Xycom Automation Announces the Launch of the New 4117T
High Performance, Low Power 17" Light-Duty Industrial PCs
Saline, MI - October 19, 2006 - Xycom Automation announces the launch of the
latest addition to their family of Light-Duty Industrial PCs. This new 4117T
offers better processing power while using less wattage of many current
industrial PCs. The 4117T utilizes an Intel?Pentium M processor, used in many
commercially available laptop computers. The significantly decreased power usage
of the Pentium M processor when compared to a commercial desktop Pentium 4 type
processor is ideal for most factory automation applications requiring a NEMA
sealed enclosure. Less power usage makes controlling the operational temperature
inside the enclosure much easier to maintain, possibly without incorporating
expensive cooling devices.
The 4117T ships standard with a 17.0" TFT
color LCD flat panel that can display SXGA (1280 x 1024) resolution, a 1.4 GHz
Intel?Pentium M (2 M Cache, 400 MHz bus) processor, 512 MB DRAM, CD-R/W with DVD
read capability, and Windows?XP. There are DRAM options up to 2 GB and the
CD-R/W can be upgraded to a DVD-R/W drive.
In addition to the lower
power processor this new generation contains several other enhanced features.
Included in this extensive list are an 80 GB hard drive, a 10/100 and
10/100/1000 Base-T Ethernet port, three RS-232 ports, two USB 2.0 compliant
ports, Type I/II CompactFlash꽖 socket, and an external video port that can
display simultaneous video on an external monitor. If more interfaces are
required the half-length PCI expansion slots can be easily utilized to add
"The 4117T addresses the growing demand for
thin compact industrial PCs and NEMA sealed enclosures. The heat generated by a
Pentium 4 based Industrial PC is not conducive for these types of applications;
the temperature rise inside the enclosure causes excessive operational
temperatures and thus reduced reliability. By utilizing a low power Pentium M
processor these applications can again be considered feasible", states Ralph
Damato, Business Unit Manager for Industrial PC and Flat Panel products for
Xycom. "This newest offering is further evidence of how Xycom is addressing the
factory automation marketplace and continues to be the market leader in NEMA
mounted industrial PCs" continues Damato.
The 4117T carries the European
CE mark and includes UL and cUL agency approvals. It is also meets the new
European RoHS requirements. It can operate in 0℃ to 50℃ environments without
additional cooling, and can be purchased with Windows XP Professional or
Windows 2000 (multi-language) preloaded and configured to make setup a breeze.
