Industrial box PC
B&R's new box PC, the Automation PC 910 comes with the newest third generation Intel Core i5 and Core i7 CPUs with up to four cores combined with the brand new QM77 Express chipset.
As with previous Automation PC models, the user is able to mix and match CPU performance with different sized main units as needed. For example a quadcore CPU can be used in a single-slot housing, or a single core Celeron can be used in a five-slot housing. This gives users the freedom they need to achieve their own ideal price advantages.
All aspects of the PC infrastructure have been streamlined for computing performance and optimal data throughput. The Automation PC 910 now has a serial ATA-based CFast card to replace the previously used CompactFlash. The company has combined compact, CFast-based removable media with standard PC solid state drives and hard disks in their latest industrial PC. These devices are well-equipped when it comes to interface options: two ports for Gigabit Ethernet, one serial and one modular serial port such as RS485 or CAN together with USB 3.0 ports round off the extensive capabilities of the Automation PC 910.
