Avalue Announces SLP-WHG: High Performance Slot PC Solution with EtherCAT
January 03, 2022
Fanless with Rich IO, Designed for Industry 4.0
TAIPEI, TAIWAN, December 7th 2021 - Avalue Technology Inc. (TAIEX: 3479-TW), a global industrial PC solution provider has launched its SLP-WHG: a new high performance Slot PC solution with EtherCAT. Manufacturers are constantly seeking improvements to production efficiency, and a new way to transform their business is through Industry 4.0. Intelligent factory solutions such as the SLP-WHG can connect and extract data even from legacy systems or non-digitized environments, refining the data for intelligent management and data-driven digital transformation. The SLP-WHG is designed to meet high performance industrial automation applications with short cycle time, synchronized read speeds and data security.
Powerful Processing with Rich I/O Expansion
The SLP-WHG features a highly capable Intel® 8th Generation Core Processor in a fanless chassis. Capacious DDR4 memory capacities up to 32GB total provides fast memory caching opportunities or plenty of overhead for even the largest runtime applications. M.2 expansion opportunities are available for Wi-Fi, SSD storage and GNSS, plus PCI-Express 4x and 1x slots for add-in cards such as motion controller, digital or analog IO and video capture. Rich IO includes three Gigabit Ethernet, four COM ports, four USB 3 ports (3x Type-A, 1x Type-C), three HDMI display output and one 2.5-inch SATA drive bay.
Expressly Designed for Industrial Environments
The SLP-WHG is ideally designed to withstand harsh environments and supports wide DC voltage input between 12 to 24V, and wide operating temperatures from -20ºC to 50ºC. Avalue provides VESA mounting options in the chassis so the SLP-WHG can be fixed to a wall, device or unit. Furthermore, the Avalue SLP-WHG is CE/FCC Class A certified.
High Performance EtherCAT, Flexible Modules, Fast & Efficient Deployment
Avalue's new generation of EtherCAT solutions, including the SLP-WHG, integrates hardware and software elements to enable fast, high performance industrial automation applications with many ready-to-use features, speeding development and expansion of Industry 4.0 smart factories. Avalue EtherCAT enhances throughput by up to 30% compared to equivalent devices without EtherCAT. It offers time-deterministic synchronous control for a wide variety of automation usage; it supports 3rd party EtherCAT assistive-module support, giving operators freedom to choose different motors and I/O based on cost/performance needs, thereby building a more efficient operating environment with lower TCO. Deployment of each new system is fast and efficient thanks to Avalue's easy to use utilities.
