Beckhoff fanless CX5100 Embedded PC series features single, dual or quad-core Atom CPUs.
Beckhoff Automation unveiled its medium-performance CX5100 series of fanless embedded PC controllers with Intel Atom multi-core CPUs. The processors’ 22-nm technology maintains thermal balance and extended operating temperature range. The DIN rail-mountable series is offered in three different processor and housing sizes including the CX5120 (single-core, 1.46 GHz Atom CPU); CX5130 (1.75 GHz, dual-core); and CX5140 (1.91 GHz, quad-core).
The basic interface equipment corresponds to that of Beckhoff’s CX5000 devices: automatic recognition of K-Bus I/O or EtherCAT Terminals; two independent Gigabit-capable Ethernet interfaces, four USB 2.0 ports; a DVI-I interface and a “multi-option” interface to support a variety of fieldbus systems. The series offers an extended operating temperature range of -25 to +60 °C.
