The innovated SINUMERIK PCU 50 with the more powerful CPUs (566 MHz and 1.2 GHz) and Windows NT 4.0 have been released.
The innovated PCU 50 with 566 MHz replaces the previous PCU 50 with 333 MHz and the innovated PCU 50 with 1.2 GHz, the previous PCU 50 with 500 MHz. The appropriate mounting brackets for the innovated PCU 50 must be additionally ordered.
If it is required that the innovated PCU 50 is supplied with the HMI Advanced operator control software installed on the PCU hard disk, then after the Order No. for the PCU 50, the Order No. for the HMI Advanced software should be specified.
The changeover to the new PCU 50 for SINUMERIK 810D/840D should have been completed by the end of November 2002. From December 2002, for SINUMERIK 810D/840D, generally, only the new PCU 50 with 566 MHz or 1.2 GHz with Windows NT will be available.
With the innovated SINUMERIK PCU 50 with higher performance CPUs, there is now an additional USB connection. The additional USB connection will only be able to be used with Windows XP. The additional technical data essentially correspond to the previous components.
