ADLINK Unveils DPAC-1000 Distributed Programmable Automation Controller

ADLINK Technology, Inc. (TAIEX:6166), a global provider of trusted embedded products, announced the DPAC-1000, its latest Distributed Programmable Automation Controller (DPAC) designed specifically for remote data acquisition systems with standard serial communication ports (RS-232 or RS-485). ADLINK’s series of DPACs offer 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.

ADLINK DPAC-1000 Distributed Programmable Automation Controller“The DPAC-1000 further demonstrates ADLINK’s leadership in distributed control solutions by providing an intelligent remote data acquisition controller which can collect data from both digital sensors such as discrete I/O modules, pressure sensors, and temperature sensors, and analog I/O modules up to 4000 feet away. This data acquisition controller is rated for used in high-shock settings of up to 100 G for stable data logging even in harsh environments.” said James Gau, VP of the Measurement & Automation Product Segment at ADLINK.

The DPAC-1000 enables direct remote data acquisition through ADLINK NuDAM modules via standard serial communication ports. The DPAC-1000 also provides a wide DC input range of 10 volts to 30 volts, in addition to featuring a front control panel for system integrators to design their own user control interface. The DPAC-1000 is specifically designed for use in a wide variety of factory applications such as water monitoring, UPS monitoring in a fabrication facility, and boiler leakage detection.

About ADLINK NuDAM products
ADLINK’s Intelligent Remote Data Acquisition & Control Modules (NuDAM) are designed for data acquisition systems based on PCs and other processor based equipment with standard serial I/O ports (RS-232 or RS-485 with auto direction control). These modules convert input/output signals to engineering units and transmit/receive, in ASCII format, to/from any host computer with an RS-232 or RS-485 port. The NuDAM modules are the key components in flexible and cost effective remote data acquisition and control systems.
