B&R launches powerful IP69K PC for mobile machinery

B&R is adding a powerful PC with an Intel processor to its portfolio of controllers for mobile machinery. The fully fledged PC with IP69K protection is specially designed for use in harsh environments. Its high performance makes it optimally suited for smart machines that communicate with each other and with the cloud.

The PC for mobile machinery features a 7th-generation Core i processor from Intel. Performance can be scaled from a 2.2GHz Celeron processor to a 2.8GHz Core i7. It offers up to 16GB RAM and 480GB of flash memory, and is equipped with a TPM module. It also supports standard operating systems like Windows 10 IoT Enterprise and Linux. The PC's computing performance enables implementation of semi or fully autonomous machine functions.

The PC can also be used as an edge controller, collecting large volumes of data from one or more mobile machines, preprocessing it and then sending it to higher-level systems or the cloud. For machine-to-machine and machine-to-cloud communication, B&R offers the widely used OPC UA and MQTT protocols. They allow data packets to be transferred reliably even in cases where the network connection has low bandwidth or is intermittently unavailable.

B&R's PC features a particularly robust construction. It is resistant to shock, vibration, salt, UV light and oil. Despite the housing being completely sealed, it is also fanless. The zero-maintenance PC has a specially developed temperature management system that allows it to be operated from -40degC to +85degC surface temperature.

The PC is insensitive to voltage fluctuations. In addition to a broad standard voltage range from 9 to 32V, it also has integrated load dump protection. This compensates for peaks in the supply voltage to protect the electronics and ensure uninterrupted operation. Two internal slots allow the PC to be expanded modularly with additional communication interfaces.
