Đặc điểm, đặc trưng chính của SIMATIC Box PC

Compact dimensions

Due to its ultra-compact design, the SIMATIC IPC127 is especially suitable for retrofits / brownfield systems.

SIMATIC IPC227 is an especially compact and energy-efficient PC in nano format. High-performance Intel processors form the heart of the Nanobox PC with particularly versatile mounting options.

SIMATIC IPC427 (Microbox PC) is an ultra-compact and rugged device for DIN rail mounting, portrait or wall mounting, and for use in the machine: Overall depth from 55 mm.

SIMATIC IPC627 (Box PC) With a maximum overall depth of 100 mm (80 mm without DVD drive), the Box PC can be used even in the smallest of spaces. In addition, space-saving portrait mounting is possible with the SIMATIC Box IPC627/IPC827.

Rugged design

All designs aim to achieve maximum safety in the case of vibration and shock loads. For example, a special vibration-absorbing suspension of the hard disk ensures operational reliability, even at very high mechanical loads. A flash drive slot, which is easily accessible from outside, or a solid-state drive (SSD) is available for setting up low-maintenance, high-availability, diskless systems.

Thanks to its fan-free design and use of CompactFlash/CFast cards, the Microbox PC and the Nanobox PC are especially suitable for maintenance-free 24-hour continuous operation.

Service-friendly device design

The Box PC can simply be folded out for speedy component replacement. The inside of the device is easily accessible for future expansions.

Integrated interfaces

On Box PCs, all interfaces are located on one side. Box PCs can be interfaced with the control/cell level via onboard Ethernet interfaces and communicate in the field via an integrated PROFIBUS interface, which is available as an option. External monitors or displays can be connected via a DVI-I or DisplayPort interface.

Flexibility

Especially the SIMATIC IPC827 with its 5 free PC slots offers multiple expansion options. All Box PCs have CE certification for use in industrial applications and domestic/commercial applications and can therefore be used in building automation or public installations in addition to industrial applications.

Continuity

Thanks to motherboards developed and manufactured in-house, the SIMATIC Box PCs offer a very high degree of continuity and security of investment. The SIMATIC Box PC models can normally be ordered for a period of 3 years and spare parts are obtainable for at least 5 years after expiration of the active marketing period.

System availability

SIMATIC Box PCs can be ordered in custom configurations and are supplied ready for use. The high system availability by design can be further extended by means of additional data backup options (e.g. RAID system, SIMATIC IPC Image & Partition Creator) and efficient software for self-diagnostics (SIMATIC IPC DiagMonitor).
