faytech is on of the best industrial motherboard manufacturers in the USA
What is a motherboard? A motherboard can be defined as a central circuit board creating a complex electronic system from within a computer for example. A motherboard is vitally important as it provides the electrical links by which the other components of the system talk to each other and also contains the central processing unit, most commonly called CPU and other subsystems such as real time clock for example, and some other secondary interfaces. They are produced in different sizes and shapes which can be specific to each computer maker. Actually, most computer motherboards are now using a standard form since 2007.
Motherboards are most of the time air cooled with heat sinks often installed on larger chips. Most motherboards also have connectors for additional case fans just in case. More recent motherboards now have integrated ambient sensors to detect motherboard and CPU temperatures in order to regulate the fan speed and lower the temperature faster and better. This being mainly due to the appearance of thermal management systems that can now cool down the motherboard and reduce the noise more efficiently for better performances. Laptops would usually use a much different kind of motherboard. They usually are miniaturized and highly integrated motherboards specifically designed for laptops. The fact that they are almost unique is actually one of the reasons why laptops are so difficult to upgrade and repair.
As a matter of fact, Industrial PC motherboards need to be tougher than normal motherboards found in personal computers or laptops. Being used in tougher conditions than standard touch screen desktop computer motherboards, industrial motherboards, like industrial LCD displays or Industrial LCD touch screen monitor need to be able to cope with higher temperatures, need to be tougher in case of a shock or a hit, and need to last much longer, simply because they are intended to provide stable motherboard platforms for industrial users who demand long production lifetimes in extreme conditions.
How to install an industrial pc motherboard
Installing the motherboard is not something difficult. There is no need for a genius certificate or intellect to be able to do so. But only require a willingness and thoroughness. To do this, we will provide a guide for you.
1. Special attention for the jumpers.
Until now this really does not have a standard layout for the jumpers on the motherboard. This is because industrial motherboard manufacturer has a distinctive design layout. Although not pierce the respective producers. However, for your first time installing a new motherboard, we recommend reading the manual book. Because not all products motherboard, have text descriptions shown clearly on the motherboard PCB. Do not guess.
2. Screw technology.
It is Quite difficult to determine the right category for this. Before installing the motherboard, most of the casing has a screw that quite a lot. Optimize use. Try all point bolt hole fastening the motherboard installed. Thus, the motherboard can be installed in the casing with the sticky. But of course, it is not the original pair. Adjust the length and size in accordance with the screw hole is used.
3. Use I / O Shield.
An iron plate that works to close the rift there is between the input/output connectors of the motherboard. With a pair of iron plate, and in addition the computer will look neat, the computer also will be closed so as not be penetrated by dirt or insects. I / O Shield package is typically provided on a motherboard sales. Forms a specific, tailored to the availability of I / O on the motherboard that the product concerned. Should not use the I / O shield for the other motherboard, because it can prevent I / O is available.
4. Select the appropriate port.
With the assumption that the pair of SATA or PATA drive to plug in any can make your system booting. Some motherboard provides a RAID controller for SATA / PATA. You must first install the new Windows XP. You also need to make the first setting address in the BIOS and the RAID to be used on PATA hard drive.
5. Adjust the RAM.
Previous many people say that to run a dual-channel, simply how to install memory in accordance with the color. If you install memory in the first blue slot, the second memory also should be so. But what if the motherboard has 4 memory slots with the same color? The answer may be found in the motherboard manual. If you do not get the right configuration for dual-channel memory, the system most likely experience a decrease in performance is quite significant.
6. Use the appropriate power connectors.
In the latest motherboard, output connector using a different with the earlier. Therefore, pairs all have the power connector in accordance with that found on the motherboard, do not ever combine the two into one power plug, because it can cause fatal damage.
7. Faulty processor.
This is the part that so difficult in the motherboard. Because if you install a processor may not be your fault. In the old motherboard, you need tools to help screwdriver to remove the heat sinks. And a lot which has a high level of difficulty. Therefore if you are still using the old motherboard with a socket (Socket A, socket and 478) should be careful. Now in the motherboard (socket 775, 754, and 939) can be spelled without having to install directly using the screwdriver. The heat sinks far more easily operated, rather than processor time used
How to replace an industrial motherboard ISA
When replacing a motherboard there are a few things that should be considered to reduce the risk of damage or generally getting it wrong. The first thing to consider is your existing system. If you are replacing your existing motherboard then you need to know what specification you have. Your computer may be a branded PC such as HP, Sony etc and the motherboard may have their branding stamped on it. This makes things a little bit difficult as a replacement may only be obtained from the manufacturer and sometimes this may be impossible due to the age of the machine. If this is your situation then a look at the motherboard may help you to determine who originally manufactured the motherboard. (PC manufacturers do not make their own components they are usually made and branded by the component manufacturers). When looking at the motherboard write down every visible number or word that is written on it. Now turn to the internet and use a search engine to search these numbers and names and see what comes back. Usually, it will not take long before you have the original manufacturer and model number of the motherboard. User forums can be very useful when trying to obtain this information.
If building a new industrial touch screen PC from scratch it will be necessary to decide which processor brand and type you wish to use as this will directly affect which motherboard series you can buy and install. The motherboard contains a socket which holds the processor. AMD and Intel use different styles of the socket and this determines the motherboard that they can be fitted to. The next consideration is the case size. Motherboard sizes are called their “Form Factor”, this determines the size of board required. It is important to note the form factor of the PC case or chassis as the motherboard should be the same. For example, a micro ATX motherboard is designed to fit in a micro ATX case. After determining the above points you are half way there to determining which motherboard you require. The next important thing to note is the availability of ports and slots that hold other devices. These need to be considered carefully if you have existing devices to connect such as printers, digital cameras or external hard disk drives etc.
Make a list of all the hardware that you need to connect to the motherboard internally and externally. Once you have this list check each requirement off against the motherboard specifications to determine that it can support the devices you have. Pay particular attention to a number of USB devices you have. All the ports you see on the rear of your computer are part of the motherboard. Also, make sure there are enough internal connectors for your hard disk drives and CD/ DVD disk drives.
