LT360: Hardware 


 


 

 



Rangee LT360

Origins

LT360 product label

This is an odd one in one respect: Who makes it?

Mine came in the original packaging but that only carries the label LT360. In a similar vein the label on the unit itself just says LT360. There is nothing to identify the manufacturer or distributor of the unit. However Google found me Rangee, a German company based in Aachen that is a manufacturer of thin clients. Elsewhere I've found references to LT360 Rangee.

The Rangee website is one of those focussed very much on the present and includes the LT550E which is visually the same as the LT360. As you can see below the LT360 is based on a Gigabyte mini-ITX motherboard so I assume that over time the product has been upgraded by changing out the older mini-ITX board for a newer model without revamping the case.

The Intel N270 was launched in mid 2008 and the BIOS in my LT360 is dated 2009.

Mine came with no flash and so no OS. It may well have been the PXE version.

The data sheet mentions options of Rangee Linux or Windows 7 embedded standard.

Rangee LT360 PSU

Power Supply

The unit runs off a 12V supply. The PSU supplied with my example is rated at 12V 4A and was manufactured by Gospel. (Model GP008CX). It uses one of those 4-pin DIN connectors.

CPU

The CPU is an Intel Atom N270. This is a single core CPU with hyperthreading and so looks like a dual core CPU.

Motherboard: The LT360 motherboard is actually a Mini-ITX board manufactured by Biostar. It is a BI94GS-IA and a copy of the user manual is here. Note the version of the motherboard fitted to the LT360 is fitted with a subset of the full specification - for example there is only one serial port and one ethernet port.

Flash: as noted earlier my unit came without any flash memory. The board carries a 40-pin IDE connector and two SATA data connectors. The manual indicates that the SATA support is SATA II (3GB/s).

Adjacent to the SATA/IDE connectors are two power connectors:
JDOM1 which provides +5V for the IDE flash module
JHDD1 which provides +12V/+5V/+3.3V for a SATA flash/drive.

RAM: The RAM is a standard DDR2 SODIMM. Although various manuals say '1GB max' my unit is fitted with a 2GB DDR2 module.

PCI: Being a generic Mini-ITX motherboard there is a standard 32-bit PCI connector. This is unusable with the motherboard fitted within the housing.

USB: There are two USB2.0 sockets on the front panel and four USB2.0 sockets on the rear panel.

Links: There are a number of links on the board. Details can be found in the motherboard manual.
