A560 - Real-Time Loop Controller


  • Ethernet interface supporting TCP/IP and UDP
  • Allows over 100 devices to be connected to a standard PC through a single Ethernet port
  • High performance on-board A60 processors and memory for data buffering and real-time calculations
  • Built-in hardware interlock system for safety-critical systems
  • xml scripting allows coordinated data output and input across multiple devices


  • Applications that require real-time deterministic control of multiple distributed devices and/or realtime data processing
  • Applications that require robust safety interlocking
  • Large-scale, high-performance fiber optic loop systems
  • Data acquisition and control systems for noisy environments
  • Data acquisition and control systems that must communicate across high-voltage gaps

Fiber-Optic Communications

Measurement data is transmitted through state-of-the-art fiber-optic cables. The benefits are numerous compared to other forms of data transmission.

  • Fiber-optics are immune to electrical interference
  • Minimal attenuation of light through fibers
  • Fast messaging over enormous distances
  • Radiation hard fiber materials

EPICS Support

Integrate device data collection and configuration into an EPICS system, without writing a single line of code using IG2.

  • Runs on Windows 7/8/10 and Debian Linux
  • Change PV names with simple XML configuration
  • Connect to multiple Pyramid devices at once
  • Add custom scale factors and offsets on a PV basis
  • Never have to recompile
  • Professional Pyramid support for bugs and features
