Multi Core processor technology

Due to the use of two processor cores with hyper-threading, the Core i or Xeon processors are ideally suited to multi-thread application programs and multitasking. Several demanding applications – such as visualization applications with demanding graphics or programs executing extensive calculations – can be executed at the same time to enhance the response time of the system. Thanks to energy-optimized Multi Core technology and outstanding energy-saving properties, the Intel Core i processors operate without any loss of performance even at increased temperatures up to 50 °C in demanding applications.

The SIMATIC IPC647D is preconfigured for Multi Core technology with Intel Core i / Xeon processors and Microsoft operating systems, and offers higher performance and improved multitasking in industrial environments.

Multi-display technology

The multi-display architecture with its modern functions for desktop and application management supports working with several screens and therefore considerably enhances productivity. The SIMATIC IPC647D is equipped with an optional dual-head graphics card (PCI Express x16) making it ideal for industrial multi-display environments. The following multi-display modes are supported: Native DualView, Span or Big Desktop, Clone.

Connection options: 2 x VGA or 2 x DVI-D

Additionally, on the SIMATIC IPC647D you can use the three already existing onboard graphics interfaces in combination with the optional dual-head graphics card enabling operation with up to five monitors.

Monitoring functions

Integrated monitoring functions (program execution (watchdog), temperature, fan speed and hard disk status in RAID configuration). Expanded diagnostics/messages via Ethernet, e-mail, text message and for direct transfer to SIMATIC software via OPC (optionally via SIMATIC IPC 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 PCs
  • RAID1 (RAID controller onboard) for automatic data mirroring on two SATA hard disks
AMT functionality (Intel Active Management Technology)

This feature allows remote access to the IPC for diagnostics and troubleshooting (service work) even with the operating system shut down:

  • controlled startup/shutdown of the IPC
  • Access to BIOS settings and BIOS update
  • Measures by means of remote access in the event of a fault, e.g. reboot
  • Software updates from integrated ISO image
RAID functionality

RAID1 (mirroring) for automatic data mirroring on two SAS or SATA hard disks.
Hardware Raid controller (PCIe x8) (optional):

  • Auto-Rebuild when changing hard disks
  • Fast rebuild to restore safe state again as quickly as possible
  • Higher system performance by offloading the processor during the rebuild
  • Zero-Maintenance Cache Protection: Protection of the data in the controller cache during power failures


Integral interfaces:

  • Ethernet
    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 optional PROFINET interface can be used for connecting distributed field devices or for controlling drives.
