Phoenix Contact releases Valueline BPC embedded box PCs
April 10, 2011 - Phoenix Contact releases Valueline BPC embedded box PCs for harsh industrial environments. The Valueline BPC is especially suited for control applications in the industrial environment, in outdoor embedded systems, and in machine and plant construction – and offers an extended temperature range from –40 °C to +70 °C and an input voltage range from +9 V to +36 V.
Designed for embedded operating systems, such as Windows Embedded Standard, Windows CE, or LINUX, the box PC utilizes reliable standards that make it possible for customers to commission it simply. With a thermal design power (TDP) of 4.5 W, it is especially energy-efficient. Its compact design allows it to be directly snapped onto mounting rails so that it can be combined with other components from the Phoenix Contact product range to create a customer-oriented system solution.
The fanless PC uses the industrial temperature grade Intel Atom processor Z510PT (1.1 GHz) and features a wide range of interfaces, including 6x USB 2.0, 1x VGA, and 1x COM (RS232 / 422 / 485). 2x Gigabit Ethernet ports are available as well as a CompactFlash slot and digital I/Os. The main memory can be extended using a DDR2 SODIMM with up to 2 GB.
