With just one height unit (1 HU = 44 mm), the C5210
Industrial PC represents a space-saving control alternative without losses to
performance or function. With its compact dimensions of 482,7 x 44 x 493,8 mm
(W x H x D), the flexible 19 inch slide-in IPC is suitable for areas of use
where installation space is tight, such as in building services, for
measurement technology, in control rooms or in laboratories.
The low installation height is made possible with the new Beckhoff CB3054
3.5 inch motherboard. On basis of the GS45 chipset from Intel, the motherboard
combines multi-core technology with a socket in the 3.5 inch form factor and is
equipped with a multitude of on-board interfaces, such as two Gigabit Ethernet
ports, four COM ports and twelve USB ports. A free Mini PCI card slot enables
the integration of further fieldbus interfaces.
The C5210 is equipped with two hard drive removable
frames for 3.5 inch hard disks for RAID systems. Two PCIe module slots are
available for insertion of PCIe modules or for leading out interfaces of the
motherboard ex factory. The standard equipment includes a DVD drive slot;
CD/DVD-ROM or multi DVD drives are available. The 19 inch IPC can be operated
with Windows Embedded Standard, Windows XP, Windows 7 or Windows 2008 Server.

A theme that was reflected in several ways at NPE 2015 was the use of 3D printing to assist in, or improve on, injection molding, as well as improvements in 3D printing materials and processes that are making better functional prototypes and end-use parts.
For many years, it was believed that the strongest biological substance on Earth was spider silk, but new research says aquatic snails produce an even stronger material that could disrupt manufacturing forever.
Most everyone thinks they are ready for an emergency or a disaster. Most everyone is wrong. But engineers are a unique position here as both the designers and beneficiaries of emergency preparedness systems.
