Intel Meteor Lake Embedded Box PC

Vecow’s latest embedded system supports wall mounting using brackets, but the company also provides optional VESA and/or DIN Rail mounts. Supported operating systems include Windows 11, Windows 10, and Linux. Three models are available namely the SPC-9000, SPC-9100, and SPC-9200. While the company does not provide that many details, it looks like the main difference is the cooling solution – hence the different height, weight, and temperature ranges of each model – with the SPC-9000 equipped with a heat spreader (supposedly flat), the SPC-9100 a heatsink, and the SPC-9200 a fansink (so not quite fanless…)

So far we have mostly covered COM Express modules based on Meteor Lake processors as well as ASRock industrial NUC motherboards and mini PCs, and the Vecow SPC-9000 is one of the first complete industrial embedded systems based on the 14th Gen Intel Core Ultra Meteor Lake SoCs. Availability and pricing were not discussed in the announcement. A few more details may be found on the product page.

Again no price

EN 50155 /50121 and the good temperature range make it very tempting.
