An Introduction to Grinding Machine

Grinding Machine is a machine tool used for grinding; a type of machine using an abrasive wheel as the cutting tool. The grinding machine consists of a bed with a fixture to guide and hold the work-piece, and a power-driven grinding wheel spinning at the required speed.
DFI’s Solution for Grinding Machine — EC800 Series
DFI’s first palm-sized fanless embedded system, the industrial grade EC800, supports a range of Intel® Atom™ processors, from the Intel® Atom™ N2800/N2600 processor for low power solution applications to the Intel® Atom™ D2550 processor for applications that require maximum performance. EC800 offers high speed interfaces for maximum storage. The CFast socket, which is easily accessible from the front panel, uses SATA interface that offers faster read/ write performance. For additional storage, a Mini PCIe slot is available for installing an mSATA module. CFast and mSATA are significan tly smaller than regular SATA drives and are ideal for space-limited applications. To ensure efficient communication, the system supports Wi-Fi and 3G/GPRS via optional modules. It is also equipped with a SIM slot and 2 antenna holes making the system a viable option for wireless applications. EC800 comes standard with 9~24V wide range power input voltage. It is capable of supporting up to 36V (via the optional battery pack) for a variety of industrial applications.
