Acceed included a range of high-performance, robust and fanless industrial controllers through the new series AVA-5500 AI platform. Equipped with 6th and 7th generation Intel i7 processors and the Nvidia Quadro graphics processor P5000 MXM 3.1, the AVA-5520 model provides a reliable, high-performance basis for industrial video and graphics analysis applications. Eight M12-GbE ports, four of which include PoE, serve for the connection of high-resolution cameras on the front side. In addition, four serial DB-9 sockets, four USB 3.0 ports and two 1000 base T RJ45 Ethernet interfaces are available, also readily accessible on the front side of the compact full-metal casing at any time.
Different AVA-5500 series models are already used in the field of railway construction, automatic inspection of tracks with measurement trains at high travel speed, and for video monitoring station concourses and station platforms. In their interplay with corresponding software and sophisticated analysis algorithms, these systems are able to generate warnings and alarms automatically in order to provide early information pertaining to potential dangers.
Local graphics output is made available in high resolution via two CPU display ports, four GPU display ports and a DVI connector. The working memory can be configured up to 32 GB, and two internal SATA slots for 2.5” hard drives are available for local storage media. An externally accessible CFast base and an M.2 base (2280) are set up as further storage options. Radio modules for WLAN and mobile communication (LTE, UMTS, GSM) can be integrated via the two internal mini PCIe slots, each with a respective USIM slot. Respectively four insulated digital inputs and outputs as well as connections for audio communication round-off the equipment.
The connection for the 12 VDC power supply and for M12 industrial plugs is located on the reverse side. Six LEDs on the front side, of which three can be configured customer-specifically, allow fast function control and diagnosis. Using Windows 10 and Ubuntu 16.04 as operating systems, its power consumption at 100% load of the CPU and graphics card P5000 is of 177 W.
