Maximum performance at an attractive price with Intel Core2 Quad processors
The SIMATIC IPC547C is a powerful industrial PC in 19″ design (4U). It is ideally suited to industrial applications demanding maximum PC system performance such as required, for example, in industrial server applications, process visualization, or image processing.
Equipped with powerful and energy-saving Intel Core2 Quad/Duo processors with 64-bit technology, a memory size of up to 8 GB and up to 500 GB serial ATA hard disks, the IPC547C reliably provides high computing performance in 24-hour continuous use at an attractive price. The 7 long expansion slots in PCI/PCI-Express technology allow for the use of powerful expansion cards such as PCIe x16 graphics cards for the connection of two monitors and PCIe x8 (1 lane) for installing a Framegrabber module.
For greater system availability, the IPC547C is equipped with up to three mass storage units in the RAID5 array for maximum data security and performance with optimum use of storage capacity in the hot-swap replaceable frame and also features a redundant power supply (available soon).
The IPC547C is equipped with the following to increase system availability:
*Up to 3 mass storage units in RAID5 network for maximum data security and performance with optimum memory space utilization in a hot-swap removable rack *Comprehensive diagnostics and monitoring options due to LEDs on the front for temperature and fan *Redundant power supply *High data transfer rates and redundancy thanks to two teaming-capable Gigabit Ethernet connections Furthermore, the IPC547C is characterized by *All-metal enclosure in sophisticated industrial design with high electromagnetic compatibility *Increased dust protection and low noise due to fan-controlled pressurized cooling *Maximum computing power without throttling at ambient temperatures from 5 to 40°C
*9 USB 2.0 interfaces, two of which on the front and one internal interface with mechanical interlock. A USB flash drive inserted into the internal interface can be operated in closed devices, e.g. as software dongle, and is thus protected against misuse.
Other advantages at a glance：
■ Full-metal enclosure with high electromagnetic compatibility. ■ Increased dust protection and lower noise due to fan-controlled pressurized cooling. ■ Maximum computing power without throttling at ambient temperatures from 5 to 40 °C. ■ Effective self-diagnostics through front-side status LEDs for fan and temperature. ■ 9 USB 2.0 interfaces, two of which on the front and one internal interface with mechanical interlock. This enables a USB flash drive inserted into the internal interface to be operated in the closed device, e.g. as software dongle.
Increasing system availability by means of a redundant power supply
The SIMATIC IPC547C with redundant power supply provides a reliable solution for increasing system availability in continuous operation duty. If one power supply rack unit fails, the other unit takes over the full load without interruption. Failures are signaled by an LED on the power supply rack unit and as acoustic signal. The power supply rack unit can then be replaced during operation (hot swap). This results in a very high system availability. The separate power ports also permit power supply from separate power networks (e.g. via UPS)
