Compact industrial PCs balance energy efficiency and CPU power


Compact industrial PCs

The VL BPC 1000 is the latest addition to Phoenix Contact’s Valueline family of configurable industrial PCs. The heart of the VL BPC 1000 is the energy-efficient Intel Atom® N455 1.6 GHz CPU.

The VL BPC 1000 is powered with 24 V DC. It is fanless, DIN rail-mountable and comes in a compact form factor that saves valuable panel space. Four USB ports, two gigabit LAN ports and three serial ports make it easy to connect to the enterprise and other devices. A  VGA port provides the ability to connect a display for visualization, such as the Phoenix Contact flat panel monitors.

Valueline is a family of configurable industrial PCs that provides versatile options for the operation and monitoring of systems and machines. When combined with other Phoenix Contact automation components, Valueline can create a complete, customized solution.
