Beckhoff Automation: Cabinet-mount IPCs
Beckhoff Automation’s C65xx series Industrial PCs are designed to be installed in control cabinets or in the rear panel of control/console housings.
With TwinCAT® automation software and high performance processors up to Intel Core™2 Duo 2.16 GHz, the C65xx IPC series becomes a powerful “all-in-one” PLC and motion control system. By integrating this IPC into an existing control cabinet housing, the C65xx series permits flexible push-button configurations and extension options within control enclosures. The IPCs within the C65xx series feature an integrated heat sink for external cooling that reaches ambient temperatures through a suitable cut-out in the panel of the control cabinet. Integrated seals provide a water- and dust-proof IP 67 design from the outside. The new C65xx series offers flexible control panel display configuration. The IPC can be chosen independent of the number and type of control keys or switches on the control cabinet front. The C65xx series’ compact, slimline housing with integrated IPC connections at the rear facilitates a flexible number of buttons in the cabinet front panel, depending on the application. Equipped with a 3∏-inch Beckhoff manufactured motherboard, the C65xx Industrial PC series is available with four types of processors.
