INTERFACES

Both the standardised PC interfaces and the current fieldbus interfaces support the high communication capability of our systems with network topologies. The Prime Cube® technology portfolio has various different connectivity options which not only enable the quick exchange of data and signals, but also the real-time properties in control applications.

 

Communication interfaces for the right connection

PCI Express (PCIe)

The interface is set up for the connection of chipset-peripheral functions such as graphics, sound, network or specific expansion cards. 

SATA

For the connection of mass storage devices with high data transfers between processor and memory; operating system-independent, hot-plug-ready.

RS232/COM

Traditional, serial interface for communication with periphery devices, such as PDAs, modems or also for processes controlled directly. 

USB

Universal interface for periphery devices, e.g. mouse, camera, ISDN adapter; can process impressive data speeds and hot-plug-ready.  

VGA/DVI-I

Popular monitor interface. Analogue (VGA) or digital (DVI) image and video transmission of RGB signals to LCD and TFT displays.

CAN

Serial bus for linking electronic control devices with CANopen as a protocol, preferable application in embedded systems.

DeviceNet

Open fieldbus standard for transfers with short and medium cycle times, across the board from field to control/command level.

PROFINET

Open industrial Ethernet standard, set-up for quick data communication across networks in combination with industrial IT functions. 

Ethernet 

Bus communication from fieldbus via Internet to IP-based networking; established in all speed ranges – with real-time behaviour.
