Multi Core processor technology

Thanks to the use of two or four processor cores, the Multi Core processors are ideally suited to multi-thread application programs and multitasking.

Multiple demanding applications – such as visualization applications with demanding graphics or programs executing extensive calculations – can be executed at the same time to enhance the response time of the system. Thanks to energy-optimized Multi Core technology and outstanding energy-saving properties, the Core processors permit the execution of highly complex applications even at increased temperatures up to 40 °C without loss of performance.

The SIMATIC IPC547G is preconfigured for Multi Core technology with Intel Core processors and Microsoft operating systems, and offers higher performance and better multitasking in the industrial environment.

Multi-display technology

The multi-display architecture with its modern functions for desktop and application management supports working with several screens and therefore considerably enhances productivity. The SIMATIC IPC547G with an optional dual-head graphics card (PCI Express x16) is optimized for industrial multi-display environments.

The following screen modes are supported: Native DualView, Span or Big Desktop, Clone.

Connection options: 2 x VGA or 2 x DVI-D.

Additionally, on the SIMATIC IPC547G you can use the two or three already available onboard graphics interfaces in combination with the optional dual-head graphics card which enables operation with up to five monitors.

Monitoring functions

Integrated monitoring functions: Temperature inside enclosure, fan speed (CPU, power supply, graphics card and front fan), program execution (watchdog), battery.

Expanded diagnostics/messages via Ethernet, e-mail, text message and for direct transfer to SIMATIC software via OPC (optionally via SIMATIC IPC DiagMonitor):

  • Operating hours counter

  • Hard disk status, also for RAID configurations

  • System state

  • Automatic logging of all alarms by means of a log file

  • Capability for central monitoring of networked SIMATIC IPC

iAMT functionality (Intel Active Management Technology)

This feature allows remote access to the IPC (for service work, diagnostics and troubleshooting, for example) even if the operating system is shut down:

  • Controlled startup/shutdown of the IPC

  • Access to BIOS settings and BIOS update possible

  • Measures by means of remote access in the event of a fault, e.g. reboot

  • Software updates from integrated ISO image

RAID controller onboard

RAID1 (mirroring) for automatic data mirroring on two SATA hard disks, or RAID5 (striping with parity) for optimized utilization of capacity with high degree of fault tolerance on three SATA hard disks.
