1.Industrial Control Board Brand

Industrial control boards are widely used in industrial automation, machine vision, face recognition, medical, self-service terminals and finance. Industrial control board is widely used, because its stability, reliability, quality and so on directly affect the entire system. therefore, Brand products are also very important.

2.Industrial Control Board Size

The industrial control board can be directly installed in the equipment, such as being installed in the vending machine for automatic vending; can be used with the traditional 4U industrial control cabinet, commonly used in machine vision, industrial automation, etc.; or installed in the embedded host, suitable for VTM, subway gates, self-service terminals, medical equipment and other fields. It can be seen that the size of the industrial control board is diversified to meet different needs. Industrial control boards can be divided into ATX, MicroATX, and Mini ITX.

3.Industrial Control Board Environmental Parameters

Industrial control board use environment is complicated and requires industrial control board to resist electromagnetic interference,It has good dustproof and anti-vibration performance, can work uninterrupted for a long time in a wide temperature environment, has good stability and high reliability.

4.Industrial Control BoardCertification

Industrial control panels have passed strict industrial certification, need to pass 3C in China, need to pass CE, RoSH in Europe, the United States need to pass FCC.

5.Industrial Control Board Connector

The industrial control board has COM connector, USB, HDMI, VGA, LPT, LVDS and other types of interfaces to facilitate external devices.

6.Watchdog Circuit

Watchdog circuit has become a necessary function of industrial control board.It can quickly alert the system in the event of a system failure and automatically resume operation without human intervention.

7.Life Cycle

The industrial control board MTBF (mean time between failures) is more than 50,000 hours, and the service period is 5-7 years.

8.Expansion Slot

ISA: During the replacement period, there are still many industries that need to be used, so many industrial boards are still in use.

PCI: It is the main expansion slot of the industrial board, and it is also a type of slot with more industrial control boards.. Industrial control board of ATX structure generally has 4 to 6 PCI slots, and Mini ITX industrial control board can also have a PCI slot, which is widely used.

The industrial control board is more complicated. In order to ensure the quality of the assembly, it is necessary to know the installation skills, and pay attention to the details when purchasing.

When you choose the industrial control board, you must match the CPU. Not all CPU slots are of the same type. If you can’t match them, you can’t assemble them together. You need to investigate and be incompatible when purchasing. Especially for this item is very important. Therefore, it is necessary to consult professionals, and to use the actual use as the basis for purchase, and strive to purchase cost-effective products.
