Tiny interface for Ethernet

Jon Lawson

HMS Industrial Networks has now added the M.2 format to the IXXAT INpact PC-card range. The result is the smallest PC-interface for industrial Ethernet and Profibus on the market. 

The compact form makes INpact M.2 suitable for small and mobile devices, typically used for service, configuration, data analysis or process data visualisation purposes. INpact M.2 also fits well in modern embedded computer-based controllers, where it enables direct and easy connectivity to desired industrial networks.

As for all IXXAT INpact cards, the INpact M.2 comes with a comprehensive driver package for Windows, Linux, INtime and QNX, offering an easy and fast development process. A uniform programming interface allows customers to switch seamlessly between different INpact cards and protocols without changing the software.
