An IPC that will always match: With the new Econo 308 Box IPC, Kendrion Kuhnke Automation completes its portfolio and presents a PC platform that boasts more interfaces than any IPC in its class.
In its basic version with 2xLAN, CANopen, RS232 and USB, the new system is ready for a wide range of industrial applications that require vertical and horizontal data exchange. Besides Ethernet based communication to a production control system or other machines, numerous modern fieldbus systems, such as EtherCAT® and CANopen® are available simply via CODESYS V3. Due to an internal miniPCe slot for all kinds of extension boards almost all available PC or industry-specific interfaces can be added. Such features not only turn this system into a highly effective communications expert. Thanks to its modern DisplayPort it is also perfectly suited for the process visualization of machines and manufacturing equipment.
Thanks to its modern processor technology the fanless IPC for the switching board features low energy consumption and minimum space requirements. Two SC-Card slots and an optional hard disc (mSATA-SSD) allow flexible data management. A USV power supply and a remanent memory inside the Box IPC turn it into a robust and universal industrial control unit. On request, the IPC is available as a ready-to-run, individually configured and performance-optimized package with pre-installed software.
