FC3121, FC3122 | PCIe PROFIBUS

In TwinCAT, all functions are conveniently available. Other applications also benefit from the diverse features: general drivers for different Windows versions and convenient configuration tools are included in the TwinCAT I/O software package. High-level language programs use the DLL, Visual Basic applications the ActiveX interface. Applications with OPC interface can access process data and parameters via an OPC server.

The PCIe fieldbus cards offer the possibility of optionally adding a NOVRAM card (FC600x). The fieldbus cards automatically recognise the connection of these memory cards, which can also be plugged into the card later. The FC600x cards offer simple data backup on the NOVRAM memory and are available from 128 to 512 kbyte.
