FC9151 | Mini PCI Ethernet
The FC9x51 Mini PCI Card brings further Ethernet ports to the Industrial PC in a compact construction. The bus interface is not implemented on the fieldbus card, but separately in the respective housing (device-specific). The FC9x51 is available for Beckhoff Industrial PCs with Mini PCI option. Like the standard PCI cards, the Mini PCI variants are specifically optimised for fast controllers and real-time tasks:
- automatic baud rate setting according to IEEE 802.3u
- Ethernet and real-time Ethernet protocols, EtherCAT-ready
- full duplex at 10 and 100 Mbit/s
In combination with the Ethernet Mini PCI Cards, a third Ethernet port is available in the Industrial PC with 10 Mbit/s, 100 Mbit/s or 1000 Mbit/s. While the 100 Mbit/s Ethernet port offers optimum performance for all EtherCAT control tasks, a gigabit port is available for connecting the higher-level network.
The power of the Fieldbus Cards can be most easily seen in combination with the TwinCAT software PLC and NC. But other applications also benefit from the intelligent PCI cards that handle the fieldbus protocol efficiently on their own processors.
