The NI PCI-FBUS/2 connects FOUNDATION Fieldbus devices to standard desktop or industrial PCs. This interface, which connects to H1 (31.25 kbit/s) networks, is a 2-port configuration. NI-FBUS Communications Manager (CM) software for Windows is included with each interface. NI-FBUS CM provides a high-level interface to FOUNDATION Fieldbus devices without requiring in-depth knowledge of lower-level Fieldbus protocols. HMI and DCS applications can use NI-FBUS CM for data collection and control on the Fieldbus. With the PCI-FBUS/2, a PCI bus computer can act as the host in a FOUNDATION Fieldbus system.
