Axiomtek – a world-renowned leader relentlessly devoted in the research, development, and manufacturing of innovative and reliable industrial computer products of high efficiency – is pleased to announce its partnership with Hilscher, a leading manufacturer and service provider for communication solutions and automation. By integrating Hilscher’s industrial FieldBus mPCIe module, Axiomtek’s eBOX671A edge computing system can support most of the widely adopted industrial automation protocols, including Modbus, PROFINET, PROFIBUS, EtherNet/IP, OPC UA, etc., to ensure reliable communication with different-branded systems in the same network.
“The partnership between Axiomtek and Hilscher gives system integrators the extensibility to choose functions needed without purchasing costly extra devices with functions that are never used. Our latest edge computer, the eBOX671A, integrates with Hilscher’s Fieldbus protocol modules, ensuring easy configuration within a single interface operation and immediate transfer of field data to resolve protocol conversion issues and create a seamless end-to-end connection for Industry 4.0,” said Jason Kao, the product manager of the Product PM Division at Axiomtek.
The eBOX671A is designed with high computing power, easy integration, reliable operation, and rich I/O connectivity to meet the requirements of various applications at the edge, from smart production, machine automation, and production testing to the smart warehouse. This embedded box PC is powered by the high-performance Intel® Xeon®, 10th generation Intel® Core™ i9/i7/i5/i3 or Celeron® processor with the Intel® W480E chipset. Four GbE LAN ports with optional PoE supported allow this advanced embedded computer to connect IP cameras or any PoE powered device. The eBOX671A has an M.2 Key B 3050 slot for 5G wireless connections and a flexible I/O window slot for ease of customization. Moreover, the eBOX671A can run in harsh environments with a wide operating temperature range of -40°C to +70°C and vibration endurance for up to 3G.
