The CX5000 series devices are DIN rail-mountable, fanless Embedded PCs with direct connection for Beckhoff Bus Terminals or EtherCAT Terminals. In contrast to the other CX device families, the CX5000 series has a fixed, non-expandable number of system interfaces. The housing design for this series is optimised for robustness and compactness. No modular expandability for the left-hand side is provided. However, EtherCAT integration offers a wide range of expansion capability. Further master/slave fieldbus connections (PROFIBUS, CANopen, DeviceNet) or communication interfaces (RS232, RS422/RS485) and all other signal types accessible via EtherCAT can be directly connected as EtherCAT Terminals.
Two independent Gigabit Ethernet ports and four USB 2.0 interfaces are available. A Beckhoff Control Panel or a standard DVI monitor can be connected to the DVI-D interface. A serial port (RS232/RS422/RS485) or a fieldbus connection with master or slave function can be added as an optional interface as required.
An interchangeable Compact Flash card located behind a flap that is accessible from outside is used as boot and storage medium. The built-in capacitive 1-second UPS ensures secure backup of persistent application data on the Compact Flash card. Date and time are buffered via a replaceable battery.
The operating system can be Windows CE or Windows XP Embedded. The TwinCAT automation software transforms a CX5000 system into a powerful PLC and Motion Control system that can be operated with or without visualisation.
