The CP 5603 is a PCI-104 card (Universal Key 5V/3.3V) with microprocessor allowing SIMATIC PCs with PCI-104 slot to be connected to PROFIBUS up to 12 Mbit/s. The new CP 5603 supplements the product range of the PROFIBUS PC modules by a further product in the embedded platform environment (such as "SIMATIC Microbox" and "SIMATIC S7 modular Embedded Controller")
It is function-compatible with the CP 5613 A2. New is the PG/PC slot technology for PCI-104. This allows the communications processor CP 5603 to be used in embedded computer platforms with PCI-104 connection technology, e.g. SIMATIC S7 modular Embedded Controller (S7-mEC) and SIMATIC Microbox.
