NPE X400 - Programmable automation controller
NPE X400 is a series of industrial computers which you can easily adapt to your needs by choosing from the available options. Upgraded NPE X400 industrial computer series use latest Processor Module, powered by Quad-core Cortex-A53 1.2GHz processor. The module increase the device’s performance up to ten times, maintaining low power consuption and optimal price of this solution. NPE features industrial protocol support, e.g. Modbus, M-Bus, SNMP, MQTT and more.
Ready-to-use programmable automation controller
The NPE X400 platform has a variety of functionalities and is easy to configure at the same time – it combines ease of use, characteristic of simple devices with the possibilities of embedded computers.
State of the art performance reached with Quad-Core Cortex A53 1.2 GHz fanless processor, allows using NPE X500 device for specific application, like smartgrid remote control

NPE X400 can perform the following functions:
NPE X400 telemetry module offers you huge opportunities of registering and data access, using built-in input/output interfaces and communication channels, such as:
Due to flexible configuration, the device can operate as a protocol and interface converter:
In addition, due to the possibilities of the Linux operating system, each user can create their own protocols with the use of the available SDK.
The design of the NPE X400 allows for trouble-free operation in industrial conditions. It has a fanless case and is characterised by high resistance to external conditions and high reliability. The Linux system provides stable operation of the device.
NPE X400 is a multichannel telemetry module, providing constant uninterrupted access to data. It enables you to save the results of measurements and parameter values of connected devices - data can be saved to internal memory. You can also save data to internal and external databases.
NPE X400 can generate alarm signals and provide information on current parameter values. Built-in LTE/3G/GPRS modem enables wireless communication.
NPE X400 can operate as a typical PLC. The telemetry module can be programmed in ladder logic, which is easy to configure and allows for a quick start of an installation.
Due to the Linux operating system - NPE X400 is a stable central unit of an automation system.
With a built-in GSM modem, NPE X400 offers advanced functions and can be configured as an industrial modem and a router operating in GPRS, EDGE network as well as in 3G mobile network. You can easily get a backup connection mode and define routing.
You can build a VPN with NPE X400. You can access other devices with one telemetry module with a defined public IP. The VPN guarantees high security of data transmission.
3G technology provides higher speed and lower latency at packet data transmission.
Due to digital I/O and analog inputs, NPE X400 can successfully replace expansion modules.
The NPE X400 device allows:
- visualisation at the monitoring point
- remote control via a Web browser
- transfer values via any user protocol (e.g. Modbus, SNMP).
With a built-in GSM modem, the NPE X400 industrial computer can operate as a notify module: it can send alerts when defined parameter values are exceeded (e.g. temperature, humidity).
You can easily and quickly configure the content of a message which is send instantly when the value is exceeded.
System supervisor will immediately receive SMS or e-mail notification.
GPS receiver allows to use the satellite navigation system. The system is widely used in vehicle monitoring (e.g. transport, railway industry or municipal communication). It allows to synchronize time in extensive industrial networks. It is also used to set a route for industrial machines.
- iMod Platform Support. NPE X400 can easily work with iMod telemetry modules and in nearest future with iMod X400.
- iModCloud Ecosystem. A combination of a cloud service with a web user interface and special industrial devices that are fully manageable remotely. Core iModCloud Ecosystem elements are iMod controllers and iModCloud service. iMod controllers and iModCloud service together stand as a complete solution.
iModCloud - Dedicated Cloud Service
iModCloud - a dedicated cloud service - allows you to visualize and control parameters of any number of devices via a web browser. Now iModCloud expands to support NPE X500 devices.
With iModCloud you can control all your facilities via any mobile device, register data and share selected information with other users.
