The CAN bus controller meets the CANopen specifications DS 301 and DS 401. Automatic baud rate detection, PDO linking, life/node guarding, emergency objects and other features are supported. The integrated X2X Link connection makes it possible to connect additional modules. AutoMapping automatically detects these modules, whose data are then placed in the I/O map. 16 digital channels can be configured to operate as digital inputs or outputs, which are then individually directed to M8 connections.
The POWERLINK bus controller, also designed with IP67 protection, has two M12 connections for the fieldbus for easy network wiring. An additional M12 serves as the connection for expansion modules; 16 additional digital channels are also provided, which can each be configured to operate as input or output. Depending on the design, these are directed individually to M8 or in pairs to M12 connections.
Both systems offer an integrated T-connector/integrated hub. The integrated connection for local expansion makes it possible to connect any system component from the B&R series X20, X67 and XV.
