Taipei, Taiwan, March 27 2023 – Advantech, a leading provider of embedded platform solutions, has announced the release of its newest addition to the rugged UTC-500 all-in-one touch computer series: the UTC-520IT. This 21.5-inch all-in-one system is designed for harsh environments and features all-around IP66/69K-rated ingress protection with a corrosion-resistant stainless steel housing. Equipped with M12 I/O connectors, the UTC-520IT provides a watertight solution that can withstand the most demanding applications.
The UTC-520IT features an 11th Gen Intel® i5-1145G7E processor that offers up to 19% better energy efficiency over its 10th Gen predecessors and supports vPro for easy remote management with DDR4-3200 memory, up to 64 GB. With integrated Intel® Iris® Xe Graphics, the UTC-520IT expedites graphics performance, making it an ideal choice for graphics-intensive tasks.
Designed for mission-critical industrial applications, this rugged all-in-one computer can work 24/7 under a wide range of operating temperatures (-10 ~ 50 °C / 14 ~ 122 °F) and supports wide input voltage (12 ~ 32 V). The 21-inch 16:9 widescreen monitor can display landscape or portrait content; the system also supports multiple OS, including Windows and Linux, further increasing overall compatibility and flexibility. Moreover, the system can be integrated with optional camera modules, light sensors, and a waterproof Wi-Fi receiver for a cable-free connection to extend functionality for diverse applications. This expandable design offers enhanced operation for various uses, including a factory HMI, semi-outdoor computing platform, or livestock herd management control panel.
Rugged Touch Computer with Full IP66/69K-Rated Protection
Advantech’s UTC-520IT is built to provide a tough high-performance touch computer that can be deployed in harsh industrial environments. To ensure optimal operation under extreme conditions, the corrosion-resistant stainless steel enclosure is IP66/69K-rated for resistance to water and dust ingress, providing robust protection in case of exposure to chemicals or bad weather. Like the other UTC series products, UTC-520IT also features a low-power, fanless design for superior energy efficiency, quiet operation, and an extended product lifecycle.
M12 Connectors Ensure a Waterproof Industrial Solution
The UTC-520IT system’s I/O ports are equipped with M12 connectors for industrial applications requiring a reliable waterproof computing system. The advantages of M12 connectors for industrial cabling include easy assembly, compact size, and secure connection even under shock or vibration. With M12 connectors, the UTC-520IT is an industrial-grade touch computer that can be quickly deployed, tested, and maintained.
Wide Operating Temperature and Input Voltage for Factory Environments
Unlike consumer-grade all-in-one units, this rugged all-in-one computer supports a wide operating temperature range of -10 ~ 50 °C (14 ~ 122 °F) to ensure stable operation and reliable performance under extreme temperature variations. Combined with the wide input voltage range (12 ~ 32 V), this allows switching between power sources without converters, making the UTC-520IT66/69K ideal for factory environments.
