Controller and PC in a compact, powerful package

28 October 2014

The new Automation PC 2100 from B&R allows automation runtime and windows to run at the same time owing to the inclusion of a powerful Intel Atom multi-core processing technology. This allows the Automation PC 2100 to be used simultaneously as an industrial controller and as a PC for sophisticated HMI applications. 

Despite its compact housing, the Automation PC 2100, from B&R offers a full-fledged PC system. Available with single-, dual- or quad-core processors, the computing power of the Automation PC 2100 is fully scalable. At the upper range of performance, it even exceeds the performance of many Core i-series processors, says the company.

The absence of fans or other rotating components means that no maintenance is required. Other standard features include two gigabit Ethernet interfaces as well as one USB 2.0 and one USB 3.0 interface. Fieldbus connections, such as POWERLINK or CAN, can be individually configured, and compact MLC-based CFast cards with 60 GB or more are available to meet every memory need.
