Advantech APAX-5000 controller speaks POWERLINK
"We perceive POWERLINK as one of the fastest growing standards for industrial communication," says Stéphane Blanc. As the I/O & Control Product Sales Manager with Advantech Europe, he is in charge of the entire European market. "It is the ideal addition to our compact and modular PAC platform."
Due to the integration of POWERLINK, this platform has an open architecture and is independent of the system topology. It also provides outstanding attrib-utes such as hot-swappable I/O modules.
The Ethernet POWERLINK Standardization Group (EPSG) is an independent organization founded in 2003 by leading companies from the drive and automation industry. Its aims are the standardization and further development of POWERLINK, which was first introduced by B&R in 2001. The high-performance real-time communication system is a solution based on the IEEE 802.3 Ethernet standard, designed to ensure real-time data transfer on the microsecond level. EPSG cooperates with leading standardization organizations, such as CAN in Automation (CiA) and the IEC. Anton Meindl, BU Manager Controls at B&R, is the EPSG's CEO.
