Xycom Automation's Announces the Launch of the New 3115T Industrial PC - High Performance in a Compact Package

Released:  February 20, 2002

Saline, MI - Xycom Automation, Inc., a subsidiary of Pro-face America, Inc., and a market leader in Industrial PCs, announces the release of the 3115T flat panel computer. The 3115T is a compact, high-performance, all-in-one computer used for many light industrial and point of sale applications.

The 3115T unit comes standard with a 15-inch flat panel LCD and analog resistive touchscreen. A PentiumŪ III 850 MHz CPU, 256 MB RAM, and standard CD-ROM and floppy provide more than enough power and flexibility for the most demanding factory automation applications. With onboard 10/100 Base-T, two USB ports, two parallel printer ports, two RS-232 serial ports, one configurable RS-422/232/485 serial port, and PS/2 keyboard/mouse port, the 3115T is well-suited for use with virtually any standard PC compatible device. The 3115T even provides expansion capability via a half-length PCI card, and/or an externally accessible Type II compact flash site. All this power, connectivity, and expansion is contained in a package that is 12.17 inches (H) x 16.4 inches (W) and only 4 inches deep.

The 3115T offers several mounting options including panel mounting in a NEMA enclosure, mounting to the wall using the included bracket, or mounting to a VESA standard arm. The rear of the unit contains threaded holes for 75 and 100 mm VESA mounting.

"The 3115T excels as a light industrial or point-of-sale device that traditionally hasn't been addressed by our heavy industrial products," said Ralph Damato, Business Unit Manager, Industrial PC Products for Xycom Automation. "This product was highly requested in the past and now we can offer a competitive product with the quality and service that is synonymous with all Xycom Automation products."

The 3115T carries the European CE mark and includes UL and cUL agency approvals. It can operate in 0 degrees C to 50 degrees C environments without additional cooling, and can be purchased with MS-DOS, Windows 98, Windows NT, or Windows 2000 preloaded and configured to make setup a breeze. The 3115T displays resolutions up to XGA (1024 x 768), and with its BIOS-changeable video RAM can be optimized to display colors and 3-D graphics. The video RAM is configurable to 64 MB and is shared with the 256 MB standard DRAM.
