Automatica Hall B5, Booth 310
With the CIFX 2 channel cards Hilscher offers the possibility to operate two fieldbus channels independently of each other - and this with only one PCI slot. Especially with compact box PCs of the latest generation, PCI slots are sparsely available and an 2 channel card is an advantage. An extended temperature range up to + 70 ° C for the cards and the unique address assignment on the PCI bus via a rotary switch are further features.
The user can choose from any combination of Profibus, CAN open and Devicenet fieldbuses. With loadable firmware and software licenses, the same hardware can be used either as a double master or as a double slave. All 2 channel cards have the same user interface and the data exchange to the host is via dual-port memory or DMA. A complete software package is always included.
