Short description:

The IPC-4 is an industrial PC with up to 2.16 GHz CPU power for different tasks in the automation industry like control of assembly lines.

Scalable performance
We will offer you advice concerning the clock rates that vary between 600 MHz with an Intel Celeron M and 2 × 2,16 GHz with an Intel Core 2 Duo. There is also energy-efficient ATOM technology available. You can have up to 4 GByte DDR RAM built in for complex and resource-consuming tasks.

Rough environments …
The IPC-4 uses SATA HDDs that are cleared for 24/7 operations. We are happy to switch to industrial temperature ranges for you. It is also possible to have devices with not rotating parts like Solid State Disks (SSD) which will guarantee you highest process reliability even in very rough environments.

Many interfaces in a compact design
The IPC-4 offers 6 × USB 2.0, 2 × Gigabit Ethernet (10 / 100 / 1000 BaseT), 2 serial interfaces, a DVI and a VGA slot.

Additionally, there is a CF slot implemented. You will note that the device facilitates a clear arrangement of cabling with all interfaces being allocated at the front cover. The side parts are reserved for cooling fans and heat exhaust. Little cooling fins add up to controlling any heat.

Left side = standard, right side = flexible
Probably the most important advantage of the IPC-4 is its modular design that is suited for customer-specific extensions. PCI104 and pC104+ cards are up to most individual requirements like CAN, FireWire, digital and analogue inputs and outputs, Frame grabber and many more functions.

32 KB battery-buffered ZERO-RAM
The IPC will save runtime variables in this RAM memory for you in order to keep them in a case of a loss of power.
