Add Connectivity and Compute Capabilities to Legacy Equipment with an Ultra Small Computer

By ·Categories: Depend OnLogic·Published On: February 25th, 2022·3 min read·

Looking for an ultra small computer with high capabilities? The small but mighty CL200 Series are fanless computers built for the rigors of industrial applications. The systems include a wide array of features that are critical for deploying dependable, long-lasting industrial, IIoT, monitoring, and data capture solutions.

The CL200 is powered by ultra-efficient Intel® processing. These ultra small computers add compute at the edge to everything from safety monitoring and time-based predictive maintenance, to object recognition or RFID inventory tracking systems. As an x86-based PC, you’re free to choose the software package, off the shelf peripherals and operating system. This includes Windows 10 or Linux – that best suits your application. The CL200 Series makes it easier than ever to add compute power anywhere you need it. Here are a just a few of the ways we’ve designed the CL200 Series to be the perfect fit for your project.

We have engineered the CL200 Series to be the best alternative to industrial ARM and PLC in the market today. The system offers incredible flexibility through wide compatibility with peripherals, software, equipment and cloud services. And it’s all packaged in an incredibly compact form factor.

An Ultra Small Computer to Upgrade Existing Industrial Infrastructure

Easily add connectivity to the cloud for your existing industrial applications by integrating a CL200. The platform’s robust computing capabilities allow for efficient data collection for system management, data analytics & process optimization. Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI),  and other cloud-based applications can benefit from the additional power provided by the CL200 Series to enable:

  • Predictive maintenance – reducing downtime & repair costs
  • Increased data analytics – optimizing industrial processes
  • Work environment safety improvements through vision monitoring
  • Assembly Failure Analysis

Ready for Today’s Leading Cloud Service Providers

The CL200 Series offers options that are AWS Greengrass and Microsoft Azure certified, and can be configured to include the AWS Greengrass Machine Learning (ML) inference pre-loaded. With the CL200 Series you can be ready to deploy world-class edge-compute solutions with on-demand cloud connectivity right out of the box.

An Ultra Small Computer with the Connectivity You Need

Our smallest-ever fanless PCs still offers an array of connectivity options. All models in the CL200 Series feature an RS232 box header, up to two  1GbE LAN ports, dual USB 3.0 or 3.2 Gen 1 ports, and an additional USB 2.0 port for connectivity to peripherals and other equipment. The newest CL250 is available with up to 8 GB or RAM. With an eye toward enabling edge computing applications, the systems in the CL200 Series offer WiFi , Bluetooth, and 4G LTE.

Security Through Intel PTT

The CL200 Series includes Intel’s Platform Trust Technology (PTT), a firmware-based implementation of Trusted Platform Module (TPM) hardware security. PTT allows organizations to establish the same, rigorous levels of security in its compact, fanless systems and devices as it does for desktop PCs, workstations and servers. PTT-enabled IPCs radically shrink the attack surface for systems that often sit unattended in remote or public spaces.

An Industrial PC to Fit your Budget

The CL200 Series delivers great value for deploying edge-compute and cloud-based solutions, without losing the features you need.

In summary, if you’re looking for a highly dependable, industrial PC with an ultra small form-factor, take a close look at the CL200 Series from OnLogic. If you’re building an industrial solution, build it with Logic!
