Advantech PAC, APAX-5000 control IPC series is an industry first modular IPC, it is a PC-based machine control platform with comprehensive I/O modules, communication ports and control software for choice. It is also an automation control platform which provides an open development architecture with redundant, integrates control, information processing, and networking functilities in a single automation system.
  • Analog I/O Modules

    The Advantech APAX-5000 analog input/output modules offers channel-independent configuration, signal type selection (AI has 12 channels and AO has 8 channels), sensor wiring burn-out detection, hot swap functionality and can be easily configured for different types and ranges of input/output to support versatile applications using the same utility software.
  • APAX Controllers

    Advantech's redundant controller-APAX-5000 series, including the APAX-5620, use an open development architecture with embedded KW Multiprog Softlogic software and optional HMI/SCADA, integrates control, information processing, and networking in a single automation control system.
  • Backplane Modules

    Advantech's APAX backplane modules are designed to connect APAX modules in a flexible and convenient way. The APAX backplane modules, the APAX-5001 and APAX-5002, are in accordance with 1-slot and 2-slot backplanes for different APAX modules connecting requirements. Furthermore, the APAX-5002 is equipped with an RJ-45 port which can support flexible remote control architectures.
  • Communication and Storage Expansion Modules

    The APAX Remote I/O series communication modules are designed for control markets because of their high density I/O points, flexibility, scalability, and hot-swappable functionality and also variety I/O selections. The APAX Remote I/O communication modules can support a variety of protocols, including PROFINET, CANOpen, Modbus/TCP and Ethernet/IP, users can build their APAX remote I/O system with specific protocols to fulfill the remote I/O needs of existing PLC market and any control markets.
  • Digital I/O Modules

    The Advantech APAX-5000 digital input/output modules (APAX-5040) are equipped with high density 24 channels, isolation, shirt short circuit protection, failure protection functions and hot swap functionality to increase the utilization rate of this APAX-5040 digital input/output module and provide a reliable system.
  • Power Supply Modules

    Advantech’s APAX-5343 and APAX-5343E power supply modules with 72W output power have passed Energy Star compliance and provide a power transmission efficiency of over 88% from AC input to DC output, providing power for more APAX modules. They have also passed UL 508 certification, demonstrating that they are suitable for safe operation in industrial environments.
