The dSPACE SCALEXIO Fieldbus Solution lets you connect a SCALEXIO real-time system to various field bus types, such as EtherCAT and PROFIBUS. All interfaces are based on PCIe cards to provide the optimal bandwidth to the real-time model. Specially developed device drivers ensure real-time simulation capability.
The dSPACE SCALEXIO Fieldbus Solution lets you connect a SCALEXIO real-time system to various fieldbus types, such as EtherCAT and PROFIBUS. It is optimized and tested for frequency converter controlling. The EtherCAT master is based on a software stack which can use any free Ethernet port on your SCALEXIO system. The EtherCAT slave and the PROFIBUS master/slave are based on PCIe and CompactPCI Serial cards that can be plugged into your SCALEXIO system. Specially developed device drivers ensure sufficient real-time capability. Different licenses are required according to the type of fieldbus. You can use ConfigurationDesk for the configuration process.
