SIMATIC IPC627E (Box PC) is available with immediate effect

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
The new Box Industry PC: SIMATIC IPC627E with Intel Core i processor technology is now released for sale.


The compact SIMATIC IPC627E is one of the first industrial PCs on the market that is equipped with the latest Intel Core processors of the 8th generation (also known as "Coffee Lake"). It therefore stands out with its high performance in hard industrial use. With its powerful processors, new mass storage media and a memory capacity of up to 64 GB, the IPC627E is ideal for fast processing of large amounts of data and demanding visualization solutions at ambient temperatures of up to 55 °C. For particularly compact solutions (e.g. in the control cabinet), the IPC627E can also be installed with a space-saving vertical mounting.

Areas of application

The SIMATIC IPC627E provides mechanical engineers, plant engineers, and control cabinet makers with an extremely performant, compact PC platform for use at the machine or in an industrial environment for:

- Measuring, open-loop and closed-loop control of process and machine data

- Operation/visualization tasks with remote display/monitor solution

- Data acquisition and data processing

- Motion Control


The SIMATIC IPC627E has the CE marking for use in the industrial sector as well as in residential and commercial areas, and small businesses. In addition to industrial applications, it can also be used in building services automation or in facilities open to the public.
With its low installation depth of 90 mm and active forced ventilation, it can be easily integrated into confined spaces.
The SIMATIC IPC627E can also be ordered at a reduced price in conjunction with SIMATIC HMI packages.
