Built for fortified industrial cyber security applications, the ICS-6280 can be deployed anytime, anywhere.


(Taipei, Taiwan – August 30, 2022) Network security is of paramount importance in the energy, oil and gas industries, which is why AAEON, a leading manufacturer of industrial IoT and AI Edge solutions, has introduced the ICS-6280, its latest Industrial-Grade Network Appliance.

Powered by the Intel® Atom™ x6000E series processors (formerly Elkhart Lake), the ICS-6280 is specially designed for optimal performance in rugged industrial environments, with features such as redundant power supply capabilities supporting wide voltage inputs from 9Vdc to 48Vdc. This is bolstered by its wide operating temperature of -40°C ~ 75°C, which ensures continuity of operation in industrial settings.

While durable and rugged, the ICS-6280 maintains excellent connectivity via its sophisticated and purpose-built I/O, with LAN Bypass and wireless network support, including expansion options to facilitate Wi-Fi and cellular network connections for excellent networking even in remote deployment scenarios.

The most important element to be considered when building an industrial IoT network is security, particularly in the energy, oil and gas sectors. Therefore, the ICS-6280 insures against threats by incorporating physical security features such as an isolated COM port, alongside NGFW, redundant power supply, and UTM support to its mechanism.

AAEON sees the ICS-6280 as the ideal device to provide reliable industrial network solutions, and also provides the option of easy integration with existing systems via a DIN rail mount for deployment in secure machine cabinets.
