Powerful and Reliable Industrial Computers

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. -- In response to the growth of PC-based control and the growing need for increased processing power, Phoenix Contact has added new high-performance CPU options and additional screen size choices to their industrial PC product family.

A new slot-based CPU allows for the use of the latest high-performance Celeron M and Pentium M processors. These CPUs offer more processing power and 24 times the video memory than before. To enable the display of complex graphics in an easy-to-read screen resolution, new 17" and 19" color TFT touch screen sizes have been added to the already available 12" and 15" screen sizes. In addition, two standard Ethernet ports as well as side and front USB ports allow for flexible connectivity and communication options.

Phoenix Contact industrial PCs offer rugged metal construction and are designed for demanding industrial applications in high EMI noise environments. Additional features of the new CPU choices include more than 60% reduced power consumption when compared to a Pentium 4 CPU and increased system reliability since a CPU fan is no longer needed on select models. This new technology offers more power and reliability at a lower price.

When combined with fieldbus interface boards and the company's Steeplechase VLC control software, these PCs enable Phoenix Contact to offer a complete control solution for all modern automation systems.
