Industrial Computers From Tangent For 24/7 Factories

Industrial Computers Built To Run 24/7

As the U.S. industrial sector continues to expand, factories are looking for new ways to beat the competition in terms of efficiency and productivity. This may mean that creating multiple shifts and transitioning your facility to operate around the clock is in your factory’s future. But even if your workers can operate in three separate shifts, their equipment cannot. Making sure that the equipment your workers use can withstand 24/7 use is crucial to maximizing your facility’s productivity and efficiency.

Industrial Computers Built For 24/7 Use

Industrial computers are computers custom-designed to operate in factories, oil rigs, and every other industrial facility currently in use. Unlike commercial grade computers, industrial computers are able to withstand the temperatures and environments of the industrial sector with ease. But not all industrial computers are built equal. Industrial computers are seldom designed to operate on a 24/7 schedule—unless they are designed by Tangent. Tangent designs all of their industrial computers to be able to withstand a 24/7 use cycle with ease. Here’s how:

All-In-One PC Housing

In order to maintain a 24/7 use cycle, industrial computers need to be designed accordingly. One way to accomplish this is design the industrial computer as an all-in-one PC. All-in-one PCs are industrial computers that are similar to tablets in that the entire PC is contained behind the screen. All-in-one PCs like the S Series from Tangent make full use of this technology in their design. The S Series, when equipped with a solid state drive, features no moving parts whatsoever. In addition to its touchscreen, this means that the S Series rarely requires maintenance, making it perfect for 24/7 use.

Smart factories can benefit from complex networks built by rugged mini pcs from Tangent

Industrial Computers For Complex System Networking

When making a new network for your facility, there are many things to consider. Should you invest in smart factory infrastructure entirely? How many networks should your factory have? How many switches and routers do you need? While these are some of the most pressing questions, the question of the actual computers that will comprise the network should not be overlooked. While traditional computers rely on switches to create a network across multiple computers, there are other options that can be more effective. Industrial computers from Tangent can create networks via switches or simply by being connected to one another, allowing for more choices in your network building process.

Industrial Computers Are Perfect For Complex Systems

Complex networks require advanced infrastructure, and industrial computers from Tangent are more than advanced enough to be the building blocks for your factory’s network. Tangent’s lineup of rugged computers are built for the factory setting. These rugged computers can withstand temperatures from -40°F to 185°F with ease, making them perfect for nearly any facility.

In addition to this wide operating temperature range, rugged computers from Tangent are specially designed for every industrial need, including the creation of complex networks. Every rugged computer from tangent has, at minimum, two Ethernet ports. This allows Tangent’s rugged computers to connect to two networks at once, allowing for the daisy chaining of rugged computers.

More Ethernet Ports: More Networks

While it is common to see the use of centralized networks in most facilities, the use of decentralized networks is not to be ignored. Decentralized networks differ from centralized networks in that instead of every computer being connected to one network, computers are networked to each other directly. This has distinct advantages in certain situations, namely that a large bandwidth use by one computer does not slow the whole network down.

One way to accomplish a decentralized network is with industrial computers from Tangent. Rugged computers like the Rugged Mini FX come standard with four separate Ethernet ports. With four Ethernet pots, this rugged computer can connect to four separate networks. This means that it can potentially connect to four other industrial computers, which are all in turn connected to three other computers, and so on. Or, the Rugged Mini FX can connect to three industrial computers and a separate, centralized network. The possibilities with multiple Ethernet ports are endless.

If four Ethernet ports are not enough for your complex system needs, then the Rugged Mini C from Tangent is the way to go. This industrial computer has a whopping six Ethernet ports. This nearly absurd amount of Ethernet ports allows the Rugged Mini C to potentially connect to six separate networks. With an optional solid state drive, this industrial computer can make the most out of its six Ethernet ports.

Complex Systems Don’t Have To Be A Complex Headache

With industrial computers from Tangent, creating complex systems doesn’t have to be a chore. Industrial computers can help you create complex networks that are ready to help your facility transition into a smart factory.
