August 6, 2015 - Phoenix Contact releases Valueline 2 (VL2) industrial PCs with a gull-wing access door, which reduces maintenance time and also provides easy access to the PCI/PCI-e card.
The PCs have DisplayPort++ for high-resolution images and streaming over a single connector. The 10-point capacitive multi-touch screen allows a more interactive user interface.
VL2 has a second 2.5-inch SATA drive bay. This not only increases storage capacity but also adds Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) 0 and 1 functionality. RAID 1, which is more common in industrial applications, “mirrors” the same data on two different drives for redundancy. RAID 0 “stripes” or splits data across multiple drives for quicker processor speeds.
The VL2 is ideal for areas such as process visualization, robotics, industrial automation, and test benches, as well as quality assurance.
