Communication module SPI - PROFIBUS DP Slave

The module for all communication tasks
  • Universal interface of the PROFIBUS DP Slave with network connector "onboard"

  • Allows a flexible positioning of the network connector

  • Host connection via dual-port memory or SPI

  • Function-compatible substitute for comX 10CA-DPS

The module for all communication tasks

The comX communication module is designed to be integrated into automation devices to provide drives, robot controllers, PLCs, etc. with a network interface. Communication tasks are all executed autonomously in the module - irrespective of the processor of the target device.

Process data is exchanged via a Dual-Port-Memory per access by an 8-/16-bit bus interface or a fast 50 MHz SPI interface.

comX supports all leading Real-Time Ethernet protocols as Master or Slave and meets all network-specific requirements in just one single module. To support a line topology, the module is equipped with two Ethernet ports. The communication protocol can be changed simply and reliably by loading the appropriate firmware and a software license for masters.

Due to the Hilscher network controller netX, a 10-year delivery guarantee is granted.
