The ultra-compact C6030 IPC is only half the size of the closest comparable control cabinet PC, the C6930, yet it offers more interfaces even in its basic configuration. Depending on the features included, the C6030 IPC offers price savings of up to 34 % over comparable IPCs in the C69xx series. Despite its small size, the C6030 uses – besides the Intel® dual-core CPUs Celeron® and Pentium® – advanced Intel® Core™ i-series processors of the 6th and 7th Generation with up to four cores, and with an optimal ventilation concept, it boasts clock rates of up to 3.6 GHz.
This means that enormous computing power and a comprehensive range of features is available in the space-saving form factor of the C6030. The C6030 is able to accommodate almost any automation and visualisation task, including highly complex axis control, demanding HMI applications, large-volume data handling, and applications with extremely short cycle times. The onboard Ethernet adapter with four 100/1000Base-T connectors, four USB 3.0 ports and two DisplayPort connectors make the C6030 ideal for networking and high-performance Ethernet-based control tasks.
Robust, high-quality device with flexible installation options
Both the new ultra-compact motherboard and the robust die-cast zinc and aluminium housing have been newly developed, taking into account all the typical Beckhoff design considerations such as: industrial suitability, Made in Germany manufacturing quality as well as dependable reliability and high-quality look and feel. Due to an extremely long-lasting, speed-monitored and controlled fan with double ball bearings, the C6030 is able to accommodate an operating temperature range of up to +55 °C, depending on the selected CPU.
As the newest addition to the ultra-compact Industrial PC series, the new C6030 also proves to be extremely flexible in terms of installation. It can be attached at its rear or side panel, vertically or horizontally as required, with free orientation of the connector level. This permits a wide variety of installation scenarios and efficient cable management, even in extremely confined spaces.
