It’s got two COM ports but where’s the Centronics port and the floppy drive? :confused:

Exactly what I was thinking.

The whole thing looks smaller than my 65MB EDSI hard drive. Will a TARDIS adapter be available? :stuck_out_tongue:

They are still widely used for management/control interfaces on industrial machinery. Also quite a lot of computing/network equipment aimed at the corporate market.

Ibex is correct.

A very large market for mini Pcs, Â especially enclosed/fanless is industrial and serial ports are still in use. These units are an option for bulk industrial control replacement.

Also, Â digital signage is a huge market, Â and these units are practically ready to go with a few sticks of ram, Â ssd, and player/control software.Â
