The Industrial Automation Group of Advantech is introducing the APAX-5620 RISC-based Controller. With an Intel XScale PXA270 CPU, the APAX-5620 can support Microsoft Visual Studio .Net programming language, thereby allowing PC-based users to easily develop their own applications.
The APAX-5620 features two CAN bus interfaces which support CANOpen stack (DS301 & 302) and two RS-485 ports allowing it to connect to remote I/O devices as well as being able to support up to 32 APAX I/O modules.
The APAX-5620 is compatible with IEC-61131-3 based Multiprog KW languages, which allow users to download change functions and time deterministic support. It also supports WinCE operating system.
With these great features, the APAX-5620 is an excellent cost-effective solution for a wide range of applications, such as steel production monitoring, spinning & weaving machinery, factory automation, and tunnels & freeways.
