Industrial PC with the latest processors tuned for high performance


The Siemens Industry Automation division has simultaneously equipped four new industrial
PCs – designed for tough industrial environments – with the powerful Intel Core i7
processor. The compact Simatic IPC627C box PC and the Simatic HMI IPC677C panel PC
are suitable for high-speed measurement, open and closed-loop control tasks, as well as for
HMI functions directly at machine level. The robust 19“ series of devices includes the
Simatic IPC847C rack PC, which is four units high and has extensive expansion options,
and the compact Simatic IPC647C rack PC, which is two units high, both of which are
suitable for processing large volumes of data, for example in measurement systems, in test
bays or for industrial image processing. All the new PCs are designed for continuous 24-
hour service, even when subjected to high temperatures, vibrations, impact and
electromagnetic interference.


The new Siemens devices are the first industrial PCs in box, rack and panel PC designs available
on the market that support the mobile Core i3 to Core i7 types of processor (including error
correcting code = ECC). Compared to the previous models of the B-generation, the C-generation
devices offer almost twice the computing performance, depending on their equipment level. The
DirectX 10 onboard graphics and the DDR3 memory technology integrated in the CPU, optionally
with integrated ECC, ensure particularly fast system reaction times even in the most demanding
automation applications. To ensure low power consumption and high energy efficiency, the C-
generation devices feature the latest mobile technology and efficiency power supply units with an
efficiency of more than 80 percent. Further energy savings can be achieved by using the wake-on-
LAN functionality and, in the panel PC version, a display that can be switched off.


All new devices are compatible with the previous models in terms of installation, interfaces and
software and feature an onboard communication interface via the optional Profibus or Profinet
interface with 3-port IRT switch.

Maximum flexibility in the choice of bulk storage device is offered by the Simatic IPC627C and
Simatic HMI IPC677C with solid state drive (SSD), hard disks with or without RAID1 mirror disk
system, and CompactFlash (CF). Both devices have two free PCI/PCI Express expansion slots
and one slot for CF cards. The Panel PC version is available with 12“, 15“ and 19“ touch displays
as well as 12” and 15” touch panels. For use in the food and beverages sector, a specially
designed stainless steel front panel with a 15“ touch display is available. The Box PC version can
be wall or rack-mounted in a wide variety of positions.


The new Simatic IPC847C rack PC offers extensive expansion options with up to eleven PCI/PCI-
Express slots. A redundant power supply unit and RAID1 or RAID5 hard disk system in the hot-
swap frame, which enables the hard disks to be replaced during operation, or solid state drive,
guarantees high system availability and data security. The IPC847C is also available with an
optional tower kit for use as an industrial workstation or server in control rooms in the production
and processing industry. The compact Simatic IPC647C rack PC offers identical processing
performance to the IPC847C but is only half the height. With three PCI/PCI-Express slots, the
IPC647C offers sufficient options for any expansions. Both rack PCs can optionally be equipped
with a 32 GB solid state drive as a robust bulk storage device and have two COM, one LPT and
two PS/2 and audio interfaces. The rack PCs are also fitted with an internal USB interface which is
secured against unauthorized removal, which can accommodate a software dongle, for example.
For dual monitoring a PCI-Express x16 graphics card is available.


The industrial PCs are available with new energy-saving mobile processor versions Intel Core i3
(2.13 Gigahertz) to Core i7 (2.53 Gigahertz). The RAM is expandable up to 8 GB in both rack PCs
and up to 4 GB in the IPC627C and HMI IPC677C. All versions are equipped with a DVI interface
(VGA via optional adapter) and with two 10/100/1000 Mbit/s Ethernet ports with teaming capability.
Further options include the preinstalled and activated Windows 7 Ultimate and Windows XP
Professional operating systems and, for the IPC627C/677C, also Windows Embedded Standard
2009. Windows Server 2008 Standard is available for the IPC647C/847C and HMI IPC677C
versions.
