In time for the 30th anniversary of PC-based control technology from Beckhoff, These devices are an extension of the CX series Embedded PCs for DIN rail mounting with directly connected I/O components. Intel classes its Xeon D-type CPUs as ‘mid-range server’ CPUs. This explains how they constitute the link between client CPUs and genuine Xeon server CPUs, which – unlike Xeon D CPUs – can be used to set up multiple CPU systems with NUMA (Non-Uniform Memory Access) architecture.
The CX series devices equipped with the new Intel Xeon CPUs are high-performance industrial control systems that are modular, flexible, robust, versatile and available for the long term. Their CPUs, each with up to 12 cores, and their separate graphics hardware, enable these devices to offer unprecedented processing power on DIN rail.
• The introduction of a new generation of Industrial PCs in the high-end performance segment, coincides with Beckhoff’s 30th anniversary of PC-based technology.
• The new devices are an extension of the CX series Embedded PCs for DIN rail mounting with directly connected I/O components.
• These devices offer unprecedented processing power on DIN rail.
