[Industrial PC] IPC Machine Controller

Perfect fusion: Sysmac machine control and IT technology

Designed specifically for machine usage, making them innovative yet reliable, the IPC Machine Controller combines the precision and utility of the Sysmac platform with the versatility and range of Windows programs.
The two platforms operate simultaneously but separately, so if Windows is down, the machine just keeps on working. As a result, engineers become unstoppable - empowered to explore manufacturing innovation by leveraging big data, NUI (Natural User Interface) and IoT (Internet of Things) initiatives, all without compromising proven PLC reliability and robustness.

The beating heart of the IPC Machine Controller

NY5[][]-1 Features 7

Our challenge was to use Sysmac machine control in combination with an open operating system like Windows.
Normally it would be done using full virtualization, but this would influence the machine control, so it wasn’t acceptable to us. Instead, we use partitioning, so that both operating systems can work independently: if Windows is down, the machine is not affected.

*1. Industrial Box PC was awarded the Red Dot Award 2016 in the category ‘computers’. The Red Dot design award has
      been presented by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen since 1955.
      It is one of the best-respected design competitions in the world, along with the iF award (Germany) and IDEA (the
      United States).
*2. Industrial Box PC was awarded the Good Design Award 2017. The Good Design Award has been a sole comprehensive
      design evaluation and commendation system in Japan since 1957. Many companies and designers from both inside
      and outside of Japan participate in this activity to enhance their industry or quality of life through design.
