White paper: Microsoft Windows 7 operating system — key benefits for industrial users
‘Windows 7 — key benefits for industrial users’
Industry is traditionally slow to adopt any new Microsoft operating system. Many industrial Windows users will have no need for the many new features on offer and will be cautious of potential bugs or security flaws. It is rarely worth considering switching to a new operating system unless you are developing a new product. For those who are making the switch, this white paper from Amplicon describes the key benefits of using Windows 7.

Amplicon has introduced the WaveSurfer 10, the latest digital oscilloscope in the Teledyne LeCroy WaveSurfer series. The WaveSurfer 10 features a debug toolkit enabling complex analysis with minimal time and effort. It is suitable for use in a variety of testing and analysis applications.
The Impact-R 1100F series from Amplicon is a fanless system powered by the Intel ATOM D2550 processor. It features a high-performance 2.5in MLC solid-state drive (SSD) delivering a silent system.
Amplicon has introduced the Intel Core fourth-generation processor series, featuring high processing power, low power consumption, low thermal characteristics and rich I/O. The introduction of the Haswell architecture signals further advancements and capabilities from predecessors: lower power consumption, greater numbers of USB 3.0 and SATA III channels and iAMT revision 9.
One of the most troublesome aspects of a factory energy-saving system is the fact that large numbers of I/O channels are needed to transmit field site data related to lighting, production lines and environmental monitoring back to the control centre.
As Amplicon explains in this white paper, ‘smart factory’, ‘smart manufacturing’, ‘intelligent factory’ and ‘factory of the future’ all describe a vision of what industrial production could look like in the future. As its name suggests, the smart factory will be more intelligent, flexible and dynamic; manufacturing processes will be organised differently, with entire production chains — from suppliers to logistics to the lifecycle management of a product — closely connected across corporate ...
