    Description

    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 exchange with the host is done via Dual-Port-Memory or DMA (Direct Memory Access). Thanks to the common Hilscher Platform Strategy all PC cards use the same driver and tools - independent of protocol and card format. Thanks to the netX technology there is exactly one hardware needed for the realization of all Real-Time Ethernet protocols. A change of the communication protocol is done by just 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 right solution for your application. On top, a wide range of device drivers and a C-Toolkit, free of charge, are available.

    The PC based automation is evolving and the Hilscher cifX PC card family keeps the pace. With continuous expansion for new standards, protocols and formats, as M.2, mini PCIe halfsize or CC-Link IE Field, customers are always prepared for new market demands.
