Kontron presents two new Panel PC lines with a total of 18 variants




Kontron Covers all Angles:
Monitors from 10.4 to 19 Inches

Eching, Mai 18, 2004 - Kontron AG introduces its new but well-established Panel
PC lines, recently acquired from the company formerly known as ROI Computer
AG. This acquisition, guaranteeing the long-term availability of these systems for
customers, has nearly doubled Kontron’s available range of Panel PCs and HMI
systems. With a total of 35 variants, the HMI portfolio can be delivered with
countless configuration options – for example, with field buses such as
CANopen, DeviceNet, Profibus or Multidrop bus – and customization
possibilities, from individually designed front plates to redesigned CPU boards.


New to the portfolio are the Business Class and Economy Class Panel PCs, which
received a makeover reflecting Kontron’s corporate design and new components to
optimize Group-wide sales charges. In addition, a 17” system (Business Panel 170) was
added in response to the current explosion in industry demand for 17” systems –
especially for shop floor and infotainment solutions – following the increasing demand in
the office market. The software support packages were extended and worldwide
aftersales service and support for these systems were secured for the first time ever.


The Economy Class offers integrated field buses and scalable CPU modules
The field buses integrated on board (CANopen, DeviceNet, Profibus, Multidrop bus and
Ethernet) enable direct entry to the field level. Optimal shock and vibration resistance as
well as thermal stability and compliance with stricter EMC requirements are standard
features on this 100% industry-capable Panel PC. In addition, Kontron provides a
five-year availability guarantee with full system responsibility. Eco Panels can be scaled
from 10.4” to 15”.

The high-performance Business Class was developed especially for office-like
shop floor and infotainment applications
                                         ®         ®            ®
The Business Class systems, with Intel Pentium or Celeron processors, are
compact, computer-assisted, high-performance human-machine interfaces designed to
handle harsh industrial conditions. Their compact size reflects the limited space that is
available when they are being integrated into machines, equipment or control cabinets.
