Wixom, MI: Acromag announced today an addition to their PCIe-based AcroPack® modules, the AP580 Series. These mini boards provide a single Ethernet 10, 100, or 1000 Mbps port. An optional Power Over Ethernet (POE) model, AP580E-POE-LF, provides 52V DC and up to 10 watts of power to powered devices (PD). The POE Ethernet communication avoids other traffic on a network and is ideal for a video camera, VOIP phone, or any other PD devices. A down facing plug-in 100 pin connector ensures a secure connection for your I/O. This board supports Intel i210 Ethernet controller PROset to assist with diagnostics, tests, and configuration. These modules plug into AcroPack® PCIe, VPX, and XMC carriers in any combination for embedded applications running on Linux®, Windows®, or VxWorks® operating systems. AcroPack AP580 modules start at less than $850 and carriers at $750.
