Compact controller mountable on a DIN-rail - specially suited for decentral applications

DOWNTechnical Details

HEC is a PC-based embedded controller especially designed for industrial applications. It contains no rotating parts, thanks to its extremely low power demand no fan is needed.

In its basic version, HEC is fitted with a PC/104 module, it has four serial RS232 interfaces and Ethernet adapters.

A CompactFlash (MTBF ≥ 4,000,000 h) is used for storage.

Integrated LEDs offer a number of diagnostic functions. A power indicator, a send and receive indicator for the RS232 interfaces and a network controller indicator show the current operation states. A CPU LED shows the different software conditions.

A CAN controller can be fitted directly in the PC/104 CPU module. In addition HEC can be upgraded with any PC/104 module, ensuring easy integration in any field bus system.
