Application areas

The SIMATIC IPC277D can be employed for the compact implementation of simple control and visualization tasks, directly on a machine:

  • Simple measurement and control, e.g. with SIMATIC WinAC RTX and RTX-F software PLCs for failsafe applications
  • Simple HMI, e.g. with SIMATIC WinCC RT Advanced

The important highlights:

  • High-performance data processing with low power consumption
    • Intel-Atom technology of the Power-Optimized family (E640)
    • Wake-on-LAN for remote-controlled changeover between standby and active mode
    • Support of Sleep-States/SpeedStep, i.e. dynamic performance adaptation depending on the required computing performance
    • Intel VT-x technology for virtualization
  • High industrial functionality and flexibility for implementing an embedded solution
    • Flexible memory concepts: CompactFlash or Solid-State drive
    • 2 x GBit-Ethernet (Teaming ability); PROFINET with RT functionality (via standard Ethernet)
    • 3 x High-Speed USB 2.0 ports; 1 x RS232
    • Ready-to-run embedded bundles with WinAC RTX 2010 (F) and/or WinCC RT V11 advanced with attractive saving (optional, in preparation)
    • 512 kByte Retentive memory (MRAM), of which 128 kByte is writeable within the backup time (optional, in preparation)
    • Embedded and standard operating systems optional: WES 2009 and Windows XP Prof.; WES 7 and Windows 7, in preparation
    • "Suited for Linux certificate" for simple secured implementation of customer-specific Linux-based solutions, in preparation.
  • High system availability for reduction of potential failures and maintenance costs
    • Maintenance-free - no rotating parts (fan, HDD)
    • Battery-less operation even in the case of retentive memory option (with clock synchronization via network)
    • Extensive self-diagnosis thanks to pre-installed local SIMATIC IPC DiagBase diagnosis software
  • Robust industrially suitable widescreen displays 7" / 9" / 12" with resistive touch (15" / 19" in preparation)
    • Compact Nanopanel PCs with a mounting depth of 66 mm and more and small diagonals from 7“ and more
    • LED Background illumination, dimmable from 0-100%;
      resulting in optimized power consumption and making it suitable for use on ships
    • High resolution, e.g. 800x480 pixels even with a 7" display
    • High color depth, 16 Mio colors for all models
    • High brightness up to 400 CD/m²
    • High reading angle up to 170° (vertical/horizontal)
    • Long life cycle (MTBF of the background illumination up to 80 000 hrs)
    • Front-side degree of protection: IP65
    • Uniform design of HMI fronts (Panel PC, Comfort Panels)
    • Fanless up to 50°C ambient temp.
  • High investment security for reduction of the engineering costs
    • Long-term available: Service & Support time frame of 8 – 10 years from market introduction
