The Industrial Automation Group of Advantech has introduced two DIN-rail PCs featuring AMD Geode LX 800, 500-MHz processors, the UNO-1150G and UNO-1150GE. They are equipped with a VGA port, 1 x RS-232 and 2 x RS-232/422/485 ports with automatic data flow control, maximum 921.6 Kbps speed/port, 2 x Ethernet ports, 2 x USB 2.0 ports, audio, and internal CompactFlash. Also, the UNO-1150GE features two PCI-104 slots, one mini-PCI, and one HDD bay for SATA HDD and SSD devices.

They are built with an compact industrial design, including fanless, no internal cabling, ground isolated chassis, IP40 protection, wide operating temperature range (-10 to 60°C), and support remote monitoring through Advantech DiagAnywhere software.

Both not only support a Microsoft Windows CE, Windows XP Embedded and WES2009 with optimized onboard device drivers, but also Embedded Linux and QNX drivers for real-time embedded OS. They are highly suitable to act as microcontrollers and communication gateways for machine automation, factory automation, renewable energy, and building automation applications, according to Advantech.
