Cincoze Industrial Panel PC: Accelerating the Production Efficiency of Animal Feed Manufacturing
According to the international market analysis and consulting group IMARC Research, rapid population growth has led to a continuous increase in the demand for animal products. The global animal feed market is projected to reach US$606.3 billion by 2028, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.3% from 2023 to 2028. In response to the rapid growth in purchasing power and the demand for accelerated production efficiency, automation in animal feed production is becoming increasingly prevalent.
SIPABA, a distinguished customer of Logicbus, Cincoze's distributor in Mexico, is a renowned agricultural technology automation equipment manufacturer in Mexico and a market leader with over 15 years of experience in agricultural technology development. SIPABA provides agricultural industry solutions, primarily serving customers in feed mills. Through automatic control systems and information technology, SIPABA develops solutions for customers, achieving process standardization and maximizing production to improve product quality and reduce production costs.
SIPABA has integrated the Cincoze industrial panel PC (CV-115/P1101) into their SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) system, serving as the HMI (human-machine interface) connecting to various sensors to view, analyze, and control the production status.
Stable Operation in Harsh Environments
Animal feed production environments are often filled with dust and liquids. The industrial panel PC needs to have IP65 protection to prevent damage from dust and liquid entering the system.
Due to the multitude of equipment in the factory, different machines can easily cause voltage and current interference. Multiple protection such as overvoltage, overcurrent, ESD, and surge protection are crucial. Additionally, given the high temperature in the enclosed control cabinet, a wide temperature range is necessary.
Connect with Multiple Sensors
The SCADA system needs to connect with various devices and sensors on site, such as PLCs, load cells, QR code scanners, and more. Sufficient I/O are required for the connectivity.
Easy Installation and Maintenance
This industrial panel PC needs to be embedded in the control cabinet, so its design must make it straightforward to install and integrate, while still allowing for easy maintenance access.
Rugged with Industrial-grade Protections
As an industrial panel PC installed in a factory, ruggedness is particularly important. The CV-115/P1101 panel features an aluminum die-casting front frame and a scratch-resistant with a 7H hardness (P-CAP model). The front panel is IP65 waterproof and dustproof and has a fanless design to prevent external dust and liquid entry. It also provides multiple protection mechanisms such as wide voltage (9-48V); overvoltage, overcurrent, ESD, and surge protection; and a wide temperature (0°~65°C) to ensure long-term stable operation in harsh environments.
Rich I/O to Meet Site Requirements
The CV-115/P1101 is a slim, fanless industrial panel PC equipped with an Intel® Atom® or Pentium® processor. It has rich I/O interfaces, including 2x 1GbE LAN, 4x USB 3.2, 4x COM and 8x isolated digital I/O (4in/4out) for the multiple sensor connections needed for the SCADA system, enabling quick and efficient collection of system equipment data and displaying it for operators to react or control immediately. It also supports two full-size Mini-PCIe slots and one SIM slot for various wireless communications or other expansion I/O connections.
CDS Patented Design for Easy Maintenance
In automated production lines, prolonged downtime is not acceptable because of the heavy losses it incurs. Convenient maintenance and ease of upgrades become essential. The Cincoze industrial panel PC (CV-115/P1101) exclusive CDS patented modular design (patent number: M482908) that is fully plug-and-play, without the need to adjust BIOS settings or cable connections. In an emergency, the monitor or computer can be replaced quickly to resume production line operation, shortening downtime. It is also very convenient when upgrading computer performance in the future, making it the best choice for SCADA systems.
Multiple Installation Methods
Cincoze industrial panel PC (CV-115/P1101) supports a variety of installation methods, including panel mount, VESA mount, DIN rail mount, and wall-mounted mount, catering to the installation needs of different environments.
In addition to the above-mentioned CV-115/P1101 panel PC, there is also a higher-performance model CV-115/P1201 available. The CV-115/P1201 uses the latest Intel® Elkhart Lake platform and supports up to 32GB DDR4 memory, significantly boosting computing performance. To provide products that meet the highest standards and industrial-grade protection, both CV-115 and P1201 have obtained US UL safety certification.
