#SPS Slide-in Industrial PC features extremely flat design

Space-saving C5210 Industrial PC with just one height unit for 19-inch rack installation

With the new C5210 Industrial PC, Beckhoff is extending its series of 19-inch slide-in Industrial PCs with a device with only one height unit and thus satisfies the growing demand for control devices with a flat design. The C5210 has an Intel® Celeron® processor 1.9 GHz, 2 cores, on a 3½-inch motherboard and is equipped with an on-board RAID controller and two SATA 3½-inch hard drive removable frames. The Industrial PC can be extended with PCIe modules, a Mini PCI card or a DVD drive.

With just one height unit (1 HU = 44 mm), the C5210 Industrial PC represents a space-saving control alternative without losses to performance or function. With its compact dimensions of 482,7 x 44 x 493,8 mm (W x H x D), the flexible 19-inch slide-in IPC is suitable, for example, for areas of use where installation space is tight, such as in building services, for measurement technology, in control rooms or in laboratories, etc.

The low installation height is made possible with the new Beckhoff CB3054 3½-inch motherboard. On basis of the GS45 chipset from Intel®, the motherboard combines multi-core technology with a socket in the 3½-inch form factor and is equipped with a multitude of on-board interfaces, such as two Gigabit Ethernet ports, four COM ports and twelve USB ports. A free Mini PCI card slot enables the integration of further fieldbus interfaces.

The C5210 is equipped with two hard drive removable frames for 3½-inch hard disks for RAID systems. Two PCIe module slots are available for insertion of PCIe modules or for leading out interfaces of the motherboard ex factory. The standard equipment includes a DVD drive slot; CD/DVD-ROM or multi DVD drives are available. The 19-inch IPC can be operated with Windows Embedded Standard, Windows XP, Windows 7 or Windows 2008 Server.
