Beckhoff Automation Introduces CX9010 Embedded PC
MINNEAPOLIS, October 24, 2007 - To increase processing power in some of the smallest DIN rail mounted Embedded PCs available, Beckhoff Automation has introduced the new CX9010.
With the previous introduction of the CX9000 Embedded PC series, Beckhoff repackaged PC-based control technology into its most compact form - a Bus Coupler-sized housing. The new CX9010 differs from the CX9000, with a higher performance processor and larger memory configuration. The CX9010 features an energy efficient Intel IXP420 processor with XScale technology and 533 MHz clock frequency. As a solid state device, the CX9010 features internal flash memory as the boot and memory medium and a heat sink for cooling.
In combination with Beckhoff Bus Terminal I/O or EtherCAT I/O Terminals, the CX9010 Embedded PC becomes a compact PC controller for PLC and Motion Control applications. The CPU module provides a direct connection to Beckhoff I/O systems. The CX9010 is equipped with high-performance software in the form of the Windows CE operating system and TwinCAT automation software.
In its basic configuration, the CX9010 includes the CPU, internal flash memory, main memory (RAM), NOVRAM as non-volatile memory and one switched Ethernet port with two external RJ 45 interfaces. Additional Compact-Flash, DVI/USB or serial RS232/RS422/RS485 interfaces are available.
