FALCON passive 2 with conduction cooling – the new highlight in Janz Tec’s Mini-ITX series
Janz Tec launches another system in its Mini-ITX Compact FALCON series: the FALCON passive 2. The new industrial PC system features smart passive conduction cooling with a flexible heat conductor (FHC).
The flexible 70 mm heat conductor used in the FALCON passive 2 can expand and contract by ± 2.5 mm and is particularly suitable for use in Mini-ITX systems with Intel Core i processors. It exploits the excellent conductivity of an aluminium block and is fitted with innovative springs. In combination with the specially designed housing, the flexible heat conductor provides powerful and reliable conduction cooling unrivalled in the industry – for the entire service life of the system. The FALCON passive 2 is specially conceived for use in applications that not only call for a compact design, but are also intended for use in environments that prevent active cooling, e.g. due to dust or other factors.
Power supply is provided via a 12 V DC DIN, a 12-24 V DC Phoenix or a 12/15-36 V DC jack connector. It is available with AAEON EMB-Q170B, Advantech AIMB-275G2, Fujitsu D3433-S2 or DFI SD103-Q170NRM mainboards together with either of the following Intel processors:
•Intel® Core™ i7-7700T Processor with 8 MB cache, up to 3.80 GHz TDP 35 W with configurable TDP-down TDP 25 W and with configurable TDP-down frequency 1.90 GHz
•Intel® Core™ i5-7500T Processor with 6 MB cache, up to 3.30 GHz TDP 35 W with configurable TDP-down frequency 1.70 GHz
The configurable TDP-down is a processor operating mode in which the CPU behaviour and performance can be set to specific values by lowering the TDP and processor frequency. The configurable TDP-down is typically used to optimise power consumption and performance. The configurable TDP-down is the average power consumption (in watts) that the CPU draws while operating under the configurable TDP-down frequency at a highly complex workload, as defined by Intel.
Furthermore, it is possible to use additional interfaces in the 2 low profile slots and 2 D-SUB DE-9 breakouts, depending on the mainboard used, making the FALCON passive 2 ideally suited for use in industrial automation and robotics applications.
Individual adaptations and customised housing designs are already available in limited production runs.
