The processors are based on Intel's latest generation of Core-i technology and can be scaled over the full range – from Celeron to Core i7. This allows computing power to be tuned perfectly to the application at hand.
All variants are fanless, so the Panel PC 3100 features no rotating parts. This makes maintenance tasks like replacing air filters a thing of the past. The scalable memory options range from 4 to 32 GB.
For all applications that need to be compatible with existing systems, 4:3 panels with analog resistive touch screens are also available. This makes it possible to continue using HMI applications at their current resolution with the latest PC platform without having to modify the software a single bit.

Whereas the Automation PC 3100 is designed to control remote panels, the Panel PC 3100 combines a PC and display into a single system. The PC unit can be combined with any cabinet-mounted Automation Panel with a diagonal of 10.1" or larger.
The Panel PC 3100 offers a variety of modular interface options. The two slots can accommodate cards for serial interfaces, Ethernet, CAN and POWERLINK. The slots can also be used for a UPS solution or audio interfaces. The industrial PC also comes with slots for two industrial-strength CFast data storage devices. With up to 256 GB each, the CFast cards can be used to boost performance, as backup protection against failure or as a RAID set.
Another advantage of the latest generation Core i-series and Atom technology is that it manages to significantly increase performance while lowering power consumption – delivering maximized energy efficiency and virtually eliminating the need for internal fans. Panel PC 3100 devices feature passive cooling as standard.
