can achieve automatic restart, anti-surge shock and other functions, to fully ensure the system in the harsh environment of high stability requirements for the development of the evaluation board: in the physical development of the evaluation board is mainly to carry 0, and lead all the external interfaces to the corresponding hardware interface or socket.

Industrial control motherboard evaluation base board also extends the GPRS, RS485 and other functional units to facilitate the user to carry out relevant functional tests, while providing a reference for the user to design their own application base board serial connection cable: used to connect the development of the host. The debugging information during the electric start-up and operation as well as the display information during the program operation will be output through the serial port; the user’s operation of EM9660 is also realized through the serial port using the super terminal. Serial line specification: 3-wire RS232 (RX-TX cross) Ethernet connection line: direct connection method, used for the management and maintenance of the target system and the development of network applications USB connection line: A-B connection line, used for system kernel burning DC power line: red and black, +5V, used to supply power to the system.
