PC Cards

cifX PC cards are the easiest and fastest way to integrate PC-based devices into an automated environment. Classic application examples can be found in industrial PCs for plant or local machine control, HMI (Human Machine Interface) panels for machine monitoring and operation, as well as specific solutions such as optical inspection systems, test benches, simulation systems, and robotic solutions. Our market-leading PC card portfolio includes all relevant form factors – from the smallest PC cards in the automation market for compact devices to classic formats such as 19-inch systems.

The cifX PC cards can be used both as master and slave and have multi-protocol capability, allowing you to map all leading fieldbus and Real-Time Ethernet protocols. The entire protocol stack is processed on our proprietary netX chips. The uniform platform strategy means that all card formats and protocols use the same drivers, configuration tools and a standardized API, can be deployed flexibly, and are quickly integrated. A wide range of hardware options also offers you tailored solutions for any environment.

PCI

The PCI bus is an established standard in automation and is widely used in many areas. Our PCI cards can be used universally for all fieldbus and Real-Time Ethernet protocols.

PCI Express

PCI Express is the successor to PCI technology and offers an increased data throughput. Our PCI Express cards can be used universally for all fieldbus and Real-Time Ethernet protocols.

Compact PCI

Compact PCI is the industrial version of the PCI bus, offering impressively high data rates in a robust design. Our compact PCI cards enable you to handle numerous fieldbus and Real-Time Ethernet protocols.

Low Profile PCI Express

The low-profile PCI Express PC cards are designed for PCIe systems of limited height. They can be used universally for numerous fieldbus and Real-Time Ethernet protocols.

Mini PCI Express

Mini PCI Express is the successor to the mini PCI format and offers an increased data throughput. Our mini PCI Express cards can be used universally for all fieldbus and Real-Time Ethernet protocols.

Mini PCIe halfsize

Our mini PCIe halfsize cards have an impressive, extremely compact design. They enable you to implement slave applications for numerous fieldbus and Real-Time Ethernet protocols.

M.2

The M.2 format is extremely compact and versatile. Among other benefits, it offers you PCI Express interface technologies for master and slave applications for numerous fieldbus and Real-Time Ethernet protocols.

Mini PCI

Mini PCI is the miniature format of the established PCI cards. It is used especially in embedded systems or compact box IPCs. They can be used universally for all fieldbus and Real-Time Ethernet protocols.

PC/104

The stackable PC/104 format is mainly used in complex systems. Our PC/104 cards can be used universally for all fieldbus and Real-Time Ethernet protocols.

PCI 104

PCI 104 is the successor to the stackable PC/104 technology and is mainly used in complex systems. Our PCI 104 cards can be used universally for all fieldbus and Real-Time Ethernet protocols.
