The Rhino is a series of Industrial network appliance commonly called embedded computer which is designed for flexible deployment in any applications. It comes with robust fan-less design making Rhino series embedded computers an ideal solution for video applications, POS systems, kiosks and embedded gaming computers. These embedded computers require no monitor, no keyboard, no mouse, as all viewing and administration can be accomplished remotely. Each Rhino unit includes video interfaces, COM port, LAN and USB 2.0 ports for administration plus software installation and upgrade expansion kit. The Rhino fan-less ETX module design is built with powerful processor with low power consumption to minimize cooling requirements. This is a significant design to improve the stability and working status of a completely fan-less embedded computer like Rhino.

Ethernet Direct offers both hardware and software platform that simplifies installation to meet growing demands in the industrial market. The are five Rhino models available to cater the different application requirement – Rhino 100, Rhino 120, Rhino 150, Rhino 200 and Rhino 220. The difference lies on the memory capacity, I/O interfaces, expansion slot and optional accessories.

The Rhino-220IL is the most popular unit in the product series. It is equipped with an Intel Pentium M 600 MHz/Celeron M 1.0 GHz embedded automation computer which supports a pre-configured Windows XP embedded operating system. IntraVUE Lite network management software is optional software to add value to the device. The combo Rhino hardware and IntraVUE Lite software simplifies installation designed for Control networks. The unit comes with dual Ethernet connections providing the scanning of a control network to be fully isolated from access on a second management network. The stand alone unit is also ideal for remote isolated I/O networks or OEM systems where there may not be a computer available to run IntraVUE software. Rhino series fan-less embedded automation computers make it truly reliable for various applications.
