ATX-KBL-S: ATX Industrial Motherboard with 7th Gen Intel® Core™ / Celeron® S-Series Processors

High-performance Secure Platform for Industrial Automation Applications

ATX-KBL-S Spec Features

Kontron, a leading global provider of IoT / Embedded Computing Technology (ECT), wholeheartedly recommends an ATX industrial embedded motherboard, named ATX-KBL-S, designed for system integrators to quickly, easily and cost-effectively develop upgraded computing systems for industrial automation applications, such as motion control, machine vision and optical inspection, to replace existing legacy systems.

Remarkable Performance and Security Enhancement

The ATX-KBL-S is powered by 7th Generation Intel® Core™ / Celeron® S-Series processors and features significant visual performance enhancement in 3D graphics and 4K video playback when compared to the models with previous-generation processors. It can deliver expected speed and reliability to process the growing workloads, especially the visual data, as newer and more sophisticated applications are introduced. In addition to processor’s enhanced silicon-based security features, the board integrates latest TPM 2.0 security chip and can provide stronger security protection on a deep hardware level, enabling securer connection from edge to cloud in an industrial IoT application.

Flexible Application-specific Expandability

The expandability of PCI- and PCIe-based application-specific plug-in modules is an important feature for industrial automation systems. The ATX-KBL-S reserves four PCI slots, one PCIe x16 slot and two PCIe x4 slots for possible application expansions. Here are some popular application scenarios: the PCI slots can be used to install motion control cards to control the movement and speed of the axes of a machine; or to install digital I/O or CAN I/O control cards to control devices. The PCIe slots are usually used to accommodate video capture cards to capture videos / images from cameras or other video sources; or to accommodate data acquisition cards to acquire data from sensors or other input sources.

Resistant against Harsh Environmental Conditions

In some industrial application scenarios, the equipments may be installed on the high- / low-temperature factory floors or outdoors. The resistance against extraordinary temperatures is an important requirement to ensure optimal performance. The ATX-KBL-S includes an extended-temperature model with operating temperature range from -20 °C to 70 °C, allowing integrators to develop rugged systems for harsh environmental conditions.

The list below summarizes the features and specifications of ATX-KBL-S.
