ALR displayed at science museum

The National Oceanography Centre’s autonomous submersible the Autosub Long Range (ALR) is the centrepiece of a new exhibition at the Science Museum in London, which explores the growing role of artificial intelligence in our daily lives. The free exhibition, Driverless: Who is in control? runs until October 2020 and is expected to be seen by more than a million and a half visitors.

Power for the ALR is provided by Steatite battery packs. The Lithium primary battery packs are housed in the forward of 2 forged spheres contained within the plastic housing of the vehicle.

Designed to operate at depths of up to 6,000m, the ALR is fully autonomous and able to run unaided for weeks at a time. Reliability of the battery system is therefore of paramount importance with the batteries needing to provide a continuous source of power to the vehicle in temperatures as low as 4°c.

Next Gen HPERC

Next Generation HPERC From ADLINK.

We are delighted to introduce the latest additions to our fanless military grade PCs, the HPERC-KBL-MH and HPERC-KBL-MC from ADLINK.

The HPERC-KBL series harnesses the power of the 7th Gen Intel® Xeon® E3-1505M V6 processor and optional GPGPU parallel processing engine based on a NVIDIA Quadro MXM module, rapidly increasing the processing capability of the HPERC-KBL, making it ideal for a range of AI edge inference at the edge and deep learning applications, such as facial recognition, object detection and identification, and visual inspection.

Thanks to the convection cooled (HPERC-KBL-MH) & cold mount plated (HPERC-KBL-MC) design, the HPERC can survive shock, resist corrosion and galvanic oxidation, allowing it to perform in the most extreme of conditions.

New product. The P1101 rugged slimline fanless computer

We are delighted to announce the addition of a new product to our range of rugged fanless computers.

The new P1101 PC from Cincoze is a powerful rugged fanless computer that can be used either as an embedded computer or a system module for an industrial panel PC.

The P1101 has a thin profile giving it a more elagant appearance, but don’t be fooled as this slim design easily accommodates rich I/O interfaces, including 2x Intel GbE LAN, 4x USB 3.0, 4x COM, and 8x Isolated DIO. The system also supports three independent displays running simultaneously and enables smooth 4K/2K playback via DisplayPort.

Powered by Intel® Apollo Lake processors including Intel® Atom® x7-E3950 and Intel® Pentium® N4200, the P1101 is a highly scalable computer supporting 2x mini PCIe slots and 1xSIM socket. In addition, a 2.5” SATA drive bay and a mSATA socket with SATAIII (6 Gb/s) can be installed as a mass storage device. The possibilities are enormous.

The system is protected against power input faults with over-voltage, over-current and power reverse protections, ensuring long-term stable operation in demanding environments.
