B&R is adding a high-end PC to its mobile automation portfolio. B&R new IP69K PC offers significantly more processing power and memory, giving it plenty of resources to implement autonomous functions for agricultural and construction vehicles or self-driving transport systems.

The PC is specially designed to perform in harsh environments. The housing temperature can be between -40°C and +85°C. It is also highly resistant to shock and vibration.

Ideal for resource and data-intensive applications

Inside the mobile PC’s IP69K housing is a powerful intel core i7 processor. It also has 16 GB RAM and 480 GB flash memory, making it ideal for computationally intensive applications or involving larger volumes of data.

The increased computing power is needed for tasks such as accurate path planning in autonomous agricultural vehicles. More efficient, more precise vehicles deliver increased yield.

B&R IP69K PC support OPC UA or MQTT

The PC’s high performance makes it optimally suited for smart machines that communicate with each other, process data, and send it to the cloud. Tractors and implements can optimize harvesting efficiency, for example, by exchanging information such as speed and load capacity. B&R supports well-established communication protocols like OPC UA and MQTT.


The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
