WES7 P Option Released for SIMATIC IPC627D / 827D / 677D

  • Associated product(s)

With immediate effect (11/2014) the configuration option Windows Embedded Standard 7 Professional (WES7 P) has been released for delivery for the Industry-PCs SIMATIC IPC627D / IPC827D / IPC677D.

WES7 P comes in the 32-Bit version with SP1.  This operating system features a small memory size and high security. Its small footprint enables it to be delivered on a small and cost-effective 80-GB solid state drive, which, due to the employed memory technique, distinguishes itself with high operational reliability in industrial environments. A further increase in the operational reliability can be achieved by activation of the Enhanced Write Filter (EWF) in the operating system:

  • Avoidance of write accesses to the SSD drive increases the lifespan of the SSD
  • Each re-boot rejects system changes and ensures the activation of the originally defined WES7 P system
  • Viruses / worms cannot establish themseves on the system drive

The IPC systems thus equipped are predestined for applications requiring maximum processor power in conjunction with an embedded version of the Windows 7 operating system.
