XYCOM Automation, represented by Balmoral Technologies , has announced the release of the 3615 and 3715 families of flat panel industrial computers.
Both families are compact, high-performance, all-in-one computers used for many factory automation and process applications.
These products further enhance Xycom's new generation of industrial PC products that has already begun to replace the 3500 series product lines.
Operator input options include touch screen, keypad with integrated industrial mouse, or a combination of all three. These units directly replace the current 3515 and 3535 offerings at a lower price.
The 3615 and 3715 come standard with a 15.0-inch XGA 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 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.
All 3615 and 3715 variations carry the European CE mark and include UL and cUL agency approvals. This new line is also approved for Class I and Class II, Division 2 hazardous locations.
Additionally, the keypad units have front access USB and PS/2 ports, which are approved nonincendive circuits for connection within hazardous locations.
Both can operate in 0°C to 50°C environments without additional cooling, and can be purchased with MS-DOS, Windows 98, Windows NT, Windows 2000 (multi-language) or Windows XP preloaded and configured.
