With small form factor industrial PCs becoming increasingly more popular, Amplicon introduce a significant addition to the industrial embedded Impact-E series, the Impact-E PCIe.
The Amplicon Impact-E PCIe
is the latest addition to the successful Impact-E series. The Impact-E PCIe is a compact fanless embedded system powered by the Intel® Atom™ D525 dual-core processor, making it ideal for multiple applications that support PCIe.
Pre-fitted with a choice of high-density serial communication cards, the new Impact-E PCIe system offers a choice of 4 or 8 COM ports, both of which are software configurable to RS232/422/485. This allows for greater flexibility and ease of use, meaning the unit no longer needs to be taken apart for dipswitches to be set, removing any potential misconfiguration and reducing installation time.
The Impact-E PCIe can also be pre-fitted with Amplicon DAQ cards; PCIe-236, or PCIe-296. These cards offer up to 96 flexible digital I/O channels with a 0 to +50VDC I/O range, eliminating the additional cost of expensive signal conditioning equipment.
The Impact-E PCIe offers space for two 2.5” hard drives or solid-state drives as well as an optional Compact Flash card. Encased in a fanless aluminium chassis, the Impact-E PCIe dissipates heat effectively, ensuring smooth operation in the most demanding of industrial environments.
Designed for applications where space is at a premium, the Impact-E PCIe has a compact footprint making it ideally suited to multiple markets such as transportation, security, point of sales, laboratory automation, and industrial automation.
