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


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: Space observation with radar to secure Germany's space infrastructure

Satellites in near-Earth orbit are at risk due to the steady increase in space debris. But their mission in the areas of telecommunications, navigation or weather forecasts is essential for society. Fraunhofer FHR therefore develops radar-based systems which allow the detection, tracking and cataloging of even the smallest particles of debris. Satellite operators who have access to our data are in a better position to plan evasive maneuvers and prevent destructive collisions. From April, 25-29 2018, Fraunhofer FHR and its partners will exhibit the complementary radar systems TIRA and GESTRA as well as the latest radar techniques for space observation across three stands at the ILA Berlin.

The "traffic situation" in space is very tense: the Earth is currently being orbited not only by countless satellites but also by a large volume of space...

Im Focus: Researchers Discover New Anti-Cancer Protein

An international team of researchers has discovered a new anti-cancer protein. The protein, called LHPP, prevents the uncontrolled proliferation of cancer cells in the liver. The researchers led by Prof. Michael N. Hall from the Biozentrum, University of Basel, report in “Nature” that LHPP can also serve as a biomarker for the diagnosis and prognosis of liver cancer.

The incidence of liver cancer, also known as hepatocellular carcinoma, is steadily increasing. In the last twenty years, the number of cases has almost doubled...

Im Focus: Researchers at Fraunhofer monitor re-entry of Chinese space station Tiangong-1

In just a few weeks from now, the Chinese space station Tiangong-1 will re-enter the Earth's atmosphere where it will to a large extent burn up. It is possible that some debris will reach the Earth's surface. Tiangong-1 is orbiting the Earth uncontrolled at a speed of approx. 29,000 km/h.Currently the prognosis relating to the time of impact currently lies within a window of several days. The scientists at Fraunhofer FHR have already been monitoring Tiangong-1 for a number of weeks with their TIRA system, one of the most powerful space observation radars in the world, with a view to supporting the German Space Situational Awareness Center and the ESA with their re-entry forecasts.

Following the loss of radio contact with Tiangong-1 in 2016 and due to the low orbital height, it is now inevitable that the Chinese space station will...

Im Focus: Alliance „OLED Licht Forum“ – Key partner for OLED lighting solutions

Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP, provider of research and development services for OLED lighting solutions, announces the founding of the “OLED Licht Forum” and presents latest OLED design and lighting solutions during light+building, from March 18th – 23rd, 2018 in Frankfurt a.M./Germany, at booth no. F91 in Hall 4.0.

They are united in their passion for OLED (organic light emitting diodes) lighting with all of its unique facets and application possibilities. Thus experts in...

Im Focus: Mars' oceans formed early, possibly aided by massive volcanic eruptions

Oceans formed before Tharsis and evolved together, shaping climate history of Mars

A new scenario seeking to explain how Mars' putative oceans came and went over the last 4 billion years implies that the oceans formed several hundred million...
