  Overview

OnRISC Baltos iR 3220 is a fanless industrial embedded PC in compact dimensions, suitable for DIN Rail mounting. It is based on an ARM Cortex-A8 with NEON SIMD Coprocessor, up to 1GHz CPU clock speed. Low power consumption (3W typical), extended temperature range (−20°C to 65°C), wide power supply (12 — 50V DC) and impressive MTBF (10.5 Years at 45°C) make it an ideal system for industrial automation.

Easy-to-use starter kits

Baltos embedded systems run several Linux flavored distributions as operating system on an ARM core. Two prepackaged bootable SD cards are provided: Debian GNU/Linux and an upstream OpenWrt image, the latter including an install-option to the internal Flash memory. A VPN router firmware specialized in easy-to-use VPN networking is also available (VPNRouter).

Booting options and BSPs

Baltos iR 3220 can be booted from either NAND flash or SD card. The NAND flash is a robust boot medium capable of withstanding power cuts and vibrations. SD cards have the advantage of providing arbitrary large storage amounts. Buildroot, Yocto and OpenWrt BSPs provide a small footprint and would fit well into NAND storage, whereas Debian is most usable on the SD card.

Rich connectivity

The system allows extension with broadband GSM/3G/4G-Modems for installation on mobile internet bases. WLAN802.11b/g/n is available as a common option; three locations for SMA-antenna sockets are provided. The great variety of interfaces like LAN, USB, RS232/422/485 serial ports, I²C, and Digital I/O enable Baltos iR 3220 to act like a powerful gateway between networks and various industrial devices and field busses. Baltos series are fully ESD and surge protected compliant with IEC 61000-4-2 (8KV air and 4KV contact).

Secure Remote Access

For Baltos series there is a software option using the viaVPN Cloud system (www.viaVPN.com) to be remotely accessed and monitored over Internet. viaVPN provides secure and strongly encrypted access, without any reconfiguration of existing firewalls. If customers firmware/application is accessible via Ethernet or WLAN — for example via a web interface or by a Telnet/SSH connection — then viaVPN extends the access over Internet, protected by a VPN tunnel.
