Beckhoff releases new energy-saving panel PCs with Intel Atom CPU
Multi-functional and compact Panel PC for complex automation tasks is designed for reduced energy consumption.
Integrating the 1.1 or 1.6 GHz Intel Atom processor into a Beckhoff control panel turns the rugged IP65 display device into a powerful, multi-tasking panel PC with a slim housing design. The CP77xx has a very low housing depth: between 1.1-in and 1.8-in (28 and 45 mm) depending on the screen size. The CPU is integrated into a slim format control panel housing and can be equipped with a 6.5, 12, 15 or 19 inch display screen. Therefore, users are offered a mid-range automation and display device containing no rotating parts, even in the compact 6.5-in. format.
Users benefit from significant energy savings due to the low power consumption of the Atom CPU. The CP77xx also is equipped with a Compact Flash card, which is accessible under a cover in the back of the panel. Two RJ 45 Ethernet connections and an RS232 interface in the rear of the panel are standard. A two-port USB interface is available as an option.
