2-channel PC card PCI Express - DeviceNet/DeviceNet

Communication for PC-based automation
  • Two DeviceNet interfaces (Master or Slave) with only one PCI Express slot

  • Uniform user interface for all protocols and card formats

  • Easy integration due to a large variety of drivers

  • Data access via dual-port memory or direct memory access

  • Unique slot number, assignation via rotary switch

  • For an extended temperature range of up to 70 °C

PC cards in all formats for all protocols

The cifX PC card family is the unified standard supporting all Real-Time Ethernet and Fieldbus systems for PC-based automation.

The protocol stack is executed autonomously on the PC card and process data is exchanged with the host via Dual-Port-Memory or DMA (Direct Memory Access). Due to the common Hilscher Platform Strategy, all PC cards use the same driver and tools - irrespective of protocol and card format. The Hilscher netX technology makes it possible to realize all Real-Time Ethernet protocols with one single hardware. A communication protocol can be changed by loading a different firmware.

Always the right solution! Different cable lengths, M-12 connectors, additional NVRAM, extended temperature range, 2-channel cards, or detached network interfaces – numerous hardware options always offer the optimum solution for your application. Moreover, a wide range of device drivers as well as a C-Toolkit, which is free of charge, are available.

The PC-based automation market keeps evolving, and the Hilscher cifX PC card family keeps pace. The permanent extension of the cifX portfolio by new standards, protocols, and formats, e. g. M.2, mini PCIe halfsize, or CC-Link IE Field, our customers are always well-prepared to meet new market requirements.
