B&R puts a PC in a drive
B&R says machine manufacturers use ACOPOSmulti units to achieve maximum performance in minimum space, which in turn means a decisive cost advantage. Now the APC820 integrates the highest level of PC performance into ACOPOSmulti. This allows the user to save even more space in the switching cabinet, by freeing up space intended for the PC.

In the APC820, high-performance Core2 Duo processors ensure that the most demanding automation and visualisation systems run optimally. With the Core2 Duo, the highest level of performance and a low level of power loss are achieved because Windows XP and the real-time operating system run parallel to each other on separate processor cores. It is up to the user to reserve a processor core exclusively for real-time or to release it for Windows. The available computing power from both cores is optimally used. The project is easily developed in B&R Automation Studio. Completely new options and complex automation tasks that were previously distributed over a number of system platforms are now brought together in a single device. 

With the integrated Smart Display Link in the APC820, up to four automation panels can be connected over a distance of up to 160m. Complex processes on physically separated machines can easily be controlled on site.
