AFL3-W15_W19-ULT3_CMYKReal-time, transfer speed, and intelligence of control units are crucial parameters for the automation of facilities and machines as well as motion control applications. Primarily, established protocols such as CCLink, Profibus DP or EtherCAT are deployed. With this in mind,  ICP Deutschland expands its proven panel PC AFL3 series with the modular I/O interface “E-Window”. It provides system integrators with additional expansion modules for instance GbE LAN, 3G, CCLink, Profibus DP or EtherCAT in order to address application requirements in a flexible and easy manner. The “E-Window” models are available as wide screen touch panel in two display sizes: 15.6” and 18.5”. Both versions can be obtained with an Intel® Core® i5 or Celeron® ULT processor and can be equipped with max. 32GB DDR4 SO-DIMM. Moreover, the AFL3-ULT3 series of ICP has different mass storage connections such as a 2.5’’SATA 6Gb/s HDD bay, a mSATA and a lead out M.2 (M Key) slot. The touch panel can be operated with an input voltage between 9V~30VDC among temperatures of -20°C and +50°C. The IP64 protected front of the panel PC provides an elegant HMI interface for controlling industrial automation processes.
