Delivery release SIMATIC IPC127E

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
The new SIMATIC IPC127E as ultra-compact IoT gateway for data collection, pre-processing and forwarding of data is now released for delivery.

Delivery release SIMATIC IPC127E




The product portfolio of the Simatic IPC is extended by the Windows-based Simatic IPC127E. Thanks to an ultra-compact enclosure size of 0.3 liters only, it can be easily integrated directly in the control cabinet or machine with minimum space requirements (even subsequently). The closed all-metal enclosure allows the new industrial PC to be used flexibly and without requiring maintenance even under harsh conditions. In this way, the Simatic IPC127E allows to reliably acquire / collect / process and transfer data directly in the manufacturing environment; it can be flexibly used as IoT gateway between the cloud or company IT level and the production. Due to preconfigured variants, the users can always use the right product within a very short time.

Major highlights: High-performance data processing with highly compact design

    • Current CPU technology of the Intel-Apollo-Lake series
    • 2-Core: Intel E3930 and 4-Core: Intel E3940
    • Power consumption <= 15 W, i.e. low waste heat in enclosure/control cabinet
    • Wake-on-LAN for remote-controlled switching between stand-by and active state
  • Superior industry functionality for the implementation of an embedded solution
    • Solid-state drive as robust mass storage: 32 / 64 / 128 GB
    • 2x / 3x GBit Ethernet (teaming-capable); PROFINET with RT functionality (via standard Ethernet)
    • 2x / 4x USB 3.0 Ports
    • 1x DisplayPort as graphic connection
    • Windows 10 LTSB 2016 incl. embedded features such as Unified Write Filter (UWF)
  • High system availability in order to reduce the risk of potential failures and maintenance costs
    • Maintenance-free since there are no rotating parts (fans, HDD)
    • Self-diagnostics using SIMATIC IPC DiagBase pre-installed local diagnostics software
  • High flexibility for adjustment to the machine
    • Flexible mounting (standard mounting rail and wall mounting)
    • In all vertical mounting positions
    • Reduced space requirements (installation volume approx. 0.3 liters; integrated 24 V DC industrial power supply)
    • Up to 50 °C ambient temperature; dust protection due to closed enclosure
    • LEDs for efficient self-diagnostics; optimized for headless operation
  • High investment security in order to reduce engineering costs
    • Long-term availability: Service and support period of 8 – 10 years after market launch
    • The SIMATIC IPC127E will be presented for the first time at the SPS trade show in Nuremberg in 11/2018.
  • Target applications
    • The IoT gateway for data acquisition / collection / processing / transfer
    • Integration of machines in cloud/edge solutions
    • Networking / retrofit of digitalization tasks in brownfield installations
    • Simple visualization tasks (released for Simatic WinCC RT Advanced)
