Bottling Facility Control
The CompactPCI PlusIO CPU board supervises the fluid levels during the bottling process and controls the production line machinery accordingly. The board is connected to two digital cameras via Ethernet that capture the necessary video feed. To avoid unnecessary costs, no mass storage is used - instead, the system boots via Ethernet. Intel single-core CPUs are used to control the entry-level systems while Intel multi-core versions handle the high-end control units.
Standard Components Used in this Example
The F23P is an x86 PC based embedded computer for industrial automation and railway transportation, featuring the 4th generation Haswell Intel Core family up to the i7-4700EQ processor. The SBC is compliant with the PICMG 2.30 standard and as such a perfect migration path from CompactPCI to CompactPCI Serial.
The F26L is an extremely low-power x86 SBC for industrial automation and railway transportation, featuring an Intel embedded processor with 2- and 4-core E3930, E3940 and E3950 processors. The CPU card is compliant with the PICMG 2.30 standard and as such a perfect migration path from CompactPCI to CompactPCI Serial.
