19-inch rack industrial PC, SIMATIC IPC547D
Special hard-disk supports, card retainers and power plug interlocks ensure protection against vibration and shock. The new PC offers flexible expansion possibilities via a PCIe x8 (1 lane) slot, two PCIe x16 (2.0 with 16 and 4 lanes) and four PCI slots for long expansion cards. One DVI and Display Port interface as well as an optional PCI-Express x 16 graphics card enable multi monitoring with up to four monitors.
The new rack PC has various interfaces: Two teaming-capable Gigabit-Ethernet and eleven USB-2.0 interfaces, of which two are on the front, and one is internal with additional mechanical interlocking for the use of a software dongle. For fast and reliable data storage, SATA hard disks are used with up to one terabyte capacity or a solid-state drive. For efficient diagnostics, the device features status LEDs on the front for fan, temperature and hard disks in the RAID network. For device diagnostics, the optional diagnostics software SIMATIC IPC DiagMonitor can be used. For password-protected remote access, for example, for the purposes of remote diagnosis or remote monitoring, the user can utilize the Intel Active Management Technology (Intel AMT 7.0) that is integrated into the Intel Core i7 and i5 processors. The energy consumption of the device can be lowered by using the Wake-on-LAN functions, or by switching between standby and active modes remotely.
The new SIMATIC Rack PC IPC547D can be supplied, if required, with a preinstalled and preactivated operating system – Windows XP Professional or Windows 7 Ultimate (32-bit and 64-bit). Variants with Windows Server 2008 (32-bit) / 2008 R2 (64-bit) will be available soon. A tower kit is also available, which allows the PC to be used as an industrial workstation or server in control rooms and technical offices.

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.
Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...
In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
