BECKHOFF Automation  offers a wide selection of fieldbus interfaces designed for open control technology.  

The CX5000 embedded PC series with its robust and compact magnesium housing offers a wide range of communication options through integrated I/O and system interfaces.  

Optional master/slave fieldbus and communication interfaces enable flexible integration in subordinate or higher-level systems. The dynamic control system can be operated within an extended temperature range of -25ºC to +60ºC.  

Offering the user an exceptional assortment of connectivity solutions, the CX5000 embedded PCs from Beckhoff feature a variety of system interfaces including 2 x Gigabit-Ethernet, 4 x USB and 1 x DVI-D as well as a direct I/O interface for Beckhoff bus terminals and EtherCAT terminals.  

The EtherCAT I/O system enables simple integration of unlimited fieldbus devices via communication terminals that range from PROFINET to IO link. Alternatively, fieldbus integration is also possible via the CX5000 embedded PC.  

Key features:

  • System can be optionally extended through master or slave fieldbus connections (EtherCAT, PROFIBUS, PROFINET RT, Ethernet/IP, CANopen) or communication interfaces (RS232, RS422/RS485)
  • Overall dimensions remain unchanged even with expansion options
  • EtherCAT slave application is a programmable, local device in an EtherCAT installation
  • DIN rail mounting for the embedded PC series makes it ideal for use as compact industrial PCs for PLC, motion control and visualisation applications
  • Device series CX5010, equipped with Intel Atom Z510, 1.1 GHz, and CX5020 with Intel Atom Z530, 1.6 GHz are characterised by very low power dissipation
  • Extended operating temperature range enables application in climatically harsh environments
  • Fanless embedded PCs have no rotating components, providing optimum stability and operational reliability
