Today’s factory environment …..
Developments within a multitude of industries have created demand for newer automation technologies that are driving, what we knew as ‘traditional factories’ – into factories that are increasingly dependent on technology to drive and control their internal processes. The increasing need for machine vision and predictive maintenance solutions – and the new era of Industry 4.0 IPC Solutions, making our factories ‘smarter,’ only serves to drive the advancement of advanced robotics, Artificial Intelligence Solutions and data acquisition within today’s factory environment.
As a result of the above, factories are continually increasing their productivity; improving their production yields, lowering their attrition (improving overall efficiencies), improving product quality and lowering production costs in today’s manufacturing industries.
In today’s modern manufacturing environment many applications such as machine vision and robotics, require high levels of computing performance, security, efficient data transfer rates and wide ranging and flexible I/O. Conversely, factory automation solutions require low-power consumption, reliability and cost-effectiveness.
With a wide range of industrial-grade Industrial IPC solutions, BVM ensure the provision of long life time availabilities of products (with subsequent continuation programs after EOL), capable of working both in ambient and wide temperature ranges in harsh environment conditions. As you develop your business to take advantage of the technological advances being made within automated manufacturing, BVM are here to advise and help you along the way if and when you need us.

Human Machine Interface (HMI) for building heating and ventilation control systems (HVAC).
Industrial and Embedded System PCs
Where embedded systems are concerned, the latest Intel and AMD CPU’s are ideal processors for factory automated applications such as machine vision systems. They come with high image processing capability (for precise image capturing via high resolution camera’s) and multiple expansion slots for graphics or capture cards. Supporting a range of environments with active-cooling and fanless models, a good cross selection of application requirements can be met. Typically for machine vision applications, important features such PoE ports and high-speed USB 3.0 for cameras serve applications well. As with our motherboard solutions, power inputs in the extended voltage range of 9-36V are supported.
