IEI (ICP Electronics Inc), distributed in Australia by ICP Electronics Australia has announced the release of the AFL-057A, a 5.7" Power over Ethernet (PoE) All-in-One Panel PC which integrates the ultra low power Intel Atom Z510/Z530 processor (up to 1.6GHz), an LCD touch panel, and PoE function into a compact, fanless form factor which is easily installed for use in home automation, building control and security applications.
The generously proportioned 5.7" LCD panel is an LED backlit resistive touch screen, which is 4 wire resistive touch capable. The fanless AFL-057A also features 1x compact flash slot, IP64 front panel protection from dust and spills, low power consumption and a wide operating temperature of -20ºC to 60ºC.
The AFL-057A is IEEE 802.3af compliant which eliminates the need for AC outlets. The IEEE 802.3af PoE standard ensures that 12.95W of DC power is supplied to each connected device. PoE Technology allows the system to safely transfer power and data to remote devices via the one cable (standard category 5e) within an Ethernet network.
The high graphic performance of the Intel® Z510P/Z530P 1.6GHz processor supports full hardware decoding for H.264, MPEG2, VC1, and WMV9. This eliminates the need for software decoding, therefore avoiding the risk of overloading the processor. Multitasking is optimized with amazingly low CPU resource utilization, and the Intel Atom Z530P processor allows for super-smooth video playback.
