Machines from different manufacturers don’t always speak the same data language—especially when they’re on different technological levels. Fortunately, you can still incorporate disparate machines into your communications network using the SIMATIC IPC127E, a Windows-based industrial PC and compact IoT gateway.
The SIMATIC IPC127E provides an open platform for data collection, processing and transmission in production environments—making it easier than ever to network your existing plant. It analyzes and harmonizes communication between various data sources and performs control, display and communication tasks. As an IoT gateway, it also ensures a consistent connection between production and the cloud or your company’s enterprise IT systems.
Product highlights include:
Flexible, low-space design. Thanks to its compact 0.3-liter size and integrated 24-V DC industrial power supply, you can easily integrate the SIMATIC IPC127E directly into control cabinets with limited space requirements. It also features various mounting options, including standard, rail and wall mounting.
Robust construction. The SIMATIC IPC127E includes a closed, all-metal chassis for reliable operation in harsh environments up to 50°C—providing protection against dust and high electromagnetic compatibility. It also requires no maintenance—thanks to its self-diagnostic capabilities and lack of any rotating parts.
Superior data processing. The SIMATIC IPC127E integrates powerful, energy-saving dual- and quad-core Intel Atom processors and up to 4 GB of internal memory. Thanks to its many interfaces, this IPC and IoT gateway is ideal for countless applications—from machine integration in cloud solutions, to simple visualization tasks.
