Kontron: KBox B-202-CFL with compact design, quiet operation and maximum expandability
Kontron announced the addition of the KBox B-202-CFL to its Embedded Box PCs family. The KBox B-202-CFL offers high performance with maximum expandability and low noise level (maximum 34 dB(A)). Due to 8th Gen Intel Core i3/i5/i7 processors and the Intel® Q370 Express Chipset, the KBox B-202-CFL handles CPU-intensive processes and large amounts of data effortlessly. Among the highlights are the expansion options, which include up to two PCIe x8 cards or one PCIe x16, so that graphics or network cards can be easily added. This makes the new KBox B-202-CFL ideal for demanding applications such as high-end image processing, SCADA/MES applications, artificial intelligence and machine learning. In addition, it is EN55032 Class B certified, which means it meets stricter RFI limits than Class A. This makes it suitable not only for use in industrial environments, but also for use in residential and business areas or in their immediate vicinity. Along with its modern design this makes the KBox B-202-CFL the ideal computer for architecture and graphics offices as well as music studios.
The core of the KBox B-202-CFL is a motherboard in the Mini-ITX form factor (170x170 mm) with a CPU with up to six processor cores: Depending on requirements, three 8th Gen Intel Core i3/i5/i7 processors can be selected.
With the KBox B-202-CFL, a 2.5" SSD and an M.2 SSD can be chosen as mass storage. As an alternative to the 2.5" SSD, a Raid system with 2x M.2 SSD can also be installed. Further options with up to four mass storage devices are available on request. The system features two DisplayPorts V1.2 as well as a DVI-D connector. Numerous interfaces such as four USB 2.0, four USB 3.1 Gen 1 and two USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports as well as a serial interface (COM1/RS232) ensure high flexibility. In addition, the system is equipped with two Ethernet ports 10/100/1000 MBit/s (WoL).
The new KBox B-202-CFL is optionally available with a DVD drive. The Box PC supports Windows 10 IoT operating system. The compact housing of the KBox B-202-CFL with the dimensions 190x120x190 mm is made of hot-dip galvanised sheet steel (EN10215) and aluminium. The Box PC is equipped with an almost silent fan and can be operated at a temperature range from 0 to plus 45°C.
