August 18, 2020 by Ben Stepanian

The new Versa view 6300 compact PC series will save space while packing a punch.

The Versaview Box PC and Thin Client can operate in harsh environments and can be easily integrated into a system while providing exceptional display capabilities. An intuitive user interface paired with the computers' affordability will replace obsolete control units in today's industrial applications. 


The Atom Class Specs

The VersaView 6300B Box PC and 6300T Box Thin client Intel Atom class computers run on a 64 bit Microsoft Windows 10 internal operating system and feature an Intel Atom x7-3950 1.6 GHz (2.0 GHz Burst), 4 cores/4 threads, 2 MB L2 cache) processor.

The computers come in either 4 GB or 8 GB RAM options and have up to 256 GB of storage. The computers feature two ethernet and two USB ports along with one display port capable of 4K display video output with an Intel HD Graphics 505 integrated with x7-3950, 500/650MHz video controller.

The computers require a 24V power supply and can operate in a temperature range of 0 degrees Celsius to 50 degrees celsius while working in humidity as high as 80%. The computers meet CE (EN 61326-1, EN 61010-1, EN 61010-2-201), cULus LISTED (UL61010) standards and have heat sinks that don't require a cooling fan all while being contained in an aluminum alloy case.

The VersaView 6300B Box PC Intel Core i Class also runs on a 64 bit Microsoft Windows 10 operating system. However, they use a different processor. This class of computers can have two separate processors. The first processor is the fanless and book mounted model with an Intel platform processor Intel Core seventh-generation 35/45W Chipset Intel HM175 PCH (Platform Controller Hub) Intel Core i3-7100E, 2.90 GHz, 3MB smart cache, two cores/4 threads Intel Core i7-7820EQ, 3.00 GHz (3.70 GHz Turbo), 8MB smart cache, 4 cores/8 threads, soldered-on board.

The second one is the wall-mounted model with an Intel Core i seventh-generation 65W Intel Core i3-7101E, 3.90 GHz, 3MB smart cache, 2 cores/4 threads, TDP 54W, socket FCLGA1151 Intel Core i7-7700, 3.60 GHz (4.20 GHz Turbo), 8MB smart cache, 4 cores/8 threads, TDP 65W, socket FCLGA1151.

The book mounted version has an Intel HD Graphics 630 integrated into Intel Core microprocessor 950 MHz/1 GHz, Video RAM (shared) Dynamic Video Memory Technology for a video controller. The wall-mounted version has an Intel HD 630 Graphics integrated into Intel Celeron microprocessor Intel Core i3 e i5 350 MHz/1.10 GHz video controller.


The Intel Core i Class Specs

The Intel core i class has an astounding 32 GB of Ram and up to 1 TB of storage. Each model has 4 ethernet ports and 2 USB 2.0 type A ports while the book mount model has up to 3 USB 3.0 type A ports and the wall-mounted model has up to 4 USB 3.0 type A ports.

Operating temperatures of both these models range from 0 degrees Celsius to 50 degrees celsius with a Core i3 Processor and up to 45 degrees celsius with a core i7 processor. These models also can be operational in up to 80% humidity. The book mounted version of the computer meets CE (EN 55022, EN 61000-3-2/3, EN 55024, EN 60950-1) cULus LISTED (UL61010) standards while the wall-mounted version meets CE (EN 55022, EN 61000-3-2/3, EN 55024, EN 60950-1) cULus LISTED (UL61010) pending standards.
