PPC-J6412-236-C

Version 1.1

Product Overview

The PPC-J6412 series PPC-J6412-236-C is a rugged, high-quality NEMA 4X/IP65-compliant industrial panel PC. It features a 23.6” multi-point capacitive touch screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

The PPC-J6412-236-C Industrial Panel PC is powered by Intel® Celeron® J6412 quad-core CPU and equipped with a broad range of connectivity options, allowing it to meet highly demanding application requirements in harsh industrial or outdoor environments.

A specially designed magnesium-aluminum alloy housing with fins for increased heat dissipation serves as a passive cooler, eliminating the need for built-in fans. The fan-less design reduces noise, as well as the maintenance costs and efforts, increasing reliability at the same time.

Caution

Be careful when handling the product while it is operating: the back panel might become hot under heavy CPU load.

Power Input

The PPC-J6412-236-C Industrial Panel PC can be powered by a wide range of input voltages: from 9V to 30V DC. The power input connector is a 2-pin, 3.81mm screw terminal. The polarity of the power connector is clearly labelled on the housing itself: the ‘+’ sign is the positive, while the ‘-’ sign is the negative power supply input.

The POWER button is located next to the power input connector and can be used to switch the power ON or OFF.

The power input section of PPC-J6412-236-C features a range of protection features, including over-current, over-voltage, power surge, and reverse polarity protection, allowing it to meet stringent industrial safety regulations.

Connectivity

There are many connectivity options available on the PPC-J6412-236-C industrial PC. It has 4 x USB Type A connectors configured as HOSTS, 1 x HDMI port, 2 x RJ45 connectors supporting Gigabit Ethernet (GbE), and up to 6 x RS232 connectors, of which two can be configured in the RS485 mode.

RS232/485 Connectors

The PPC-J6412-236-C Industrial Panel PC has 2 x 9-pin D-sub connectors and 1 x 16-pin 3.81mm connector with pluggable terminal block. Two 9-pin D-sub connectors labelled as COM1 and COM2 are RS232 communication interfaces.

The top row of terminals on the terminal block is labelled as COM3/4. These terminals are configured as two additional RS232 interfaces by default. The bottom row of terminals on the terminal block are COM6/5, these two COM can be configured to either RS232 or RS485. If they are configured to RS485, the 120 Ohm match resistors are not mounted.
