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 launched a selection of industrial-grade wired modems and routers supporting a range of data transmission technologies from broadband ADSL/VDSL to legacy 56k dial-up. Manufacturers include Insys Icom, Digi International and Moxa.
The Agilent U3606B combined digital multimeter/DC power supply from Amplicon is a fully compatible replacement to the U3606A. It can be used to provide both power and measurement when performing tests on a device under test (DUT).
The General Purpose Interface Bus (GPIB), adopted for use in a range of instrumentation applications, is now being challenged by emerging standards such as USB and LXI. This white paper from Amplicon examines the development potential for GPIB and analyses the future of this technology.
Amplicon has introduced the Impact-E 300 fanless embedded PC with multiple PCIe expansion. Packaged in a lightweight chassis that is designed for optimal heat dissipation, the Impact-E 300 has a full range of OEM branding options available for the chassis and operating system.
If you manage or operate an industrial automation network you will already be familiar with network management. All of the activities that are involved in configuring, maintaining, monitoring and troubleshooting your network are network management tasks. For example, it is important to know which parts of your network are dependent on each other, how heavily each section of the network is being used, whether some devices are more prone to failure than others and when devices should ...
