The AutoMax ® PC3000 Solution

Integrated Drive System Control

AutoMax PC3000:

Flexible. Powerful. Functional.

The AutoMax PC3000 processor is the newest powerful combination of controls in the Reliance® AutoMax family of control products. This unique design solution reduces the entry-level costs of distributed drive control, significantly extending the networking and interfacing capabilities of motor-control applications. With the PC3000, you get connectivity with the entire Reliance "3000" family of standard drives (GV3000 and FlexPak® 3000), plus: · Exceptional design flexibility, with IBM® PC open architecture and plug-and-play modularity · Exceptional power, with an AutoMax 7010-equivalent processor, a high-speed deterministic DCS-NET, and an Allen-Bradley remote I/O (RIO) master in a single PC board · Exceptional functionality, with a WindowsTM 95 programming environment and three distinct programming languages · Exceptional affordability, with all the reliability of the AutoMax Distributed Control System (DCS) family

Conveniently Configured For PC Workstation Or Industrial Applications

The AutoMax PC3000 processor is ideal for PC workstation drive system supervision. Since the PC3000 uses the ISA bus interface for power only, the workstation processor is free to run man-machine interface (MMI), operator interface (OI), or other software without adversely affecting system performance. System capabilities can be further extended using an optional board with two serial ports. An alternative packaged version encloses the PC3000 processor, a serial interface card, a power supply, and a fan in a panel-mounted industrial chassis for industrial control applications.

The AutoMax Family: A Powerful Combination Of Controls

The AutoMax DCS family was founded in 1984, with the introduction of the DCS integrated drive system controller. From its inception, AutoMax adopted a modular approach to drive control, offering users the flexibility to expand and adapt their distributed power and control systems to meet everchanging application requirements. Today's AutoMax hardware and software solutions encompass a vast array of speed, power, and memory capabilities for multifunctional AC and DC industrial drive regulation and control, including the most critical position and motion control applications. The entire line of AutoMax products is designed to interconnect with multivendor remote I/O systems, networks, and interfaces, including performancematched Allen-Bradley and Reliance AC and DC motors and drives. As the newest addition to the AutoMax DCS product family, the PC3000 offers small- to medium-sized applications, unhappy with the rigidity of programmable logic controllers, an affordable, flexible, integrated control alternative.
