4600 and 4700 Product Transition
The 4600 and 4700 series are now shipping. Replace all 3600 and 3700 units before year end.

The 4600 and 4700 series products are available for orders in the online configurator, and datasheets and product pages are now available on the Xycom website. These new products may literally be the finest Heavy-Duty industrial PCs on the market today. With their Intel Mobile Celeron M or Pentium M processors these products offer superior performance while utilizing less wattage than most industrial PCs. This makes them ideal for factory automation applications. All 3600 series products can be directly replaced with a higher performance 4600 series product in the same package for a comparable price. For this reason it is very easy to transition your customers to this new product. It is imperative that this process begin immediately because the 3600 series products will not be shipping past the end of 2006. In fact the last date for orders of the 3600 and 3700 products (all variations) is December 15, 2006. After that there is no guarantee of availability and the prices will be raised.

Please note that MS-DOS, ISA expansion, Windows 9X, and Windows NT are no longer supported on the 4600 and 4700 series products. Xycom has been emphasizing the importance of transitioning customers away from these older operating systems and applications. We have also been warning that this will not be supported in the future. The 4600 and 4700 series marks that end of Xycom supporting these older alternatives. We have supported this longer than the vast majority of industrial PC suppliers. Unfortunately this can no longer be supported with current PC chipsets and devices.

A cut-out compatibility and transition chart is now available on the CP section of the Xycom website. Contact Xycom Sales manager or Representative to assist you in this important product transition. They will be more than happy to assist.(e-mail : webmaster@xycom.co.kr)
