Automotive application

Post by Fuod »

My company is really interested in your Fit-PC2 for an application we are thinking about installing in all of our delivery vehicles. But, we have questions...

If we order a unit with instant on is there anyway we can tell the unit to shutdown after the ignition on the vehicle is turned off? It's not problem wiring straight to the battery, but some of our vehicles dont move for a week or more at a time and we don't want to drain the battery too much (especially in winter).

Basically, if we give the FitPC a second power supply other then the vehicles battery, is there anyway we can tell the unit to shut down? Kind of like a laptop when it's unplugged and running on batteries, it will go into standby (or shutdown) after a specified amount of time.

Hope I explained that well because this is kind of important to us!

Thanks!

Shutdown works properly with instant-on. However, if you cut the power to fit-PC2-ON and resume power - it will wake up.

So basically there is no way to acheive a graceful shutdown without actually shutting the PC down via it's OS (start->shutdown)?

Of course there is. Shutdown works normaly with instant-on.

Apparently I haven't explained what we are needing well enough.

It's cool though, I found my answer on a different forum and the FitPC is not capable of what we need, we are best sticking with a laptop.

Thanks anyway.

If you plug it to the same as your cig lighter it should die with the car. That would do it.
