Kontron introduced the latest member of the KBox series at embedded world 2015, the KBox A-103. The design of the embedded box PC is very compact and, due to the
powerful hardware, ideal for use in factory automation systems. The robust construction also means it is also suitable for use in the harshest industrial environments. The fan- and cable-free box PCs stand out due to a long service life and low power consumption. Long-term availability, no maintenance and a comprehensive service round off the product. What’s more, the box can be equipped with industrial I/Os, field buses and/or industrial Ethernet interfaces. With the tried-and-tested “maintenance-free” design, the KBox A-103 does not require any additional batteries for operation, it is very reliable (high MTBF), easily adapts to customer requirements, and comes with extensive diagnosis functions such as Kontron’s Embedded Application Programming Interface (KEAPI) 3.5. Developers benefit from a library of API functions, which provide hardware information on all new Kontron embedded platforms. These functions ensure the total cost of ownership (TCO) is kept to a minimum.
The new KBox A-103 is equipped with scalable SMARC modules, which have the latest Intel® Embedded-Power-Atom™ processors, up to E3845.
