Scalable control cabinet IPC for automation projects

03 December 2013

Kontron has launched a new control cabinet IPC product family for automation applications.

The new KBox IPCs are designed for industrial control applications, offering scalability from entry to high-end level. All four new systems feature an industrial-grade design for common control cabinet installations, are available long-term and can be fitted with industrial I/Os, fieldbuses and/or Industrial Ethernet interfaces. 

The modular construction of the units, using Kontron standard components, makes the IPCs scalable to meet individual design requirements.

Commenting on the on the customer benefits of the new product family, Norbert Hauser, head of business line Industrial Automation, said: "Industrial box PCs in automation applications carry out a wide range of tasks. In the majority of cases, however, they are installed in control cabinets and in machine and plant components. Kontron has always supplied a wide range of products for these installation scenarios. Under the KBox brand, we are now bundling our control cabinet IPC product portfolio in order to achieve a uniform industrial box PC identity and look and feel. We are also extending the family to specifically target automation applications. This will further strengthen our position as one of the world's leading industrial PC manufacturers."
