Jul. 5, 2016 – Advantech’s Industrial Automation Group has announced the APAX-5580 Control IPC with communication ports, such as GbE, USB 3.0, mPCIe, serial ports as well as the option to choose the processor.
The APAX-5580 is a PC-based control platform with I/O modules, communication ports, and control software, and is particularly designed for integrating Operation Technology (OT) and Information Technology (IT) in the Industrial 4.0 trend. “Unlike other standard IPCs, the APAX-5580 is a total modular system which can help developers build a system with a complete Advantech APAX product line to meet their exact needs without complicating their system infrastructure and reduce the amount of time to configure,” says the company. The unit can be connected to other third party industrial devices, it adds.
