The SIMATIC IPC427E provides machine, plant and control cabinet builders with a high-performance, compact PC platform for use at machine or process level, or in the industrial environment for:

  • Measuring and checking, open-loop and closed-loop control of process and machine data
  • Acquisition, further processing and visualization of data
  • All applications at the machine level – created in C/C++ or with software controller/WinCC RT Advanced – which require rugged, ultra-compact IPCs with high computing power
  • Additional new applications such as shipbuilding, building automation, water treatment

The application spectrum ranges from automation computers fully integrated in TIA with CPU 1500S software controllers, for example, to C/C++-based automation solutions with VxWorks, for example, and “standalone” applications for general IT applications.
For software products that require Windows 7 Ultimate, the combination of Windows 7 Ultimate is available preinstalled on the hard disk or SSD.

The SIMATIC IPC427E has the CE mark for use in industrial applications as well as in domestic, business and commercial environments. It can therefore also be used in building automation systems or in public facilities. The device also has the most important marine approvals.

Due to the fan-free design and use of SIMATIC PC CFast memories or SSDs there are no rotating parts, which increases system availability.

The SIMATIC PC can be ordered in conjunction with WinCC SCADA or WinCC (Advanced, Professional) as SIMATIC HMI packages with a price advantage.


  • Integrated, parameterizable monitoring functions (program execution/watchdog, processor and board temperature)
  • Expanded diagnostics/messages via Ethernet, e-mail, SMS and for direct transfer to SIMATIC software via OPC (optionally via SIMATIC PC DiagMonitor)
    • Operating hours counter
    • Hard disk status
    • System status (heartbeat)
    • Automatic logging of all messages to a log file
    • Capability for central monitoring of networked SIMATIC IPC

    The two integrated Gigabit Ethernet interfaces (10/100/1000 Mbit/s) can be used for IT communication and for data exchange with programmable controllers such as SIMATIC S7 (with the “SOFTNET S7” software package).
    The optional floating PROFIBUS interface (12 Mbit/s) can be used to connect distributed field devices or for coupling to the SIMATIC S7 (with the “SOFTNET for PROFIBUS” software package).
    The PROFINET interface can be used for connecting distributed field devices or for controlling drives.
  • Further interfaces
    Up to two free slots for PCIe modules, 4 high-speed USB V3.0 interfaces, and two serial interfaces are available for connecting additional I/O devices.
