Ixxat INpact Interface

Connect your PC to any industrial network!

 

Until now, it has been complicated to develop applications for several fieldbus or industrial Ethernet standards since different interface cards and application programming interfaces had to be used. Ixxat INpact now simplifies this thanks to its protocol-independent approach. Ixxat INpact is an "all in one package solution", including the PC interface card, the protocol processing and driver interfaces for your application.

Common Ethernet or dedicated version?
Click to learn more about the two variants...


The industrial Ethernet variants of the Ixxat INpact include two
complementary approaches to industrial Ethernet connectivity:

  • Dedicated versions 
    This boards come with a pre-installed network protocol for the selected Ethernet standard.
  • Common Ethernet (CE)
    The very flexible Common Ethernet solution allows to download the desired industrial Ethernet protocol into the standardized Ixxat INpact Ethernet hardware. This enables easy and cost-efficient switching between all available industrial Ethernet protocols, minimizing the need for keeping stock of different product versions.
