The IA260 embedded computer comes with 4 RS-232/422/485 serial ports, dual Ethernet ports, 8 digital input channels, 8 digital output channels, VGA output, 2 USB hosts, and a CompactFlash socket. The computers are housed in a compact, industrial-strength aluminum case.
The IA260 computer uses the Cirrus Logic EP9315 ARM9, 32-bit, 200 MHz RISC CPU. This powerful computing engine supports several useful communication functions, but will not generate too much heat. The built-in 32 MB NOR Flash ROM and 128 MB SDRAM give you enough memory to run your application software directly on the IA260.
With its built-in VGA output interface, the IA260 is suitable for use with SCADA systems in industrial applications, such as factory automation, production line process monitoring, and mining automation, that require VGA and HMI features.
The IA260 computer supports RS-232/422/485, digital I/O, and has dual LAN ports, making them ideal as communication platforms for industrial applications that require network redundancy. In addition to the standard model, wide temperature (-40 to 75°C) model is available for use in harsh industrial automation environments.
The IA260 embedded computers come pre-installed with either the open standard Linux OS, or the more common WinCE OS. Software written for a desktop PC can be easily ported to the IA260 platform by using a common compiler, without needing to modify the code, and the software you develop for your own applications can be stored in the IA260’s flash memory
