HVAC, HMI and integration platform for building automation based on Beckhoff PLC

CX5010

CX5120, CX5130 and CX5140 are Embedded PCs from the CX5100 series based on the latest Intel® Atom™ generation (Bay Trail). They differ from one another in housing width and CPU type. What is new is that the available Atom™ CPUs now also introduce genuine multi-core technology, extending up to quad-core, into the compact Embedded PC segment. Since the new devices are an extension of the existing CX5000 series, they are equipped with identical hardware interfaces. Two independent Gigabit-capable Ethernet interfaces as well as four USB 2.0 and one DVI-I interface are available. A multitude of further connection options and gateway functions is created by the multi-option interface, which can be pre-equipped ex factory, as well as the I/O level, which can optionally consist of either E-Bus or K-Bus Terminals.

All devices in the series are characterised by low power consumption and fanless design.

Depending on the installed TwinCAT runtime environment, the CX5100 can be used for implementing PLC or PLC/Motion Control projects with or without visualisation. The execution of Motion Control applications with interpolating axis movements is also possible.

The extended operating temperature range from -25 to +60 °C enables the use of the CX5100 Embedded PCs in climatically demanding environments.

Like the CX5000, the CX5100 series has a compact design; a modular device with extension modules like in the CX2000 series is not available.

The order number for CX5100 units can be derived as follows:
