The spo-book BRICK J1900 - Evolution in its third generation

The spo-book BRICK J1900 is the third generation of the BRICK series, which has been developed together with the MSI IPC since 2009. The new industrial-PC is based on a housing made completely of metal that has a compact design and dissipates waste heat without the use of a fan, and is thus completely passive.

Wide field of application due to high connectivity

The spo-book BRICK J1900 is also equipped with comprehensive connectivity, enabling it to be used in a wide field of application. Up to four gigabit-LAN connections, 6 COM ports as well as VGA and HDMI ports and three USB interfaces (including USB 3.0) extend the field of application of the BRICK J1900 beyond conventional environments.

Thanks to the excellent material choice and finishing of the spo-book BRICK J1900, the mini PC can be used in an extended temperature range from -10°C to +50°C. For all the many technical highlights mentioned, the latest version of the series only measures 200 x 55 x 150 mm.

24 Jun 2015 Array ( [id] => 152 [title] => spo-book FLEX J1900 - Flexibility in a robust metal housing [authorId] => [active] => 1 [shortDescription] => With the FLEX J1900, which was developed in collaboration with MSI IPC, spo-comm is underlining its own claim of supplying both efficient and flexible mini PCs for use in the corporate sector. Both the hardware, constructed on a modular basis, and the robust basic housing of the FLEX J1900 satisfy the highest demands. [description] =>

High-quality choice of materials for industrial application areas

The entire housing of the FLEX J1900 is made of highly resistant metal, which ensures that this industrial PC functions smoothly even in adverse external conditions. At the same time, installation and start-up of the FLEX J1900 are made easy thanks to the assembly bracket that comes with the device. Further safety measures include a mains adapter which is screwed directly onto the system and rules out the possibility of the power supply being interrupted. The power supply need only supply a maximum of 30 watts of power in order to ensure continuous operation of the FLEX J1900, thanks primarily to the energy-saving Intel components in the system’s interior.

Modular embedded-PC increases flexibility

As of today, spo-comm customers can order the FLEX J1900 with a wide range of performance characteristics, as a way of adjusting the system performance to suit their own needs. As well as the firmly installed Intel CPU with four cores, the FLEX J1900 can also be fitted with up to 8 gigabytes of DDR3-RAM. A hard drive with up to 500 gigabytes of space is available to provide storage of a sufficiently high volume of data. However, this can also be exchanged for a faster SSD hard drive with Sandforce controller. The FLEX J1900 mini PC can also be expanded to include a WLAN module for rapid data exchange with mobile devices, in order to ensure a stable network connection even without a network cable.

Highly robust and highly compatible

The extremely robust metal housing mentioned above features low power consumption and a SMART fan. These precautionary measures make it possible to use this industrial PC in a broader temperature range from -10° to 60°C, without performance being impaired by these extreme changes in temperature. The FLEX J1900 also relies on interfaces that have been tried and tested in embedded PCs over a number of years – seven USB ports, one of which relies on the rapid USB 3.0 standard, provide the freedom to connect several peripheral devices to the system at the same time, while five COM ports make it possible to connect older hardware, which is encountered in the industrial sector on a regular basis.

Free choice of operating systems

Although Windows 7 and Windows 8 are currently the most widespread operating systems for all kinds of PC, spo-comm also provides all customers with the option of switching to Windows Embedded as a tried-and-tested operating system for this industrial PC. This step also significantly increases the compatibility and flexibility of the FLEX J1900. To ensure maximum ease of use in conjunction with other systems also in a Linux-dominated IT environment, it is also possible to order the system with a pre-installed Linux distribution. What's more, all operating systems are also available in 32 or 64-bit versions, in order to guarantee seamless compatibility with all kinds of software.

Manufactured for long-term use

The robust and flexible design of the FLEX J1900, which can accommodate up to two monitors via VGA or HDMI and which also provides two gigabit network connections, is supplied by spo-comm with a warranty of up to five years. This means that the system achieves an excellent price-performance ratio and can be exchanged quickly and easily in the event of damage. The successful collaboration with MSI IPC has thus been continued with the FLEX J1900, which is available as of now. The partnership is also sure to yield further interesting industrial products through spo-comm in the future.

More disk space for almost all spo-books

From now on almost all Mini-PC and Panel PC systems from our company are equipped with a 500GB hard drive in standard, instead of 320 GB capacity as before.
6 May 2015 Array ( [id] => 145 [title] => The spo-book TECH QUAD - a Mini-PC for network applications [authorId] => [active] => 1 [shortDescription] => A new Mini-PC specially built for use in networks is our latest product. [description] =>

Throughout the development process, we were focused primarily on the requirements of customers, who can apply this Mini-PC in a range of areas. Furthermore, the TECH QUAD uses tried and tested standard components making it compatible with a multitude of operating systems and allowing the creation of diverse software solutions.

An Intel Quad Core CPU rated at 4x 2.0 GHz works passively cooled. Up to 8 GB of RAM means the memory is readily suited to high demands. Four Gigabit network ports with an Intel controller are key components of the system.

The TECH QUAD from spo-book has a so-called bypass-function on two LAN ports. This makes it possible to implement fault tolerant filters and loggers. The positioning of indicator lights on the front and the various connections on the back makes the Mini-PC suitable for fitting or mounting—its small dimensions 219 x 40 x 151 mm make for easy placement requiring very little space. The system is passively cooled without using any fans.

Its robust metal housing means the TECH QUAD is well suited to any environment. The user can choose from a selection of operating systems - Windows 7 or 8, Windows Embedded as well as Linux.
