Minnesota-based Pentair, a global leader in protecting critical processes, people and the environment, has developed a modular standard COM (Computer On Module) carrier from its Schroff brand for type 6 COM express modules. The main areas of application for standard Schroff COM carriers are in industrial automation, kiosk applications, test and measurement as well as in the area of rail technology.
The COM modules are designed to reduce development costs and save time. The actual computer is on the standardized COM module. All I/O interfaces are provided on the Schroff carrier board. For new product development, this means standardized COM modules from different manufacturers can be used along with either the standard or a customized Schroff COM carrier from Pentair.
