  Overview

The VS-860 is a RISC Panel PC, an industrial embedded computer based on ARM Cortex-A8. It features an integrated 8" display panel with resistive Touch function. The great variety of interfaces like LAN/WLAN, CFast, USB, Bluetooth, serial interface plus more options makes it easy to connect various industrial devices to the VS-860.

Compact dimensions and Panel mount capability make the VS-860 to a space saving and flexible mounting industrial computer. It is feasible to be installed even in space limited environments.

The optional WLAN and Bluetooth functions provide opportunities for wireless communication. A miniPCIe slot provides options to extend that. For example the connected SIM slot allows to use GSM/3.5G modems.

Due to RISC based architecture the VS-860 has very small power consumption, so fanless heat dissipation is sufficient inside. Working in a wide temperature range from -10°C up to 65°C the VS-860 can be applied in under harsh industrial conditions. Therefore the VS-860 is downright designed for industrial automation.

The embedded computer runs full-featured Debian GNU/Linux on ARM operating system. This system is usually installed on the integrated NAND Flash memory, to operate without extra mass storage. External storage offered is a SD card to place in the card-reader, and an additional CFast card. The operating system may also start from the SD card. With Debian's repository database it is easy to install and update the free software on the VS-860.
The system also supports Windows CE 6, starting from SD.
