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
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.
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.
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.
