Beckhoff has introduced the new C6930 industrial PC, which adds a high data security RAID option to the compact, control cabinet mountable C69xx industrial PC line. Designed for demanding industrial automation applications where compact devices are a must, the C6930 includes a 3.5-in. Beckhoff motherboard using Intel Core Duo or Core 2 Duo processors. C6930 IPC also features a range of PC interfaces, up to three Ethernet ports for use with EtherCAT-based controllers and optional fieldbus interfaces. Two free plug connector panels allow additional interfaces to be installed. The on-board SATA RAID controller mirrors two hard disks for increased data security. It can be used for configuration of RAID applications supported by TwinCAT automation software from Beckhoff. In addition to or instead of the hard drive, a flash disk can be integrated in the form of a Compact Flash (CF) card or a solid-state disk (SSD). Security can be enhanced further through optional UPS functionality. An easy to replace cooling fan cartridge with speed control and double ball bearing fans enable operation of the PC at temperatures up to 55 °C (131 °F).
