In the past few years, due to the rapid development of PC technology, the creation of a new embedded PC series has also become possible. Here, technology is used to enhance the robustness of these devices to a new level.
Due to the new, low-power processors into a reasonable housing design, modern embedded PCs no longer require fans. Moreover, the rotating mass storage unit is no longer used as a regular hard disk, but is replaced by a flash memory card. Very simple, powerful and rugged embedded automation systems can be used at the machine level and can be produced using PLC software, visualization software and technical or motion control functions based on a compact embedded operating system (XPE). In the relevant versions, SIMATIC embedded automation can further benefit customers by pre-installing logical control and visualization capabilities. This ensures that you can save time during the design/commissioning of your application. Technical and Transmission control functions will also be added in the future.
