Midrange embedded controller with PROFIBUS-DP interface
The Midrange Embedded Controller MEC2 PROFIBUS is suitable for industrial use in a critical environment.
The MEC2 PROFIBUS is built for rugged work environments and achieves forty times the performance compared to the previous model HECPM or HECPS respectively.
Furthermore, the basic system MEC2 can be equipped with a Profibus DP-V1 MiniPCI express card.
The use as Profibus master (up to 125 slaves) as well as Profibus slave 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 ipLinux, a Linux operating system customized to our applications.
The MEC2 PROFIBUS is suitable for mounting on a DIN-rail.
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.
