PC in a drive: ultra-compact, integrated
Plastics, packaging, print, and textile industries can benefit from the B&R Industrial Automation Acoposmulti solution.
Plastics, packaging, print, and textile industries can benefit from high efficiency multi-axis machines when using the B&R Industrial Automation Acoposmulti solution. The APC820, "the PC in a drive," integrates the highest level of PC performance in Acoposmulti devices. Intel Core2 Duo processors are included, allowing Microsoft Windows XP and the real-time operating systems to run parallel to each other on separate processor cores. This means complex automation tasks that were previously distributed over a number of system platforms can be in one device.
With the integrated Smart Display Link in APC820, up to four automation panels may be connected over a distance of up to 160 m.
With the integrated Smart Display Link in APC820, up to four automation panels may be connected over a distance of up to 160 m. A wide range of interfaces ensures integration with other automation systems. Real-time communication between APC820, I/Os and drives occurs via an Ethernet Powerlink interface, which comes standard. This helps achieve cycle times down to 200 Control Engineering North American print edition Product Exclusive for April, 2009.
