A new DeviceNet, Series B, universal PCI card can detect and adapt to varying voltage amounts to let users more easily connect industrial and personal computers over device-level networks.
The 1784-PCIDS universal card also offers users plug-and-play configuration and efficient data transfer. The acceptable voltage range of the card is based on the standard PCI bus commonly found in both industrial and personal computers. This card is compatible with Rockwell Automation RSLinx server software and includes scanner functions so users can control I/O with SoftLogix PC-based control software. Drivers are also available for Windows 2000/XP operating systems.
