The Microbox PC SIMATIC IPC427C is the powerful embedded industrial PC for DIN rail mounting, wall mounting, or portrait assembly. It is ideally suited for the space-saving implementation of highspeed I&C, HMI and communication tasks, e.g. direct at the machine or on ships. The IPC427C is available as an embedded PC-System with pre-installed Software PLC WinAC RTX and/or visualization software WinCC flexible .
For high performance and robustness in maintenance-free continuous operation 24 hours a day at ambient temperatures of up to 55 °C, it is equipped with:
Intel processors up to Core2 Duo
DDR3 memory technology up to 4 GB
Integrated Intel GMAX4500 Graphics Media Accelerator
Intel high-performance SATA solid-state drive SSD type "Extreme" (32 GB) and CF cards as reliable, robust replacements for hard disks
Three PCI-104 expansion slots and a multitude of interfaces make the Microbox IPC427C universally applicable:
Two Gigabit Ethernet connections (teaming-capable) for flexible communication with the control and field levels.
Four USB 2.0 interfaces and an optional PROFIBUS connection or PROFINET interface with three ports for a high degree of adaptability and flexibility for measuring, open-loop and closed-loop control tasks.
Its components such as PCI-104 modules (optional), battery, RAM or CompactFlash card can easily be replaced when installed.
It offers increased system availability through:
Integrated monitoring functions for mass storage, battery, temperature and program execution
Front-side LED solution for efficient self-diagnostics, e.g. for the status display of critical operating states
Integrated power supply with electrical isolation and mains failure bridging.
Process data can be reliably saved in the event of a power failure thanks to a battery-buffered SRAM.
The SIMATIC IPC427C can be easily and flexibly expanded with a central I/O.
Together with the SIMATIC IPC427C there are starter packages available which offer a considerable price advantage. (see link on the right)
