May 2, 2018 – Beckhoff Automation has expanded its C60xx series of ultra-compact Industrial PCs with the addition of the new C6017 unit.
With dimensions of 82 x 82 x 66 mm, the C6017 is almost identical in design to the popular C6015, currently the smallest ultra-compact IPC from Beckhoff. Only the overall width is extended by 24 mm. The company explains the 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 for the storage of persistent data in the event of a power supply failure. Equipped with an Intel Atom CPU with up to four processor cores, the IPC features an aluminum and die-cast zinc housing, making the C6017 suitable for automation, visualization and communication tasks up to the mid-performance range.
