SEL’s TCO Calculator demonstrates the bottom-line impact of reliable computing

SEL has launched a new tool to make choosing the right industrial computer easier than ever: the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Calculator. This intuitive, web-based tool lets you compare the true costs of industrial computers over their entire lifecycles and demonstrates how much can be saved by investing in reliable equipment up front.

Why TCO?

Comparing upfront costs is simple but misleading. Indirect costs (such as unplanned downtime, repairs, replacements, lost productivity, and lost data) can add up to far more than the price of a computer itself. Only by accounting for all the expenses over the lifetime of an industrial computer can you make the most responsible, economical decision.

About the Calculator
After you access the TCO Calculator site and sign in to your mySEL account, you’ll be asked to enter some basic information about the computers you want to evaluate and their maintenance costs. From this, the calculator will automatically generate intuitive charts and tables for analysis. If you don’t have precise data, no problem. You can change the values on-the-fly and see the results update in real time.

By investing in quality from the start, you can reap the benefits for years to come. See for yourself how the TCO for SEL computers compares to standard industrial computers.
