The IndPEC-3710 integrated controller by the Industrial Automation Group of Advantechustrial Automation Group of Advantech introduces its first integrated I/O controller, the PEC-3710. Featuring an AMD LX800 500 MHz controller with 16-channel analog input, 4-channel analog output and 32-channel isolated digital input/output, the PEC-3710 is a standalone automation controller that offers rich networking interface for function extensions.

The PEC-3710 is an application ready platform, which has integrated most of the I/O functions, including analog input/output, digital input/output, and counters. It has a compact size (255 x 152 x 59 mm) and robustness design, such as fanless, diskless, and no internal cabling, making the PEC-3710 anti-shock, anti-vibration, and reliably operate in temperatures of -10 °C - 60°C (14 °F - 140 °F). Therefore, the PEC-3710 is an ideal solution when it comes to demanding environments and various requests for obtaining/ receiving different data, for example, traffic flow control in an automated highway system, vehicle electronic weighing system, or automatic onboard control system.

The PEC-3710 supports Microsoft Windows XP and Microsoft WinCE with pre-installed drivers and tools to control all I/O functions, which allows customers to save the effort of troublesome installation and accelerate the development time.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
