Simatic Panel PC577 from Siemens Energy and Automation has a compact design for use where space is limited.

Two new panel PCs for industrial requirements include the Simatic Panel PC 577 from Siemens Energy and Automation and the Industrial Panel PC from Apollo Display Technologies . Both are designed for a variety of rugged and industrial applications including machine automation, industrial control, and digital signage.

 

Simatic Panel PC577 is equipped with an Intel Pentium 4 processor (2.4 GHz), main memory expandable to 3 GB, and a 40-GB hard disk. Unit features an Ethernet port, and a USB 2.0 port integrated in the front for quick data storage. Device operates without fans for minimal maintenance. It has an expandable, compact design and shallow 75-mm installation depth for use where space is at a premium. It is IP65 and NEMA 4 (front) rated.

Industrial Panel PC from Apollo Technologies features a drop-in design for plug-and play use.

Industrial Panel PC has a Pentium 4 CPU, rugged space-saving enclosure, and drop-in design for plug-and-play use. Unit comes in two standard modules: one with a 12.1-in. SVGA or XGA LCD and the other with a 17-in. SXGA LCD. Both have wide viewing angles, high contrast ratios, and high brightness. Series is fully scalable by removing the U-bracket on the cradle of the enclosure and substituting it with one of the appropriate size. Unit accommodates LCDs from 12.1-in. through 19-in. diagonal. It is capable of full-motion color display and full interface capability. Operating temperature range is 0-50 °C.
