Maximum compactness and industrial functionality - with the 4th generation of Intel® processors (Intel Xeon, Core i5 and i3)

The SIMATIC IPC647D is a rugged and extremely compact industrial PC in 19" design (2U). It is particularly suitable for space-saving implementation of fast computing and visualization tasks, e.g. image and data processing or industrial server applications. With a height of only 2 units and a small mounting depth, it optimally utilizes the space in 19" standard control cabinets (from 500 mm).

Despite its high compactness, it can be flexibly scaled and expanded due to four long slots:

  • 4 x PCI-Express

  • 2 x PCI; 2 x PCI-Express

Highlights and Interfaces

RAID in removable frame

  • media title1
  • media title2
  • media title3
  • media title4
  • media title5


    • Maximum performance and extremely fast system response:
      - Intel® processors (Intel Xeon, Core i5 and i3)
      - Powerful onboard HD graphics integrated into the CPU
      - UP to 32 GByte main memory

    • Extremely high system availability and data security due to
      - RAID 1 system with onboard or hardware RAID Controller in hot swap frame
      - Solid-state drive (SSD) with 240 GB (SATA, 2.5")
      - ECC-RAM, work memory with error correction
      - Redundant power supply (hot-swap)

    • Remote access over Intel AMT 9.0

    • Optional PROFIBUS or PROFINET interface with three ports for low-cost connection of distributed field devices or to interfaces with SIMATIC S7
      > More information about networking options with PROFINET onboard

    • High data transmission rates and redundancy thanks to two teaming-capable Gigabit Ethernet connections

    • Multi-monitoring with up to 5 monitors via optional PCI-Express x16 graphics card and onboard graphics

    • DVI/VGA adapter for analog monitor (optional)

    • 3 x Hi-Speed USB 3.0 ports, two of which on the on the rear side and one on the front , e.g. for access protected data storage or a software dongle, additional 3 x USB 2.0 ports

    • Energy-efficient industrial PCs:
      - Low power consumption thanks to the latest Intel technology
      - Wake-on-LAN functionality for timed start-up of the IPCs from a central location via
      a network, e.g. after a weekend without production.

    Special features of SIMATIC IPC647D/847D

    • Rugged and with long-term availability, with identical performance features, the same footprint, and installation, interface and software compatibility.

    • Easy servicing:
      - The front fan can be replaced without tools
      - Only one screw needs to be removed to quickly open the enclosure
      - Hard disks and power supply unit can be replaced during operation.

    • Additional internal USB interface for protection against unauthorized removal, e.g. for a software dongle

    • Front USB interface concept: An inserted USB flash drive can also be operated with the front door closed, e.g. as software dongle, and is thus protected against misuse in the same way as the drives accessible from the front and the On/Off switch or reset button.

    • Front LEDs for efficient self-diagnostics, e.g. for simple identification of a faulty hard disk in the RAID group or temperature and fan status.

    PC options for demanding industrial server applications

    The durable 19-inch industrial PCs SIMATIC IPC647D and 847D are now available with an array of new options for demanding industrial server applications, ensuring improved system performance and availability as well as data security:

    • The PCs benefit from an hardware RAID controller for RAID1/5 configurations with up to 4x 1TB SAS* hard drives in a hot swap frame and an optional 240 GB SSD.

    • Optional hot spare HDD with automatical re-build functionality to increase system availability and reduce service costs *.

    • The redundant power supply and drives in the RAID array can be monitored using SIMATIC IPC DiagMonitor diagnostic software.

    • The 64-bit server operating system Windows Server 2008/2012 R2 or Windows 7 Ultimate (32/64 bit) are available to cope with demanding applications.

    * only for IPC847D

    Security information:

    In order to protect plants, systems, machines and networks against cyber threats, it is necessary to implement – and continuously maintain – a holistic, state-of-the-art industrial security concept. Siemens’ products and solutions only form one element of such a concept. For more information about industrial security, please visit:
