Industrial Automation

  • Moving towards Intelligence

The industrial automation sector relies on industrial computers more than ever as it is being rapidly reshaped by an intelligent framework. For the past decades, industrial automation systems have been well-developed and used as discrete control systems for human labor replacement. Nevertheless, an industrial automation system within the rising intelligent framework can achieve more.

Nowadays an industrial automation system is evolving to carry out various control schemes and complex collaborative control; to address the need for multi-functionality and multitasking; to process high-resolution images and videos for Human Machine Interface (HMI) and Surveillance applications; to provide Ethernet communication for remote data access, and to support wireless connection to boost mobility and to be integrated into the Internet of Thing (IoT).

As a result, industrial computers are widely deployed at all levels of the industrial automation sector. To fulfill different computing needs at individual levels, Acura has offered a comprehensive range of products.

  • ACURA Automation Solutions

Acura and fanless computer PowerBrick series are designed for Manufacturing Execution Systems at the management level and provide scalable computing power, ranging from Intel® Atom™ to 4th generation Intel® Core™ Processors.

For the Operation and monitoring level, the fanless computer PowerBrick series is ideal for use in Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and Distributed Control System (DCS). Meanwhile, Acura Industrial Panel PC series are dedicated IP rated HMI hardware to allow for reliable human machine interaction on the manufacturing shop-floor and in hazardous facilities.

As for PC-based controllers at the field level, the fanless computer PowerBrick series is designed to support Fieldbus Protocol (CAN open, Device Net, PROFIBUS, Modbus and CANbus), Ethernet Protocol (EtherNet/IP, PROFINET and Ethernet Modbus/ TCP) and other Serial Protocol (RS232/422/485 with isolated ESD protection), enabling data exchange between PLC, Distributed I/O and Process Instrumentation. The PowerBrick series comes with scalable computing power based on Intel Atom™ to 4th generation Intel Core™ Processors.

To maximize the mobility in a facility, Acura Industrial Wi-Fi AcuConnect series can wirelessly link every node with industrial Access Point (AP), outdoor AP and industrial secure WLAN controller. By helping users establishing a reliable, secure and easy-to-manage wireless network, the series can integrate an industrial automation system in a large scale deployment.

  • Intelligent Future under Digital Infrastructure

Dedicated to an intelligent future, Acura offers a full range of products to help lay the groundwork for a digital infrastructure. Within this infrastructure, timely raw data generated from a field site will flow to a backend system where it can to be monitored and translated into valuable information, allowing executives to make insightful decisions and therefore to increase competiveness in industry.
