In spite of the compact enclosure the F3 base unit offers all interfaces known from the PC technology like Ethernet and USB. Operator panels are connected over DVI/VGA or via the Automata Panel Interface, a solution to transmit video, touchscreen, USB and power over a single cable.
The integrated IO bus allows the local or remote connection of F3 IO modules. For high sophisticated applications a sercos III master interface is available. 512 KB NVRAM and a CAN interface complement the list of important features for the application of the F3 as a automation controller.
The F3 base unit is programmed with CoDeSys in IEC-61131, as operating system Windows® CE is used. Other operating systems are available on demand.
