Customizable Automation PC 910 from B&R can use Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 CPUs.B&R's new box PC, the Automation PC 910, uses third-generation Intel Core i technology as its heart: Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 CPUs with up to four cores combined with the brand new QM77 Express chipset provide high-level industrial computer performance. As with previous Automation PC models, users can mix and match CPU performance with different sized main units as needed. For example a quadcore CPU can be used in a single-slot housing, or a single core Celeron can be used in a five-slot housing. This gives users freedom to achieve their own ideal price advantages.

PC infrastructure in these units has been streamlined for maximum computing performance and optimal data throughput. The Automation PC 910 now has a serial ATA-based CFast card to replace the previously used CompactFlash. B&R says it has chosen the proven approach of combining compact, CFast-based removable media with standard PC solid-state drives and hard disks in their latest industrial PC. These devices are also well-equipped when it comes to interface options: two ports for gigabit Ethernet, one serial, and one modular serial port such as RS485 or CAN, together with USB 3.0 ports to round off the capabilities of the Automation PC 910.
