With its clean and sleek design, the IP65-compliant front with multi-touch capabilities acts as the interface for every system.

As a manufacturer of innovative automation technology, Phoenix Contact develops robust panel PCs tailored to the requirements of industrial production processes. Equipped with modern Intel® Core™ i processors, combined with flexible RAM and storage extension that can be adapted to the requirements; the latest generation of Valueline panel PCs is able to smoothly display ever complex system processes in detail.

The rear panel of the housing was optimized for quick maintenance access as shown below; allowing easy access to all essential components.


The spring loaded retractable latch shown below temporarily holds the IPC in place, allowing it to be easily installed by 1 person. This increases manpower efficiency as it is no longer required for 2 people to do the installation – one person to hold the IPC in place, while the other screws the mounting brackets.
