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: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
