Hilscher has enhanced its CIFX PC-Card family with special models with integrated NVRAM for secure data storage. Especially for compact IPC or HMI terminals, these cards are available in a ?Low Profile PCI Express? and ?Mini PCI Express? format.
In addition to a fieldbus or Real-Time Ethernet communication, the user can freely access a 128kByte non-volatile memory. Thus, in the event of a voltage loss, the key data will remain available.
The cards and the entire CIFX family are also available for an extended temperature range. Due to loadable firmware and software licenses, the same hardware can alternatively be used as master or slave. For Real-Time Ethernet, 11 different protocol variants can be used on the same PC-Card.
