pATLAS Features


  • Flexibility – based on the flexible hardware and software (firmware) organization, with a full compliance with leading industrial and RFC (Request for Comments) standards, pATLAS provides high flexibility in implementation, and an easy upgrade and downgrade during the exploitation.
  • Scalability – based on the modular hardware architecture, and software (firmware) support to a variety of hardware configurations ranging from a single module to the cluster of networked pATLAS units.
  • Connectivity – based on the implemented architecture and firmware support, which provide multiple ways for reliable communication, as well as full TCP/IP network support with full implementation of ISO OSI Referent model, and leading communication standards.
  • Modularity – based on the modular hardware and firmware structures, with implementation of leading industrial and RFC (Request for Comments) standards, providing easy module upgrades, updates and replacements.
  • Reliability – based on the redundant system architecture: dual, master/slave, hot/stand-by, and others, with a full operational switchover in the case of failures (automatic or manual failovers).
  • Self diagnostics – based on the continuous online self monitoring and failure predictions and diagnostics.
  • Maintainability – easy maintenance and module replacements based on inherent system modularity and available powerful maintenance tools.
  • Availability – high system availability based on high inherent reliability and an easy maintenance.
  • System customization to user needs - based on the openness for specific project requirements, met by introducing new or by modifying available basic functions.
  • Robustness - based on the specific and proved hardware designs, as a result of huge accumulated experience, standard compliances, and system certification.  Small size makes pATLAS easy for mechanical, temperature and EMI protections.
  • Compactness – based on small size pATLAS components/modules, resource distribution, advanced housing and cabling, and low power consumption.
  • Efficiency (Effectiveness) - based on the powerful processor and processing hardware and accompanying software, initial small capacity and easy adoption into real process needs.
  • Capacity - based on easy local networking and clustering of multiple pATLAS units into a larger ATLAS system.
  • Local and remote control capabilities - based on the inherent RTU and programmable PLC functionalities, which make pATLAS suitable for autonomous local control, and/or participation in larger distributed and/or hierarchical control systems.
  • Economy - based on the dedicated system design, and easy customization on per needed basis.
  • Environment Protection – this is “green equipment” that fully respects EPA recommendations, and requires minimal power consumption.
