Upgrading your industrial PC is a significant investment of both time and money. Since Industrial PCs impact so many systems and processes, changes are met with an understandable level of hesitation. Many businesses forgo upgrades for too long, losing out on powerful performance improvements that can save time and reduce costs. So how do you know when it’s time to upgrade your industrial PC? Here are a few things to look for.
As industrial systems become more complex, the need for more sophisticated controls increases. Choosing the right industrial PC can make the difference between a streamlined, independent system with pinpoint precision and a sluggish one requiring regular upkeep. Here’s what to look for when choosing an industrial PC that will serve you now and into the future.

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0 were buzzwords long before they presented real advantages or opportunities to most companies. Though they took some time to come of age, the many interconnected devices and the sophisticated networks and software connecting them are now real considerations for businesses large and small, worldwide, in 2019. As we enter the last stretch of the 2000’s second decade, the futuristic promises of the Industrial Internet of Things and Industry 4.0 have become realities.

The switch from UL508A to UL 60947-4, which were originally instituted in 2012 and became officially required in 2017, presented some challenges to manufacturers and engineers, especially those working with international clients. Siemens, Rittal, and other leading manufacturers have tried to make this transition easier, and facilitate international trade, by providing components that meet both UL and EIC regulations. Understanding that industrial engineers are responsible for not only their own safety, but also successful electrical design to protect the entire plant and all the staff, Siemens and Rittal have also provided information to help engineers navigate these changes and stay safe on the job.
