SIMATIC PC – More Industrial PC
Automation solutions in industrial environments make high demands on the PCs: vibration, cold, dust, heat, and electromagnetic radiation count among the primary risk factors. Here, PC platforms are sought after that can do more than others.
For over 22 years, Siemens has been developing and manufacturing rugged industrial PCs. In doing so, the declared goal is to provide users with innovative and at the same time long-term available products. Consequently, machine and plant constructors profit from the excellent technological know-how that is reflected in the products. SIMATIC PCs are optimally equipped for the use in harsh industrial environments thanks to: modern industrial design with more ruggedness and system availability, reliable industrial PCs with more quality and safety, more continuity and long-term availability, as well as more service and support.
With onboard PROFINET, the SIMATIC PCs offer even more networking options – they can easily and conveniently are integrated into networks, and enable a continuous, real-time capable communication from the enterprise management level down to the field level. With it, real-time and IT communication, such as TCP/IP, are possible at the same time over one cable – and you realize cost savings during the installation and integration. Various industrial PC form factors, functionalities, and performance classes are available:
SIMATIC Rack PC – flexible and powerful in 19” rack-mount size
SIMATIC Rack PCs are flexible industrial PC systems in 19” rack-mount size with high system availability for demanding high-performance applications. They are individually put together to create the right system by selecting from among different processors, memory capacities, drive configurations, add-on cards, and preinstalled operating systems. Suitable for the horizontal and vertical installation, varied tasks can be solved with them.
SIMATIC Box PC – compact, rugged, and all-purpose
With SIMATIC Box PCs, especially compact and rugged industrial PC systems are available to machine, plant, and control cabinet constructors – for powerful and at the same time space-optimized applications. They distinguish themselves by their high performance on a small footprint, as well as by their modular design providing ease of servicing. From the ultra-compact and maintenance-free model for top-hat rail mounting, up to the PC with high expandability and highest performance, the compact Box PCs leave hardly anything to be desired. With the SIMATIC Box PCs, the most varied tasks can be solved.
SIMATIC Panel PC – rugged and powerful with high-contrast displays
SIMATIC Panel PCs have their strong points in the machine-oriented operation and monitoring, and as powerful industrial PCs are open to additional tasks: controlling, regulating, data processing, and motion control to name just a few. Thanks to their rugged construction, SIMATIC Panel PCs are optimally suited for production processes in harsh industrial environments. The rugged fronts are equipped with bright displays in sizes up to 19”, and feature keypad or touchscreen functionality.
