Box-PCs

Whether powerful with universal and numerous interfaces or precisely adapted to the application. The next system IPC systems suitable for industry stand for reliability and custom-fit performance.

Depending on requirements, mITX mainboards, embedded single board computers or Compact PCI solutions are used. The compact system design and the flexible mounting options offer many advantages in the integration of the industrial PC in existing and new applications. The use of industrial CPU modules (COM, SBC, Compact PCI, AMC, mITX) enables simple scalability. The high level of know-how of next system in the area of temperature management helps in dimensioning of the cooling concept. Together with well-known partners, next system is able to implement robust and maintenance-free customer-specific solutions and to meet the broad requirements of machine, plant and control cabinet manufacturers with extensive standard technology.

Modules & Boards

COM (computer on modules)

Computer on Modules (COM) are small, ready-to-use computing solutions that usually consist of application-independent hardware and software.

Combined with application-specific Carrie Boards, they offer a wide range of possible applications in individual industrial fields such as medical technology, industrial automation, robotics, mechanical and plant engineering and many more. The use of COM solutions brings not only rapid and economically efficient development but also security in the sense of proven and future-proof technology. next system, together with established partners, covers the wide range of different form factors in the COM sector and provides support in the selection, specification and production of customer-specific solutions.

The right hardware and software for every application:

The established COM standard will continue to be developed over 10 years after its introduction to the market. Modules for the extended temperature range are available in all form factors. (E1 from -25 °C to +75 °C or E2 from -40 °C to +85 °C) are available in all form factors.

SBC (single board computer)

Behind the term Single-Board-Computer (SBC) is a processor board, which contains all components necessary for the operation of the system such as the microprocessor, RAM, caches, chipsets, etc.

Peripheral functions for output and input, graphic display or communication control can be added via further plug-in modules. next system and its partners offer a wide range of different form factors for integration in low cost and high-performance industrial applications.

The right hardware and software for every application:

  • Form factor 100 x 72 mm
  • power-saving, powerful, cost-efficient
  • SATA, PATA, USB, DVI, LAN
  • Dual Display (DVI + LVDS)
  • low power consumption
  • ARM and x86 solutions available

Broad Portfolio

Reliable and powerful

Mainboard

next system offers a wide product range of industrial and integrated motherboards ranging in size from mini-ITX to ATX.

In addition, special server-class motherboards are available in various form factors, which are selected according to customer requirements. The high level of know-how of next system and the close and long-standing cooperation with specialized partners ensures the reliable and custom-fit selection and specification of the system. The focus is on long-term availability, life-cycle management and revision control as well as very good design-in support.

  • Main areas of application: Point-of-sales/point-of-information, gaming and infotainment, measurement technology, lottery and banking as well as “classic” applications in industrial PCs
  • Intel® Atom™ bis Intel® Core™ i7 – latest Generation
  • with its 170 x 170 mm Mini-ITX is the smallest compatible motherboard form factor
