BMW standardises globally on industrial PCs and control panels

19 November 2019

Beckhoff Automation will supply the BMW Group with Industrial PC (IPC) technology for use in car manufacturing through 2030 for its production facilities worldwide.

This means that Beckhoff IPC technology will become a global standard for the BMW Group. The Industrial PCs and multi-touch control panels will be used – both in new automotive manufacturing facilities and for retrofits – for machine connectivity, access control, data acquisition, visualisation and other PC-based tasks. 

All product categories from Beckhoff’s industrial PC portfolio will be used – IP65-rated CP32xx Panel PCs, C6030 ultra-compact IPCs, C5240 19in slide-in IPCs and CP29xx multi-touch built-in control panels.

Standard Beckhoff products will be used that have been adapted to some extent to ensure optimum retrofitting in existing plants and to include customer-specific key extensions. The comprehensive Beckhoff product portfolio offers the BMW Group the ability to use the latest Intel Core i processor series in a wide range of IPC form factors. On account of the rapid innovation cycles and interoperability within the portfolio, upcoming processor generations will be simple to integrate in the future as well.
