The C6640 has a more compact design, and the C6650 has up to two hard drives built into removable frames, making these control cabinet PCs suitable for RAID applications. These IPCs meet demand for small dimensions, high flexibility, and user-friendly access to all internal components. Measuring 370 x 305 x 200 mm (14.6 x 12 x 7.9-in.) the C6640 has upward facing connections so cables can be fed directly into the cable channel. The slightly larger C6650, with two hard drives built in to removable frames and an on-board RAID controller, forms a RAID 1 system with two mirrored hard drives for high data security. The hard disks can be exchanged easily during operation, according to the company.

Three free PCI and three PCI Express x1 slots are available for plug-in cards with a length up to 210 mm (8.3-inches). Graphics processors and 10/100 Mbit Ethernet adapters are on-board, without taking up a slot. RAM can be extended from 1 GB DDR3RAM up to 8 GB. The device can be equipped with a CD/DVD ROM, multi-DVD or Blu-ray multi-DVD drive. The C66xx series PCs are supplied with 100 to 240 V ac full range or a 24 V dc power supply unit. Motherboard, processor, memory and hard disk are upgradeable, and the same housing can be used for years.
