Leipzig – and the Leipzig Fair

Say the word Leipzig – and of course you`ll think of the Leipzig fair! In fact for centuries Leipzig was synonymous with flourishing market fairs. And given the city´s imaginativeness and geographical position, it was hardly surprising that it became the cradle of international trade shows. The people of Leipzig identify more closely with their fair than in any other centre of commerce. Every single move taken by the Leipzig fair is scrutinized by the public – the result of a healthy curiosity and a long heritage dating back to mediaeval times. These days Leipzig enjoys a range of epithets such as “boom town”, “publish centre”, “media city” and “auto town”. Leipzig has always been a place quick to take the initiative while other towns and cities dragged their feet. For example, it was in Leipzig that the idea of a trade fair displaying samples was born, and where following German reunification a brand-new exhibition centre was built in record time. Moreover, over the centuries nothing has shaped the local economy as much as the Leipzig Fair! pb

Ultra-compact Industrial PC

Atom processors from Intel further enhance the scalability of PC-based control technology. The smallest CPU currently offered by Intel forms the centrepiece of the new C6915 control cabinet PC. It is now the most compact Beckhoff IPC, measuring only 47 to 157 to 116 millimeters. Because of low processor power dissipation, Atom-based controllers can be very compact and moderately priced. The space-saving aluminium housing of the C6915 Industrial PC is equipped with a 3½-inch motherboard for 1.1 GHz or 1.6 GHz Intel Atom processors. Cooling is achieved through the PC’s aluminium surface and enables operation at temperatures up to 55 °C. The basic, solid state configuration of the C6915 features a flash disk, which means it has no moving parts and requires no fan. Optionally, a hard disk or a second compact flash card can be integrated. The C6915 has a free Mini PCI slot for a Beckhoff Mini PCI Fieldbus Card or an extra Ethernet card. This requires a compact flash card as the storage medium. pb
