Phoenix Contact’s Designline industrial PCs are now available with an Intel Core i7 processor in the newly released 18.5- and 21.5-inch screen sizes, as well as the original 15-inch version. These models are IP65 rated and have a fanless design, making it possible to mount directly on the factory floor.
Because it is safe to use directly on the factory floor, it eliminates the need for additional control cabinet and housing costs. The VESA-mounting hardware mounts securely on the machine. This can improve ergonomics for the operator. For example, the device can be installed at eye level on the front of the machine, and used as a hardware platform for a manufacturing execution system.
Designline has multitouch capability for intuitive gesture control. Since it measures just 60-mm deep, the Designline IPC takes up minimal space. The integrated function button on the front ensures easy operation such as brightness adjustment, an easy-to-access software keyboard and a right-click function.
