Industrial rack PC for the low price segment

19.11.2015

SPS IPC Drives 2015, Hall 11

  • New industry-standard entry level Simatic IPC347E rack PC
  • Five powerful configurations for use in industrial environments – from production to logistics.
  • Rugged, reliable and easy to service in continuous 24 hour use

Siemens has expanded its industry-standard 19-inch rack PC lines to include the Simatic IPC347E entry level version. There are five configurations of the new Simatic IPC347E rack PC that differ in their main memory structure, processor type, drives and optionally pre-installed operating system.

It is especially suitable for production applications requiring a PC with greater ruggedness and a higher availability than office PCs. These include visualization and Scada tasks, data collection and management, testing and measuring tasks in discrete production and process automation, as well as logistics and laboratory automation applications.

The new Simatic IPC347E rack PCs have seven PCI(e) expansion slots for easy expansion and integration into existing systems, and a 500 gigabyte hard disk, and 2 or 4 GB RAM, which can be expanded to 16 GB.

Users can select the process performance with either an Intel Pentium or fourth generation Core i5 processor; other options include an ± R/RW DVD drive, and pre-installed 64 bit Windows 7 Ultimate operating system. The rugged, industry-standard rack PCs have a dust protection filter and overpressure ventilation. They are especially easy to service because of their front USB (Universal Serial Bus) port and the externally accessible fan.

Like the more powerful rack PCs in the Simatic family of industrial PCs, the new entry level Simatic IPC347E model is designed for reliable continuous 24-hour use in industrial environments – even those that have higher temperature, vibration, shock and EMC requirements. Reliable continuous operation of all devices without power loss at an ambient temperature of up to 40 degrees Celsius is ensured by run-in tests and confirmed by industrial certificates.

The portfolio of Simatic industrial PCs comprises scalable product lines of box, panel and rack PCs, supplemented by additional versions for special applications.

Im Focus: Spider silk key to new bone-fixing composite

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.

Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.

Im Focus: Gamma-ray flashes from plasma filaments

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.

The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...

Im Focus: Basel researchers succeed in cultivating cartilage from stem cells

Stable joint cartilage can be produced from adult stem cells originating from bone marrow. This is made possible by inducing specific molecular processes occurring during embryonic cartilage formation, as researchers from the University and University Hospital of Basel report in the scientific journal PNAS.

Certain mesenchymal stem/stromal cells from the bone marrow of adults are considered extremely promising for skeletal tissue regeneration. These adult stem...
