Ixxat INpact Interfaces
Connect your PC to any industrial network!
Until now, it has been complicated to develop applications for several fieldbus or industrial Ethernet standards since different interface cards and application programming interfaces had to be used. Ixxat INpact now simplifies this thanks to its protocol-independent approach. Ixxat INpact is an “all in one package solution“, including the PC interface card, the protocol processing and driver interfaces for your application.
One for all
One board for all major industrial Ethernet networks and PROFIBUS
Available as dedicated protocol variant or Common Ethernet variant – allowing switching of the protocol on the fly
Different form factors enable easy integration into existing environments
Easy switching between protocols without adaptation of the application through a standardized API
Powerful hardware for demanding real-time applications
Based on approved and continuously maintained Ixxat and Anybus technologies
PROFINET Fiber Optic
Common Ethernet or dedicated version?
The industrial Ethernet variants of the Ixxat INpact include two
complementary approaches to industrial Ethernet connectivity:
- Dedicated versions
This boards come with a pre-installed network protocol for the selected Ethernet standard.
- Common Ethernet (CE)
The very flexible Common Ethernet solution allows to download the desired industrial Ethernet protocol into the standardized Ixxat INpact Ethernet hardware. This enables easy and cost-efficient switching between all available industrial Ethernet protocols, minimizing the need for keeping stock of different product versions.
