The 1341 addresses the growing concern for reliability of rotating hard drives in these environments. Utilising solid-state media to store the operating system and application, higher levels of reliability are easily obtained. In addition there are no system fans to hinder cooling when airflow is restricted by dust and debris, often found in factory environments.
Higher performance, lower power
The 1341 utilise an Intel mobile Celeron M processor, while utilizing nearly half the wattage of many Pentium 4 class PCs. The Celeron M 1.3 GHz with 512 K Cache running at 400 MHz system bus provides enough processing power for many simple factory automation applications. The custom designed housing, which acts as a heat sink, coupled with the lower power usage allows the 1341 to operate in environments up to 50°C without the need for a system fan or additional cooling devices.
Full featured in a compact package
The 1341 offer 4 RS-232 serial ports, 4 USB 2.0 compliant ports, 10/100 Ethernet, parallel, video, PS/2 mouse and keyboard ports, and an audio port. Even more options are available with the half-length PCI expansion slot and the two PCMCIA card slots. There also is a CompactFlash Type I/II slot that is utilised for the system memory to store the operating system and application(s). All this is accomplished in a compact package that is about the size of a standard package of printer paper.
Superior video performance
The on-board 4X AGP graphics controller defaults to 4 MB system RAM to allow resolutions up to 1280 x 1024. In addition the 1341 automatically shares up to 32 MB system RAM to allow full 32-bit colour depth and 3D rendering.
Meets high standards
To survive on the plant floor the 1341 meets FCC, UL, cUL and European CE mark requirements for industrial automation equipment. Xycom Automation’s Industrial PCs lead the industry in reliability, service, and support with an optional five year warranty available.
