This spring, Siemens will assemble selected models of its popular line of industrial personal computers (IPC) at its Lebanon, Ohio, facility, reducing delivery lead times to U.S. customers by 40 percent.
Beginning April 1, 2016, Siemens Simatic® 427D Microbox IPC and Panel IPC477D will be assembled at the plant.
“As the demand for IPCs in the U.S. continues to grow, we are making it easier for our customers to receive the units faster,” says Wolfgang Rubrecht, Siemens vice president, Digital Factory, Factory Automation, US. “These IPCs represent our most popular IPC configurations in the U.S. and we will include other models over time to meet customer needs.”
The 427D Microbox IPC features the third generation Intel Core i7 (1.7 GHz) processor for high system performance in demanding industrial applications. A turbo-boost feature delivers up to 2.4 GHz for maximum computing and control performance.
The 19” Panel PC IPC477D comes with a widescreen, capacitive multi-touch glass front. The high performing IPC is ideal for demanding industrial visualization, computing and control tasks even in extreme vibration, shock and harsh ambient conditions.
The U.S. assembled IPCs will adhere to the same rigorous standards as those units produced in Germany, undergoing more than 50 tests, including a 36 hour burn in test, guaranteeing the highest quality available.
Plans to assemble additional units at the Lebanon plant include the Nanobox IPC227E and Nanopanel IPC277E PC in the summer of 2016, the Microbox IPC427E and Micropanel IPC477E in winter 2016 and the IPC547G Rack PC in the spring of 2017.
Siemens IPCs not assembled at the facility will continue to be manufactured in Germany.
