Remote I/O expansion for mobile automation
The new module with a new compact housing is used in combination with an X90 controller for remote I/O expansion. The multifunction inputs and outputs make the X90BC124.32 very versatile. Functions such as digital I/O or PWM outputs are configured in the control application using the B&R Automation Studio development environment.

Real-time I/O expansion
When connecting high-end I/O in real time, multiple X90 controllers can be integrated via POWERLINK. B&R offers a hub for this purpose, which is designed for use in mobile equipment.
The X67HB8880.L12 Ethernet hub is a standalone solution that can be used universally as a Level 2 hub in standard Ethernet or POWERLINK networks. Each port is equipped with a Link/Collision and Rx LED. In addition, IP67 protection makes them especially well-suited for harsh environmental conditions.
