(I was looking for a place for 3rd parties to advertise their Ignition solutions but can’t find a forum for that. Maybe the mods can create one and move this there.)
RuggedCom is starting to ramp up production of their APE module for the RX1500 series which is a line of "Rugged and Modular Hot-Swappable Layer 2 and Layer 3 Switches and Routers, with Optional Redundant Power Supplies "
The APE is an Intel atom based single board computer capable of running Windows or Linux. We have tested this with Ignition installed with our own eLAN data collection software installed on Debian talking to a number of DNP devices.
With this setup, we have configured a system with 25,000 tags and been able to process over 2000 changes a second.
If your looking for low cost platform, this isn’t it. If you looking for something that can survive -40 to +80C (176F) in a electrically noisy environment, capable of being an all-in-one-box solution, drop me a line.
