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.
