OnLogic unveils CL250 ultra small industrial edge computer
16 May 2022
OnLogic has introduced the CL250 ultra small fanless edge computer. Built to power industrial IoT and edge computing applications in challenging environments, the new palm-sized device is among the company's smallest fanless computers, and joins the company's popular CL200 Series of industrial computers.
The CL250 is suitable as an industrial gateway, SCADA device, automation controller or in any application that requires a compact computer built for reliability. Multiple mounting options, and industrial grade components and features, mean that it can be installed nearly anywhere.
"The CL200 Series of computers have been among our most popular devices over the last few years thanks to their compelling combination of small size, performance and connectivity," says Mike Walsh, OnLogic Product Manager for the company's Industrial Line. "With the CL250, we've moved to a more powerful Intel processor and doubled the available memory, while still managing to price it lower than its predecessors."
The CL250 is powered by an efficient Intel® Apollo Lake Pentium J3455 processor and features 8 GB of dual channel memory. The system is passively cooled, utilising its extruded aluminum enclosure to enable natural convection from internal components to the surrounding air. The completely ventless system has no moving parts, allowing it to operate reliably even in contaminant-prone factories, warehouses and other industrial environments. The CL250 has an operating temperature range of 0°C to 40°C.
Measuring 115.5 x 82 x 34mm, the CL250 manages to provide a wide assortment of industry-focused I/O, including two USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports, two 1GbE LAN ports, and two mini DisplayPorts. The bottom of the system features one 9-pin RS-232 box header port and one USB 2.0 port. The top has four antenna holes for optional Wi-Fi via the system’s two mPCIe slots (one full-height, one half-height). For ease of installation, the system can be mounted via VESA, Wall Mounting or DIN rail.
The CL250 can be configured with Windows 10 IoT or Ubuntu. The new system is also one of the first OnLogic systems to be certified for use with Red Hat Enterprise Linux. A built-in MicroSD card slot enables additional removable storage while an onboard mSATA can accommodate up to a 1 TB SSD. The system leverages Intel Platform Trust Technology (PTT), a firmware implementation of TPM that meets TPM 2.0 standards, to help protect data stored on the system.
