BX controller fills the gap for low- to mid-range machine control. Customers can program with one open software package, choose from more than 100 I/O signals and stock one type of I/O device for various machine types. All controllers use the same bus terminal I/O modules and are programmed with the same TwinCAT IEC 1131-3 PLC and Motion software. Features include standard fieldbus port for Profibus, DeviceNet, Ethernet TCP/IP, CANopen and RS-232/RS-485; built-in SSB bus for peer-to-peer and HMI communications; real-time clock; and multi-tasking capability.
