Panel Builder System Integrator

Beckhoff

May 3, 2018

In order to improve coverage for all tasks in the fields of automation, visualization and communication, the popular C60xx series of ultra-compact Beckhoff Industrial PCs has been expanded with the addition of the new C6017. This latest addition to the Beckhoff Industrial PC (IPC) portfolio combines exceptionally compact design and impressive installation flexibility with an increased variety of interfaces and an integrated UPS.

 With miniaturized dimensions, the C6017 is almost identical in design to the popular C6015, currently the smallest ultra-compact IPC from Beckhoff. The success of the C6015 quickly created additional demand, especially from applications that have increased requirements for connectivity and data security in the event of potential power supply failures. The C6017 was developed precisely for these requirements: the existing C6015 configuration with DisplayPort connection, onboard dual Ethernet adapter with two 100/1000Base-T connections and USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, is being extended on the C6017 by adding two RJ45 and two USB 2.0 interfaces. Moreover, an optional capacitive 1-second UPS is integrated, ensuring reliable storage of persistent data in the event of a power supply failure.

With dimensions of 82 x 82 x 66 mm, the size of the C6017 is very similar to the C6015. Only the overall width is extended by a mere 24 mm. Equipped with an Intel® Atom™ CPU with up to four processor cores, the passively cooled IPC also features a robust aluminum and die-cast zinc housing. This means the C6017 is ideal for automation, visualization and communication tasks up to the mid-performance range.

Universally applied generation of control hardware

The new ultra-compact IPC series from Beckhoff meets today’s demanding requirements in machine building, such as increased modularization, reduced space requirements in control cabinets, higher processing power and competitive pricing. Designed precisely with these requirements in mind, the new device generation is well-suited for a broad range of applications, for instance in distributed topologies and advanced IoT (Internet of Things) or Industrie 4.0 applications.

The computing power across the Beckhoff C60xx IPC series is scalable to match wide ranging requirements:

  • C6015 and C6017 for the lower and mid-performance range
  • C6030 – the high-end device with Core™-i series processors with up to 3.9 GHz per core – for highly complex machines, CNC or advanced motion applications, comprehensive multi-axis control, feature-filled HMI, applications with extremely short cycle times, and for handling large data volumes.

With an IIoT network that covers the entire enterprise and has dozens of machines connected to a centralized system, you can see why it’s so tempting for cybercriminals to attempt access on your network. On the other hand, it also shows where your weaknesses are and what you can do to protect it.

During recent years, healthcare, financial service, and retail industries were more “interesting” to cyber attackers than the manufacturing industry. As business disruption and intellectual property theft emerge, more and more manufacturers are becoming victims of cybercrime.

What is Behind the Attacks?
