Beckhoff has lunched a new Industrial PC generation based on the new CB3054 3½-inch motherboard. The board was developed by Beckhoff exclusively for multi-core processors and represents the optimum basis for modern PC-based control technology considering price and performance. Multi-core processors offer decisive advantages for PC-based control technology: with them, software-based automation solutions are able to distribute tasks, depending upon the number of available CPU cores. As a result, various functions such as PLC, NC, robotics, measurement technology or HMI can be distributed to dedicated cores with little effort. Beckhoff provides ideal solutions for multi-core technology on the software side with TwinCAT 3 and on the hardware side with a wide range of Industrial PCs. The heart of the new Industrial PC generation is the new CB3054 motherboard from Beckhoff. On the basis of the Intel® GS45 chipset, the board combines multi-core technology with a socket in the 3½-inch form factor. Beckhoff Industrial PCs can be equipped with various multi-core processors, such as the Intel® CoreTM2 Duo or CoreTM2 Quad, and also with inexpensive Celeron processors with two cores. The proprietary-developed board has a large number of on-board interfaces, such as SATA, COM ports and USB ports. A free mini-PCI card slot enables the integration of further Fieldbus interfaces. An additional DVI interface located on the motherboard permits the user to connect two separate displays and thus to develop extensive visualisation solutions. The CB3054 motherboard has a PCI-Express extension, which can be used for further interfaces inside and outside the Industrial PC. For the Beckhoff C6930 control cabinet PC, for example, this means that users have up to seven independent Ethernet ports at their disposal in an exceptionally compact device.
