'C' Programmable Network Interface with Ethernet for Quantum

PTQ-ADMNET

Discontinued: No new product for sale. More Info

The 'C' Programmable Network Interface Module with Ethernet allows user-developed 'C' applications to operate over Ethernet on the Quantum platform. This is the ideal module to speed up custom ASCII data communications or to protect a proprietary algorithm. Applications using the ADM module include: Bar Code Scanner interface, legacy ASCII protocol connections, Terminal Port Emulation, Printer Driver, and customized serial communications.

Features and Benefits

The PTQ-ADMNET module acts as an input/output module between the Ethernet Explicit Messaging network, and the Quantum backplane. Data transfer from the Quantum processor is asynchronous from the actions on the Ethernet network. A 4000-word register space in the module exchanges data between the processor and the Ethernet network.

The PTQ-ADMNET module is a powerful communication interface for Quantum platform processors. Developed under license from Schneider Electric, the module incorporates proprietary backplane technology that enables powerful data access to the Quantum processor.

Applications

The PTQ-ADMNET module is the ideal solution for the many applications where Ethernet connectivity must be added to a Quantum system.

The ADMNET solution is a powerful module designed with both Client and Server support. This broad support enables the module to function as a data collection sub-master, or to be a powerful slave as a remote off an HMI host. Applications for the module are found in most industries, especially Manufacturing, Oil and Gas, Electrical Power and Food processing.
