B&R CP150 features standby mode for off-highway and agricultural vehicles.
B&R CP150 introduced its X90 CP150 compact controller, which features a standby mode that provides the option of restarting a machine or vehicle immediately. When a machine is in standby, the application remains active and monitors the machine to immediately switch back to operating mode after a wake-up event triggered by engine ignition, CAN or I/O. If the machine is in standby mode for a longer period of time, the controller prevents the vehicle battery from discharging using an integrated battery monitor. The CP150’s design protects against dust, moisture and extreme temperatures, as well as vibration. The controller has IP69K protection and can therefore be washed down with high pressure together with the rest of the machine. Optionally, the CP150 can use POWERLINK to connect via daisy chaining to other components.
