A new RISC-based embedded computer with a bright 8.4” TFT LCD is targeted as a wide-temperature, ruggedized, flat panel computer suitable for a variety of HMI and control applications. Featuring new LED backlight technology, the SeaPAC R9-8.4 from Sealevel Systems offers an extended operating temperature range of -30° to +70°C with no heaters or cooling fans required.  

Powered by a 200 MIPS ARM9 microprocessor, the SeaPAC R9-8.4 is available with up to 256 Mbyte RAM and 256 Mbyte Flash memory. Standard I/O includes Ethernet, serial, USB, CAN Bus and digital interfaces. For intuitive operator interface, the system includes a resistive touch screen that is suitable for a wide range of industrial environments and uses. The SeaPAC R9-8.4 is intended for panel mount applications and provides an aluminum front bezel that maintains NEMA 4/IP65 protection from sprayed liquids. 

Local or remote I/O expansion is available using Sealevel SeaI/O modules. Choose from a variety of I/O configurations including optically isolated inputs, Reed and Form C relay outputs, TTL interfaces, A/D and D/A. The SeaPAC R9-8.4 connects to SeaI/O modules via the system’s RS-485 expansion port and communicates using Modbus RTU.

The Windows CE 6.0 BSP binary and low-level drivers for system I/O are included. Additionally, the SeaPAC R9-8.4 software package is equipped with the Sealevel Talos I/O Framework, which offers a high-level object-oriented .NET Compact Framework (CF) device interface. This interface provides an I/O point abstraction layer with built-in support for easily interfacing the system’s I/O. Linux support is also available. Low quantity pricing starts at $1,599.
