Product photoNEW!! 1506 Industrial "Node" PC
Xycom Automation's newest generation of industrial PCs are designed and tested for the tough environments required for plant floor use. Our standard PC configurations meet the strict specifications required for use in hazardous locations and Europe's CE mark. Based on CPU boards designed specifically for industrial automation, these systems provide the capabilities required by demanding applications. With an installed base of over 200,000 systems, our industrial PC products are successfully applied in manufacturing and process environments world-wide.

Superior Video Performance
The on-board AGP graphics controller defaults to 4 MB system RAM which allows full color resolution up to 1280 x 1024 resolution. In addition, the 1506 will automatically share up to 32 MB system RAM to allow full 32-bit color depth and fast 3D rendering and graphics performance.

Higher Performance
With up to 1.26GHz Pentium III processors available, the 1506 can drive the most demanding applications. The 1506 ships standard with an 850 MHz Celeron with 128K cache running at 100 MHz bus. Optional 1.0 GHz with 256K cache and 1.26GHz with 512K cache, both running at 133 MHz bus, are available options.

Fits Your Needs
The 1506 can be configured many different ways. With four available expansion slots – three ¾-length (1 PCI, 1 ISA, and 1 either ISA or PCI), and one ½-length PCI, many cost effective, industry standard options are easily integrated. The optional dual hard drive, externally accessible Compact Flash, or external drive bay connector provide the storage solution you require. Additionally the CD-ROM can be upgraded to a read/write drive so that even more storage and/or backup options are available. The optional 9000-XBAY allows you to externally mount any two IDE devices without requiring a power supply or unreliable cabling.

Meets High Standards

To survive on the plant floor, the 1506 meets FCC, UL, cUL, and European CE mark requirements for industrial automation equipment. Xycom Automation leads the industry in reliability, service, and support with an optional five year warranty available.

With the cover removed expansion cards are easily installed in the 1506 without cumbersome cables to contend with.
Mounting Options
The 1506 offers two mounting options: Vertical (shown on left) and Horizontal (shown on right).
Easily Replaceable Hard Drive
The 1506 has incorporated an easy access hard drive mount. Simply remove 2 screws and extract the hard drive. Remove the metal bracket and retention spring, attach it to the new hard drive and install your replacement.
Secondary Drive Options
The 1506 has several options for the secondary IDE port on the CPU. The hard drive can be replaced with a dual hard drive unit for redundancy. If solid state storage media is desired than an externally accessible Type I or Type II CompactFlash™ option is available. If a DVD, Tape backup, or other IDE device is required than an external connector for a remote drive bay can be ordered.

Remote Drives
With the external bay connector (shown above) installed, the 9000-XBAY* can be utilized. The 9000-XBAY allows any two IDE devices to be installed and connected to the 1506 via a single cable. This cable carries power and the IDE signals so that one connection is all that is needed (some devices may require an additional power supply* to be utilized). The 9000-XBAY can be mounted on a shelf, behind a panel, or used with a NEMA door (optional).

*9000-XBAY and external power supply are both sold separately.
