With the "Apax" series from Advantech, AMC introduces the new Apax-6572 hybrid PLC controller. The PLC Controller is a combination of the Data Acquisition and Control (DA + C) unit and an embedded IPC system. It is suitable for use in industries looking for an embedded IPC with data acquisition and control in one device.
Equipped with an Intel Atom D510 with 1,66 GHz and 2 GB RAM as well as 3 x Gbit LAN, 2 x COM, 1 x VGA and 4 x USB 2.0 ports, another four Apax modules can be connected directly to the controller backplane. Thus, z. For example, four Apax-5090P modules allow up to 18 COM ports or four Apax-5095P modules allow 8 CAN ports. Furthermore, there is the possibility that up to 32 more Apax modules can be used with this system, which then z. Up to 768 Digital I / = and 192 Analog I / O are available.
The Apax-6572 integrates the three most important elements of automation technology (embedded PC, control and communication) in an open system architecture on a compact unit, allowing users to carry out the complete programming in a simple and friendly environment.
