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.

- Encased in a fanless aluminium chassis designed to dissipate heat effectively
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 ...
