Schneider Electric Introduces Magelis Smart+ iPC Industrial PC



Schneider Electric announced Magelis Smart+ iPC industrial PC. It has Microsoft Windows XP Pro but does not require maintenance or contain any rotating parts (no hard disk or fan). It also offers all of the openness associated with Windows XP Pro. The Type 4X (IP65) touch screen shares the same 15" dimensions as the rest of the Magelis range. With its Intel Celeron M 1 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, and two Ethernet ports, Magelis Smart+ iPC offers great performance, and features a solid state drive (SSD) with Windows XP Pro.

The industrially rugged Magelis Smart+ iPC has been certified to the most demanding standards (UL 508 for industrial control equipment, UL and ATEX for hazardous locations, marine). It supports Vijeo Designer HMI applications (demonstration version can be expanded to unlimited version), as well as Vijeo Citect SCADA supervisor applications.

With a sealed touch screen, keyboard and pointer options, compact dimensions, and choice of DC or AC power supply, users are able to easily integrate the product into a wide variety of control systems. To further simplify user experience, Schneider Electric has created the open design that utilizes the Windows operating system for software applications support, and dual Ethernet ports, including high-speed ports for exceptional connectivity. All of this provides worry-free operation, greater longevity, and less risk of capability issues when implementing future systems.
