ioPAC 8020 Series
Sturdy and dependable, ioPAC 8020 Series modular controllers are an ideal solution for rolling stock and trackside applications. This series tolerates temperature extremes from -40 to 75C, is enclosed in a sealed metal casing, and is compliant with EN 50121-3-2, EN 50121-4, and relevant sections of the EN 50155 anti-vibration standard. The ioPAC 8020 Series also features a Linux/GNU platform adapted to data acquisition and condition monitoring. The main advantage of this open C platform is its user-friendly SDK, which helps economize on installation and configuration overhead by reducing your programming workload for key areas, including I/O control and condition monitoring, SCADA/DB interoperability, and improving smart communication controls. The ioPAC-8020 Series has a 2-port Ethernet switch that allows system integrators to easily build control networks with open Ethernet standards and daisy-chain topologies. Built-in dual power inputs ensure nonstop data transfer to the controller and uninterrupted communications management on the control network. For train-related applications, spring-type terminal blocks and optional M12 Ethernet connectors deliver reliable operations in high-vibration environments. In addition, a rich selection of hot-swap I/O and communication modules is available for any combination of device applications.
