Important Information:
Replacing the FI 25 by a Panel PC670 is associated with changes to the mechanics/cable routing and often requires the re-creation of the software projects, which results in additional engineering work that should not be underestimated.
Effective immediately, all configurations of the FI 25 V2 will be equipped with a 10.5 GB hard disk drive. The 4.3 GB hard disk drive option will no longer be available.
