Product description:

The powerful all-in-one bus nodes UNIGATE IC2 are based on the ARM Cortex-M4 processor technology and thus offer a significant performance leap compared to the proven UNIGATE IC series from Deutschmann. The ready-to-use UNIGATE IC2 PROFIBUS module provides reliable PROFIBUS connectivity and can be quickly and easily installed in a terminal device or sensor system. 


Protocol connection of the UNIGATE IC2 module to the terminal device is implemented flexibly by script programming with the free Protocol Developer tool from Deutschmann Automation. With the UNIGATE IC2 embedded series, the script execution time can be reduced by a factor of 50 to 80, depending on the commands used, compared to predecessor products. With simple scripts, execution times in the microsecond range are possible. UNIGATE IC2 modules are also able to process large scripts very quickly.


Compared to UNIGATE IC, the fast UNIGATE IC2 embedded series achieves much higher transfer rates for communication via SPI or UART. The SPI bus currently achieves a transfer rate of 12 Mbit/s in master mode, 33 Mbit/s are being tested. In slave mode, 10 Mbit/s are achieved. The UART interface supports baud rates of up to 7.5 Mbaud.
