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’s SQ2020 is a universal datalogger that can be used as a standalone or PC-based data acquisition solution, able to support several different analogue inputs.
Amplicon has introduced its Impact-D 100 DIN Rail mountable, low power embedded system, which has been designed to be compact, rich in I/O and running the latest quad core ATOM processor, the Intel ATOM E3845.
Amplicon is offering the MB3170 and MB3270: advanced Modbus gateways that allow multiple Modbus masters to exist on the same Modbus network.
Variable-frequency drives (VFDs) are used in a number of industrial applications to save energy by controlling the speed of motors. VFDs are important because electric motor-driven systems (EMDSs) account for about 45 per cent of all electricity consumption. In this white paper, Amplicon shows how industrial Ethernet gateways can be used to create a communication gateway between VFDs and PLCs that is easy to install and maintain.
The AWK-1131A industrial wireless access point and client from Amplicon is designed to meet the growing demand for faster data transmission speeds by incorporating IEEE 802.11n technology. The AWK-1131A can achieve a net data rate of up to 300Mbps and can operate on either the 2.4GHz or 5GHz band.
