Industrial PC series C65xx

Industrial PC series C65xx

The C65xx Industrial PC series is designed for space-saving installation in control cabinets. The Industrial PCs of this series and a Beckhoff Control Panel with DVI and USB connection as operating unit make an ideal combination, representing a powerful platform for machine construction and plant engineering applications, for example with the TwinCAT automation software.

The C65xx Industrial PC series is designed to be installed in control cabinet walls or in the rear panel of a control housing or console housing. The heat sink of the Industrial PC is thereby fed to the outside through a suitable cut-out in the panel or wall of the control cabinet. Power dissipation from the processor and chipset takes place directly to ambient. Integrated seals provide for an IP 65 closure. This enables high thermal stability and at the same time fanless operation. Industrial PCs of type C65xx can thus be constructed completely without rotating parts. Installation in a control housing in combination with a Beckhoff Control Panel results in a fanless Panel PC that can be operated at ambient temperatures up to 45 °C.

The compact housing is equipped with a 3½-inch motherboard for Intel® Celeron® or Core™ i3/i5/i7 of the latest generation. All of the PC’s connectors are located on the top side of the housing. The C65xx series PCs are supplied with an integrated power supply unit with 24 V DC input voltage, optionally with integrated uninterruptible power supply (UPS). A battery pack can be connected externally and installed on a DIN rail close to the PC.

Industrial PCs from this series and Beckhoff Control Panels as control units make an ideal combination for high-performance control platforms in machine construction and plant engineering applications, particularly in conjunction with TwinCAT automation software under Windows 10 IoT Enterprise. Due to their two independent Ethernet interfaces the C6515 and C6525 Industrial PCs are ideally suited as compact central processing units for an EtherCAT control system.

The on-board SATA RAID 1 controller can mirror two hard disks, two SSDs or two CFast cards. If one of the RAID disks fails, the system continues to run. The faulty data medium can be replaced and mirrored during operation.
