SIMATIC IPC647E is a rugged and high-performance industrial PC in a 19" design (2U). With the latest Intel processor architecture of the 8th generation (Xeon, Core i7, Core i5 and Core i3), it offers the most powerful PC technology in a newly developed industrial design. In addition, the advanced housing design of the IPC647E is compatible for mounting with its predecessors.
Siemens recently introduced an artificial intelligence (AI) module to the market: the S7-1500 TM NPU (Neural Processing Unit). This module contains the Intel Movidius Myriad X Vision processing unit, which enables the efficient processing of neural network structures and the use of machine learning algorithms. The installed VPU, Intel's new Myriad X VPU chip, is the first in its class to have a dedicated hardware accelerator for deep neural network structures.
For controlling heating elements up to 20 A at voltages of 45 V, 70 V, 110 V and in 230/277 V or 400/480 V networks. Exceptionally space-saving and cost-optimized heating solution with different output and I/O modules as well as racks. The modular, compact and particularly space-saving IO system HCS4200 can be adapted flexibly to the respective industrial heating application
The SIMATIC Automation Tool (SAT) Software Development Kit (SDK) enables users to create an application using the SIMATIC Automation Tool Application Programming Interface (API) as a separate installation setup. Custom applications, including the respective API softwares, can be distributed to third parties in order to perform a variety of device automation tasks efficiently.
The Industrial Web Panels (IWP) are the ideal solution for displaying web-based HTML5 visualizations. The panels are avaliable in mutliple sizes (7"/9"/12") with an integrated HTML5 browser, currently running Chromium v66. Mulitple devices can be utilized to connect to the same server to display configured HTML5 pages.
The TP700 Comfort INOX Projected Capacitive Touch (PCT) panel is designed to meet the challenging requirements arising in the food and pharmaceutical industry. Designed with a glass front and high degree of protection (IP69K) for use in areas where high-preassure washers are used.
SIMATIC IFP Basic are touch monitors suitable for industrial use with a brilliant TFT (Thin Film Transistor) display which can be connected to all SIMATIC IPCs as well as almost all generally available PCs. The SIMATIC IFP Basic product line complements the range of low-cost industrial touch monitors in the SIMATIC IFP product family.
Thanks to its dual socket mainboard with INTEL® XEON™ E5 processors, up to 2TB DDR4 RAM and high-performance graphics cards and GPUs, the SIMATIC IPC1047 meets the highest requirements. With its six PCIe slots (x8 and x16) and the powerful power supply unit, this rack PC can be flexibly used for many different applications.
The compact SIMATIC IPC627E is one of the first industrial PCs on the market that is equipped with the latest Intel Core processors of the 8th generation (also known as "Coffee Lake"). It therefore stands out with its high performance in hard industrial use. With its powerful processors, new mass storage media and a memory capacity of up to 64 GB, the IPC627E is ideal for fast processing of large amounts of data and demanding visualization solutions at ambient temperatures of up to 55 °C.
With the latest Intel processor architecture of the 8th generation (Xeon, Core i7, Core i5 and Core i3), SIMATIC IPC847E offers the most powerful PC technology in a newly developed industrial design. Rugged and extremely expandable with up to 11 slots, SIMATIC IPC847E offers high investment protection thanks to its outstanding long-term availability.
The SIMATIC Notifier app impresses with its simple integration into plants, production lines and machines as well as its fast and user-friendly web-based configuration within the Notifier Server. Detect – React – Profit. Transform your smartwatch into a messaging service for production: Depending on the configuration, it will allow you to receive important notifications from your plant automatically.
Siemens offers to our customers the ability to both make process measurements and to remotely monitor the activity and health of that instrumentation without the need for SCADA systems or other expensive process control room products.
Besides the hardware, the operating system is the core component of a computer. It can contain application programs or only provide the necessary resources to the applications. Depending on the requirements regarding these applications, a highly compact operating system might be sufficient. Possibly even without a graphical user interface.
Whereas mechanical adjustment of sensors and actuators used to be necessary, IO Link now allows parameters for the production and processing of different product variants and batches to be easily changed, even during runtime of the CPU and down to the sensor/actuator level.
SINUMERIK Edge is a platform to run applications for data acquisition, pre-processing and analysis directly at the CNC machine. The platform contains dedicated pre-installed hardware with the SINUMERIK Edge operating system and MindSphere cloud applications.
