Description

The Easylon Mini PCIe Socket Interface+ realizes an ISO/IEC 14908 compliant interface in the design of a PCIe "Full-Mini Card with bottom side keep outs (F2)". It uses the USB interface of the Mini PCIe slot and thus implements a LON USB interface. The module can be used in devices offering a Mini PCIe socket.

As an Easylon Interface+ the network interface provides up to eight logical driver interfaces thus realizing the parallel access of several applications to the network either in MIP or LNS compatible mode.

Connection to the control network is either made by a TP/FT-10 transceiver with FT-X2 or by EIA-485 coupling. Service and traffic LED signals are available via the socket connector; a service button has to be connected externally. Status, error and service LEDs are on board. In the TP/FT-10 version the network interface is galvanically separated from the Mini PCI Express ground.
