The ICP DAS technology presents the new industrial controller which is named “WinCon-8000 Embedded Controller” and participates actively in Computex Taipei 2003.
computer and the Internet have brought the modern industrial
automation the change of the revolutionary nature, and the
chang influences both on industrial automation and the daily
life of the people. The technology of making high-speed high
efficiency automation is essential cause. Taipei Computex
computer exhibition which becomes the famous computer
exhibition in the whole world after the SARS, will be taken
place in September 22nd-26th on the Taipei World Trade
Center soon, and the ICP DAS technology participates actively
in Computex Taipei 2003.
have expanded our product line from PC based data
acquisition board to remote I/O modules. We also have Motion
Control products and embedded control products for
industrial automation systems. ICP DAS has devoted to
embedded control products and internet products for several
years. Because of the benefits that Intel and Microsoft
having an interest in the market of the embedded product,
ICP DAS use the related technology experiences in the
development and application of the new generation of
industrial embedded controller. The controller adopts
32-bite RISC CPU and the Microsoft Windows CE .Net operation
system. ICP DAS leads the others in present of the product of
the WinCon-8000 series in the the 2003 3rd quarter.
It’s feature of the hard real-time of the hardware and the friendly diagram interface for development environment, satisfied the expectations of the user for a long time. ICP DAS has be constructively looking for the HMI and SCADA application solution. We have become the companion of AdAstra Research Group which creats the best integrated SCADA/HMI and SOFTLOGIC system-TRACE MODE and InduSoft which offers a powerful family of industrial software products for developing Windows®-based applications in process supervision, automation and control. IN the Taipei Computex exhibition, ICP DAS will display the integrated solution of WinCon that intervene between HMI and the SCADA software and control the PLC or other remote I/O modules through a way of the communication of ethernet, serial ports and Modbus network. The system with strong feature that has been well equipped with, is completed from PC-based RTU controller to remote I/O modules that connects with PLC or other devices which support Modbus protocol. ICP DAS will display also the application of the development in the area such as the electric power monitoring, industrial control, the real-time information, the earthquake and water flow pre-warning system, and so on.

has the advantages of IPC and PLC.
The WinCon-8000 is a leading edge embedded platform with an Intel Strong ARM CPU running a Windows CE .NET operating system. When compared to the standard Window O.S., Windows CE.NET has some advantages, including hard real-time capability, small core size, fast boot speed, interrupt handling at a deeper level, achievable deterministic control and low cost. According to the interfase just like PC, WinCon is made users control process more easily by many development software
that can run with Windows CE, like Embedded Visual C++Visual Basic.NET & Visual C#. The OPC server and Modbus/TCP protocol join WinCon with different devices. WinCon could be a cost-efective expansion in the PLC system by the transmission of FRnet, and within the redundance function,WinCon steadies the PLC system.

The PISO-DA2 is a PCI bus analog output board with two output channels and isolated 12-bit resolution for IBM personal computer and compatibility. The output range can be configured as voltage output by one of the different ranges: ±10V, ±5V, 0~10V, 0~5V or current output using loop sink by the range: 0~20mA or 4~20mA. Besides, output channel is isolated each other and its isolation range is increased the voltage more than 3000Vdc. It can be thought as the most cost-effective isolated D/A board for the PCI bus interface.
Besides, the output terminals of the PISO-DA2 are two sets of 9-pin D-type female connectors. For easy application, we also offer the daughter board (DB-8425) for simple wire signal connection. According to the development tool, we provide the driver for Win9X, WinNT, Win2000/XP as well. Furthermore, we provide a lot of demo programs for VB, Borland C++ Builder, and Delphi developement environment in order to help user to launch the programming skill.

Previously, a standard RS-232 interface was used in most industrial device systems.
However, new computers or laptops have reduced the use of the RS-232 interface or have simply removed it.
USB interface has gradually replaced the RS-232 interface.
Our I-7560 module is a USB-to-RS232 converter, providing a solution to problems caused by the lack of an RS-232 interface.
Because the slim form factor and dual LED display design, it is the best companion of I-8000 compact embedded controller.(Please see the Application Illustration2)

Now you can easily receive GPS messages and transmit data to a remote host via GSM using a cost affected I-7188XA embedded controller.
We provide C function and demos that demonstrate how you can use this function to receive GPS message and transmit data via a GSM module. You can also adjust the I-7188XA’s RTC via the UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) of the GPS receiver. The demo program also demonstrates how to use the I-7188XA’s 7 segments LED as a simple HMI, to show the latitude, longitude, UTC etc.
The demo program for GSM function shows how you to transmit the acquired data via SMS (Short Message Service) or data link.
