Notebook computer industry PROFIBUS Fieldbus 32-bit PCMCIA card


    CP5512 FOURSTAR Electronic communication card is designed for notebook computers designed Isolated PROFIBUS/MPI/PPI/FWL industrial field bus communication cards, iCoupler isolation using magnetic coupling device to replace the optocoupler, small size, wide temperature range, RS485 port in an increase of anti-lightning and surge protection circuit since the resumption of over-current protection, Industrial application of the chips used in a wide temperature range, For the realization of notebook computers and network SIMATIC between PROFIBUS/MPI/PPI/FWL communications connection.

    CP5512 FOURSTAR Electronic card inserted outside the notebook's PCMCIA card slot (commonly known as: generation of cards, 54 mm card), Its function and application of 100% with Siemens CP5512 card (No. Siemens products: 6GK1 551-2AA00), and has the following new features:

1、RS485 adapter card use and the integration into one design, small size, simple to use, and RS485 port to increase anti-lightning and surge protection circuit.

2、The computer can work when random charged plug, plug-and-play. Since the card and adapter into one, it does not exist as Siemens CP5512 when the adapter card from the plug on the live easily damaged when a hidden danger.

3、CP5512 FOURSTAR market to support the use of the conversion Express to PCMCIA adapter card, can have the Express slot (commonly known as: second-generation cards, 34 mm card, E cards, T card, gun card, etc.) on the use of laptop computers .

4、CP5512 FOURSTAR market to support the use of the PCI to PCMCIA adapter card conversion, can be used on desktop computers, and Siemens CP5611 and CP5611 A2 card functions exactly the same.

Operating System:

CP5512 and CP5512E can run Windows2K/Server 2008/XP/Vista and other 32 -bit operating system does not support 64 -bit operating systems. Does not support Windows 7 (32/64 bit) operating system.

CP5512 scene with connectivity devices:

    Siemens and PC Adapter and PC Adapter USB Adapter different, CP5512 can be connected to a lot of equipment at the scene of the bus ports, such as Siemens S7-200/300/400PLC touch-screen or the PPI/MPI/PROFIBUS port, EM277, ET200, such as on-site bus A variety of equipment PROFIBUS/MPI/PPI/FWL field bus port.

    CP5512 fieldbus devices to connect with the need to use special PROFIBUS cables or extension of the MPI cable (Siemens products, for: 6ES7 901-0BF00-0AA0), the cable wiring diagram is as follows:
