Powerful and Multitalented

Designed around the NXP i.MX 6UL ARM CPU and our blend of FPGA cores, the TS-7120 single board computer is sure to be a reliable solution for practically any application (industrial controller, automotive, entertainment, IoT, asset tracking, etc.). It’s preloaded with software and example code you need to get your project to market in record time. Customization options are also available to fine tune specs to fit your application, making it easy and cost effective to deploy in the field.

Each component on the TS-7120 has been carefully chosen to ensure reliable operation in the field and minimum product lifespan for 10+ years. The fanless design of the TS-7120, paired with the low-cost enclosure, is able to withstand high vibration environments, debris, and a wide temperature range of -40 °C to 85 °C.

The optional display is perfect for implementing a dynamic HMI, or displaying alarms and other user feedback. There is also a dedicated flash chip for storing your custom splash screen image for the LCD to display on startup.

Digital Ins and Outs

The rugged screw terminals provide a secure interface for communication and control of sensors, actuators, and other external equipment. The TS-7120 supports several DIO features that are found in industrial applications like HVAC and automation control; such as relays, 4-20 mA or 0-10 VDC analog inputs, and outputs capable of sinking 500 mA. Furthermore, digital outputs have fast electronic circuit breakers for equipment protection.

  • 6x Relays (2 Amps / 220 VAC)
    • 4x Relays SPDT with NO, NC, and Common contacts
    • 2x Relays SPST with NO and Common contacts
  • 1x CAN Port
  • DIO
  • 3x RS-232 Ports
  • 2x RS-485 Port
  • 2x ADC (0 - 12 VDC)
  • 1x DAC (0 - 30 VDC)
  • 1x Nine-Axis (Gyro + Accelerometer + Compass) MEMS MotionTracking Device
  • 1x GPS
  • 1x I2C

Industry Standard Ports

Standard connectors are also plentiful on the TS-7120. External and internal USB ports provide ample opportunities for expanding the featureset even further. The dual Ethernet ports not only offer a solution for isolating networks / firewalls and doubling bandwidth, they can also power the board and other devices via Power Over Ethernet (PoE) when connected to Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE). Finally, a DB-9 port on the TS-7120 makes it easy to attach RS-232 devices.

Wireless Communications

With technologies like NimbeLink, Digi, XBee, WiFi, Cellular (HSPA/GSM), and Bluetooth, the TS-7120 has your wireless needs covered. Get your data transferred easily between other computers, servers, gateways, nodes, or sensors across mesh, personal, local, or wide area networks.

HART-enabled

The TS-7120 supports the global standard for exchanging data across analog signals between smart devices and control or monitoring systems using the HART communication protocol. This feature makes the TS-7120 a great fit for automation, plant process control, asset management, safety, or other systems using any control platform.

OBD-II Automotive Diagnostics

For the automotive industry, we’ve included ODB-II on the TS-7120’s RJ-45 connector for running diagnostics and monitoring the status of the various vehicle subsystems. This lends nicely to the automotive service industry for real time data monitoring, logging, and tracking.

DMX Controller

Get ready to light up the stage with the TS-7120. DMX, or digital multiplex, is the standard for digital communication networks commonly used to control stage lighting and effects. The TS-7120 implements the DMX512 standard that sits on top of RS-485 physical layer and is brought out on the dedicated RJ-45 port.

Reliable Data Storage with TS-SILO and FRAM

The TS-SILO power reserve ensures that there will never be data loss or corruption when there is unexpected interruptions in power. TS-SILO provides up to 30 seconds of reserve power to allow graceful system shutdown, protecting data stored on the on board eMMC. Additionally the TS-7120 integrates Ferroelectric RAM (FRAM or FeRAM ) which combines non-volatile data storage with incredibly high read/write endurance for the ultimate in reliability for heavy data logging applications.
