HECPM is a PC based
embedded controller that has been designed in particular for industrial
applications. It contains no moving parts, its low power consumption means that
a fan is not needed.
The basic version of
HECPM is fitted with a PC/104 CPU module and has four serial RS232
interfaces and Ethernet adapters. Unlike HEC, HECPM also has an
additional Profibus DP Master interface.
The Profibus DP Master has
a 7kB dual port IO memory, up to 3.5kB can be used for each data direction. It
supports the connection of up to 125 slaves.
A CompactFlash with an
excellent MTBF > 4,000,000 h is used for storage.
Integrated LEDs offer a
number of diagnostic functions. A power indicator, a send and receive indicator
for the RS232 ports and a network controller indicator show the current
operation states. A CPU LED shows the different software operating
Graphical comparison of IPCOMM gateways with regard to the maximum number of information changes/s at 100% throughput and the maximum number of node variables that can be managed, processed and transmitted.
