New Nanobox and Nanopanel PCs concentrate high performance in the smallest space

08.04.2015

Siemens at the Hannover Messe 2015, Hall 9, Booth D35

  • Latest Intel dual and quad-core processors for extra high performance
  • Maintenance-free, rugged design for uninterrupted duty in an ambient temperature of up to 50 degrees Celsius
  • Can be mounted in a control cabinet or directly in a machine

With the Nanobox PC Simatic IPC227E and Nanopanel PC Simatic IPC277E, Siemens is presenting a new generation of especially compact, rugged devices for industrial use. The Simatic IPC227E Box PC is available with or without a PCIe slot. The Simatic IPC277E is a Panel PC equipped with 7 to 19 inch, wide-format touch displays. Intel dual and quad-core Celeron processors deliver high performance in a compact design. The enclosure of the smallest version of the device has a volume of just one liter.

With this sealed, all-metal enclosure, fanless operation and an optional non-volatile retentive memory, these new industrial PCs are designed for maintenance-free, uninterrupted duty in severe ambient temperatures of up to 50 degrees Celsius. Three different mounting versions enable these ultra-compact devices to be installed in even small control boxes. All versions are equipped with serial RS 232/RS 422/RS 485, USB, Industrial Ethernet and DisplayPort interfaces so they can be quickly and easily integrated into automation solutions. As the entry-level class of industrial PCs from Siemens, the Nanobox and Nanopanel PCs are suitable not only for control, visualization and communication tasks but also for use as data collectors in mechanical engineering, building automation, traffic control and energy transmission.

The new, fanless Nanobox PC Simatic IPC227E and Nanopanel PC IPC277E with an integrated 24 V industrial power supply can be optionally operated without a battery, and are designed for maintenance-free, 24-hour uninterrupted duty, even under severe temperature, vibration and shock conditions, and strict EMC requirements. A rugged mass storage system with a solid-state drive (SSD) of 80 gigabytes or more, and CFast Drives up to 16 GB, as well as an (optional) 512 kilobyte, non-volatile retentive memory ensure a high degree of data security. The devices have pre-installed diagnostic software for device diagnostics, and the Nanobox PCs also have four status LEDs. The Nanopanel PC Simatic IPC277E is equipped with a 7, 9, 12, 15 or 19 inch, high-resolution, wide-format industrial touch display with a wide viewing angle. The background lighting is up to 100 percent dimmable, which not only reduces the power consumption considerably but also lengthens the service life significantly.

These long-term availability industrial PCs can be configured online, and are supplied with a pre-installed, activated Windows Embedded Standard 7-E or 7-P operating system, Windows 7 Ultimate Multilanguage, and suited-for-Linux or VxWork-tested certification. Ready-to-use bundles of computers and software make commissioning quick.

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
