NEW: spo-book MOVE N3160: Fanless Outdoor and Vehicle-PC

With the spo-book MOVE N3160, spo-comm GmbH is bringing its range of Vehicle-PCs up to date. With its quad-core CPU and numerous special features, this fanless Mini-PC is the perfect introduction to the world of vehicle computing.

Certified Vehicle-PC

The spo-book MOVE N3160 is the latest model in the passively cooled MOVE series, which has been specially designed for use in all kinds of vehicles. The wide-range power input (9-36 volts), the optional battery for up to ten minutes of emergency operation and various optional additional modules such as 3G/4G or GPS all ensure first-class vehicle computing. In addition, the Mini-PC has been tested to American military standards to be vibration-proof and impact-proof.

Outdoor use in extreme temperatures

The Vehicle-PC with dimensions of just 250 x 55 x 150 millimetres is equipped with a fanless Intel quad-core CPU with four 1.6 (max. 2.24) GHz cores. Thanks to passive cooling, the Mini-PC can be operated in an extended temperature range of -40 to 70 degrees Celsius. This also makes it suitable for outdoor use where heating or cooling options are not available. Furthermore the Mini-PC comes with eight GPIO ports (2 in/2 out DIO) and a dual SIM slot for operation with two independent mobile networks. A CAN bus is also optionally available.

Vehicle Computing by spo-comm

As the name suggests, the MOVE Series is a classic for use in vehicles of all kinds. Special transformers, optional batteries and numerous modules for mobile applications (3G/4G, GPS) ensure smooth operation in every imaginable vehicle. Thanks to passive heat management and particularly robust construction, usage within an extended temperature range of-40°C to 70°C is no problem.

Mini-PC with Masses of Content

The inner workings of the typically compact industrial PCs provides a few surprises, with numerous options that propel vehicle computing to a new level. In the rugged and fanless metal casing measuring 250x55x150mm, there’s space for up to two HDDs or SSDs as well as modules for mobile networking (3G/4G), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS. Thanks to the dual SIM slot, it’d even possible to use two completely separate mobile networks.

spo-book MOVE QM87 – Vehicle Computing with Every Refinement
The spo-book MOVE QM87 is a vehicle solution with a powerful Intel Core i5 CPU, fanless heat management and numerous additional features.

VR for industry and special features of vehicle PCs [authorId] => [active] => 1 [shortDescription] => At the end of the year we are talking about a topic that is on everyone’s lips: Virtual reality, which is also important for industry 4.0. Furthermore we look at two special features of our vehicle PCs. [description] =>

Virtual Reality: Also for industry 4.0

For applications in the industrial environment, applications from the areas of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) are increasingly being developed. In industry 4.0 numerous applications are possible: In addition to the training of employees, customers and business partners (e.g. flight simulators, operating rooms, but also hard-to-reach places such as power plants), VR is also interesting for design, development and presentation. In virtual reality, products, assemblies, systems and processes can be simulated and are interactively accessible. Currently, however, there is still a lack of decent hardware, since VR applications place high demands on the processor and graphics performance of a Mini-PC.

Integrated battery: More reliability

The vehicle PCs of the MOVE series from spo-comm can all be ordered with an optional battery pack. If, for instance, the power fails or the ignition in the car unexpectedly breaks down, the PC runs operated by battery and shuts down automatically, if it doesn’t get power again. Among other things, this is interesting in the measurement technology, as data can still be saved. In addition, a hard shutdown isn’t good for PCs, since the operating system can be damaged sooner or later.

Not just for border crossers: Two mobile networks

Our new models of the MOVE series each have two SIM card slots and therefore it is possible to rely on two mobile networks (3G or 4G). The advantages are obvious: On the one hand two simultaneous connections can be established, which increases the speed of data transfer. On the other hand, by using two different networks, a larger coverage can be achieved, in order not to suddenly get into a dead zone during transport. This is also interesting for vehicles traveling in the border area. Here it is possible to use the appropriate network for each country.

What’s new? VR for industry and special features of vehicle PCs
At the end of the year we are talking about a topic that is on everyone’s lips: Virtual reality, which is also important for industry 4.0. Furthermore we look at two special features of our vehicle PCs.
14 Dec 2016 Array ( [id] => 230 [title] => Product change in Vehicle Computing: spo-book MOVE QM77 is EOL [authorId] => [active] => 1 [shortDescription] => Our spo-book MOVE QM77, a vehicle-PC with fanless cooling, is pulled from the store and is replaced by the new spo-book MOVE QM87. [description] =>

In order to bring vehicle computing up to date, spo-comm has taken the MOVE QM77 from the range. In its place comes the MOVE QM87 with an Intel Core i5 of the fourth generation.

More connections with same dimensions

The dimensions of the Mini-PC are unchanged and amount to 55 x 250 x 150 millimeters. On the housing, however, we placed more connections. Instead of three, there are now four COM interfaces, two of which are RS422/485. In addition to DVI-I and DisplayPort, the spo-book MOVE QM87 also has a VGA port, so that up to three screens can be connected. Since we are still dealing with a classic Vehicle-PC, the 9-36 V Wide Range power connector, the optional battery and the Mini-PCIe Sots for expansion cards were of course maintained.

Increase in performance

Although the CPU of the new spo-book MOVE QM87 is "just" an Intel Core i5, it is of the fourth generation (Haswell) and therefore more up to date than the Intel Core i7 (third generation, Ivy Bridge) of the MOVE QM77. Therefore the two processors are not only comparable in performance, but the i5 even exceeds the i7 even in most benchmarks, as this comparison shows. In addition to the raise in performance, memory can also be increased. Instead of eight, with the spo-book MOVE QM87 up to 16 gigabytes of RAM are possible.

Although the spo-book MOVE QM77 is EOL, spo-comm still supplies existing projects. And if less power is needed: our "small" vehicle-PCs spo-book MOVE NM10 and MOVE T56N will also be updated shortly.
