High performance, lower power

The 4117T utilises an Intel mobile processor providing superior processing power while utilising half the wattage of a comparable Pentium 4 processor. The Pentium M 1.4 GHz processor out performs the desktop Pentium 4 2.0 GHz used in the 4115T while utilising less wattage.

The increased processing power with less heat generation makes the 4117T ideal for many factory automation applications requiring a NEMA enclosure. Less wattage input into the system results in less temperature rise in the enclosure. With less temperature rise the maximum ambient operating temperature is more easily maintained, possibly without the need for expensive enclosure cooling devices.

Sharp, easy-to-read displays

The 4117T incorporates a bright 17.0" LCD with SXGA (1280 x 1024) resolution and an analogue resistive touch screen into a thin light-duty industrial PC. The on-board 4X AGP graphics controller provides full colour resolution when displaying a 1280 x 1024 application screen.

Full compliment of I/O ports

The 4117T comes standard with an extensive array of I/O ports (see photo below), including three high speed RS-232 ports, one parallel port, 2 USB 2.0 compliant ports, PS/2 mouse and keyboard ports, one 10/100 and one 10/100/1000 Mbps Base-T Ethernet ports, one VGA port, and audio ports (in/out/mic).

In addition a half-length PCI and Type I/II CompactFlash card can also be added to even further enhance I/O needs. The VGA port can be utilised to connect a VGA monitor. The built-in display and an additional monitor can be utilised simultaneously (both showing the same image).

Cooling enhancements

When installing 4117T into an enclosure, extra care should be exercised to ensure that the ambient air around the unit (inside the enclosure, not outside the enclosure) does not exceed 50°C. Exceeding 50°C may cause premature degeneration of the unit. Even though the 4117T utilises a lower wattage Pentium M processor than the Pentium 4 based 4115T care still needs to be exercised when installing the 4117T into an undersized enclosure.

Consult the enclosure manufacturer for proper sizing and/or cooling options. The product specifications and ratings section of this datasheet contains the information an enclosure manufacturer will require.

Mounting options

The 4117T is designed to be mounted directly into an equipment panel without requiring special mounting plates or brackets. The 4117T can also be mounted on a wall with the wall-mount adapter included in the mounting kit or it can be mounted on a standard 100 mm VESA swing or pendent arm. The 4117T is not NEMA rated if mounted outside of a panel.

Xycom 4117T Industrial PC is preloaded with Windows XP operating system (Windows 2000 optional) and is available from Balmoral Technologies.
