The compact PCs are the significantly smaller, more 'compact' variant of the 19" industrial PC systems, but are very similar to them in terms of features. They are ideally suited for use in industry due to the components used.
They are also equipped with either an industrial mainboard or a slot CPU board. This results in a wide range of individual configuration options.
Numerous slots offer space for various PCI or PCIe expansion cards. Modern high-performance GPU cards can also be accommodated in many compact PC models.
In combination with other industrial components, such as memory or power supply, they form the basis for automation and control solutions, e.g. in industrial machine vision.
