This is useful in applications where the number of PCI slots is limited, such as in compact box-type PCs and embedded computers. Models are available for two PROFIBUS channels, two DeviceNet channels, and two CANopen channels, as well as all combinations: PROFIBUS and DeviceNet; PROFIBUS and CANopen; and CANopen and DeviceNet. Due to loadable firmware and software licenses, the same hardware can alternatively be used as Double-Master or as Double-Slave. Common to all of the cards is an extended temperature range of -20 °C to +70 °C, as well as a reliable address allocation at the PCI bus via a rotary switch. All cards use the same application interface and data exchange will be done via dual-port-memory or DMA. A complete software package is included.
