Extremely good: The Zoo Basel and the spo-book WINDBOX III Advanced

The Zoo Basel, also known as “Zolli”, is with its establishment in July 1874 not only the oldest in Switzerland but has approximately 600 different animal species and with about 6,500 animals (data from 2015) the largest zoological animal population in Switzerland.

Challenge

Such a unique zoo like the one in Basel is anything but boring.
This goes not only for the millions of visitors. Covering an area of almost 16 football fields there is a lot to do for the employees and volunteers of the Zolli. Day and night. From documentation work to organizational matters to animal care. That especially the latter is very important in the zoological garden goes without saying. Twenty-four hours a day the guards read every wish in the animal’s eyes in order to ensure that they are not missing anything.
Therefore the staff is supported, among others, by security cameras which allow the guards to keep an eye on the animals around the clock.
In order to control the cameras there are used particularly robust industrial PCs. These PCs are able to stay cool even in the tropical climates of the enclosures.

Solution

Therefore the spo-book WINDBOX III Advanced is the perfect solution.
The Mini-PC does not only provide enough security but also comes for use as a time acquisition unit as well as for everyday office purposes. Due to the robust metal housing and the passively cooled construction, the system feels fit as a fiddle even in the slightly warmer and partly damp enclosures of the Zolli. An i5 processor with Broadwell core and up to 2.7 GHz, a RAM capacity of up to 16 gigabytes and a wide range of interfaces make the spo-book WINDBOX III Advanced flexibly usable.

Result

The cooperation with the Zoo Basel is a very unique experience for spo-comm and for the WINDBOX III Advanced as well. Because who else has the opportunity to see an elephant enclosure from the inside?

22 May 2018 Array ( [id] => 330 [title] => NEW: spo-book WINDBOX III EVO – Configuration diversity for every application field [authorId] => [active] => 1 [shortDescription] => Together with the Taiwanese partner MSI IPC the spo-comm developed a new Mini-PC from the well-known WINDBOX series. We present to you: The WINDBOX III EVO. With the already existing quality of the WINDBOX series that stands for a versatile application scenario, its reliability and an unbeatable price, the new model of this line convinces us, too. [description] =>

As well as the predecessor models, the WINDBOX III EVO has the measurements 300 x 196 x 30 mm and can still be mounted behind monitors or under office desks by help of the standard VESA-mountings (see also “What is VESA?”). It also has the same weight as the older models which makes it really easy to integrate the PC into already existing systems.

Improved performance and consistent WINDBOX features

Our new spo-book WINDBOX III EVO is equipped with a seventh generation Intel Core i5 processor that works with up to 3,1 Gigahertz and is supported by a RAM where you can choose up to 32GB. Thereby demanding multi monitoring is possible but also single running applications can use the CPU performance perfectly. The main feature of the WINDBOX is still the passive cooling system: Absolute silent working in places where this is totally necessary is no problem. With the wide range temperature from -10° Celsius to 50° Celsius and the completely closed metal housing, through which dust and dirt can’t reach the interior, this Mini-PC can be used for applications with difficult conditions. The high quality of the components makes sure the Embedded-PC can be used 24/7.

Interface diversity for every application field

With the large amount of video outputs the WINDBOX III EVO conquers the Digital Signage field in a new way: One DVI- and two DisplayPort-interfaces can control up to three monitors at the same time – no matter if you want to play the same or different content (see also “VGA, DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI – what’s the difference between these multimedia interfaces?”). The high claims of this application field are for sure fulfilled by this Embedded-PC: Without any delays 4K-content can be played. The standard of 1080p in the Digital-Signage field is also removed by this.

The high variety of interfaces guarantees that the WINDBOX III EVO can work together with already existing configurations. Due to two Gigabit-LAN-interfaces and an optional WiFi and Bluetooth network connections can be made, but also wireless data transfer is possible.

Equipped with 6 USB ports – four of them after the latest 3.0 standard – the Mini-PC can be connected to numerous systems and external storage media. By choosing your desired configuration the WINDBOX III EVO can be adapted to every application scenario.

No Windows 7 support

As of now, Intel and Microsoft do not longer provide a driver support for Kabylake-CPUs with Windows 7. For our customers this means that in the future we only offer support for Windows 10.

With immediate effect you can configure, test and buy our new WINDBOX III EVO on our website.

NEW: spo-book WINDBOX III EVO – Configuration diversity for every application field

Together with the Taiwanese partner MSI IPC the spo-comm developed a new Mini-PC from the well-known WINDBOX series. We present to you: The WINDBOX III EVO. With the already existing quality of the WINDBOX series that stands for a versatile application scenario, its reliability and an unbeatable price, the new model of this line convinces us, too.

Lokoma's product

If you take a look in Lokoma’s e-catalog, you will quickly notice that the range is characterized by high quality. Both the wide range of products and the modular composition of them guarantee that you will quickly find what you are looking for. Anyone who chooses one of the drawer shelf-based cabinet systems makes an excellent choice. Depending on customer requirements, the drawers can be combined in any number and height. No matter if it is a compartment within the drawers, or even the individual locking of drawers and their compartments, Lokoma meets the individual wishes of everyone. The icing on the shelf systems is the integrated optical display of the storage bins. The user is guided by a touch panel, which, thanks to its intuitively designed software, allows inexperienced users to quickly and transparently access the stored items. The documentation of the access, as well as the granting of individual access rights give the whole the finishing touch.

Product solution from spo-comm

The touch panel is controlled by a Mini-PC, which, as expected, comes straight out of the rows of spo-comm GmbH. The WINDBOX III Evo, which msi ipc has brought to market in cooperation with spo-comm in 2018, serves Lokoma’s racking systems as a rock-solid foundation. Thanks to the fanless cooling system, the industrial computer itself can be installed behind the lock and key without relying on active air circulation. The flat design, as well as the VESA compatibility of the Embedded-PC make it possible to find a suitable place for installation even with limited storage space.

The smoother surface operation of the touch panel is ensured by a standard integrated Intel Core i5 of the seventh generation. If you value a generous memory, you can also upgrade your WINDBOX III Evo with 32 GB of RAM.

Result

The recipe for worry-free storage and operating facilities is made up of Lokoma's solid shelving systems and high-performance as well as fail-safe Mini-PCs made by spo-comm.

If you are not convinced yet, you will find further information on Lokoma’s website and also some information about the WINDBOX III Evo from spo-comm right there:
