Two times Fieldbus with just one PCI slot
With Hilscher’s CIFX 2-channel cards, users have the possibility to realize two independent fieldbus communications in just one PCI slot. Especially in compact Box-PCs, the number of PCI slots is rather limited and a 2-channel card has significant advantages.
The user can choose from any combination of the leading fieldbus systems: PROFIBUS, CANopen, or DeviceNet. Due to loadable firmware and software licenses, the same hardware can alternatively be used as Double-Master or as Double-Slave.
All 2-Channel cards use the same application interface and data exchange will be done via Dual-Port-Memory or DMA. A complete software package is always included in the scope of delivery.
