Fanless industrial PC doubles performance
Product Exclusive: Siemens doubled performance capabilities of its embedded Microbox PC and Panel PCs. The industrial PCs, now fanless in all configurations, withstand 24-hour operating conditions within harsh environments.
Siemens has doubled the performance capabilities of its embedded Microbox PC and Panel PCs. The industrial PCs can withstand 24-hour operating conditions within harsh environments and are now fanless in all configurations. This innovative design enhancement reduces maintenance costs and eliminates concerns regarding temperature, vibration, shock, and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC).
Siemens Simatic IPC427D Microbox and the IPC477D Panel PCs are now available with the third generation Intel Core i7 (1.7 GHz) processor. For maximum performance, a turbo-boost feature allows the processor to deliver up to 2.4 GHz. Additional options include a 250 GB hard disk, expandable main memory, a DVD drive, and a nonvolatile memory of up to 512 KB for nonbattery applications.
For a further reduction in maintenance costs, the industrial computers can be remotely maintained and updated with integrated Intel AMT technology and optional Siemens Simatic IPC Remote Manager software. In addition, an 80-GB, solid-state drive (SSD) and a 16-GB CFast flash memory card with high-speed SATA interface offer high system availability and data security.
The IPC427D and the IPC 477D are designed for maximum flexibility. Measuring just 262 W x 133 H x 51 D mm, the Simatic IPC427D Microbox PC fits easily into small control boxes or is machine mounted. The Simatic IPC477D Panel PC has a rugged cast aluminum front panel with IP65 degree of protection and operates up to 50 C. It is available with a wide touchscreen display in 12-, 15-, 19-, and 22-in. options, as well as a 15-in. touch-keypad front panel.
