With its new C12 compact industrial PC, noax Technologies (Charlotte, N.C.) is showcasing an industrial PC designed specifically for logistics and mobile applications. What makes it so special: the new noax IPC now features an integrated uninterruptible power supply: a worldwide, first available in the noax C12. The greatest advantage, compared to batteries, is that super condensers have long life cycles and are maintenance-free. The UPS bridges up to 30 seconds of voltage failure, thus offering protection against data loss and operation interruptions. The new C12 industrial computer is best suited for use in mobile applications, as its integrated UPS ensures that the IPC will be continuously ready for operations, even when the vehicle is starting up or forced shut-downs.
The on-board computer is, in many cases, an indispensable piece of equipment on forklift trucks and mobile applications. However, the start-up process for gas or diesel-engine forklift trucks often triggers a voltage drop. If the computer on the truck is already up and running, this can lead to the unit being abruptly shut down. Often, the result is a loss of essential information. The new noax C12 with integrated UPS solves this problem: the integrated uninterruptible power supply bridges brief power outages for a period of up to 30 seconds. As a result, information is not lost and it continues to be available to employees.
The new noax UPS is easy to operate thanks to the integrated ignition key function. This function enables operators to automatically start up the on-board terminal when they switch on the ignition, and likewise, to shut it down automatically by turning off the ignition – with a pre-programmable time delay, if desired. Additionally, the 'deep sleep' function prevents the vehicle battery from being completely drained. The UPS does not require batteries made of hazardous substances like lead or cadmium, which present significant disposal issues and need to be replaced after a relatively short life cycles. Wherever efficiency, speed and data security are important, the new C12 compact IPC with integrated UPS offers that crucial plus in reliability.
