Flexible and powerful: Kontron adds the new KBox C-103-CFL series to its industrial computer family

KBox C-103-CFL series with many additional interfaces - the latest 9th generation Intel® Core™ and Intel® Xeon® E processors for performance-hungry applications

Augsburg, Germany, November 26, 2019 – Kontron, a leading global provider of IoT/Embedded Computing Technology (ECT), presents the third generation of its high-end industrial computers in Box PC format - the KBox C-103-CFL series - at SPS 2019. The systems are based on the latest Intel® Core and Intel® Xeon® E processors of the ninth generation with up to six processor cores and thus provide an enormous performance boost with ever constant power dissipation. Thanks to their substantial number of M.2, mPCIe and PCI Express® expansion slots, the systems are characterized by high flexibility and expandability; customer-specific adaptations can thus be implemented quickly and without any design risk. All systems of the KBox C-103-CFL family are specifically designed for use in control cabinets in automation environments. In addition to the control and visualization of machines or inspection and AI-based vision applications, Soft-PLC applications can also be implemented using the optional NVRAM and the integration of fieldbus extensions. The KBox C-103-CFL is currently available with two PCI Express® slots; further variants with up to four slots will follow during the first quarter of 2020. 

The systems of the KBox C-103-CFL series are equipped with powerful CPUs of 9th generation Intel® Corei3, i7 or Inte Xeon® E processors; the Intel® Core i5 is based on the 8th generation. The maintenance-free system enables fanless operation up to 75 degrees Celsius; the Goldcap option and redundant power supplies as well as the recovery functionality guarantee maximum system availability and a long life time. 

In addition to up to three display ports and up to four GB Ethernet interfaces, the KBox C-103-CFL family features up to four PCI Express®, one mPCIe and three M.2 expansion slots. Up to two COM ports incl. RS485 option, three USB 3.0 and three USB 2.0 ports,as well as up to four SATA slots ensure maximum flexibility and expandability. For secure communication and connection to the cloud, the industrial computers support TPM V2.0 encryption and the Kontron APPROTECT security solution based on Wibu-Systems CodeMeter®. Kontron APPROTECT Licensing also enables new business models such as 'pay-per-use' or time-based trial versions.
