Saelig Company, Inc. announces the debut of CANatomBOX™, a versatile, compact embedded controller targeted for Windows-based embedded CANbus control applications. Based on Intel’s 945GME 1.6GHz Atom™ processor, this controller box is constructed using high-reliability components, and is application-customizable even in small quantities, with a wide variety of hardware and software options. With 512MB SD-RAM and 2GB in CompactFlash, this system boots quickly, has passive cooling, with no moving parts at all. DIN-rail mounted units can be placed almost anywhere, due to the very small dimensions: (3.7” x 6.3” x 9.0” for standard version; 5.7” X 6.3” X 9.0” for 2-PCI-slot version).
Intel®’s Atom™ processor’s new micro architecture was developed specifically for enhanced performance and low power. Atom™ processors feature multiple threads for better performance and increased system responsiveness. They offer increased energy efficiency in more compact designs, extending battery life with low idle and average power.
Standard interface connections for CANatomBOX™ are provided on the front panel, and Windows Vista/XP/CE, Linux (or other choices such as QNX or VxWorks) can be preinstalled together with other application software to exactly fit customer needs. CoDeSys SoftPLC runtime environment is also supported on this platform. Every CANatomBOX™ system is 100% tested and customizable with additional I/O or CANbus ports, even in low volumes, with design-team hardware and software support provided at no extra cost. CANatomBOX™‘s guaranteed lifetime of a minimum of five years is essential when designing-in controllers for medical or military and aerospace equipment.
CANatomBOX™ features front-panel availability for two independent 10/100MBit/s Ethernet ports, status LED’s, an RS232 serial port, two opto-isolated CAN ports, two USB2.0 ports, I/O lines, etc. Units are 10-28VDC powered, making them ideal for battery-powered operation. CANatomBOX™ is designed to operate within an ambient temperature range of 0 to +50° C (32° F to 120° F). All inputs feature ESD protection of 2kV. Fanless operation provides fit-and-forget, maintenance-free operation, making CANatomBOX™ the perfect solution for a wide variety of embedded automation needs where reliability is imperative.
