IEI (ICP Electronics Inc), distributed in Australia by ICP Electronics Australia has announced the release of the AFL-057A 5.7" Power over Ethernet (PoE) All-in-One Panel PC.
The 5.7" All-in-One Panel PC integrates the ultra low power 1.6GHz Intel® Atom Z510/Z530 processor with a 5.7" LED backlit LCD panel and PoE function. As it has no fixed wiring, this compact, fanless LCD PC can be installed with minimal hassle and disruption in any location where an RJ-45 Ethernet jack is present including industrial, retail and home environments.
In the event of a power failure when connected to the optional IPS-2042TX Lite-managed PoE Ethernet Switch, the switch will automatically send an alarm. The PoE switch will then either reboot or shut down the device depending on the user settings. Users of the PoE can also schedule a time to power-on the attached devices with the power scheduling settings.
The high graphic performance supports full high definition hardware decoding of H.264, MPEG2, VC1, and WMV9, eliminating the need for software decoding avoiding processor overload. Performance is further optimised due to its amazingly low CPU power requirements.
