Product Warranty (2 years)
Advantech warrants to you, the original purchaser, that each of its products will be
free from defects in materials and workmanship for two years from the date of purchase.
This warranty does not apply to any products which have been repaired or altered by
persons other than repair personnel authorized by Advantech, or which have been
subject to misuse, abuse, accident or improper installation. Advantech assumes no
liability under the terms of this warranty as a consequence of such events.
Because of Advantech’s high quality-control standards and rigorous testing, most of
our customers never need to use our repair service. If an Advantech product is defective, it will be repaired or replaced at no charge during the warranty period. For outof-warranty repairs, you will be billed according to the cost of replacement materials,
service time and freight. Please consult your dealer for more details.
If you think you have a defective product, follow these steps:
1. Collect all the information about the problem encountered. (For example, CPU
speed, Advantech products used, other hardware and software used, etc.) Note
anything abnormal and list any onscreen messages you get when the problem
occurs.
2. Call your dealer and describe the problem. Please have your manual, product,
and any helpful information readily available.
3. If your product is diagnosed as defective, obtain an RMA (return merchandise
authorization) number from your dealer. This allows us to process your return
more quickly.
4. Carefully pack the defective product, a fully-completed Repair and Replacement
Order Card and a photocopy proof of purchase date (such as your sales receipt)
in a shippable container. A product returned without proof of the purchase date
is not eligible for warranty service.
5. Write the RMA number visibly on the outside of the package and ship it prepaid
to your dealer.

General Introduction
This chapter gives background
information on ARK-1360 series.
1.1 Introduction
ARK-1360 Embedded Box IPC is an application ready system platform solution. All
electronics are protected in a compact sealed aluminum case for easy integration in
the customers own housing, or as a stand-alone application, where space is limited
and the environment harsh.
ARK-1360 answers this demand by offering 4 x USB 2.0 ports, 1 x GbE LAN port , 2
x COM ports and 1 x 8-bit GPIO port; packed into a small rugged unit and powered
by an Intel Atom Z510P 1.1GHz/Z530P 1.6GHz processor. ARK-1360 is also with 1 x
miniPCIe interface for expansion. The ARK-1360 Compact Embedded Computer can
be equipped with a solid state onboard CF card of up to 32 GB, so it easily passes 50
and 5 Grms shock and vibration tests. And it supports a wide range of input voltages
from 12 VDC to 24 VDC.
ARK-1000 can be standalone, wall-mounted, DIN-rail mounted or VESA mounted.
The series accepts a wide range of power supplies (DC power in) and comes in a
footprint of only 189 x 41 x 130.6 mm (7.44" x 1.61" x 5.14"). The rugged cast aluminum case not only provides great protection from EMI, shock/vibration, cold and
heat, but also passive cooling for quiet fanless operation.

3.1 BIOS Introduction
AwardBIOS 6.0 is a full-featured BIOS provided by Advantech to deliver superior performance, compatibility, and functionality to industrial PCs and embedded boards. Its
many options and extensions let you customize your products to a wide range of
designs and target markets.
The modular, adaptable AwardBIOS 6.0 supports the broadest range of third-party
peripherals and all popular chipsets, plus Intel, AMD, nVidia, VIA, and compatible
CPUs from 386 through Pentium, AMD Geode, K7 and K8 (including multiple processor platforms), and VIA Eden C3 and C7 CPUs.
You can use Advantech's utilities to select and install features that suit your needs
and your customers' needs.
3.2 BIOS Setup
The ARK-1360 Series system has build-in AwardBIOS with a CMOS SETUP utility
which allows users to configure required settings or to activate certain system features.
The CMOS SETUP saves the configuration in the CMOS RAM of the motherboard.
When the power is turned off, the battery on the board supplies the necessary power
to the CMOS RAM so the settings are saved.
When the power is turned on, press the <Del> button during the BIOS POST (PowerOn Self Test) which will take you to the CMOS SETUP screen.
