Beckhoff Intros Ultra-Compact Industrial PC
Ultra-compact industrial computer.
Minneapolis, MN — Beckhoff Automation LLC has introduced the new C6930 IPC, suitable for demanding industrial automation applications where compact devices are a must. The new industrial computer includes a 3+-in. motherboard designed for powerful Intel
Duo or Core 2 Duo processors and offers high data security through an integrated RAID system for mirroring hard disks.
The computer also provides a wide range of PC interfaces — up to three Ethernet ports, for EtherCAT
-based controllers and optional fieldbus interfaces for conventional fieldbus systems. The compact system is designed for simple control cabinet installation. An easy-to-replace cooling fan cartridge with speed control and double ball bearing fans enable operation of the PC at temperatures up to 55°C (131°F).
The computer includes an on-board SATA RAID controller for mirroring two hard disks. It can be used for convenient configuration of RAID applications supported by TwinCAT
automation software from Beckhoff. In addition to or instead of the hard drive, a flash disk can be integrated in the form of a Compact Flash card (CF) or a solid-state disk (SSD).
The industrial computer also has two free-plug connector panels to accommodate additional interfaces such as RS-232, sound and two additional USB ports. Optional fieldbus interfaces — for DeviceNet, PROFIBUS, CANopen or SERCOS, a third Ethernet port or a NOVRAM memory module for fail-safe storage of process data can be connected via a free Mini PCI slot.
The compact control cabinet PC is suitable for application as a centralized controller in an EtherCAT-based control system. It is equipped with two standard Ethernet ports, and an option for a third port, offering optimum performance for all EtherCAT control tasks.
