The CSB Rack has been updated with several improvements while keeping its high-end qualities. The industrial PC for automated data capture has been continuously upgraded for 40 years. Now it comes with improved ergonomics, more flexibility and less footprint. 

Your material flow, planning, forecasting, budgeting and yielding is only as good as the data you feed into your system.

Every company knows the challenges of handling such data. If it is not captured directly at its origin, it may have a huge impact as the data quality deteriorates, essential information for the staff in production is missing, and decision-makers have no transparency. 

With its tried-and-true industrial PC, ERP provider CSB-System has further improved its solution to this problem. The CSB-Rack facilitates automated online data capture in tough industrial environments, for example in goods receiving, at the cutting line, or at the filling machine. As a human-machine interface, the CSB-Rack also allows the visualisation and control of processes. Essential details such as traceability and batching data is captured electronically, directly at the source. 

Pen and paper are a thing of the past. 

The paperless data flow ensures uninterrupted production processes, enhances the data freshness, and promotes cross-departmental communication. The captured data is supplied immediately to the ERP system. In reverse, the ERP data can be sent automatically to the rack. In this way, the industrial PC becomes an information hot spot in production, inventory and logistics, providing the staff with real-time information. Connected to scales or silos, the rack enhances the process quality and the process documentation. 

Ergonomic, robust, and hygienic design 

The CSB-Rack was developed 40 years ago and is continuously being updated and adapted to the conditions in the process industry. The current version now offers a three-dimensional adjustable column-mount that is ergonomic and comfortable to operate. Monitors, keyboard and printer housing can be adjusted easily to the height of the operators, swivelled horizontally, and tilt from front or back.

The robust high-alloy stainless steel case and the unbreakable display screen protect the system from extreme temperatures, high humidity, and splash water. The touchscreen technology with a moisture-resistant surface is easy to use and can be operated when wearing gloves. Plus, the hygienic design of the industrial PC meets the rigid requirements of hygiene standards.

Now even better: our tried-and-true rack

The new CSB Rack generation is now available. With its new design and many advanced functionalities, our robust industrial PC for automated data capture has become even more powerful and flexible. With the CSB Rack, you can visualise and control all processes in tough industrial environments – safe and reliably.

Robust technology with hygienic design

All elements of the CSB Rack are humidity resistant and can be cleaned with high-pressure cleaning systems. The touchscreen can be operated with gloves. Plus, the CSB Rack was specifically developed with a hygienic design to comply with the stringent requirements of hygiene standards and IP69K protection. 

Optimal ergonomics

The new three-dimensionally adjustable column-mount can be adjusted quick and flexibly to the height of the employees. All elements swivel horizontally and tilt from front or back. This makes the workstation even more ergonomic for your staff.
