ADLINK Technology, Inc. (TAIEX: 6166), a global provider of trusted embedded products, today announced the DPAC-3000series, its newest Distributed Programmable Automation Controller (DPAC) for the machine automation and factory automation industry. The compact embedded controller offers a distributed control solution for digital and analog I/O and motion control, while enabling a 15 to 20 percent cabling reduction compared to other Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) and Programmable Automation Controller (PAC) solutions on the market today.

"The machine automation industry is undergoing a major shift from the centralized configurations of current PLC and PAC products to distributed control solutions, such as the DPAC-3000," said Jeff Munch, chief technology officer at ADLINK. "With centralized systems, it is difficult to expand functionality and excess cabling gets in the way; however, with distributed control solutions, the integrated fieldbus significantly reduces cabling and functionality can be extended with a generic Ethernet cable."

Equipped with a fast, time-deterministic fieldbus, the standalone DPAC-3000 offers significant cabling reduction and faster installation, all in a cost-effective and compact form factor. The DPAC-3000 features a rugged embedded platform with a front control panel for system integrators to design their own user control interface, which can be used for a variety of applications, including monitoring purposes, and parameter setting and checking.

The DPAC-3000 provides system integrators in the machine automation field with simplified configuration and ease of installation, as well as high shock endurance up to 100 G. ADLINK's DPAC product line features well-integrated motion, I/O and communications functionality.

The module further incorporates an Intel based 10/100Base-T Ethernet port, a PATA EIDE controller, a dual-port SATA controller, 4 USB 2.0 ports, two serial ports, one parallel port (SPP/ECP/EPP) shared with FDD, one PS/2 keyboard/mouse interface, an AC'97 audio interface, and power management functionality.

The DPAC-3000 series of embedded automation controller systems combines embedded PC technology and distributed I/O modules to form a compact, vertically mountable, and highly-extendable Programmable Automation Controller (PAC) solution. The DPAC-3000 supports configurations based on the AMD® Geode™ LX800 and Intel® Celeron® M. For DPAC virtual tour, please visit http://www.adlinktech.com/MAPS/DPAC/
