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
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.
