Introducing the CONTEC BX-825 Series
Embedded IoT Gateway PC Designed for Edge Computing

CONTEC’s new BX-825 Series Embedded IoT Gateway PC features an Intel Atom quad-core processor inside a sleek fanless and slitless casing, ideal for embedded industrial applications.

The BX-825 is equipped with three Gigabit LAN ports, making it the optimal device for IoT gateway applications that alternate connections between different network layers, such as communication between field busses and controllers within a factory and higher-order information system networks.

In IoT systems that use cloud services, security countermeasures are required on Internet-connected devices for embedded PCs. BX-825 models pre-installed with Windows 10 IoT are standard-equipped with McAfee® Security for Contec (corresponding to McAfee® Application Control), which is whitelist security countermeasure software. This prevents the execution of malicious programs and protects the embedded PC from zero-day malware attacks. Furthermore, the BX-825 is a certified device that has passed the connection test with Microsoft Azure IoT Hub and has been confirmed to work with the Azure IoT Edge SDK. This greatly reduces the time needed to verify operations, which is required when constructing a system that uses Azure IoT.

Main Features:

Secure IoT device for edge computing

The BX-825 is pre-installed with a 64-bit version of Windows 10 IoT Enterprise that supports four languages (English, Japanese, Chinese, and Korean) and also includes McAfee whitelist antivirus software. The BX-825 is equipped with everything required for an Internet-connected device. (BX-825D-DC761824)

Three Gigabit LAN ports for alternating connections between different network layers

The BX-825 is equipped with three Gigabit LAN ports. This makes it the optimal device for IoT gateway applications that alternate connections between different network layers such as between field busses and controllers within a factory and higher-order information system networks.

Supports worldwide safety standards

The BX-825 complies with worldwide safety standards: CE, CB, UL, CCC, BSMI, and KC. Consolidating all embedded PCs for devices for export to the BX-825 leads to major reductions in development and operation costs.

Reductions in running costs and energy usage

The BX-825 uses the E3845 low power consumption Intel® Atom™ processor platform in order to achieve low power consumption while still providing sufficient performance.

Supports a wide range of temperatures with operations guaranteed from 0 to 55°C

The BX-825 is capable of stable operations in environments with a wide range of temperatures from 0 to 55°C.

Slitless and fanless design that reduces maintenance and inspection work

The BX-825 has no need for heat dissipation slits or fans, uses an SSD for storage, and has a completely spindleless design. This feature prevents dust and foreign materials from entering the system and greatly reduces the maintenance and inspection burden by reducing as much as possible the use of components that deteriorate with age.
