The PCI Express communication module

The universal communication module netJACK with its PCI Express interface addresses in particular the embedded market with high-performance CPUs like Intel Atom®. Alternatively, there are versions with a traditional dual-port memory and a fast serial SPI interface.

All types have the compact design of a closed IP 40 module which can be mounted without using tools. Additional costs for the device will not arise because connector and mounting rails are designed as contact areas and cut-outs on the baseboard.

netJACK can be mounted quickly and easily right before shipment - or even by the end customer.

With netJACK customers can realize the full range of communication solutions, e.g. for drives, HMI or ident systems. At the same time, additional functionalities as PLC, visualization or individual applications are possible. For customer-specific requirements, Hilscher offers a cost-optimized Design and Production Service.

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