12/2/2003 - Kontron rolled out the Kontron PowerPAC PaneIPC-VL. The cost-optimized Kontron PowerPAC PaneIPC-VL is an industrial graphical user terminal offering today's highest levels of performance. The unit's two half-size PCI expansion slots provide more than enough flexibility for most HMI applications. The 15" 250 cd/mē resistive touchscreen display is bright enough to ensure the successful operation of any application even in direct sunlight. An optional multilingual multifunctional soft keyboard also is available. With a height of 7 RU, the PowerPAC PaneIPC-VL can be mounted into an operator console or a 19" switchgear cabinet. Any installation and maintenance work performed on the Panel-PC is a cinch thanks to the unit's "Quick Change" mechanism, which allows the PC and display units to be separated from each other without using any tools. This ensures fast and easy access to all PC components.
The PowerPAC PaneIPC-VL is fitted with Intel® processors and it currently can accommodate up to a 1 GHz Pentium® III processor and up to 512 MB of RAM. A 3.5" floppy disk drive and a CD ROM / DVD bay are provided along with a 2.5" hard drive with a current storage capacity of up to 60 GB. An onboard Compact Flash socket can accommodate Compact Flash cards with up to 1 GB capacity. Additional features can be added via two half-size PCI boards that are simply slotted into the system. Kontron also can supply the desired configuration with a customized front panel and all relevant industrial approval certificates. Other display types and sizes are available upon request. The PowerPAC PaneIPC-VL supports the Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows embedded XP and Linux operating systems.
