OnRISC Baltos iR 5221 is a fanless industrial embedded PC in compact dimensions, designed 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, wide temperature range -20°C to 65°C and flexible power supply (12-50V DC) make it an ideal system for industrial automation. The system allows extension with GPS and GSM/3G/4G communication, so installation on mobile bases is possible. WLAN is available as usual, two locations for antenna sockets are provided. Models with further extended temperature range are available, allowing for remote installations.
The great variety of interfaces like LAN, CAN Bus, serial ports, USB, I²C, Digital I/O plus more options makes it easy to connect various industrial devices and field buses to the Baltos.
The embedded computer runs Linux on ARM operating system Kernel 3.18. This system is installable on the internal NAND Flash memory, or on an SD card in the front side slot. For boot from NAND Flash a system configuration with buildroot is supported. With Debian's repository database it is easy to install and update the free software on the Baltos. VS provides information for configuration and sample installations of Linux for Baltos.
