Faced with unrelenting demands for higher productivity, the agricultural and construction industries are turning to increasingly automated and networked machinery. B&R solutions allow automation concepts for construction equipment and municipal vehicles to be implemented easier than ever. Customers benefit from an easy-to-use development environment, high-performance real-time operating system and ready-made software components.
The modular X90 control and I/O system brings all the functionality of a B&R automation solution to mobile machinery. All products in the X90 family are designed for use in harsh industrial environments. They can handle operating temperatures from -40 to +85°C (housing surface) and are resistant to vibration, shock up to 50 g, salt, UV light and oil. The housing provides IP69K protection.
The X90 system fits seamlessly into the other systems offered by B&R. With the Automation Studio development tool and the real-time Automation Runtime operating system, manufacturers of mobile machinery can take advantage of over 35 years of expertise in control technology. You can therefore benefit from extensive diagnostics and simulation options that are implemented directly in the system. A web-based HTML5 HMI solution and interfaces to higher-level systems are also available.
- Flexible and modular
- For harsh environments
- Part of an extensive family of products
B&R hardware and software are completely decoupled. As a result, application software is developed once and can then be reused across multiple platforms and hardware generations. Together with guaranteed long-term availability of all hardware components, this means maximum security for your investment.
B&R is expanding its X90 control and I/O system to include an I/O module for connecting distributed sensors and actuators on mobile equipment.
The modular X90 control and I/O system can now also be equipped with condition monitoring functions.
