Powerful DeviceNet Interfaces for PCs

The module DN-PCI/331 is a PC board designed for the PCI bus. It uses a 68331 microcontroller, which cares for the local DeviceNet data management. Data is stored in the local SRAM. The DeviceNet interface of the board meets the requirements of the DeviceNet specification 2.0. The interface is electrically isolated from the other potentials by means of optocouplers.

Software Support

The firmware for the master/scanner is stored locally in the Flash EPROM and can be dynamically updated by download. Drivers are available for Windows 32/64 bit systems. A VxWorks driver is available on request.


Also available for CAN/CANopen®: CAN-PCI/331
