The Automation PC 3100 series combines the advantages of a compact system with the performance of the latest Core i-series processors. To top it off, the industrial PCs also offer added flexibility. Up to three interface cards can be added for additional options.
The processors are based on Intel's latest Core-i generation. They can be scaled over a very wide range, from Celeron to Core i7. This allows the processing power to be adapted exactly as needed to the respective application.
All variants are fanless, so the Automation PC 3100 features no rotating parts. This makes maintenance tasks like replacing air filters a thing of the past. The scalable memory options range from 4 to 32 GB.

Automation PC 3100 devices offer a variety of modular interface options. Up to three slots can accommodate cards for serial interfaces, Ethernet, CAN and POWERLINK. The slots can also be used for a UPS solution or audio interfaces.
A PCIe/SATA interface provides an SDL4 graphics option in addition to the onboard SDL/DVI connector or a second POWERLINK managing node for data acquisition from two separate networks.
In addition to the industry standard slots for two data storage media in CFast format with up to 256 GB per data storage medium, it is also possible to use high-performance M.2 mass storage devices on the APC3100. For even better performance or higher protection against failure, the CFast cards can also be operated as a RAID volume.
B&R PC systems offer reliable long-term availability of defined product versions, so there is no need to constantly adapt software applications to new PC hardware.
Another advantage of the latest generation Core i-series and Atom technology is that it manages to significantly increase performance while lowering power consumption – delivering maximized energy efficiency and virtually eliminating the need for internal fans. As a result, the Automation PC 3100 features relies completely on passive cooling.
