Industrial computers need to be reliable, as they often are used for mission critical applications and not placed in an office environment. The Logic Controls LC8000 provides unparalleled reliability by being a fanless unit. It is an ideal computer for use in harsh environments with high levels of dust or oil or when fan noise is not desirable. For enhanced reliability, all of the computer components and connectors reside on one PC board. The LC8000s single board computer limits the number of internal cables, a common source of loose connections and failures. A true no-moving-part operation is provided when compact flash is used for mass storage or boot-from-network configurations are employed.
