Box PC for use in harsh environments

May 2016 Industrial Computer Hardware

The Basicline 2000 box PCs from Phoenix Contact for use in harsh industrial environments now offer powerful third generation quad-core processors (Bay Trail) in fanless housing.

The devices can perform simple control and communication tasks and collect data in the areas of machine building and systems manufacturing, building automation, traffic technology, and energy data transmission. The box PCs are also designed for maintenance-free, continuous 24-hour operation, even when subjected to high temperature, vibration, shock and EMC requirements.

The box PC uses the powerful quad-core Intel Celeron N2930 processor (2,16 GHz) from the Bay Trail generation with integrated Intel HD graphics processor. It can be used for a wide range of applications thanks to its numerous interfaces, which include 4 x USB, 2 x DisplayPort, and 3 x COM. 2 x Gb Ethernet are also available, as is CFast, HDD or SSD mass storage. The RAM can be expanded by up to 8 GB DDR3.

With a thermal design power of 7,5 W, the box PC is particularly energy efficient. It is also designed for a temperature range of 0 to +50°C and an input voltage of 24 VDC. Its compact design measuring 162 x 145 x 49 mm means it can be mounted directly on the DIN rail, thereby enabling it to be easily combined with other components from the Phoenix Contact product range to create a customer-focused system solution.
