January 14, 2016 - Beckhoff introduces C6905 and CP6706 PC-based controllers that have a Intel Atom CPU with up to four processor cores.

These compact devices are particularly well-suited for use as small and medium-sized machine controllers, motion applications or more complex graphic applications.

By reducing mechanical costs and paring down the number of interfaces, the two devices precisely suit their corresponding range of applications while offering cost reductions of around 13 to 20 percent, all in a performance class comparable to the somewhat more flexible C6915 and CP6707.

The devices include 2 GB DDR3L-RAM (expandable to 8 GB), on-board dual Ethernet adapter with 2 x 100/1000BASE-T connection, 4 GB CFast card with high-quality SLC flash, four USB 2.0 ports, a DVI connection and an optional third Ethernet port.

Previously, the PC-based hardware entry-level class for cost-sensitive control applications included the CP6606 Built-in Panel PC and the CX9020 Embedded PC, both equipped with an ARM Cortex A8 CPU. The higher computing power of the Intel Atom processor in the new devices enables users to implement more complex control, motion and visualization applications within the same price point. At the same time, a broader range of operating systems can be used, including Windows Embedded Standard and Windows 10, in addition to Windows Embedded Compact.
