Beckhoff Automation: Ultra-compact industrial PC
Beckhoff’s C6915 series IPCs feature Intel® Atom™ processors that provide up to 1.6 GHz processing power and reduced energy consumption.
The C6915 measures just 47 x 157 x 116 mm/1.9 x 6.1 x 4.6 in. (W x H x D). Because of the low processor power dissipation of Atom™ processors, Beckhoff’s Industrial PCs are more compact and moderately priced. With two independent Ethernet interfaces, the C6915 is suitable as a compact central processing unit for an EtherCAT® control system. The aluminum housing is equipped with a 3 1⁄2-in. Beckhoff motherboard for 1.1 GHz or 1.6 GHz Intel® Atom™ processors. Passive cooling is achieved through the PC’s aluminum surface and enables operation at temperatures up to 55 °C (131 °F). The C6915 features a flash disk, resulting in a controller with no moving parts that requires no fan. Optionally, a hard disk or a second Compact Flash card can be integrated.
