A2 - PAC is the 2nd generation of the A-series all-in-one machine controller series. The A2 base units set new standards in terms of performance and communication interfaces at extremly compact dimensions.

The main features at a glance:

  • Intel® Atom™ up to Core™-i CPUs
  • Sercos or EtherCAT Master Interface
  • CAN
  • Onboard-I/Os
  • programmable with CODESYS in IEC 61131-3 or C/C++
  • Three different panel interfaces

  • they differ in the maximum distance between base unit and control unit. All three interfaces only need one cable for video data, touch screen, USB and serial interfaces.
    To connect a standard monitor the A2 base unit also has an HDMI interface.

  • Software (IEC 61131-3, C/C++, SCADA)

  • A2 base units are programmed with the widely spreaded IEC 61131-3 tool CODESYS. Alternatively extensive libraries for programming in C/C++ are available. This allows applications to easily access hardware resources such as fieldbus interfaces or the onboard I/Os. Machine visualizations can be easily created with CODESYS visualization or the SCADA software (WML WinMachLite).
    Of course, the realization of user interfaces in C/C++ and using tools such as Qt is possible without problem
