Two new fanless panel PCs are powered by Intel Atom N270 processors. The PPC-L128T and PPC-L157T from Advantech are 12.1” and 15” fanless panel PCs that deliver high performance while consuming low power. They operate with low noise levels and provide display resolutions up to 1024 x 768 (XGA) pixels. The PPC-L128T and PPC-L157T PCs are both equipped with dual Gigabit Ethernet connectors that support either failover or LAN teaming. Advantech’s customization services and optional accessories such as wireless modules, battery packs and SATA optical devices allow system integrators to design tailor-made solutions for a variety of industrial applications. The PPC-L128T optionally supports a sunlight-readable display, making it suitable for outdoor use. 

The PPC-L128T and PPC-L157T are designed with the Atom 1.6 GHz N270 processor combined with 945GSE + ICH7M chipsets. The chipsets are rated at 2.5W, 4W and 1.5W respectively. The system’s fanless design provides passive cooling, and its low noise operation makes the PPC-L128T and PPC-L157T suitable for many environments. Examples include admissions areas or other public locations such as hospitals. The industrial-grade panel PC front bezels are IP65 and NEMA4 compliant, and the systems are tested up to 1G for vibration. The PPC-L128T and PPC-L157T Panel PCs are both capable of displaying XGA resolutions, and are capable of displaying standard SVGA resolutions at 800 x 600 pixels. 

The PPC-L128T and PPC-L157T both support LAN teaming and failover configurations using dual Gigabit Ethernet LAN connectors. With teaming, the two physical NICs can be configured as one logical connection, effectively doubling throughput. With failover, the two physical NICs can be attached to separate network switches, allowing for continued operation and redundancy in the event of failure of one network path. System integrators can make the choice based on their application needs.
