IP 65/67 ultra-compact Industrial PCs
The fanless ultra-compact Industrial PC brings multi-core directly into the machine for complex diagnostic or condition monitoring tasks.
CX20x3 Embedded PC series
The CX20x3 Embedded PC series has an AMD Ryzen™ CPU with 2 or 4 cores.
The C6025 ultra-compact Industrial PC is designed as a fanless device and offers the high Intel® Core™ i computing power despite its small dimensions of 82 x 127 x 50 mm. The Intel® Core™ i U processors with up to four processor cores form the basis for this, because despite their Core™ i properties their power consumption is much lower compared with the other processors from the series.
An alternative operating system – TwinCAT/BSD – will be available for selected Beckhoff Industrial PC platforms. TwinCAT/BSD combines the TwinCAT runtime with FreeBSD, an industrially tested and reliable open source operating system.

The EK1110-0044 EtherCAT EJ Coupler connects the compact Embedded PCs from the CX series and the attached EtherCAT Terminals with the EtherCAT plug-in modules on an application-specific circuit board (signal distribution board).
The 8-channel digital input terminal EL1258-0010 acquires fast binary control signals from the process level and transmits them, in an electrically isolated form, to the controller. The EL1258-0010 is the ground switching version of the EL1258 and offers not only a higher channel density compared to the EL1252, but also higher performance due to the multi-timestamp function. Whereas the EL1252 can accept one edge change with timestamp per bus cycle, the EL1258-0010 offers the possibility to register up to 32 events with timestamps. The reduced timestamp width of 32 bits, which is equivalent to a resolution of 4.29 seconds, does not represent a functional limitation for most applications. The EL1258-0010 is synchronized with other EtherCAT devices through the distributed clocks system, so that events in the whole system can be measured with a uniform timebase.
The EL1899 digital input terminal acquires the binary 24 V DC control signals from the process level and transmits them, in an electrically isolated form, to the higher-level automation unit. The EtherCAT Terminal has 16 channels, whose signal states are indicated by LEDs. The power contacts are connected through. With the EL1899, the reference ground for all inputs is the 24 V DC power contact.
The EL2044 digital output terminal connects the binary 24 V DC control signals from the automation device on to the actuators at the process level with electrical isolation.

The EL3783-0100 EtherCAT Terminal is a power monitoring I/O terminal used for state monitoring of a 3-phase AC voltage system. For each phase, voltage up to 400/690 Vrms and current up to 1 Arms/5 Arms are sampled as instantaneous values with a resolution of 16 bits. The six channels are measured simultaneously based on the EtherCAT oversampling principle with a temporal resolution of up to 50 µs and then passed on to the control system. The control system has sufficient computing power for true RMS or performance calculations and complex custom algorithms based on the measured voltages and currents. Through the oversampling principle, the terminal is able to measure at significantly shorter intervals than the cycle time of the control system. AC and DC parameters must be connected and measured with a common reference potential.

The voltage or input current is digitized with a resolution of 16 bit, and is transmitted (electrically isolated) to the higher-level automation device. The eight input channels have single-ended inputs and possess a common, internal ground potential. The input filter and therefore the conversion times are configurable in a wide range. If required, the inputs can be scaled differently, and automatic limit monitoring is also available.

Depending on the spindle pitch, the AA3033 electric cylinder supplies a peak force of 6250 N to 12,500 N, as well as a maximum speed of 0.5 m/s to 1.0 m/s in a voltage range of 100…480 V AC. The dimensions of the AA3033 correspond in terms of flange size and bolting points to those of a pneumatic cylinder according to ISO 15552 with a plunger diameter of 63 mm. In addition to the simple implementation in existing systems, the standardized periphery of a pneumatic cylinder is thus also simple to use. The advantages with regard to force, dynamics and compactness meet the advantages of servo technology such as controlled positioning, safe holding at a standstill and high efficiency.
The AMP8620 module is directly connected to the mains supply, which minimises the footprint and the cabling effort for the entire machine.

The safe 24 V power supply unit integrated in the power supply module ensures that the logic power supply does not exceed the permissible level. The DC-Link capacitors integrated in the power supply module store the regenerative energy of the entire system and then make it available again for acceleration processes. This ensures the best-possible utilisation of the energy supplied.
