Phoenix Contact: Industrial PCs for simple applications

The VL2 1000 includes the VL2’s display in smaller sizes (7-, 9-, and 12.1-in. screens), as well as the 15.6-, 18.5-, and 21.5-in.-sized displays available in other VL2 models. This gives OEMs a consistent user interface on machines, whether they build small or larger applications. All of the displays have a capacitive-touch interface, allowing swiping, pinching, and multiple touch points at one time.

The optional CAN module provides configurability for communication protocols. Other configuration options include memory, mass storage, operating system, and fieldbus. The VL2 1000 ensures maximum uptime, thanks to a passively cooled, single-board design and a service-friendly, full-metal housing.
