- Atom-CPU with passive cooling
- Numerous interfaces like CAN, Ethernet, IOs, CFast, DVI and USB
- Software tools for all tasks around the CAN bus
- Link2Go: Extension modules can be attached without adapting the ePC like fieldbus couplers
- IP20 full metal housing for optimum EMC protection
Key performance data
Various processors of the Atom series are available. The chipset is characterized by high energy efficiency and offers low heat loss. 1 to 2 GB RAM are available onboard and also enable more extensive computing operations. The ePC has no rotating parts. Instead of a conventional hard disk, the fast CFast is used as the successor to Compact Flash – the system can also be booted via this interface. The advantage is the speed of up to 3 Gbit/s for data transfer. All CFast cards from 4 to 32 GB are conveniently available from Sontheim.
Due to the full metal housing, storage media and CPU, the system offers optimum EMC properties and can be passively cooled even under difficult environmental conditions.
Link2Go – Put it on!
Modern automation applications require efficiency and the flexibility to be able to react precisely to changing requirements.
With Link2Go we have created the possibility to connect individual add-on modules to the ePC quickly and conveniently and to exchange them as required. The spectrum of planned modules ranges from touch displays and bus couplers to read-only memories and serial interfaces. Customer-specific modules can also be created. Link2Go – create your personal embedded solution at a standard component price.
For maximum flexibility, the ePC already has numerous interfaces without extensions (Link2Go modules). These include CAN, Ethernet (EtherCAT-capable), digital inputs and outputs, DVI and USB. In the basic configuration, tasks as PLC, CAN bus master or slave, signal processing center and many other applications are possible. The integrated CFast interface is – similar to a USB stick – suitable for data collection and also for booting the device.
