Modern system concepts tailored to Industry 4.0 or the Internet of Things (IoT) offer numerous advantages in terms of process efficiency and quality. The compact C6015 industrial PC (IPC) is a space-saving, high-performance IoT edge device that fully utilises these advantages for new and legacy systems in the process industries.

By integrating comprehensive IoT and analytics functionality, PC-based control technology opens up a large range of options to optimise production. System consistency in the control platform ensures simple implementation and high transparency:

Measuring 82 x 82 x 40 mm, the C6015 IPC with multicore technology can be flexibly installed in highly confined spaces. Equipped with an Intel Atom processor offering up to four CPU cores, the product provides sufficient processing power for simple collection, processing and provision of process data and for the more complex tasks required of a modern IoT gateway. Microsoft Azure certification underscores that the device is suitable for state-of-the-art Industry 4.0 applications.

Existing process technology systems can be easily equipped with additional IoT capabilities using the IoT edge device or they can be readied to meet future communication requirements. In this way, operators of process technology systems gain access to IoT and analytics solutions supported by Beckhoff technology, regardless of the automation technology used — be it PC-based control or third-party control platforms. This reduces production costs, optimises product quality and improves the overview and transparency of all process workflows.
