This I/O Server Industrial PC has UL certification for Class I Division 2 Group A, B, C, D hazardous locations with volatile substances. This approval permits use of the I/O Server fanless embedded computer and its plug-in I/O modules in environments with flammable liquids, gases, or vapors. The I/O Server can be installed closer to sensors and actuators to reduce installation costs. Additionally, it does not have internal cables, and conduction cooling removes heat without open vents or fans for more reliable operation from -40 to 75° C. The device is a compact, industrial- grade computer with an Intel Atom® or AMD Geode® CPU and an integrated carrier card that holds up to four plug-in I/O modules to perform measurement and control functions. More than 20 I/O modules are available for high-density A/D, D/A, discrete level control, counter/timer, and serial communication functions.
