ADLINK Technology has announced that it will showcase, amongst other products, the following innovative highlights for SPS ICS Drives Show, 25th to 27th November 2014, Nuremberg:
Next-gen x86 smart camera
High-speed pharmaceutical inspection applications are empowered by ADLINK’s next-gen x86 smart camera, the NEON-1040, featuring quad core Intel Atom processor E3845 1.9 GHz, 2048x2048p at 60fps 1" monochrome CMOS global shutter image sensor, and PWM lighting control. The quad core CPU increases computing power, and FPGA coprocessors and GPU deliver advanced image processing well beyond the capabilities of conventional smart cameras. Rich software support and API compatibility further enable easy migration from original platforms, making it simple for system integrators to fulfil a variety of inspection application needs.
EtherCAT solution for time-deterministic control
ADLINK EtherCAT provides total solutions for automation based on their IEC-63313-3-compliant Talos series automation controller and time-deterministic I/O and EPS series motion control systems. Compatibility with a variety of EtherCAT servo drives and 3rd party EtherCAT products is guaranteed, delivering unified, powerful communication for the entire automation sector. Finally, the EPS’ unique structural and electronic advantages support hot-swapping, and rugged construction and wide operating temperature tolerance enable operation in the harshest environments.
Rugged Android tablet for true industrial mobility
The IMT-1 Android 4.2 tablet PC is as attractive as the market’s leading consumer tablets, with a 10.1” capacitive touch screen and built-in megapixel cameras on the front and rear, integrating the TI OMAP5432 1.5GHz dual-core ARM A15 processor for high performance computing power. Built-in WLAN or optional WWAN connectivity enables the IMT-1 to easily access information in a wide variety of workplace scenarios. An IP54 rating and 1.2m (with optional protective housing) drop resistance support significantly more durable construction to withstand the most demanding environments.
Highly durable industrial PC
The Giant series industrial PC is completely fanless and designed with all-round IP65 protection, including the interface cables, for easy maintenance and high reliability. The metal-housing design means that the industrial PCs are exceptionally robust and suited for industrial automation applications. The series comes in with 15, 17 and 19” different sizes and with resistive touch screen with a highly durable touchscreen surface. The surface is chemically hardened, has an anti-reflection coating and offers maximum resistance to environmental influences.
Intelligent embedded IoT gateway solution
ADLINK is pleased to introduce its embedded IoT gateway solutions, the MXE-100i and MXE-200i. Based on the Intel Quark SoC X1020 and Intel Atom SoC E3826, the solutions’ reliable I/O design maximises industrial connectivity, and, combined with ADLINK’s SEMA Cloud utility, delivers manageability and robustness demanded by mission critical operations. IoT-ready platforms benefit from full support for Intel Gateway Solutions, integrating Wind River Intelligent Device Platform XT 2.0, and McAfee Embedded Control, for reliability and security.
