DL-PCIe Hardware Specifications


Data Highway Plus (DH+) OR (DH-485) PC PCI EXPRESS BUS Interface Card
The DH+ / DH-485 Card, is a PCI Express based module which allows PCI Express bus computers or OEM based applications access to AB's DH+ Or DH485 networks. The Interface Card allows existing 1770-KF2, or 1770-KF3 and DF1 Drivers to run at the PC's PCI Express bus speed. This will allow MMI, HMI, SCADA equipment, and other computer applications access to any DH+ or DH485 node including PLC's and SLC's.

All settings are accomplished using Dip Switches or an easy to use Windows based Configuration Program over the bus. More over the card adds to your PC a general purpose RS232 9 Pin DSUB Serial Com Port.
