Online PR News – 03-August-2021 – City of Industry, California – Axiomtek, a leading designer and manufacturer of innovative and reliable high performance industrial computer products, is pleased to introduce the ICO300-83M, its ATEX, Class I Division 2 (CID2) certified DIN-rail fanless embedded system. Designed for hazardous environments where ignitable concentrations of flammable gases or liquids might exist, the ICO300-83M is powered by the Intel Atom® x5-E3930 processor with 8GB DDR3L-1866 RAM. The anti-explosive system is specially designed for operations within the oil and gas industry, chemical industry, steel industry, distilling industry, and more.

The reliable, IP40-rated DIN-rail fanless box PC is able to withstand harsh industrial environments, supporting a wide temperature range of -40°C to 85°C, 9 to 36 VDC wide voltage input with OVP, UVP, OCP as well as RPP, and up to 3G vibration endurance. Among its key features, the ICO offers very low power consumption of approximately 5W through the use of Axiomtek’s LFM BIOS. Combining flexible configuration with a design permitting easy expansion, the cost-effective ICO300-83M supports an array of functional I/O ports. These include six isolated RS-232/422/485 serial ports, one HDMI port, two USB 3.0 ports, three isolated Gigabit Ethernet ports, one 8-in/8-out DIO port, and five antenna openings for WLAN and WWAN usage. The IIoT gateway system comes with one mSATA stored in a PCI Express Mini Card slot, an internal 2.5” SATA drive, and an optional eMMC on board for additional storage.

The ICO300-83M is compatible with Windows®10, IoT and Linux. It supports Axiomtek’s AXView software to fulfill the requirement of remote monitoring and it offers Trusted Platform Module 2.0 (TPM 2.0) to ensure critical information security. In addition, a cold boot at -40°C is available to help eliminate issues affecting the operational reliability of the system.

“Heavy industries are some of the most dangerous and challenging work environments. In addition to operation in broad temperature ranges, the ICO300-83M has obtained the ATEX, CID2 certifications to mitigate safety risks in hazardous environments such as oil, gas, and chemical manufacturing,” said Mark Lu, the product manager of the Embedded System Division at Axiomtek. “This explosion-proof DIN-rail gateway system supports one M.2 Key B 3052 and one full-size PCI Express Mini Card slot for LTE or Wi-Fi modules to ensure superior connectivity for real-time communications. It is also equipped with a half-size PCI Express Mini Card slot and two SIM slots to maximize efficiency.”

Axiomtek’s ICO300-83M will be available for purchase in September 2021. For more product information or customization services, please visit our website at or contact us by email at
