PCI/PCIe Fieldbus Cards

Beckhoff rounds off its range of fieldbus components with the PCI-based PC Fieldbus Cards for Lightbus, PROFIBUS, CANopen, DeviceNet, SERCOS interface, Ethernet and the PCI Express v1.1 cards for PROFIBUS, CANopen and Ethernet. The cards were specifically developed for fast controllers and real-time tasks such as drive position control. To enable universal application, the interface cards are fitted with either one or two fieldbus channels. The Ethernet cards offer a maximum of four channels. The fieldbus cards can optionally be equipped with non-volatile memory (NOVRAM), hence enabling the fail-safe storage of data. Features:

  • fast data exchange through short cycle times (e.g. EtherCAT: down to 12.5 μs)
  • process data communication can either be free running, synchronised, synchronised with a delay, or equidistant
  • powerful parameter and diagnostics interfaces
  • freely configurable bus management for every device

PCI Fieldbus Cards

PCI Fieldbus Cards: The PC Fieldbus Cards are an intelligent interface generation for maximum performance from fieldbus to PCI bus.

Mini PCI Fieldbus Cards

Mini PCI Fieldbus Cards: The Mini PCI cards offer compact fieldbus know-how and enhance the PC Fieldbus Card range.

Ethernet Switches

Ethernet Switches: The switches in industrial design relay incoming Ethernet frames to the destination ports. In full duplex mode, they prevent collisions.

EtherCAT components

EtherCAT components: EtherCAT junctions and media converters in IP 20 or IP 67 protection complement the range of infrastructure components.
