The UEIPAC™ (programmable automation controllers) offers an unprecedented combination of flexibility, high performance, low cost and small size. The UEIPAC unit is an ideal solution in a wide variety of measurement and control applications including: Temperature control, Remote vehicle control (UAV and ULV), Hardware in-the-loop (HIL) and more. The UEIPAC is also an ideal solution for a host of embedded data acquisition (DAQ) applications as it allows systems to be developed without the cost or the additional space required by an external host computer.
The UEIPAC 300 is 4” x 4” x 4” and offers 3 I/O slots. The UEIPAC 600 is slightly larger at 4” x 4” x 5.8” but provides 6 I/O slots and allows up to 150 analogue inputs or 288 DIO channels. GigE versions of UEIPAC cubes are designated UEIPAC 300-1G and UEIPAC 600-1G for the 3 and 6 I/O slot versions respectively. The UEIPAC 1200R is a 12-slot, 3U 19″ rack mountable PAC while the UEIPAC 600R is a 6-slot ‘half-rack’.
