IGEL H710C: Hardware 


 


 

 



Igel H710C Thin Client

I don't have an Igel H710C. The information here has been gleaned from Igel's publicity material with the more detailed technical information being provided by Peter Rohrer (Thank you Peter).

For a while the H710C was the core of Igel's UD5 (Generation ?) line of thin clients.

  • Background on the Universal Desktop series can be found here.
  • Background on the UD5 series can be found here.

I don't know when the H710C was launched, but it reached EOL on 31/05/2013, and end of maintenance 01/06/2016.

Available operating systems were:

  • IGEL Linux (LX) with 1GB flash/1GB RAM.
  • Microsoft Windows Embedded Standard (ES) with 2GB flash/1GB RAM.
  • Microsoft WIndows Embedded Standard 7 (W7) with 4GB flash/2GB RAM.

It came in one of three forms:

  • The entry level UD5-130 (running LX or ES)
  • The standard level UD5-430 (running LX or ES)
  • The advanced level UD5-730 (running LX, ES or W7)

The H710C runs either Igel Linux(LX), Microsoft Windows Embedded Standard (ES) or Microsoft Windows Embedded Standard 7(W7).

Power Supply

The IGEL H710C uses an external 12V supply with a conventional 5.5mm/2.1mm coaxial type connector. The supplied PSU is rated at 4A.

Expansion

Click on the photo for a larger image. click for larger image

Flash: The flash memory is easily replaceable. It is a vertical SATA DOM (top left in the photograph). Close by there is a second data only SATA socket. I assume the adjacent socket (CN4) can be used to provide power for any SATA device connected to it.

RAM: The RAM is a single DDR3 SO-DIMM. The datasheet lists this as a DDR3-1066 and gives the maximum size as 4GB.

PCIe: There is a PCIe socket on the board plus right-angled riser so that a PCI expansion card (4x) can fitted within the H710C's case.

Parallel Port: Apparently a parallel port is available within the foot of the case. There is a 44-pin connector (bottom right in the photo) that provides the connector for this expansion.
