A modern industrial PC for professional machine, system and switching cabinet solutions needs to be compact, robust and maintenance-free, while protecting investments. But that's definitely not sufficient anymore. In addition to measuring and control functions in the form of a CODESYS soft PLC, it also needs to handle visualization tasks, data storage and processing, as well as the complete range of communications systems. The highly flexible new industrial PC (IPC) Kuhnke Econo 208 by Kendrion Kuhnke Automation supports all these demanding system requirements.
The compact Kuhnke Econo 208 is a Microbox IPC designed for switching cabinet integration. With this new model, Kendrion Kuhnke Automation provides a new IPC generation that puts an end to former limitations. The highly flexible power package not only stands out due to its low pace requirements. It also realizes a high level of scalability and expandability based upon fanless dual-core processors and operating systems. In addition, it allows the realization of custom-designed packages according to customer requirements. Two SD card slots are available for the custom designed firmware package and separate data collection.
The control of monitors and LCD displays is realised with the latest DisplayPort monitor interface technology. It allows the easy connection of all present and future display systems. For this reason the displays of the Ventura Touch series are now also available with this latest technology to match the Kuhnke Econo Microbox IPCs and provide an IPC system according to the very latest standards. Besides integrated communications interfaces, such as LAN, EtherCAT®, CAN and USB, the Kuhnke Econo IPC also allows the integration of an expansion card. This allows the support of additional fieldbus systems, such as Profibus, Profinet or Ethernet IP. It also supports GSM and WLAN communication to realise compact and cost-effective and highly communicative remote maintenance solutions.
The compact new IPC provides a high level of flexibility and performance at minimum cabniet dimensions (w=50 x h=190 x d=115 mm). It supports the integration of latest technologies as well as customer-specific functions. Due to its know-how protection package it is virtually immune against product piracy and thus secures your know-how and spare parts business.
