Lenovo Reveals New ThinkEdge Portfolio of Embedded Computers

Lenovo announced today its all new portfolio of embedded computers for the edge during the Embedded World 2021 DIGITAL virtual exhibition. Building from the existing edge portfolio from Lenovo, the ThinkEdge devices - the new ThinkEdge SE30 and ThinkEdge SE50 - are small, rugged, and powerful enough to meet the demanding needs of enterprise data processing, security and scalability at the edge.

The new Lenovo ThinkEdge devices are powered by Intel technology and built for the data needs of tomorrow. The embedded edge computers are for customers who need faster processing power, better security, and scalability. With the right data securely on hand for when it matters, businesses can be more efficient, insightful and competitive.
ThinkEdge SE30

The new ThinkEdge SE30 is a small and rugged compute device for edge workloads. It includes the latest 11th Gen Intel Core i5 vPro processors for industrial computing. The processor improves compute power, accelerates AI workloads, and is built for the challenges of edge implementations in enterprise with extended temperature support from -20 to +60 Celsius, long-life reliability, as well as enhanced security and manageability features.

The ThinkEdge SE30 will start with 4G support globally and have 5G availability with key carrier support in the second half of this year. 5G edge devices enhance wireless connectivity to match the low-latency, high-reliability, and high-capacity capabilities of existing wireline solutions with both improved agility of capabilities and better return on investments.

Embedded applications for the ThinkEdge SE30 include kiosks and ATMs for smart retail, automated production lines in manufacturing, and medical device monitoring in healthcare, among others.

Key Features / Specs:
  • 11th Generation Intel Core i5 vPro processors for industrial computing
  • Up to 16 GB memory and 1 TB storage
  • Fan-less, operational temperature range of -20 to 60 Celsius
  • Both 4G and 5G modules
ThinkEdge SE50

The new ThinkEdge SE50 is designed for versatile applications that require higher analytics and data processing at the edge. The embedded edge compute device includes an Intel Core i5 or i7 vPro processor for industrial computing and up to 32 GB of memory.

End users can deploy the ThinkEdge SE50 to aggregate and analyze real-time data from distributed IoT devices. This smart edge device can filter and forward IoT data across the WAN to the cloud or data center. Customers have the option to enhance their edge AI strategy with cutting edge silicon and optimized software leveraging the OpenVINO toolkit.

Key Features / Specs:
  • 11th Generation Intel Core i7 or i5 vPro processors for industrial computing
  • 32 GB memory and up to 2 TB storage
  • Fan-less, operational temperature range of 0 to 50 degree Celsius, and IP50 rating
  • 2-liter design with full industrial I/O
Availability

The Lenovo ThinkEdge SE30 and SE50 will be available in select markets worldwide starting mid-2021.

The problem with this:

is that they don't mention that you also need this.


The singular appeal of these tiny PCs is footprint and neatness. How hard would it be to make it 20mm taller and ingegrate the DC power brick?

Any IT director will tell you that he completely disagrees, the power source should not be included in the devices, due to device integrity issues if the electrical adapter breaks (something quite common); you are not going to dispose of equipment that is expected to have a useful life of 5 years.

something similar happens with laptops; the internal connectors of the adapter are no longer soldered; they go with a click ... because you are not going to discard a laptop because of a loose solder problem ...

When it comes to the industrial and professional environment, all-in-one designs are NOT well received ... unless it is a very exceptional case.

I'm sorry to tell you that you are 100% wrong.

The overwhelming majority of office IT equipment (so that's business monitors, desktops, photocopiers, large-format printers, projectors, large-format displays, servers, switches etc) all tend to have integrated power supplies.

As an IT director for one company and a consultant IT manager for two others, I can tell you with certainty that the two key advantages of an integrated PSU are ease of setup and cabling (something that can get exceptionally messy when you have 16 monitors and 8 computers and 8 desk phones all sharing the same cable tray under a row of desks) and the fact that when these are stored there's no risk of the power brick being lost. I actively avoid buying monitors and PCs that require proprietary AC adapters. Employees do misplace power bricks or simply forget them and leave them at the old location when moving hardware around. Good design mitigates incompetence; once you work with enough people you learn that you have to plan for mistakes because they will always be made eventually.

If the power brick fails under warranty, then it gets replaced under warranty. Whether you send off the power brick and have an unpowered unit or whether you send the whole unit back makes no difference to any IT department - it's the same process and same result regardless of whether the unit is integrated or seperate.
