SALINE, Mich., 2 Jan. 2007. Xycom Automation in Saline, Mich., is offering the 4700 Series of heavy-duty industrial personal computers with Intel M mobile processors for factory automation applications requiring NEMA sealed enclosures.

Low heat output eases controlling the enclosure's internal operational temperature, and can eliminate the need for expensive cooling devices, company officials say. The 4700 Series comes with a 1.3 GHz Intel Celeron M processor (512K cache, 400 MHz bus); 512 megabytes of DRAM, CD-ROM and Windows XP operating system.

As many as two cable-free serial ATA hard drives may be added (RAID-1 option is also available). Other enhancements include: an additional 10/100/1000 base-T Ethernet port; four USB 2.0-compliant ports; a Type I/II CompactFlash socket; an extra RS- 232/422/485 selectable serial port; and four PCI expansion slots.

The 4700 Series carries the European CE mark, as well as UL and cUL agency approvals. Approved for Class I and Class II, Division 2 Hazardous Locations, 4700 Series PCs can operate in 0 to 50 degrees Celsius without additional cooling.

Model 4715 units also include 15-inch XGA TFT LCD displays with resolution as fine as 1024 by 768 pixels due to the on-board 4X AGP graphics controller with 4 megabytes of system RAM. In addition, 4715 units automatically share as much as 32 megabytes of system RAM to enable 32-bit color depth and fast 3D rendering.

Users can choose from analog resistive touch screen, keypad with integrated mouse, or all three. For more information contact Xycom online at www.xycom.com.
