Greater Los Angeles, CALIFORNIA, March 22, 2023 – Premio Inc., a global leader in rugged edge and embedded computing technology, today reveals the RCO-3000-CML small form factor PC. Supported by Intel 10th generation Comet Lake embedded processors, the all-new RCO-3000-CML is a fanless industrial computer balancing processing performance and modular I/O configurability.
Demonstrations of this new system will occur in booth #3071 at the International Security Conference & Exposition 2023 (ISC West) at the Venetian Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada, from March 29 - 31.
Newly integrated Premio EDGEBoost I/O modules offer modular expansion flexibility for increased connectivity, integration, and automation. Access to Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) technology allows both power and ethernet data to pass through a single cable. Cabling costs are reduced, and the system is poised for greater scalability – optimal considerations for security and surveillance analytics deployments, as well as computer and machine vision, industrial automation, and manufacturing applications.
“Power-over-Ethernet is a key feature in many Industry 4.0 applications that connect to IoT sensors and cameras for computer vision and edge AI analytics,” said Dustin Seetoo, Premio’s product marketing director. “Security and surveillance applications benefit from a single, centralized rugged embedded computer – managing multiple devices through PoE, and creating a robust solution for real-time processing closer to IoT devices and sensors.”
With PoE support, the RCO-3000-CML presents more options for wired connectivity to critical IoT sensors and peripherals. With the addition of Intel® 10th Generation CPUs in a low 35W TDP, the RCO-3000-CML series can support powerful multi-core CPU options ranging from Intel Core i3, i5, i7, and even Xeon-W processors.
“By focusing on even greater processing power in a small form factor design, the RCO-3000-CML is an industrial computer that delivers x86 performance, I/O connectivity, and hardened reliability for the most intensive workloads at the rugged edge,” added Seetoo. “Our embedded engineers ensure a balance of key technologies in our products, enabling scalable computing options in the harshest environmental settings, as well as allowing our customers to quickly deploy their solution into the market.”
EDGEboost I/O modules easily integrate within all of Premio’s embedded systems through standard PCIe protocols on the computer motherboard. System integrators and OEMs can tap into RJ45/M12 PoE connectors or select a range of other add-on modules such as USB, LAN ports in 1GbE and 10 GbE, or M.2 B/M Keys for 5G, NVMe, and AI. The RCO-3000-CML offers rich I/O with 6x USB 3.2 Gen 2, 3x COM (RS-232/422/485), 2x GbE LAN, 1x full-size Mini-PCIe/mSATA, 1x M.2 E Key, and 1x M.2 B Key (for 4G/5G/AI/NVMe). Wireless connectivity through Wi-Fi and Bluetooth allows the RCO-3000-CML to pair with IoT devices and sensors within an IoT network, while the dual SIM socket design allows for multi-carrier 5G/4G/LTE connectivity in remote, mobile edge deployments.
The RCO-3000-CML also supports enhanced storage technology, providing a reliable solution to the crucial data generated in video analytics. The RCO-3000-CML supports up to 2x internal 2.5” SSD/HDD drives (1x internal, 1x via mSATA) and 1x external tool-less, hot-swappable drive that allows for simplified maintenance and capacity upgrades. Both internal and external storage drives are also supported with RAID technology to reduce downtime in the event of a failing drive and prevent data loss.
The RCO-3000-CML is built with Premio's industrial-grade design, allowing the system to operate in a fanless and cableless chassis for enhanced durability in the harshest environments. The system measures 192 x 227 x 60.3mm, making it extremely compact for space-constrained applications. Its ruggedized design allows the computer to operate in wide temperatures (-25oC – 70oC) and wide input voltages (9 - 48VDC) and has been tested and validated for shock and vibrations (MIL-STD-810G, 50G/5Grms). The RCO-3000-CML strikes a balance between power, size, and performance to deliver the necessary processing power without delays at the rugged edge.
