ARMPAC Series: Ready-to-use HMI for Industrial Automation


Taipei, Taiwan-December 20th , 2017-APLEX Technology Inc., a global industrial computer products solutions provider, is pleased to introduce ARM-based human machine interface, ARMPAC series, runs at low power levels with built-in memory and storage. Based on the disparity of processor, ARMPAC series is provided two levels from entry to high-performance grade. It perfectly expands functionality and creates the plentiful possibility for overcoming the challenges in industrial automation applications to achieve customers’ satisfaction.                                     
 

Prepare the Best ARM-based Solution for You
ARMPAC series includes ARMPAC-5 series which is powered by TI-AM3354, ARM Cortex A8 Processor 1.0GHz, and ARMPAC-6 series that is powered by Freescale i.MX6 DualLite ARM Cortex A9 processor 1.0GHz. OS support is included for Windows CE (ARMPAC-5), Android (ARMPAC-6); Linux with QT is run by both series. With ARM-based system and diverse OS support, driving the ARM-based system to enhance the stability and extend the product life-cycle with low-power consumption for long-term utilization and cost-effective advantage.


Bring You a User-Friendly Experience
ARMPAC series features lightweight, durable, and impact resistance. With IP65 flat front bezel, it not only prevents water and dust from penetrating and accumulating inside the computer mechanical in the harsh environment but also maintains the computer that customers can easily clean the front panel. ARMPAC-5 series is available in the size from 5.6” to 12.1” TFT-LCD, and ARMPAC-6 series comes in 7”-21” TFT-LCD with the resolution up to 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), both support 7H anti-scratch projected capacitive / resistive touch screen. ARMPAC series also supports sunlight readable solution with auto-dimming for providing the viewable surface while operating in high brightness environment, as well as software customization to enhance the compatibility, stability in different applications, and more flexibility for all users.
 

ARMPAC to Expand Functionality
With APLEX TB-508 series expansion boards to better serve industrial automation applications, it provides extra I/O that allows the customers to control all equipment simultaneously. Thanks to ARMPAC expansion ability, the I/O functions can be maximized for additional utilization to meet individual needs; the functionalities are in the following form:


Expansion selections:
Expansion board Features
TB-508C1 1 x RS-232/422/485
TB-508C2 2 x RS-232(RX,TX) in via 1 x  DB-9
TB-508C3G8 3 x RS232 , 1 x 8-bit GPIO(4xDI,4xDO)
TB-508CAN1 1 x CAN




Specialized in Customized Service
ARMPAC is specialized in customization due to the modular functions and software variety. To facilitate the Industrial automation, ARMPAC leverages the different modules to directly enrich the functionality according to the specific requirements.
ARMPAC provides a wealth of choices, delivering the perfect integration of hardware and software for the customers to work with. ARMPAC series supports to customize RFID, smart battery, brightness controlling and auto-dimming functions. Also, under ARM-based architectures, ARMPAC supports Windows CE, Android 6.0.1, Linux 3.2+QT4.8/ Linux4.1.15 + QT5.6.2, other software customizations for various APPs as well.
By customized service, protocol and software support, ARMPAC makes more accessible to operation capabilities.
 

IIoT Machine to Machine Application
ARMPAC series supports comprehensive communication modules for stably controlling each operation and efficiently transmitting the information especially by wireless networks such as WiFi / Bluetooth /GPS /3G / 4G LTE. Additionally, ARMPAC series specially provides POE function. By this, the power and data will travel down the same Ethernet cable; it simplifies the installation procedure and saves overall cost and time due to less wiring.
