The fan-free embedded Microbox PC SIMATIC IPC427E provides machine, plant, and control cabinet builders with a compact PC platform for use at the machine or process level. The scope of application ranges from complex control tasks (including in high-level languages) and visualization solutions to production-level data acquisition and analysis.

Thanks to its low mounting depth and different mounting possibilities, it can be installed in a variety of conditions, including tight installation spaces. All interfaces on one side -> simple wiring + expansion – easy integration in existing plants.
