MEN F204

3U M-Module carrier board for universal I/O on the CompactPCI bus

Manufacturer: duagon MEN
MEN F204

The F204 is a 3U M-Module carrier board for universal I/O on the CompactPCI® bus. It allows high flexibility in applications such as data acquisition or process control.

One M-Module may be installed on the F204, which needs only one slot on the CompactPCI® bus. M-Modules are screwed tightly on the board and require no separately mounted transition panel.

The F204 offers developers instant access to more than 70 different M-Modules for I/O in fields such as process I/O, measurement, instrumentation, motion control, communication, and development.
