The module for all communication tasks.
The comX communication module has been designed to be integrated into automation devices e.g. robot controllers, PLCs or drives to add a network interface.
All communication tasks are executed autonomously within the module - irrespective of the processor of the target device. Process data is exchanged via a Dual-Port-Memory which is accessed either by an 8-/16-bit bus interface or a fast 50 MHz SPI interface.
comX supports all major real-time Ethernet protocols as master or slave and covers all network-specific demands in just one single module. To support a line topology, the module is equipped with two Ethernet ports. The communication protocol can be changed simply and reliably by loading the appropriate firmware and a software license for masters.
