Adlink Technology Inc. announced the DPAC-1000, its latest Distributed Programmable Automation Controller (DPAC) designed specifically for remote DAQ systems with standard serial communication ports (RS-232 or RS-485). Adlink's series of DPACs offer a distributed control solution for digital and analog I/O and motion control, while enabling a 15-20 percent cabling reduction compared to other Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) and Programmable Automation Controller (PAC) solutions on the market today.

"The DPAC-1000 further demonstrates Adlink's leadership in distributed control solutions by providing an intelligent remote DAQ controller which can collect data from both digital sensors such as discrete I/O modules, pressure sensors, and temperature sensors, and analog I/O modules up to 4,000ft away. This DAQ controller is rated for used in high-shock settings of up to 100G for stable data logging even in harsh environments," said James Gau, VP of the measurement and automation product segment at Adlink.

The DPAC-1000 enables direct remote DAQ through Adlink NuDAM modules via standard serial communication ports. The DPAC-1000 also provides a wide DC input range of 10V to 30V, in addition to featuring a front control panel for system integrators to design their own user control interface. The DPAC-1000 is specifically designed for use in a wide variety of factory applications such as water monitoring, UPS monitoring in a fabrication facility, and boiler leakage detection.

Adlink's Intelligent Remote DAQ and Control Modules (NuDAM) are designed for DAQ systems based on PCs and other processor based equipment with standard serial I/O ports (RS-232 or RS-485 with auto direction control). These modules convert I/O signals to engineering units and transmit/receive, in ASCII format, to/from any host computer with an RS-232 or RS-485 port.
