Advantech Releases its First Integrated I/O Controller

CINCINNATI, OH -- The Industrial Automation Group of Advantech introduces its first integrated I/O controller, the PEC-3710. Featuring an AMD LX800 500 MHz controller with 16-channel analog input, 4-channel analog output and 32-channel isolated digital input/output, the PEC-3710 is a standalone automation controller that not only greatly shortens customers' development time but also offers rich networking interface for function extensions.

The PEC-3710 is an application ready platform, which has seamlessly integrated most of the I/O functionalities, including analog input/output, digital input/output, and counters. It has a compact size (255 x 152 x 59 mm) and robustness design, such as fanless, diskless, and no internal cabling, making the PEC-3710 anti-shock, anti-vibration, and reliably operate in temperatures of –10°C to 60°C (14~140°F). Therefore, the PEC-3710 is an ideal solution when it comes to demanding environments and various requests for obtaining/ receiving different data, for example, traffic flow control in an automated highway system, vehicle electronic weighing system, or automatic onboard control system.

The PEC-3710 supports Windows XP and WinCE with pre-installed drivers and tools to control all I/O functions, which allows customers to save the effort of troublesome installation and accelerate the development time.
