Ruggedized, wide-temperature flat-panel computer for HMI and control introduced by Sealevel
LIBERTY, S.C., 13 Nov. 2014. Sealevel Systems Inc. in Liberty, S.C., is introducing the SeaPAC R9-8.4 wide-temperature, ruggedized, flat-panel computer for a variety of HMI and control applications.
The SeaPAC R9-8.4 rugged computer combines a powerful RISC-based embedded computer with a bright 8.4-inch thin-film transistor liquid crystal display, with LED backlight technology, and operating temperature range of -30 to 70 degrees Celsius with no heaters or cooling fans required.
Powered by a 400 MHz ARM9 microprocessor, the SeaPAC R9-8.4 is available with 128 megabytes RAM and 256 megabytes Flash memory. Standard I/O includes Ethernet, serial, USB, and digital interfaces.
For intuitive operator interface, the system includes a resistive touchscreen that is suitable for a wide range of industrial environments and applications. The SeaPAC R9-8.4 is intended for panel mounting and provides NEMA 4/IP65 protection from sprayed liquids.
Local or remote I/O expansion is available using Sealevel SeaI/O modules. Choose from a variety of I/O configurations including optically isolated inputs, Reed and Form C relay outputs, TTL interfaces, A/D, and D/A.
The SeaPAC R9-8.4 connects to SeaI/O modules via the system's RS-485 expansion port and communicates using Modbus RTU.
Windows CE 6.0 BSP binary and low-level drivers for system I/O are included. Additionally, the SeaPAC R9-8.4 software package is equipped with the Sealevel Talos I/O Framework, which offers a high-level object-oriented .NET Compact Framework (CF) device interface.
This interface provides an I/O point abstraction layer with built-in support for easily interfacing the system's I/O. Linux support also is available.
