Industrial box computers are typically used in machine vision applications to provide robust and reliable computing performance. These computers are designed to operate in harsh environments and often have features such as rugged enclosures, improved thermal management and expansion options for connecting various peripherals.

There are several factors to consider when selecting an industrial box computer for machine vision:

Processing power: Machine vision algorithms can be computationally intensive. It is therefore important to choose a box computer with sufficient processing power. The Darveen MIC-7300 industrial box computer can be equipped with an Intel LGA 1151 6/7/8/9 CPU for more demanding tasks.

GPU capabilities: Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) can significantly speed up machine vision tasks, especially those involving deep learning and image processing.

Expansion slots: Check for available expansion slots such as PCIe or mini-PCIe to accommodate additional hardware components such as frame grabbers, camera interfaces or specialised vision cards. The Darveen MIC-7300 industrial box computer offers expansion slot modules to suit different requirements, including 1x full mini-PCIe slot, 1x optional TPM2.0 module and 1x SIM card slot for seamless 4G/5G connectivity.

Memory and storage: Choose a box computer with enough memory and storage capacity to meet the demands of your machine vision applications. The Darveen MIC-7300 industrial box computer is equipped with 2x DDR4 2133 MHz SO-DIMM slots, allowing users to meet their requirements by expanding the memory capacity up to 32GB.

Connectivity: Consider the connectivity options provided by the box computer, such as USB, Ethernet, serial ports, and general-purpose input/output (GPIO) interfaces. These connections are critical for interfacing with cameras, sensors, actuators and other external devices. The Darveen MIC-7300 industrial box computer supports an optimised set of connectivity options, including 4x USB 2.0 and 4x USB 3.0 ports for fast data transfer, 32x GPIO pins for versatile input/output control, 6x COM ports for seamless serial communication, 2x LAN ports for reliable network connectivity, 2x DP and 1x VGA ports for various display options, and 2x CAN2.0B interfaces for efficient industrial communication.

Operating system compatibility: Ensure that the box computer supports the operating system (e.g. Windows or Linux) and machine vision libraries/frameworks (e.g. OpenCV) required for your application. The Darveen MIC-7300 industrial box computer is compatible with Windows 7, 8 and 10 as well as Ubuntu.

Environmental conditions: Industrial environments can be harsh, with conditions such as temperature fluctuations, humidity, dust and vibration. Choose a box computer with a robust case and sufficient protection against these elements. The Darveen MIC-7300 Industrial Box Computer is a state-of-the-art fanless computer that ensures efficient heat dissipation. Its robust construction, made from high quality all-aluminium material, increases its durability and resistance to pressure and shock. With an operating temperature range of -10 to 50°C, it provides excellent performance even in demanding environments.
