CompactPCI® Serial • Real-Time Ethernet & Fieldbus Module Carrier
On the process control level, the IoT speaks many idioms. With the SF1-STUDIO,
EKF offers a versatile solution to this problem. The CompactPCI® Serial carrier board
accommodates up to two mezzanine I/O adapter modules based on the PCI Express® Mini Card
form factor, suitable for real-time industrial Ethernet and fieldbus applications.
Up to four front panel I/O connectors are available for direct attachment
of a variety of machines and systems.
The SF1-STUDIO is optimized for Hilscher real-time Ethernet & fieldbus modules.
Many popular protocols are supported. With respect to Ethernet, mezzanine modules
are available for EtherCAT, EtherNet/IP, Open-Modbus/TCP, POWERLINK, PROFINET IO,
Sercos, and VARAN. In addition, there are also I/O modules disposable for the
classic interfaces Profibus DP, CANopen, DeviceNet and CC-Link. A suitable
configuration of ports allows applications as bridge or router.
The SF1-STUDIO requires a single PCI Express® lane from the backplane, passed over
across the backplane connector P1 to the on-board PCIe Gen2 packet switch (upstream port).
Three downstream ports are connected to the PCIe Mini Card sockets,
and the optional on-board USB host controller.
The SF1-STUDIO is equipped with two PCI Express® Mini Card connectors according to
the PCI-SIG Mini Card electromechanical specification Rev. 2.0, for usage with
appropriate industrial I/O modules. A front panel assembly is available to each I/O module,
providing the suitable I/O connectors.
