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.
As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
The government wants to study your brain, and DARPA wants to use similar information to give robots true autonomy beyond any artificial intelligence developed to date. Sound like science fiction? It's not.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
