Design and functions

All common interfaces for industrial applications are integrated, even those you would miss when employing an office notebook e.g.

  • 2x fully-featured Ethernet ports with high data throughout (10 / 100 / 1000 Mbit) allow to establish a clean separation of office level and machine level networks

  • 2 USB 2.0 / USB 3.0 interfaces each deliver ≥1 A for stable power supply for external devices, with 1,5 A charging functionality for mobile units in Power-Off (Apple compatible)

  • 2 industrial WLAN antennas, based on WLAN standards 802.11 a, b, g and n permits secure and wireless communication with automation devices. In the IWLAN, the wireless connection to the terminal devices is monitored cyclically and is secure and reliable even in critical situations

  • Bluetooth for synchronization and transmission of data to bluetooth devices, such as PDAs or mobile phones

  • PROFIBUS DP/MPI  interface, as well as SIMATIC Memory Card and Multi Media Card slot

  • S5 interface COM 1 / TTY for SIMATIC S5-AG connection

Security information

To ensure the secure operation of a plant or machine it is also necessary to take suitable preventive action (e.g. cell protection concept) and to integrate the automation and drive components into a state-of-the-art holistic industrial security concept for the entire plant or machine. Any third-party products that may be in use must also be taken into account.
