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 make-your-own Star Wars Sith Lightsaber hilt is heftier and better-looking than most others out there, according to its maker, Sean Charlesworth. You can 3D print it from free source files, and there's even a hardware kit available -- not free -- so you can build one just in time for Halloween.
