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.

The benefits of IP convergence, such as enhanced efficiency, improved manageability and lower cost of ownership, have long been the driving force behind the growth in the number of industrial Ethernet deployments for supervisory and control level applications. According to studies conducted by IMS Research, the global number of industrial Ethernet nodes at supervisory and control levels will continue to grow at an average rate of 15 per cent from 2010 to 2015. However, the number of ...
The Amplicon Impact-E 400 fanless embedded PC is available with the Intel mobile third-generation iCore processors. The embedded PC is suited to applications in various markets such as transportation, security and automation.
The Senses 5300 series of wide-operating-temperature panel PCs is now available from Amplicon. Available in three LCD display size options — 10in, 12in and 15in — with five-wire resistive touchscreen, the series is said to be suitable for 99 per cent of SCADA/HMI applications.
Amplicon has introduced the ICP DAS WISE-5800, a user-defined Distributed Ethernet I/O module designed for remote logic control and monitoring. According to Rhys Murphy, measurement and control product specialist at Amplicon, the module is ideal for anyone with little programming or coding experience who needs to set up remote logic and monitoring applications.
In the industrial sector, laptop computers are used as a tool for accessing devices, but these are no longer supplied with an RS-232 interface. As there are still a large number of serial devices being used in the industrial sector, this can cause problems when trying to connect to legacy devices. Amplicon has introduced the Moxa UPort 1250 and 1250I converters, which allow PCs to easily connect to an industrial bus over a USB port.
