A7 Industrial Controller

Industrial Controller and DSS Board Supporting 6 Axes


A7 is an industrial PC designed to be deployed and installed on a DIN rail. Even though it is not larger than an automatic switch, A7 is a complete PC without any rotational components. This computer is built with a vertical orientation in mind and with INTELTM powerful ATOM processor ranging from 1.1 to 1.6 GHz.

A7 can expand and improve, in an economical way, performance and productivity of any industrial and laboratory environment. Since it is based and compatible with open PC standards, A7 can be intergrated with ease, with hardware and software components, into an existing network through the use of a common operating systems and communication protocols.
Basic capabilties of the A7 controller are

  • Data acquisition and process control
  • Industrial Visual Logic Control (VLC)
  • Remote Terminal Unit
  • Laboratory based analysis and research
  • Robotics
  • Superior alternative to any PLC


A7 works with the following operating systems: Windows 7, XP, Vista, XP Embedded, WePOS, Windows CE 6.0 and Lunix
In general, A7 will work with any PC software including popular tools such as IEC61131-3 CodeSyS for Windows CE 6.0, LabView and CVI.
