Advantech Releases Latest in Expert Machine Vision Series: EPC-P3000 with Intel 9th Gen CORE-i Desktop CPU Platform
February, 2020, Taipei – Advantech, a leading company of embedded system solutions, is proud to release its newest embedded PC product line geared toward machine vision applications: the EPC-P3000 series. Powered by the Intel 9th Gen Desktop CPU platform, EPC-P3000 supports high computing performance with multiple expansion slots, enabling the deployment of high-accuracy machine vision at the edge. Edge computers, integrated with IP cameras and specific peripherals, can recognize, categorize, and label thousands of different packages in unmanned warehouses while holistically analyzing the manufacturing process and controlling robotic arms in fully automated factories.
High Performance for Heavy Workloads and Multi-Tasking
The EPC-P3000 series features an Intel 9th Gen Desktop CPU platform—delivering the performance needed for smart factory activities like deploying video AI algorithms for object recognition and dispatching hundreds of packages towards different endpoints simultaneously. The intricate algorithm offers an ideal solution for improving system response time when facing heavy workloads.
Plentiful Expansion Options for Industrial Machine Vision Applications
Among all scenarios for machine vision edge computing, the GPU cards, PoE, motion control cards, and capture cards are required to form different combinations according to various applications. EPC-P3000 supports 4 PCIe expansion slots, corresponding riser cards, and 1 Advantech iDoor. Dedicated edge computers can be configured by simply inserting specific PCIe cards and iDoor options. Plentiful expansion options make the EPC-P3000 series highly flexible for the industrial AIoT market.
Multiple I/O Ports Support Different Peripherals
The EPC-P3000 series comes with 6 COM ports, 16bits GPIO, HDMI, VGA, 6 USB 3.0, 1 iDoor, 4 PCIe/PCI slot (4 different types), and a remote power connector (2x3P) allowing users to consolidate legacy and modern peripherals in one computing system while building data streaming into multiple routing devices. EPC-P3000 is capable of managing peripheral settings to support a wide spectrum of peripherals in AIoT industrial applications.
Value-Added Software for Remote System Management
Advantech WISE-PaaS/DeviceOn is a software solution designed to remotely manage edge computers. The software helps prevent system failure by monitoring hardware and software operations instantaneously. Over-the-air software installation saves on maintenance and labor costs. The BIOS can be remotely updated through this DeviceOn and the BIOS recovery mechanism guards the system against unexpected interruptions from BIOS updates. WISE-PaaS/DeviceOn enhances the reliability of EPC-P3000 series products while reducing total cost of ownership.
