A CPU board with an Intel Core2 Duo P8400 processor, available from B and R, is said to provide a more powerful platform for Automation PC 810 and Panel PC 800 devices.

The combination of the 2.26GHz Core2 Duo processor and the GM45 chipset is said to provide high performance even for the most demanding applications, such as vision systems.

Both processor cores share a 3MB level 2 cache, which allows efficient multitasking.

The 1.066MHz frontside bus is combined with DDR3 RAM modules.

The different device variants can be scaled to meet the requirements of any task.

Smaller variants of the APC810 with one or two slots, larger types with three slots and the PC with five slots, make sure there is a device type that fits the application, regardless of how many cards are needed.

This saves space in the switching cabinet.

Panel PC 800 systems, with their 15in XGA and 19in SXGA displays and either one or two slots, can form a foundation for any system.

From the broad performance range of energy-saving Intel Atom N270 processors to Core2 Duo processors, all the user has to do is select the best combination of system unit and CPU.

For machine and plant manufacturers, the result is a scalable PC architecture.

Since the same device types can be used from the smallest machine up to the most complex system, the modular structure allows the final product to be individually tailored to the requirements at hand without the need for extra engineering.

Because accessories such as hard drives are the same across the board, logistics can also be held down to an absolute minimum.
