cifX PC cards are the easiest and fastest way to integrate PC-based devices into an automated environment. Classic application examples can be found in industrial PCs for plant or local machine control, HMI (Human Machine Interface) panels for machine monitoring and operation, as well as specific solutions such as optical inspection systems, test benches, simulation systems, and robotic solutions. Our market-leading PC card portfolio includes all relevant form factors – from the smallest PC cards in the automation market for compact devices to classic formats such as 19-inch systems.
The PCI bus is an established standard in automation and is widely used in many areas. Our PCI cards can be used universally for all fieldbus and Real-Time Ethernet protocols. More.
PCI Express is the successor to PCI technology and offers an increased data throughput. Our PCI Express cards can be used universally for all fieldbus and Real-Time Ethernet protocols. More.
Gateways are used for transferring and converting data between 2 industrial automation networks of the same or different type. They offer a simple and cost-effective solution for any type of data conversion, whether used with Fieldbus, Ethernet, or Real-Time Ethernet systems, or a combination thereof. This enables the efficient integration of devices and plant components into existing structures and the connection of systems and network components. Hilscher's wide range of gateways offers a suitable solution for every application, from cost-optimized devices for simple and dedicated implementation to flexible high-end devices for demanding and individual conversion tasks.
The netHOST LAN gateway is used to control your fieldbus and Real-Time Ethernet systems through the conventional Ethernet. More.
