They can be operated under extreme as well as under normal conditions without the need of fans. All MPL PIP solutions can be assembled according to your needs.

The PIP8 Specialities

Among many specialities the extreme low power consumption is extraordinary, depending on the application running it is typically 10 Watt up to 16 Watt. Next to standard PC/AT features the PIP8 offers ideal characteristics for a industrial environment like:

  • Lowest power, high performance
  • Wide temperature range (-40°C/+75°C)
  • Fanless operation
  • Integration of HDD, Flash, PC/104, …
  • Long term availability
  • Complete family all in the same housing
  • Additional functions easy to add

These features make the PIP8 to the ideal and compact solution where high processing power, long term availability, low power consumption and high quality is needed. The PIPs are used in telecom, medicine, vehicles, office as well as in any industrial applications.

Extended Temperature Option

ReferenceDescription
XTEST-2extended temperature test -40° C up to +75° C

For deployment in harsh environments, the PIP8 can be ordered in an extended temperature version. Every system needs to pass various tests in a environmental chamber to prove that it will perform flawless over the temperature range indicated.
Please note: In order to get a system that will operate under these conditions, all additional selected components like hard disks or extension cards have to be specified or tested for conformity to the extended temperature range.
