All the palm-size PACs have same form factor and system architecture. With different software or communication interface, they can be classified to several solutions as following.
Will be available soon
Will be phased out
I-7188 series C language based uPAC (Serial Connectivity)
I-7188 is a palm-size PAC that equips a DOS-like OS (MiniOS7). Its software development toolkit is C language compilers that can build 16-bit executable file (*.exe) running on an 80188/80186 CPU. There are two free compilers ( Turbo C 2.0 and Turbo C++ 1.01 ), we suggest users to use the Turbo C++ 1.01.
By the multi-COM port feature, I-7188 can integrate serial devices (for example: barcode reader, card reader, HMI) and use the few onboard I/O points to implement embedded applications.
£gPAC-7186E series C language based uPAC (Ethernet and Serial Connectivity)
£gPAC-7186E is our new generation of palm-size PAC. It equips a more power full CPU (upgraded from 40M Hz to 80M Hz) and a faster Ethernet port (upgraded from 10 Base-T to 10/100 Base-TX). Compared with I-7188E series, £gPAC-7186E”¦s computing speed is up to 4 times faster. And there are more memory configuration choices to select from.
ISaGRAF based uPAC
The controller fully supports all five of the IEC61131-3 standard PLC languages:
1. Ladder diagram.
2. Function block diagram.
3. Sequential function chart.
4. Structured text.
5. Instruction List plus flow chart.
It supports DCON and Modbus protocol to link to remote I/O modules via the RS-232/485 or Ethernet.
The palm-size PAC all has the same form factor and system architecture. With different firmware and communication interface, they can be a gateway to transmite data to another media or translate to different protocol.
