PC-based control platform for integration IT, OT
Advantech’s APAX-5580 Control Industrial PC (IPC) Is a PC-based control platform with I/O modules, communication ports, and control software. It is designed for integrating operation technology (OT) and information technology (IT) to take advantage of Industrie 4.0. It features communication ports such as GbE, USB 3.0, mPCIe and serial ports. The APAX-5580 includes and Intel Celeron 1.6 GHz/Core i3/Core i7 1.7GHz processor, 4GB DDR3 memory, two GbE ports, one RS-232/485/422 port, one mSATA connector, two SD slots, two mini PCIe slots, dual power input, UPS support, and a 10-year battery. The APAX-5580 is a modular system designed to help developers build a system to meet their exact needs without complicating their system infrastructure.
As a control platform serving smart factory applications, the APAX-5580 can connect to other third-party industrial devices. The APAX-5580 features CODESYS and is able to provide a whole host of extra functions such as real-time Ethernet protocol and programming by IEC-61131-3. It uses target visualization via a connected screen and/or the web visualizations on remote devices via a web browser, which enables controllers to be configured and operated using a web server via the Internet or intranet.
