Beckhoff Improves 19-inch Industrial PCs

3/25/2003 - Beckhoff has improved the successful 19-inch Industrial PC series for installation in cabinets. The new C51xx series are popular because of high computing capacity and the range of communication interfaces that are available. The new, optimised housing makes the computer not only extremely practical, but also less expensive compared with the previous models.

The new 19-inch C5101 and C5102 rack mount Industrial PCs define added value for Beckhoff. These competitively priced computers are mounted in a newly designed housing measuring only 4 height units. The advantages include: A simple but attractive housing with the dimensions of 438 mm x 177 mm x 500 mm. In addition to the hard disk, three bays are available for 5 inch drives such as CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD-ROM or DVD-RAM, or for additional hard disks. The clearly visible type plate shows the configuration details of the PC at a glance. All the information, for example about the drives, such as manufacturer and type, as well as information about the connection type, can be found here.

The new C51xx has improved ventilation technology that prevents any dust from penetrating the unit. This is accomplish through a slight overpressure inside the IP 60 PC housing. A robust card locating clip protects the electronic cards against impact and vibrations. The new housing is designed for long-term compatibility with all new PC components over the coming years. The lockable front door, behind which the four drive slots are located, provides added security.

The computing power can be expanded as required with anything the high-end PC market has to offer. The rack mount IPC C5101 is equipped with Intel Celeron or Intel Pentium III on a slot motherboard. The C5102 variant is equipped with a standard ATX motherboard and can additionally be equipped with a Pentium 4 processor. The 19 inch rack mount IPCs thus offer controls with maximum performance.
