Industrial rack PC with performance boost

20.09.2013
• Latest PC technology with performance boost for 19-inch industrial rack PC
• Low power loss, high computing and graphics performance
• High system availability and data security
• Flexible use as workstation or server

The Siemens Industry Automation Division has equipped its new 19-inch industrial rack PC, Simatic IPC547E, with powerful fourth generation Intel Core processors and the latest PC technology.


Industrial rack PC with performance boost

Core i7 four-core processor, HD onboard graphics and fast work memory reduce the power loss by one third as compared to the previous version and offer 30% higher computing performance and almost three times better graphics performance. Raid hard disk configuration with additional hot spare hard disk and automatic restore in the event of a fault guarantee high system availability and data security.

Up to five monitors/displays can be connected for control centers and multi-monitoring applications. The new industrial PC is particularly suitable for use as a compact workstation or server for the fast acquisition and processing of large data volumes, for example in industrial image processing and process visualization.

The new rack PC Simatic IPC547E is compatible with its predecessor model in terms of installation, interfacing and software. The minimal housing depth of 446 millimeters allows for space-saving installation in 19-inch control cabinets with depths from 500 millimeters. A version with a housing depth of 356 millimeters will be available soon for control cabinets from 400 millimeters. Thanks to the many integrated interfaces, such as DisplayPort V1.2, PCIe 3.0 or USB 3.0, the industrial PC is particularly flexible. For efficient diagnostics, the device features status LEDs on the front for fan, temperature and hard disks in the raid network, as well as diagnostics software included in the scope of supply. The user can utilize the Intel Active Management Technology (Intel AMT 9.0) already integrated in the processors for password-protected remote access, to facilitate remote diagnostics or maintenance, for example.

On request, the rack PC can be supplied with the pre-installed and activated Windows 7 Ultimate (32 and 64-bit) operating system or Windows Server 2008 R2 (64-bit). Versions with Windows 8 (64-bit) are currently in development. Supplementary software packages for control and visualization solutions with server and Scada functionality are available.

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Im Focus: Interference as a new method for cooling quantum devices

Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
