Advantech Launches Equipment Builder IPCs Featuring Compact Size, Simple Manageability, and Easy Maintenance
Advantech (2395 TW), the leading IPC vendor, is launching a series of rack-mount IPCs featuring small footprint, simple manageability,
and easy maintenance.
Responding to machine builder requests for compact IPCs with failure predication and quick maintenance, Advantech is launching machine builder IPCs that feature short depth, self-diagnosis, remote manageability, and modularized design. Machine builders can easily integrate the IPC in an equipment enclosure, leaving more space for cable routing and internal devices. Once installed, IPC reports its status to a remote administrator before failure occurs, saving on-site inspection costs and reducing risk of unexpected down time. Service staff can quickly swap key modularized parts, minimizing maintenance time.
ACP-2020 and ACP-4020 both feature short depth (400/350mm), a built-in Intelligent System Module that controls smart fan, checks IPC fan speed, and temperature, and proactively reports any abnormal condition. The front-accessible system fan, hot-swap drive bay, and redundant power module facilitate quick maintenance.
IPC-603 and IPC 631 feature short depth (308/350mm), and all I/Os are on the front where the user can easily access all cables, connectors, AC inlet, buttons and LEDs. The IPC-631 also supports a hot-swap drive bay and redundant power supply, which make cable routing and maintenance much easier.
ACP-4D00 features short depth (350mm) and dual-node design; it encloses two independent IPCs in a rigid 4U cage. Each node has two expansion slots, and can be configured independently for different tasks. For example, one node could serve as controller, and the other used for frame grabbing and image analytics.
Advantech equipment builder IPCs are powerful IPC solutions, ideal for machine vision/automation applications, and all are available now. Please visit http://www.advantech.com, or contact your local Advantech sales team for more information.
