New Modular Industrial PC from MEN Micro Provides Cost-effective Customization

Pre-defined software functionality enables rapid time-to-market

BLUE BELL, Pa., April 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MEN Micro Inc., a world-renowned provider of embedded computing and I/O solutions for mission-critical industrial, mobile and harsh environment applications, has introduced a new family of cost-effective modular, industrial PCs with a short time-to-market. 

New Modular Industrial PC from MEN Micro Provides Cost-effective Customization

First in the series, the MH70I is configurable with a wide selection of standard hardware, software and accessories to provide cost-effective customization for a wide range of industrial automation and in-vehicle applications.

The new industrial PC combines scalable high-performance computing and graphics functions as well as reliable system management with pre-installed software support for Windows Embedded Standard 7. This enables an exceptionally fast time-to-market for a custom designed solution, while providing a reliable means of ensuring long-term use.

The MH70I owes its modularity to the combination of cards that make up the heart of the unit.  In addition to the system slot, the MH70I includes two each of CompactPCI and CompactPCI Serial peripheral slots and two each of PCI and PCI Express slots, totaling nine individually-configurable slots in the system. Two additional PSU slots supporting AC, DC and UPS, ensure redundant, reliable operation.

The unit's compact half 19" rack size allows two systems to be placed on one rack side by side.  The MH70I can be either rack- or wall-mounted with natural convection cooling or with an added fan tray at the bottom of the system, depending on the mounting position.

The standard configuration of the MH70I comes with MEN Micro's F22P CompactPCI PlusIO SBC using an Intel Core i7 or Celeron processor with one VGA Interface, two USB ports and two Gigabit Ethernet interfaces on the front.  It also includes up to 16 GB of DDR3 DRAM with ECC.

Functionality is virtually limitless thanks to the various peripheral boards available for the new MH70I, including analog or binary I/O via M-Modules, fieldbus functions, SATA hard disks or wireless functions as well as Ethernet interface boards or Ethernet switches.  A SATA RAID with up to four HDD shuttles can be built using the CompactPCI Serial slots.

Technical Specifications:

  • Up to nine configurable slots in one system
  • Pre-defined software for rapid development
  • Half 19" Rack Size with Cooling By Natural Convection or Fan Tray
  • Operating temperature: 0°C to +50°C
  • Up to 16 GB soldered DDR3 DRAM with ECC
  • Up to four SATA hard disks for RAID

Pricing for the MH70I is dependent upon configuration.  Delivery is six to eight weeks ARO.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Igor Drobiazko, co-founder of elastic.io, drew upon his own experience with operating a Docker container-based infrastructure on a large scale and present a lightweight solution for resource isolation using microservices. He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and containers together help companies achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of Dev...
In his General Session at DevOps Summit, Asaf Yigal, Co-Founder & VP of Product at Logz.io, will explore the value of Kibana 4 for log analysis and will give a real live, hands-on tutorial on how to set up Kibana 4 and get the most out of Apache log files. He will examine three use cases: IT operations, business intelligence, and security and compliance. This is a hands-on session that will require participants to bring their own laptops, and we will provide the rest.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

Updating DevOps to the latest production data slows down your development cycle. Probably it is due to slow, inefficient conventional storage and associated copy data management practices. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in Product and Solution at Tintri, will talk about DevOps and cloud-focused storage to update hundreds of child VMs (different flavors) with updates from a master VM in minutes, saving hours or even days in each development cycle. He will also...
In a recent research, analyst firm IDC found that the average cost of a critical application failure is $500,000 to $1 million per hour and the average total cost of unplanned application downtime is $1.25 billion to $2.5 billion per year for Fortune 1000 companies. In addition to the findings on the cost of the downtime, the research also highlighted best practices for development, testing, application support, infrastructure, and operations teams.
The 20th International Cloud Expo has announced that its Call for Papers is open.
