Optimized mid-range performance
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, they also offer added flexibility. Up to three interface cards can be used to add 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, which means that the Automation PC 3100 has no rotating parts at all. This makes maintenance tasks like replacing air filters a thing of the past. The amount of memory is also scalable from 4 to 32 GB.

- Numerous interfaces
- Modular interface options
- Windows 10 IoT Enterprise
- Linux for B&R
- Automation Runtime Embedded
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 long-term availability with reliable updates well into the future. It is not necessary to make continuous adjustments to the PC hardware over time.
A further advantage of the current Core i and Atom technology from Intel is a significantly higher performance with lower power consumption at the same time, leading to a maximized overall energy efficiency. This eliminates the need for device-internal fans. The Automation PC 3100 is exclusively designed for passive cooling.
