Base camp for digital dimensions: SIMATIC Basic IPCsThe Basic series is an easy introduction to the world of SIMATIC industrial PCs and industrial digitalization. If you’re looking for a straightforward solution for price-sensitive industrial applications, you can’t go wrong with the new generation of attractive SIMATIC Basic IPCs.
These basics are essential in every industry
When deployed in industrial and industry-related environments, conventional office PCs soon reach their limits when it comes to dealing with dust, increased temperatures, vibration, impact, EMC requirements, and 24/7 continuous operation. That’s where SIMATIC Basic IPCs deliver the perfect solution for many standard applications. Not only do they easily meet the stricter requirements, they also provide the latest PC technology at an attractive price and are quickly available from stock. They offer you a strong, solid foundation for successfully exploring digital dimensions and meeting challenges like visualization and SCADA tasks, data acquisition and management, and measurement and testing tasks – quickly and easily and without lots of effort.
Three good reasons to choose SIMATIC Basic IPCs

Basics for industrial useWhether it’s for discrete manufacturing, process automation, logistics, or laboratory automation, SIMATIC Basic IPCs are the perfect choice for many application areas and digital tasks in industrial and industry-related environments. Explore the use cases where the Basic versions of our Industrial PCs provide superior services thanks to their high performance in 24-hour continuous operation.
Smart digital assembly workstation and test stand
The robust and durable SIMATIC Basic IPCs are suitable, for example, for equipping smart industrial workstations where products made from a few individual parts are assembled or screwed together either manually or semi-automatically and are then inspected and documented as part of quality control.
- One system for guidance, verification, testing, confirmation, and documentation
- All the necessary components and tools can be connected directly without hardware thanks to the variety of available interfaces
- Much greater reliability and a longer lifecycle compared with the office PCs previously used thanks to the fan-less design and robustness of the SIMATIC Panel IPCs Basic
Order picking of materials, parts, and products
Whether it’s work materials for maintenance jobs, individual parts for a processing step, or products for complete deliveries, SIMATIC Basic IPCs make it easy to digitalize order picking. Orders can be displayed and checked off on a monitor that’s connected to a Basic IPC for data processing. The IPC forwards the data to a central server for inventory and makes it possible to trigger a printer to output the parts list that will be attached to the finished picking unit.
To digitalize a car wash, a SIMATIC Basic IPC can be seamlessly connected to the automatic machine that executes the wash program – whether this involves output of a receipt with a QR code or input and temporary storage of vehicle license plates. After the QR code is scanned or the license plate captured by the camera, the wash program is activated by the IPC. The completed program can also be displayed on a second monitor at the exit.
- One system for program selection, coordination, code scanning, program display, and license plate capture, storage, and deletion
- All the necessary components can be connected directly thanks to the variety of available interfaces: database server via Ethernet/LAN, scanner and camera system via USB port, second monitor via Ethernet/LAN.
Entrance gate with sign-in data
When automatic sign-in systems with a SIMATIC Basic IPC are used instead of labor-intensive monitoring by staff, members or customers experience much shorter wait times at entrances. If membership cards are used to access facilities, in addition to a card scanner at the turnstile, a second scanner can be installed for 3G/2G verification and connected to a SIMATIC Basic IPC for data synchronization and release of the turnstile.
Self-service check-in terminals at the airport
At a self-serve check-in terminal, passengers can enter their data in a SIMATIC Basic Panel PC. This data is then compared to a database of actual flights booked. A conveyor belt transports baggage to the scale for weighing and then returns it to the passenger. If a bag’s weight is within the maximum limit, the printer outputs a baggage label that’s attached to the bag. The labeled bag is then automatically transported to the right baggage storage area via a conveyor belt. If the maximum weight is exceeded, the bag must be re-weighed. Once check-in is successfully completed, the passenger’s boarding pass is printed out.
Basic technical detailsSIMATIC Basic IPCs provide a solid foundation for industrial digitalization, not just thanks to their robustness, their attractive price/performance ratio, and their availability from stock but also because of their specific technical features. Discover what the latest generation can offer you.
In order to protect plants, systems, machines and networks against cyber threats, it is necessary to implement – and continuously maintain – a holistic, state-of-the-art industrial security concept. Siemens’ products and solutions only form one element of such a concept. For more information about industrial security, please visit.
