is a high-performance system for factory automation. It consists of individual function modules that can be used to create a modular, compact and very flexible system. Depending on the module combination, the system can be used as a purely remote I/O system or as a (centralised or decentralised) control system for factory or process automation.
CPX-E control units are designed as EtherCAT master controllers and motion controllers. These are high-performance control units which can be used both for extensive PLC functions and, in the Motion Control M1 variant, also for multi-axis applications with interpolation.
In addition to comprehensive PLC functions and multi-axis applications with interpolation, the CPX-E can be the heart of a EtherCAT® system. Different bus modules are available for using it as a compact and low-cost remote I/O.
