Embedded PC

The CX1030 Embedded PC is DIN rail mounted and equipped with a 1.8 GHz Intel Pentium M processor. The CX1030 CPU is cooled by a passive cooling module and an easily exchangeable fan cartridge located on the underside of the housing. In addition to the CPU and the chipset, the CX1030 module contains 256 MB DDR RAM (standard), which is expandable to 512 MB or 1 GB. Operating without the use of a hard drive, embedded PCs boot from Compact Flash. The Compact Flash cards are available in 64 MB as well as 1-, 2- and 4 GB. The basic configuration of the CX1030 includes a removable 64 MB Compact Flash card and two Ethernet RJ 45 interfaces.
