B&R has considerably increased the temperature range of its X20 and X67 control and I/O systems. This is made possible by the special industrial temperature electronic components installed in the modules. Both the X20 modules with IP20 protection and the X67 modules with IP67 protection function reliably at temperatures from -25 to +60°C, and these modules can be stored at even more extreme temperatures ranging from -40 to +85°C.
Because of the increased temperature range, the controllers and I/O modules are well suited for an even wider area of application. Characterized by their robustness and stability, they provide proof of the extremely high quality of the industrial temperature electronic components that are being used.
In order to ensure reliable operation of the X20 and X67 CPUs, B&R uses special CompactFlash cards in the PLCs that can withstand these extreme temperatures.
