Innovations and digitalization solutions for Industry 4.0 and IIoT applications
Ismaning, October 11, 2022 - Kontron, a leading global provider of IoT/Embedded Computing Technology (ECT), will present a wide range of innovative IIoT solutions across the entire value chain at Smart Production Solutions 2022 in Nuremberg from November 8-10. Central topics of Kontron's trade show appearance in Hall 7, Booth 193 are the kontron susietec® toolset for complete digital solutions and services from a single source as well as high-performance edge computing based on the latest Intel® Core™ i processors.
kontron susietec® Toolset - Digitalization made easy
With the holistic digitalization solution susietec®, Kontron has developed a toolset with which different IoT infrastructures can be easily brought together. With this customised and scalable combination of software, hardware and expertise, machine builders, system integrators and manufacturers can achieve their digital transformation goals faster, easier and more cost-effectively. The individual components of the kontron susietec® toolset provide them with digital solution approaches from a single source. At the trade show, the various tools as well as two pre-assembled systems will be shown as HW/SW bundles.
Compact high-performance industrial PCs for harsh environments
Kontron's robust KBox industrial PCs are characterized by high performance, compact design and long-term availability. At SPS 2022, Kontron will showcase the latest addition to the KBox family with 12th Gen Intel® Core™ i processors providing significantly higher computing power than its predecessors. The new KBox R-101 control and communication platform is based on a fanless, passively cooled and IP54-compliant system solution with established and industry-approved mechanical and electronic components. The EN 50155-compliant system as well as all external interfaces are specifically designed for use in railways and public transport as well as in harsh industrial environments.
Embedded motherboards with long-term availability for numerous applications
Kontron presents high-performance graphics and computing power with the expansion of its new motherboard and associated SMARTCASE™ system family based on 12th Gen Intel® Core™ i processors. With the Mini-ATX motherboard, Kontron now offers a product family of new motherboards "Designed and Made in Germany", consisting of Mini-ITX, µATX and ATX. The boards are particularly interesting for all applications with a high demand for PCIe scalability - including PCIe 5.0, which is twice as fast as the previously prevailing PCIe 4.0 standard. They are perfectly suitable for industrial automation, medical technology, high-performance workstations for CAD applications (including gaming PCs) as well as for video editing and video wall displays.
Industrial rackmount systems
Furthermore, the latest members of the Kontron KISS product family in 1U/2U/4U formats for industrial use are also based on 12th Gen Intel® Core™ i processors. The rackmount systems are specifically designed for demanding and challenging environments and are therefore suitable for applications with high temperature environments, mechanical stress conditions and low operating noise.
Kontron will also be presenting the new KWS 3000-ADL industrial workstation, which combines the advantages of an industrial PC in terms of robustness and long-term availability with those of an office PC in terms of design and user-friendliness. Thanks to its 12th Gen Intel® Core™ i processor, it also easily handles computationally intensive applications such as machine/deep learning or AI workflows with performance-hungry processes and large amounts of data.
PiXtend® Pi 4 for higher performance in industrial environments
The new PiXtend® Pi 4 automation system, part of Kontron Electronics’ PiXtend® brand, is based on the Raspberry Pi 4 platform. The Broadcom BCM2711, Quad Core Arm® Cortex®-A72 with 1.5 GHz is the most powerful processor of the Raspberry Pi Foundation. The main field of application of the single-board computer PiXtend® Pi 4, optionally also with CODESYS®, is device and machine construction. Furthermore, the i.MX8M platform, now also with CODESYS® for computationally intensive applications in small spaces, will be presented.
