The Industrial Automation Group of Advantech introduces the PEC-3240 Embedded Motion Controller, providing a combination of integrated processing, control, and communications. The PEC-3240 features four-axis motion control, 32-channel isolated digital I/O, and an Intel Celeron M CPU, making it a robust all-in-one automation controller, according to the company.

By providing a variety of motion control functions, such as 2/3-axis linear, 2-axis circular interpolation, continuous interpolation, T/S-curve speed profile, and position limit detection, the PEC-3240 is a software-ready solution for general machine automation and testing applications. It is fanless and diskless with no internal cabling, making it resistant to vibration and allowing it to operate in harsh environments with temperature ranges from -10° to 65° C. Moreover, its dimensions are compact at 244 x 152 x 59 mm.

The Advantech embedded motion controller supports Windows 2000/XP, Windows XP Embedded OS, and has pre-installed drivers to control motion and IO functions, shortening system development time.
