The GPC® 883 belongs to the CPUs 3 type size, and it is a very powerful control module capable of operating in stand alone mode or as an intelligent peripheral or remoted, in a wider telecontrol and/or aquisition network.

The GPC® 883 can be enclosed in a plastic container for a direct mounting on Omega Rils DIN 46277-1 and DIN 46277-3, thereby dispensing with the need of Rack and allowing a cheaper installation in the electrical control panel. Furthermore the card can be inserted into the same plastic rails that contains the expansion peripheral boards, obtaing in this way a single BLOCK element.

The GPC® 883 is based on the powerful and famous CPU 80C188ES AMD, code compatible with any PC, and it includes considerable hardware resources. The most interesting ones are the 8 lines of 12 bits high performances A/D Converter, the numerous TTL digital I/O lines and the CAN line. Its modularity and the remarkable hardware resources allow the GPC® 883 to easily solve even complex applications.

The card use is simplified by a wide range of software developement tools based on high level languages which allow to work at the best conditions using a standard PC. Noteworthy among these tools is the operating system GDOS 188 in conjunction with an efficient PASCAL romated compiler and the tools that allow to Romate the code compiled with standard Borland C Compiler.

Special care has been devoted to the application developing, by generating programs which allow remote symbolic debugger directly on the card and on board FLASH burning with user application program.

The GPC®883 is equipped with a series of standard Abaco® connectors allowing immediate use of all the available BLOCK I/O modules, or a direct management of local operator interfaces (KDx x24, QTP xxP) obtaining a notable cost reduction.

The Abaco® I/O BUS connector allows to drive directly the ZBR xxx and ZBT xxx cards and through ABB 03, ABB 05 and so on, it is possible to run all peripheral cards available on Abaco® BUS.
