December 10, 2019 – Beckhoff Automation has announced another addition to the family of C60xx series Industrial PCs (IPCs) with the C6025. This IPC is designed to deliver the computing performance of the Intel Core i series in a fanless device.
Measuring 82 x 127 x 40 mm and combining computing performance with a fanless design, the Microsoft “Azure Certified” C6025 IPC is a choice for demanding automation and IoT applications where green, sustainable IT is also a requirement. The Intel Core i U processors deliver Core i performance capabilities yet consume less power than other processors of the same series. The 8th Gen Intel Core i U processors used in the C6025 also offer an advantage typical of evolving PC-based technology. With this addition, the Beckhoff portfolio of IPCs now spans five CPU performance classes – from ARM through to Intel Xeon – for maximum hardware scalability.
The energy-efficient Intel Core i U processors in the IPC, in combination with an advanced cooling design, enable fully passive heat dissipation via a heat sink on one side. Housed in an aluminum and zinc die-cast enclosure, the C6025 feature set offers the following:
- up to four CPU cores
- 4 GB DDR4 RAM (expandable to 8 GB)
- 40 GB M.2 SSD with 3D flash memory
- 1 x DisplayPort video connector
- 4 x USB 3.0 ports
- on-board Ethernet controller with 3 x 100/1000Base-T ports
- operating temperature range of 0 to 50° C
The C6025 IPC expands the broad PC-based control portfolio from Beckhoff to offer a performance level situated between the entry-level devices with Intel Atom CPUs and those with high-end Intel Core i-series processors. With this addition, the Beckhoff product portfolio better addresses the growing trend toward compact, fanless IPCs while supporting applications with computing requirements.
