Kontron, a leading global provider of IoT / Embedded Computing Technology (ECT), wholeheartedly recommends a brand new box PC, named KBox E-300 Series, for entry-level IoT edge computing applications.


Higher Computing / Graphics Performance with Low Power Consumption

KBox E-300 Series is powered by Intel’s next-generation SoC processors, Atom® E3900 Series & Celeron® / Pentium® N-Series (formerly codenamed Apollo Lake), which provides around 30 % processing performance upgrade in comparison to its predecessors while the power consumption still remains low at 6 W ~ 12 W TDP. With Intel’s 7th-generation graphics engine integrated, the graphics performance has 40 % to 45 % upgrade as well and is able to bring more powerful support to 4K Ultra HD resolution output.


Platform for Harsh Conditions and Ruggedized Applications

Enclosed within a sealed rugged aluminum housing with passive cooling techniques, KBox E-300 Series guarantees highly reliable silent operation against environmental disturbances, such as vibration, shock, moisture, dust and contaminants. Furthermore, it is made with a completely cabless design inside, providing higher reliability and suitable for ruggedized applications. Several extended-temperature models are offered in this series and allow installation under extreme temperatures up to 70 °C and down to -20 °C.


Small Footprint

KBox E-300 Series has a small footprint, around within a palm-sized area, and can be easily integrated into most machine, custom enclosure, control cabinet or even the narrow space behind the monitor.


Efficient Storage Option and Flexible Wireless Expansion

Abandoning traditional SATA hard drive, KBox E-300 Series adopts mSATA SSD or M.2 SSD as its storage media for operating system or data, which benefits itself with several advantages including small form factor, low power consumption, shock / vibration resistance and fast boot / shutdown capabilities. There is an Micro SD card cage located on the front I/O panel as well to provide an expandable memory space to multimedia file retrieval or data logging applications. In addition, users can flexibly extend Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and / or 3G / LTE wireless networking capabilities to the system via one mPCIe socket and two M.2 sockets (Key A and Key B respectively).


KBox E-300 Series is positioned as an entry-level platform suitable for a variety of IoT edge computing, automation and infotainment applications, such as manufacturing process control, factory automation, machine automation, Kiosk, self-service, ATM and vending machine. The list below summarizes its features and specifications mentioned above.
