  • Intel Atom 1.6 GHz processor with an additional I/O-processor
  • Onboard Ethernet, POWERLINK with poll response chaining and USB
  • 3 slots for modular interface expansion
  • CompactFlash as removable application memory
  • 512 MB DDR2 SDRAM
  • Controller redundancy possible
  • Fanless

The X20CP3586 is a powerful controller for the X20 system. This controller is especially useful for applications that require short cycle times, have to process very large amounts of data or carry out floating point operations. It is clocked at 1.6 GHz and equipped with 512 MB DDR2 SDRAM.

USB, Ethernet, POWERLINK and removable CompactFlash are all included as standard features. The standard Ethernet interface is capable of handling communication in the gigabit range. For even more real-time network performance, the onboard POWERLINK interface supports poll response chaining mode (PRC).

The controller is equipped with 3 slots available for X20 communication modules. Various bus and network systems can easily be integrated into the X20 system through the use of communication modules.
