In addition, microSD flash memory cards are used as the storage media.

The CP6606 is designed as a cabinet-mounted device in a fanless format, which makes it useful in PLC and small motion control applications. When paired with the feature-laden TwinCAT runtime (version 2 or 3), the CP6606 becomes a flexible automation controller for small and medium-sized machines, factories or buildings. The CP6606 can also be used as an OPC UA client or server.

The CP6606 Panel PCs feature an operating temperature range from 0 C to 55 C (-25 C to +65 C storage temperature range) as well as IP54 protection at the front of the panel and IP20 at the back. Available connections include: 1 x slot for a microSD flash card, 1 x COM1 serial interface, 2 x USB ports, 1 x Ethernet port, 1 x EtherCAT port, and power.
