Advantech PAC, APAX-5000 control IPC series is an industry first modular IPC, it is a PC-based control platform with comprehensive I/O modules, communication ports and control software for choice. It is also an automation control platform which provides an open development architecture with redundant, integrates control, information processing, and networking functilities in a single automation system. It is particularly designed for integrating
Operational Technology (OT) and Information Technology (IT) to take
advantage of the trend in Industry 4.0.
The APAX-5000 series' versatility, flexibility and scalability can fully satisfy complicated automation industry needs. In addition, This modular Remote I/O have many attractive features to reduce the effort of the engineers, such as redundant capability, high density, clamp type terminal blocks, ID switches, LEDs, writable labels with wiring information, and a flexible expansion topology. Hence, APAX-5000 series can be applied in the batch process production environments like food, beverage, pharmacy, machinery control and critical environmental systems.
Members of the APAX-5000 series include controllers, modular Remote I/Os, backplanes and power supply modules.
