Phoenix Contact's new Basicline 2000 box PCs for use in harsh industrial environments now offer powerful 3rd generation quad-core processors (Bay Trail) a fanless housing.
The devices can perform 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 where there are high temperature, vibration, shock, and EMC requirements.
This box PC uses the powerful quad-core Intel Celeron N2930 processor (max. 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 × USB, 2 × DisplayPort, and 3 × COM. 2 × Gigabit Ethernet are also available, as is CFast, HDD or SSD mass storage. The RAM can be expanded by up to 8GB DDR3.
With a thermal design power (TDP) of 7.5W, the box PC is particularly energy efficient. It is also designed for a temperature range of 0degC to +50degC and an input voltage of 24V DC (+/-20 per cent). Its compact design measuring 162 × 145 × 49mm 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.
