Make it Smaller

Time and again at customer visits, embeddedTS heard the same thing, "We love your single board computers, but make them smaller! They have to go inside this cabinet, and we need room for everything!" We listened. embeddedTS is proud to introduce the TS-7100-Z, our smallest single board computer in an optional DIN-mountable enclosure that measures 2.4" by 3.6" by 1.7", powered by the Arm® Cortex®-A7 based iMX6 UltraLite CPU. It ships with industry-standard interfaces, including Ethernet, USB, RS-232, RS-485, and CAN. For wireless connectivity, the TS-7100-Z comes with WiFi and Bluetooth module, as well as a NimbeLink/Digi cellular modem and mesh network socket.

With all of these features packed into a smaller footprint, not only will the TS-7100-Z fit in your cabinet, but it can also help to replace other peripherals and modules to free up even more space and get more done. Combining all of these components into one small DIN mounted unit, we provide the ability to promote hot swapping in the field, limiting costly technician time and troubleshooting.

Each component on the TS-7100-Z has been carefully chosen to ensure reliable operation in the field and a maximum product lifespan of 10+ years. The fanless design of the TS-7100-Z paired with the low-cost enclosure is able to withstand high vibration, debris, and a wide temperature range of -40 °C to 85 °C.

The TS-7100-Z took home the Embedded Computing Design's Best in Show Award at the embedded world trade fair in 2020.

New Kid on the Block

The TS-7100-Z comes with a robust RoHS compliant 32 position spring clamp connector. Terminal block screws are not necessary.

  • 2x Relays with NO, NC, and Common Contacts (2 A / 220 VAC)
  • 3x Digital Inputs (0-30 VDC)
  • 3x Digital Input and Output (sinks up to 700 mA)
  • 1x Digital Output (0-48 VDC from supplied power) or ...
    • ... 1x Analog Input (0-50 VDC)
  • 4x ADC Inputs (0-12 VDC or 4-20 mA; 0.1% reference) or ...
    • ... 4x Digital Input (Dry contact compatible)

The TS-7100-Z supports several DIO features that are found in industrial applications like HVAC and automation control, such as relays, 4-20 mA or 0-12 VDC analog inputs, dry contact switch compatible inputs, and outputs capable of sinking 700 mA. Furthermore, digital outputs have fast electronic circuit breakers for equipment protection.

Reliable Data Storage with TS-SILO and FRAM

The TS-SILO power reserve ensures that there will never be data loss or corruption when there are unexpected interruptions in power. TS-SILO provides up to 30 seconds of operation to allow graceful system shutdown, protecting data stored on the onboard eMMC. Additionally, the TS-7100-Z integrates Ferroelectric RAM (FRAM or FeRAM ) which combines non-volatile data storage with incredibly high read/write endurance for the ultimate in reliability for heavy data logging applications.
