Amplicon introduces fanless industrial PC suitable for space-restricted applications
Amplicon has added to its industrial embedded Impact-E series with the Impact-E PCIe, a compact fanless embedded system. Powered by an Intel Atom D525 dual-core processor, the system is suitable for multiple applications that support PCIe.
The Impact-E PCIe system offers a choice of four or eight COM ports, both of which are software configurable to RS232/422/485, which allows for greater flexibility.
Designed for applications where space is at a premium, the Impact-E PCIe is compact, making it suitable for markets such as transportation, security, point of sales, laboratory automation and industrial automation.

- Pre-fitted with a choice of high-density serial communication cards
- Can be pre-fitted with Amplicon DAQ cards, PCIe-236 or PCIe-296, which offer up to 96 flexible digital I/O channels with a 0–50VDC I/O range
- Space for two 2.5in hard drives or solid-state drives as well as an optional Compact Flash card
- Encased in a fanless aluminium chassis designed to dissipate heat effectively
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 ...
