B&R paid special attention to the requirements for machine and system manufacturing automation when developing this new product. Moreover the X20 System should have been the most compact automation product available on the market. This compactness – combined with extremely modular and flexible construction – guarantees optimal cost-effectiveness for the user.
Space-saving, simple and inexpensive to expand at any time, easy to preassemble and mount, and simple to service, these are some of the useful advantages of this system.
First I/O system with three-part modularity
Three basic elements result in one module: terminal block – electronic module – bus module.
This allows different assembly variations on a basic platform.
Intelligent development and runtime software in Automation Studio supports the many variations. The application program automatically detects the construction of the system based on the configuration of the modules being used and loads only the program modules and functions required for the respective variation.
