What is an Industrial PC? – IoT Support

Industrial PCIntroduction

An Industrial PC is an x86 PC-Based computing platform that is purpose built for industrial applications.  There are a variety of enclosures available today, such as wall mount, VESA mount or DIN-rail. An Industrial PC is essentially a Single Board Computer, in a ruggedised enclosure.


The main advantages of an Industrial PC, versus a commercial PC are that their temperature range is far greater on an IPC, with the majority of IPCs also passively cooled with no moving parts, minimising failures in the field and offering shock/vibration proofing.

Enclosures are built to be very robust and the hardware within is designed to withstand harsh environments. Industrial PC’s can offer a wide range of power inputs for various installations and the ability to expand your I/O with various expansion cards.
