Embedded PC series CX9000, CX9010, CX9020
The CX9000 and CX9010 Embedded PCs offer a compact and high-performance yet cost-effective PLC and Motion Control system for DIN rail installation. The main feature of these units is the energy-saving Intel® IXP420 CPU with XScale® technology and the Microsoft Windows CE operating system.
CX9000: Embedded PC with integrated EtherCAT Terminal interface
The CX9000 is a compact, DIN rail-mountable Ethernet controller with Intel® IXP420 with XScale® technology and 266 MHz clock frequency. The connection for the Beckhoff I/O systems is directly integrated in the CPU module. The CX9000 is available in one version for EtherCAT Terminals with E-bus. The CX9000 comprises the CPU, the internal flash memory with two configuration options, the main memory (RAM) (available in two different sizes), and NOVRAM as non-volatile memory. Two Ethernet RJ 45 interfaces are also part of the basic configuration. These interfaces are connected to an internal switch and offer a simple option for creating a line topology without the need for additional Ethernet Switches.
CX9010: Embedded PC with integrated EtherCAT Terminal interface
The only difference between the CX9010 and the CX9000 is the faster 533 MHz CPU. Like in the CX9000, it is an ARM- based Intel® CPU with XScale® technology, and Windows CE is used as the operating system. All system interfaces of the CX9010 are identical with the CX9000 interfaces. The CX9010 controller is always equipped with a heat sink, irrespective of whether a DVI/USB interface is installed. The CX9010 is fully software-compatible with the CX9000, while the CX9010 has higher memory capacity with 32 MB internal Flash and 128 MB RAM.
CX9020: Compact high-performance controller for PLC and Motion Control
The new CX9020 Embedded PC represents remarkably compact, state-of-the-art PC Control. The fanless CX9020 is equipped with a powerful 1 GHz ARM Cortex™ A8 processor and is suitable for a wide range of PLC and Motion Control applications in small- and medium-sized machines, systems or buildings. A multi-interface can be configured ex factory, if required, offering scope for numerous optional extensions, from an audio interface up to the connection of fieldbus masters or slaves.
