XYCOM Automation, represented by Balmoral Technologies , has announced the release of the 3712KPM flat panel industrial computer.
This product is a compact, high-performance, all-in-one computer, which supports cut-out compatibility with products used over the past 20 years.
Many of these older products are still in operation and updating hardware just became easier.
The 3712KPM is compatible with the panel cut-outs utilised by Xycom units, such as the 2050, 4150, 4850, 8450, 9450, 9475, 9485, and 9487.
The cut-out also matches those used by other vendors' units such as the Allen-Bradley T30, T35, T70 and SquareD SyView and SyMax units.
Many of these units cannot utilise the operating systems and applications used today. With the 3712KPM, a new computer can be put in place without altering the mounting hardware. A more extensive list is available from Xycom.
Operator input options include keypad with integrated industrial mouse with an optional touch screen (3712KPMT). The 3712KPM comes standard with a 12.1-inch SVGA flat panel LCD. A Celeron 850MHz CPU, 256MB RAM, 20GB hard drive, and standard CD-ROM and floppy provide more than enough power and flexibility for the most demanding factory automation applications.
Optionally, these products are available with a choice of Intel Pentium III 1.0 and 1.26GHz processors, and DRAM options up to 512MB.
With onboard 10/100 Base-T Ethernet, USB port, parallel port, two serial ports, and PS/2 keyboard/mouse port, these units are suitable for use with virtually any standard PC compatible device.
