The modular X20 system CPU module series can meet a wide range of needs. It can be used anywhere, from standard applications to demanding applications that meet the highest performance levels. It can even handle loop periods of 100 µs efficiently.
In the communication mode, RS232, Ethernet and USB are standard. Therefore, the network function and the connection of USB devices can be realized without adding extra cost. In addition, each CPU has a POWERLINK interface for real-time communication. Since X20 CPUs are designed for DIN-rail mounting in control cabinets, up to 250 X20 I/O modules - 3000 channels - can be connected directly. This allows for extremely high performance and the benefits of a distributed backplane. The integrated power supply of the CPU with I/O power supply terminals can supply power to the backplane and I/O sensors and actuators without adding other system components. Connecting the I/O directly to the X20 CPU allows you to benefit from a remote backplane, i.e. you can use a single cable to connect I/O stations within 100m or add modules with IP67 protection.
At the same time, customers can choose the following types of controllers according to the application:
Controller with panel operation: integrates PLC, motion control and display. This is what sets the Power Panel product line apart. The performance range, including Intel® Atom™ technology, can cover even the most complex robotics and CNC applications. Operation panels can take on various display sizes, touch screens and/or keypads.
PC-based controller: Using an industrial PC as its hardware platform, with a choice of Box PC or Panel PC, this controller offers a high degree of freedom for distributed machine and system concepts while being compact and perfectly integrated with fieldbus connections with superior performance.
The modular I/O system is versatile and easy to use. With IP20 and IP67 protection grades, any combination inside and outside the control cabinet can be realized. They also support all standard fieldbus systems. The I/O system can be perfectly adapted to machine applications with a completely flexible topology. Standard I/O can be mixed with safety I/O, and distributed intelligence can be embedded in the I/O system, so the distributed layout of the factory automation system can be easily realized, reducing wiring, and improving performance and stability.
Inside the control cabinet
The very compact X20 system can be supplied with a variety of different modules, and the three-piece design facilitates efficient wiring and maintenance.
Outside the control cabinet
The X67 system is compatible with the X20 system and can be combined as required. In addition, the IP67 degree of protection makes them especially suitable for harsh working conditions.
Directly integrated valve terminal
The XV system allows valve terminals to be integrated directly into the I/O network. Thereby reducing the amount of I/O modules and wiring, and also reducing the cost of mechanical manufacturing

Industrial robots are an important part of factory automation. They can be integrated in a general engineering environment for programming and fully integrated with the system, which is conducive to the realization of synchronous movements with microsecond precision. Our continuous research and innovation in factory automation technology enables us to provide one-stop technology application and system integration of robots and related components. The development, diagnosis and maintenance of machine control systems only require one controller and one engineering system. It greatly reduces the entry barrier for OEM manufacturers wishing to implement high-end automated production lines.
Off-the-shelf software solutions can help OEMs implement pick-and-place applications faster. The system not only controls the robot itself, but also handles coordination with other axes, conveyors or tracks. A wide range of robots such as Delta robots, palletizing, and 6-joint robots can be selected, which can easily implement process operations such as high-speed sorting, grouping, sorting, assembly, and packaging of parts and objects.

Using one unified programming tool for all aspects of factory automation minimizes training requirements, consolidates overall integration, and eliminates communication issues between engineering disciplines.
Initiate software development before hardware is complete, reuse software modules across multiple projects, verify functionality through simulation, and debug module-by-module to save time and cost. The programming languages (IEC 61131-3 and ANSI C) in one integrated programming tool provide users with efficient support - and can be combined as required - with a modern architecture and organization of the programming environment. All languages have access to the same data types and use the same libraries and variables. Using the OPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA), it can be directly connected to the plant management layer such as MES systems. The protocol can provide convenient features to make life easier for developers, and as a new market standard with an open architecture, it promises long-term compatibility with a wide range of third-party systems.

OPC UA Industry 4.0 ideal communication protocol
OPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA) is a vendor-independent communication protocol for industrial automation applications. It is based on the client-server principle and enables seamless communication from individual sensors and actuators all the way to the ERP system or the cloud. The protocol is platform independent and has built-in security mechanisms. Since OPC UA is flexible and completely independent, it is seen as an ideal communication protocol for implementing Industry 4.0.
We have always insisted and applied OPC UA, so that all production process data is transmitted through a single protocol, so the loss of interfaces, gateways and related information will be a thing of the past – within a machine, between machines or between machines between cloud databases. The OPC unified architecture (OPC UA) is adopted to realize seamless data connection. The basic workstation, sub-station controller and main station controller are always connected to the factory management MES and WCE.
Control system structure and technical characteristics
Classic control system structure:
A typical factory automation control system generally consists of a master station and a slave station. According to the size of the project and the assembly process, there can be one master station or several master stations, and the slave stations set up corresponding sub-control systems according to the production process.
1) Master station: The industrial display screen, industrial PC and security module constitute the work master station. According to the size of the project, one master station or multiple master stations can be set. The standard industry 4.0 communication protocol OPC UA is used to realize data exchange with the upper-layer MES system, as well as with other master stations and slave stations.
2) Slave station (station): completes the specific process operation and assembly of the station, and consists of HMI operation interface, CPU controller, I/O input and output modules, security modules, robots, vision systems, motion-controlled drives and motors, etc. Main components or actuators.
