The ADLINK PCI-7856 is a PCI interface card which offers two ports for Motionnet and HSL systems for distributed motion and I/O in machine automation applications.
HSL technology allows thousands of I/O points to be scanned at the millisecond-level in real time by using mater-slave architecture. Commercial Ethernet cables with RJ45 connector are used for simplified setup of the HSL slaves modules as close as possible to sensor devices which results in a dramatic reduction of wiring. System integrators can benefit from HSL network because it integrates discrete I/O and analog I/O modules. This local network features rapid response, real-time scanning.
