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.

UCEC Identifies What Makes Them a Top Notch Control Panel Builder

PBUS-27-UCEC-TopNotchPanelBuilder-400.jpg

UCEC has existed for more than sixty years by building the best control panels, period. To keep their focus on quality custom panels, they have never defined themselves as a “one-stop shop." To be all things to all people with something as complicated as a control panel should send up a red flag. When panels shops try to do everything (a “one-stop shop”), that’s when things get diluted and messy.

There is so much talent and work that goes into a UCEC panel. UCEC knows their industry thoroughly, and they wish to remain highly relevant in the field. No one gets there by being all things to all people. UCEC shares two examples of this philosophy in action.

PARTNERING WITH EXPERTS TO SERVE CLIENTS BETTER

UCEC's talented craftsmen contribute their years of knowledge of panel building to each project. Conversely, most engineering firms who try to build panels quickly learn there is more to them than meets the eye. As UCEC's President and CEO, Mark Inboden said, “Two specialized companies collaborating to solve a customer’s problem often leads to a better result for the end user.”

UCEC finds that the best results happen for their clients when they partner with other experts and this case study demonstrates exactly that.
