C6905 Control Cabinet PC and the CP6706 7-inch Built-in Panel PC

Well-suited for use as small and medium-sized machine controllers, motion applications or more complex graphic applications

The entry-level of the Beckhoff Industrial PC (IPC) portfolio has been expanded with two new devices: the C6905 Control Cabinet PC and the CP6706 7-inch Built-in Panel PC, each offering higher computing power than previous entry-level devices. Equipped with a powerful Intel Atom CPU with up to four processor cores, these compact devices are particularly well-suited for use as small and medium-sized machine controllers, motion applications or more complex graphic applications.

Both the 3½-inch motherboard and the aluminum housing in the new IPC models were newly developed, maintaining all typical Beckhoff features. These include industrial-strength durability, “made in Germany” quality and long-term availability. By reducing mechanical costs and paring down the number of interfaces, the two devices precisely suit their corresponding range of applications while offering cost reductions of around 13% to 20%, all in a performance class comparable to the somewhat more flexible C6915 and CP6707.

The new devices still offer a comprehensive range of features. These include 2 GB DDR3L-RAM (expandable to 8 GB through Beckhoff), on-board dual Ethernet adapter with 2 x 100/1000BASE-T connection, 4 GB CFast card with high-quality SLC flash, four USB 2.0 ports, a DVI connection and an optional third Ethernet port.

Previously, the PC-based hardware entry-level class for cost-sensitive control applications included the CP6606 Built-in Panel PC and the CX9020 Embedded PC, both equipped with an ARM Cortex™ A8 CPU. The higher computing power of the Intel Atom processor in the new devices enables users to implement more complex control, motion and visualization applications within the same price point. At the same time, a broader range of operating systems can be used, including Windows Embedded Standard and Windows 10, in addition to Windows Embedded Compact.
