By Nick Flaherty at

Acnodes in the US has launched a series of expandable embedded box PCs with 7th/6th Gen Intel Xeon & Core i processor. 

Both the box PCs include a 4th generation PCI/PCIe expansion slot and 110-230V AC power input with wide range of working temperature from -20~55°C.

The FES7470 provides different Core i7 processors to choose from. There are Kabylake options on Core i7-7700T or Core i7-7500T and these are only compatible with Windows 10. However, if users want to stay with Windows 7, there are Skylake options with the Core i7-6700TE and Core i7-6500TE. The chassis porvies 3-slot PCI, 1-slot PCIe x16 Expansion, 5 USB3.0, 4 COM, and swappable HDD box, 250W AC power supply voltage.

The FES7471 offers higher performance Intel Xeon E3 processor in a chassis with 1-slot PCIe x1, 2-slot PCIe x4, 1-slot PCIe x16 Expansion, 5 USB 3.0, 4 COM, swappable HDD box and 250W AC power supply voltage. The two SATA 3.0 (600 MB/sec) slots also support RAID 0/1.

The two chassis weigh 11.48lbs (5kg) with dimension of 7.34 x 9.31 x 9.54" with tests reports for MIL-STD-810G military standard on vibration shock. These two models also support power input of 110-230V AC with 4PCI/PCIe expansion slot. Moreover, FES7470 and FES7471 also feature in 4COM, 2GbE, 5 USB 3.0.
