Press release [Thursday 28 March 2013]
Advantech's Industrial Automation Group (IAG) are pleased to announce the launch of two new panel pc's - PPC-6150/6170. These 15" and 17" models now come with faster processors, RAID control and multiple expansion slots for increased functionality.
The PPC-6170 (17") and the PPC-6150 (15") color TFT LCD displays come with the new 35W Intel 3rd Generation Core I processor. The speed ofthis chip is increased by 20% over the previous generation and supports 3D visual computing to improve the capabilities of the panel computer for software operation and multi-tasking.
With the addition of an additional hard drive both models now support RAID 0 and 1 providing realtime backup of critical data. In the event of voltage spikes between the PPC and industrial devices the RS-232, 422 and 485 ports are isolated against such energy surges. With a variable configuration of PCI and PCIe slots the PPCs allow the installation of add-on cards for specific functions such as frame grab, field bus communication and digital I/O. The models also include expansion for optical drives or W-Fi modules for additional flexibility.
With a range of accessories the PPC-6150 and PPC-6170 are the most compact models and with panel and VESA mounting they fit into any machine or factory automation environment.
