Logic Supply Launches CL200 Small Form IoT Edge Device

By Ken Briodagh April 04, 2018

In a recent release, Global computer hardware manufacturer Logic Supply has unveiled its CL200 Ultra Small Form Factor computer, designed to power the network's edge. Surrounded by an ultra-durable cast aluminum enclosure, and configurable with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 4G connectivity, the CL200 has been engineered to bring reliability to the Internet of Things.           

“IoT and Edge projects require flexibility, connectivity and dependability,” said Michael Kleiner, Director of Engineering, Logic Supply. “The CL200 is our smallest fanless system ever, and represents the nextgeneration of IoT computing by combining connection flexibility and efficient performance in an affordable, highly-reliable platform.”

Both models in the CL200 Series are powered by an efficient Intel Apollo Lake Celeron processor and measure a mere 83 x 116 x 34 mm. The base model CL200, running on Linux Ubuntu 16.04, features 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of onboard storage. The CL210 steps up to 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, and can be configured with Ubuntu or Windows 10 IoT. A built-in MicroSD card slot on both models enables additional removable storage.

I/O on the CL200 includes one mini DisplayPort capable of 1080p or 4K resolution, one Gigabit LAN port, and two USB 3.0. The CL210 features two mini DisplayPorts capable of dual 1080p or single 4K resolution, dual Gigabit LAN, two USB 3.0, and also adds a 3.5 mm audio jack. Both systems have an additional USB 2.0 port and RS-232 box header on the bottom, and are configurable with Wi-Fi/Bluetooth and Logic Supply's Extrovert 4G LTE capability.

The CL200 will make its debut at this year's Digital Signage Expo in Las Vegas, NV, which begins on March 28th. The system's compact footprint, versatile connectivity and optional Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) make it ideal for a range of digital signage and kiosk applications.

“We've been working with Logic Supply for the last few years on a range of projects that require highly reliable computer hardware,” said Kevin Romano, EVP and founder, Christie Experiential Network. “In our industry, reliability is paramount. Every moment of downtime potentially represents significant revenue loss. Employing Logic Supply hardware lets us focus exclusively on creating immersive and engaging OOH solutions for our clients and their content.”

In addition to IoT and digital media applications, the CL200 is well suited for data acquisition, automation and network gateway installations that require a reliable, versatile, ultra small form factor device. The CL200 will be available in Spring 2018, but Logic Supply is currently engaging with customers interested in the CL200 on project requirements and timelines.
