Each controller comes equipped with 32 built-in digital and analog I/O channels and an x86 processor as standard features. The controllers are available with two different CPU frequencies: 200 MHz and 400 MHz. Depending on the variant, there is up to 256 MB RAM and 16 kB nonvolatile onboard RAM. A built-in flash drive with up to 4 GB is available for application and data storage. All CPUs are equipped with Ethernet, USB and one RS232 interface. In both performance classes, integrated Powerlink and CAN interfaces are also available. If additional fieldbus connections are needed, all CPUs can be upgraded with an interface module from the standard X20 product portfolio. The CPUs do not require fans or batteries, making them maintenance-free.
