DOWNPerformance Overview
DOWNTechnical Details

HECPM is a PC based embedded controller that has been designed in particular for industrial applications. It contains no moving parts, its low power consumption means that a fan is not needed.

The basic version of HECPM is fitted with a PC/104 CPU module and has four serial RS232 interfaces and Ethernet adapters. Unlike HEC, HECPM also has an additional Profibus DP Master interface.

The Profibus DP Master has a 7kB dual port IO memory, up to 3.5kB can be used for each data direction. It supports the connection of up to 125 slaves.

A CompactFlash with an excellent 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 ports and a network controller indicator show the current operation states. A CPU LED shows the different software operating modes.
