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: Data use draining your battery? Tiny device to speed up memory while also saving power

The more objects we make "smart," from watches to entire buildings, the greater the need for these devices to store and retrieve massive amounts of data quickly without consuming too much power.

Millions of new memory cells could be part of a computer chip and provide that speed and energy savings, thanks to the discovery of a previously unobserved...

Im Focus: An energy-efficient way to stay warm: Sew high-tech heating patches to your clothes

Personal patches could reduce energy waste in buildings, Rutgers-led study says

What if, instead of turning up the thermostat, you could warm up with high-tech, flexible patches sewn into your clothes - while significantly reducing your...

Im Focus: Lethal combination: Drug cocktail turns off the juice to cancer cells

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.

The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...

Im Focus: New Foldable Drone Flies through Narrow Holes in Rescue Missions

A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.

Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...

Im Focus: Topological material switched off and on for the first time

Key advance for future topological transistors

Over the last decade, there has been much excitement about the discovery, recognised by the Nobel Prize in Physics only two years ago, that there are two types...
