The Cristo Redentor is an iconic monument overlooking Rio de Janeiro, and is recognized as a symbol of Brazil throughout the world. Opened in 1931, the attraction welcomes over two million visitors annually from all over the globe.
The visitor center at the Cristo Redentor required a compact robust PC to power interactive multimedia displays. The installation was planned to be outdoors, so the successful technology would have to be weatherproof and able to operate in a wide range of temperatures. The computer chosen would also need to power two high definition (1080P) displays simultaneously.
Lanner’s LEC-2280 series is the ideal device for the stated needs of robustness, dual HD display support, and ability to operate in high temperatures. Customers of the LEC-2280 can choose from a range of processors, and in this case the Intel® Core® i7 “Ivy Bridge” was selected as the most appropriate CPU for the demands of the application.With industrial components the LEC-2280 can operate continuously in temperatures of up to 55ºC, ensuring stability even in the tropical conditions of Rio de Janeiro. The whole installation is embedded in an IP-66-certified housing to keep it operational in all weather conditions.
The Cristo Redentor visitor center now offers a broader range of informational content to visitors, ensuring a higher quality of experience, at a reasonable cost and with a high level of reliability.
LEC-2280 fanless embedded computers use Intel® 3rd Generation Core® i3/i5/i7 processors, they are designed for wide deployment in application-specific environments. Also available is the high performance variant SKU-7B with i7-3612QE quad-core processors and the power efficient SKU-7A with the i7-3555LE CPU.
What is more, LEC-2281 is the successor to the LEC-2280. The fanless LEC-2281 comes with Intel®’s 4th generation Core™ i7/i5/i3 processors and it offers richer expansion and I/O options that include Intel® HD Graphics 4600, HDMI, VGA and DVI-D interface, dual 2.5″ HDD/SSD drive bays and one mSATA socket; expansion is made possible via the included PCI, PCI Express x16 and the full-sized mini-PCIe socket with SIM card reader. The LEC-2281‘s high-performance processors, scalable expansion capability and flexible I/O options make it the all-in-one, one-for-all solution for almost all IoT and industry 4.0 application scenarios.
