Intel Core i7-7500U Kaby Lake
64 bit dual core, 2.7GHz 15W

Thanks to improved Intel HD 620 Graphics GPU and latest generation Intel Kaby Lake i5 CPU, Intense PC3 i7 provides excellent graphics rendering and processing performance perfect for real-time monitoring or video surveillance.

Support for true 4K video encoding/decoding (enhanced feature of the Kaby Lake processor), brings crisp, sharp image quality that signage and CCTV applications will truly benefit from.

IPC3 also offers faster storage and booting time thanks to new M2 B-key slot and is highly recommended for virtualisation and 24/7 applications. IntensePC3 is available with Windows 10 IoT Enterprise LTSB high end.

All enhancements have been extended to the different Face Modules available: USB/USB3.0, Ethernet/Gigabit Ethernet, MiniPCIe, serial ports, Power over Ethernet (PoE), Ethernet bypass, optical networking… allowing precise tailoring of I/Os and perfect use for advanced networking.

Features

IPC3 has the proven ruggedized form-factor of IPC2 with improved passive cooling to enable 7th generation Intel® Core™-i7 to operate at industrial temperature range of -400C to 700C. Compulab provides 5 year warranty on IPC3. Standard IPC3 features include up to 32 GB RAM, multiple storage devices spanning M.2, mSATA and 2.5”, dual 4K display interfaces, dual Gbit Ethernet and support for WiFi and cellular data communication. A key feature of IPC3 is support for FACE Modules – internal extension cards that add special functionality on top of the basic configuration.

FACE Modules

Function And Connectivity Extension Modules allow seamless enhancement of the functionality of IPC3 and other Compulab PCs, like fitlet-T and Airtop. The trio of FACE Modules launched are FM-OPLN, FM-POE 1.1 and FM-EBP.

FM-OPLN – dual Fiber-Optic LAN

FM-OPLN adds dual Gbit Ethernet SFP+ ports for fiber-optic LAN built-in IPC3, thus eliminating the need for external media converter while enabling true fiber-to-the-desk (FTTD) in extremely compact form factor.
Fiber-optic LAN has some benefits over copper LAN, among them – longer transmission distance, immunity to electromagnetic interference and better security.

FM-POE 1.1 – quad Power-over-Ethernet

FM-POE 1.1 has 4 Gbit Ethernet ports with Power-over-Ethernet. Each port is IEEE802.3af compliant and can supply up to 15.4W. Each port has a GbE controller (Intel i211) on a dedicated PCIe lane. Multiple PoE ports are useful for IP cameras, IoT devices, IP telephony, thin clients and other scenarios where reducing cabling is desired.
IPC3 with FM-POE is one of the smallest integrated PoE PCs. It eliminates the need for an external PoE injector while providing full Gbit Ethernet bandwidth to each of the ports. Two additional GbE ports are built-in the basic configuration of IPC3.

FM-EBP – Gigabit Ethernet bypass switch

IPC3 with FM-EBP is a stand-alone PC with integrated Gigabit Ethernet bypass switching. It enables both passive and active switching without the need for heartbeat packets. Ethernet bypass can be directed to an in-line backup PC.
FM-EBP is useful for ensuring continuous network integrity, even in scenarios such as system crash or hardware malfunction.

Other FACE Modules

IPC3 is compatible with other Compulab FACE Modules.
FM-LAN – adds 4 GbE ports on top of the IPC3 built-in dual GbE ports for a total of 6 GbE ports.
FM-SER – adds 6 RS232/RS485 ports on top of the IPC3 built-in 3 RS232 ports for a total of 9 serial ports.
FM-XTDM2 – adds two miniPCIe ports on top of the IPC3 built-in port for a total of 3 miniPCIe ports.
FM-VC – enables connecting to IPC3 up to 16 PAL/NTSC analog cameras with audio for advanced DVR applications.
