Toronto, Canada & Birdsboro, PA ~ May 2017 – Sparton Corporation (NYSE:SPA) under the brand, a leader in the industrial rugged computer and peripherals market has launched a pair of wide temperature range Mini PCs. These new rugged fanless computers models LPC-815 & LPC-835 provide an extended operating temperature range and are designed for a variety of demanding environments and applications.

These wide temperature range computers are new additions to our recently launched LPC-800 series and add the ability to operate in temperature ranges of -25 to 70C (-13 to 158 F), beyond what is found in typical consumer operations.

The wide temperature Mini PCs are completely fanless and operate without noisy cooling fans which could draw in dirt and dust potentially causing catastrophic failures. SSD (Solid State Drives) with options up to 1TB in capacity are also utilized to meet extreme environmental conditions including high vibration, shock and humidity specifications.

The LPC-815 model is extremely small and can fit in the palm of your hand measuring just 5.9” (W) x 4.13” (D) x 1.9” (H) (150mm x 105mm x 49mm) in size. Weighing in at just 1.9 pounds (0.86kg) the LPC-815 is well equipped with abundant I/O ports and configurable options.

The LPC-835 model adds additional performance with Intel 5th Gen Core i5 or i7 mobile processors and functionality, such as RAID, with support for two drives including a single front removable drive bay and expanded I/O ports.

The LPC-815 & LPC-835 can operate on a wide range of 9-48V DC power input making it an ideal fit for mobile, marine, transportation, field and remote based applications. They also come equipped with DIO (Digital input/output) ports with isolation. The new feature gives the advantage of providing electrical isolation of digital signals.

“Our new wide temperature mini PCs expand our recently launched LPC-800 series with ability to operate in extremely demanding environments. Versatile and robust they represent some of the most rugged small form factor computers we have offered to date,” stated Louis Houde, Business Unit Director for the brand.

Wide temperature computers are an excellent choice for demanding applications within the Industrial, Commercial, Scientific Research, Military / Defense, Marine, Public Safety, Utility, Transportation, Mining and Telecommunications markets.

Systems are compatible with Microsoft Windows, Linux and can be custom configured to meet the exact needs of the OEM or end user. Systems come standard with 2 year warranty and extended warranty options are available. Basic configurations of the LPC-815 & LPC-835 Fanless Mini PCs start at $1,495.00 USD and $2,395.000 USD respectively.
