The TEP series features a robust all-metal design. The display is mounted into the anodized aluminium frame with IP65 protection, which allows water washing. It offers models with 5, 7, 10.1 or 15.6 "display with a brightness of 300 to 400cd / m2 and and multi-touch projected capacitive touch panel.
Most models also provide independent output for an external monitor. The options are summarized in the table No.1
Processors and Operating System
For NXP i.MX6UL and i.MX7D, we recommend using a Yocto Linux distribution, which is optimized for less powerful embedded devices. The models with i.MX6S, U, and Q processors also allow running Android. Linux and Android images are freely available on the TechNexion FTP server.
The Intel Atom X5-E8000 and Pentium N3710 models support OS Linux and Windows.
Storage and RAM
Models based on NXP processors allow you to use an internal eMMC as storage, avoiding problems with non-compatible micro SD cards. Standard eMMC capacity is 4GB.Bigger capacity eMMC is available upon request. Models based on Intel processors allow using M.2 2242/2280 SSD. Models with NXP processors have RAM soldered on the base board. Bigger RAM capacity is available upon request. Intel processors based models are shipped with 2GB SODIMM DDR3L RAM. The available eMMC and RAM capacities are summarized in the table No.2
TEP0500 and TEP0700 models are price optimized. They don‘t use extension module, RS232, CAN and GPIO are not galvanic isolated. TEP1010 and TEP1560 use extension module, galvanic isolated or non-isolated interfaces module is available. Available interfaces are specified in the table No.3
TEP0500 and TEP0700 models with i.MX6UL processor don’t contain M.2 or mPCIe slot. Wireless communication can be complemented by a suitable external module plugged into USB port, EW-7811Un for example.
Remaining models include M.2 and / or mPCIe slots and slots for SIM cards, making it easy to add wireless connectivity as needed. Of course, there are pre-cut openings for the external antenna connector on the enclosure. The table No.4 will provide you with a summary of the slots used.
