Programmable Process Controllers


With over twenty years of electronics expertise, using proven technologies, we developed a product platform that utilized a commonality of ideas, form factors, I/O connections, programmability, and technologies that seemed to fit a majority of applications. Later in the process, we added additional functionality and a microprocessor and the RMP platforms were born. Even though the RMP series is ready to use right out of the box, we can use these product platforms as a starting point for a semi-custom board, which saves you money on R&D expenses because most of the work is already done for them. We can then simply add or subtract the technologies, I/Os, and functionality that you need or don’t require for your particular application. Read more...

Our base platforms have become very popular with customers in agriculture, food processing for motor and pump controlling. Due to that demand, we have expanded the line which now consists of four main board models and some variations. This provides you with a lot of flexibility and based on your need we can start with the platform that closely matches your requirements for the most cost effective solution. In addition, you can have confidence because our platforms are factory designed, manufactured, tested, and proven in actual daily operation.

Touch Screen Display Module

RMP + Display = Functionality


Operator Interface Control Panel
The Touch Screen Display Module can be interfaced with the RMP 300 and RMP 500 product platforms to create functionality.

Add a field-proven touchscreen display to your RMP 300 or RMP 500 Controllers. Our standard LCD design has a quick turn time, but can be customzied to meet your industry's requirements.

 

Bluetooth Sensor Series

Bluetooth Packaged Quick Use Sensors


Operator Interface Control Panel
In today's marketplace customers expect and look for connectivity in the products they use. Now there is a cost effective way to get your products talking: connect them to the internet, send data to the cloud, connect them to smart phones and tablets. Now you can add sensing capabilities to monitor temperature, pressure, humidity, acceleration, motion, impacts, and more, and access that data remotely.

The BTS series is revolutionary; for the first time, manufacturers and end users have a low-cost option for adding WiFi/Bluetooth sensing capabilities to their new and existing products. API can add sensors directly to the board or add remote sensor capability. Or incorporate the components into your existing boards so there is no need to add any additional assemblies.

 

 

Mobile Cycle Tester

Automated Test Equipment (ATE)


Operator Interface Control Panel
API Alliance would like to announce a new product offering: the Mobile Cycle Tester. Combining the RMP 500 and the Touch Screen Display Module, it's a stand alone, cycle testing unit that is small, light weight and portable. This product offers robust possibilities for field testing, or anywhere it's needed in your lab or on the production floor. Optional WiFi and Bluetooth functionality allow for Smart phone or tablet integration and remote reporting possibilities. This device allows production support engineers or production personnel to test products wherever they are.

 

 

Power Distribution Smart Control

Rugged and Reliable


Power Distribution Smart Control
Our compact, rugged and reliable relay controller is configured for 13.8-volt power distribution and has multiple optional communication interfaces such as CAN bus communications, USB storage/interface, and Bluetooth reporting and control. This product can be expected to perform reliably for a high number of cycles and to pass the rigorous testing required in some industries. Unlike the hand wired, soldered and labor intense relays, which have multiple potential fail points, this device is a ruggedized PCB with components mounted and hardwired to the board to ensure performance for many cycles.
