Midrange embedded controller with PROFINET-IO interface

DOWNPerformance Overview
DOWNTechnical Details

The Midrange Embedded Controller MEC2 PROFINET is suitable for industrial use in a critical environment. The MEC2 PROFINET is built for rugged work environments and shows an impressive performance. Furthermore, the basic system MEC2 can be equipped with a Profinet IO MiniPCI express card. The use as Profinet IO server is possible. The controller comes with a fanless Intel Atom processor, extra low power consumption and an industrial temperature range of -20 to +50.

The device is equipped with four serial and two 1 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces as standard. The serial interfaces are software configurable as RS-232/RS-422/RS-485 interface.

The IPCOMM hardware systems are delivered with a Linux operating system customized to our applications.

The MEC2 PROFINET is suitable for mounting on a DIN-rail.
