Advantech Announces FPM-7000 Modular Monitor Series for Industrial IoT Visualization Applications

Date: 4/23/2018 12:00:00 AM

Taipei, Taiwan, May, 2018 – Advantech, a leading industrial computing platform provider, is pleased to announce its FPM-7000 series of modular industrial monitors aimed at factory automation and IIoT infrastructure applications (parking lots, control rooms, smart buildings, etc.). Designed to enable efficient operation and precise communication between operators and machines, FPM-7000 monitors feature a modular design, ean industrial-grade Full HD TFT LED LCD that supports support for both 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios and is equipped with projected capacitive (P-CAP) touch control, RS-232 and USB interfaces, and diverse video I/O, including VGA and DVI-D ports. The modular design e that enablesings system integrators to interchangeably combine the display monitors and PC modules into diverse configurations according to specific application needs. Users can also easily upgrade the core computing module and/or increase the display size without needing to send the whole system off site for reconfiguration. Moreover, when equipped with Advantech’s optional iLink technology, the FPM-7000 series can support real-time, long-distance (up to 100 m) data and video transmissions via USB to either a single client or multiple (up to 4) clients in clone mode. The FPM-7000 series also feature Advantech’s patented picture-in-picture (PiP) technology that allows them to be integrated with two box PCs for simultaneous dual display and dual input control capabilities. AdditionallyFurthermore, the die-cast magnesium alloy front panel is embedded with a Wi-Fi/NFC antenna for rapid signal recognition and ergonomic control. This incredible flexibility offers numerous performance and cost-saving advantages, including easy repairs/maintenance, cost-effective upgrades, and reduced total cost of ownership.

Modularized Design for Rapid Customization and Easy Maintenance 
With increasing market demands for product variation and mass customization, modularity is fast becoming the new standard for next-generation solutions. To address the need for efficient communication between monitors and control PCs, Advantech launched its new generation of modularized industrial monitors – the FPM-7000 series. The modular design allows the video I/O, which includes HDMI, DVI, VGA, and DP, to be flexibly configured for enhanced functionality. The display modules range between 12.1 and 21.5 inches in size and can be interchangeably combined into various configurations, drastically reducing component inventory and maintenance times by enabling immediate onsite replacement. The commonality of components allows customers to produce multiple products using the same solutions, thereby accelerating development and shortening the time to market, while also ensuring a long product lifecycle.

Supports iLink Long-Distance Data Transmission Technology  
When equipped with Advantech’s optional iLink technology (optional), the FPM-7000 series can support real-time, long-distance (up to 100 m) data and video transmissions via USB to either a single client or multiple (up to 4) clients in clone mode. This functionality enables customers to optimize the placement of PCs and operator panels during cabinet installation. Furthermore, the wiring has been simplified so only a single LAN CAT6 cable is required for all signal transmissions

PiP Technology Allows Integration with Two Box PCs 
Advantech’s FPM-7000 series also feature Advantech’s patented picture-in-picture (PiP) technology that allows them to be integrated with two box PCs for simultaneous dual display and dual input control capabilities. This reduces the number of monitors in the field, which lowers KVM costs and ensures easy monitoring for optimized management
