SANTA CLARA, Calif., May. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- APLEX Technology Inc.announced today that its industrial PC solutions are compatible with EtherCAT® Ethernet fieldbus technology to enable integration into real-time automation applications. The EtherCAT protocol is standardized in IEC 61158 and features fast data transfer (30 to 100 microseconds) for real-time automation requirements and low communication jitter (less than one microsecond) for precise synchronization. Applications include factory automation, transportation, retail, hospitality, environmental monitoring, warehousing, medical, health care and more.

"Considering that EtherCAT can accommodate thousands of distributed I/Os without a reduction in cycle time, and our industrial PCs are designed to perform reliably even under the most adverse conditions, EtherCAT-compatiblity makes APLEX industrial PCs the ideal solution for high-performance automation requirements in harsh environments," said Aplex Technology General Manager David Kok.

APLEX industrial PCs are marketed to OEMs/ODMs, channel partners, systems integrators and machine/panel builders. The company provides value by offering highly reliable electronics, solid experience in the design of systems for harsh environments, and a low barrier to engage. The APLEX product line includes:
