This computer fits performance into a compact, $500 model. It has a 100 MB Ethernet connection, and runs on a 266 MHz Intel® IXP420 CPU with XScale® technology. It uses DIN rail mounting for easy cabinet installation. It works well with motion control and PLC applications, using Ethernet-compatible Beckhoff I/O Bus Terminals or high-speed EtherCAT I/O terminals. It runs on Microsoft Windows CE, using Beckhoff's TwinCAT automation software. It boots from internal flash memory, needs no internal fan, and measures 47 × 100 × 91 mm in basic configuration. It comes with two RJ 45 sockets connected to an integrated switch, allowing multiple models to be wired together more easily. DV/USB, RS232, RS422/RS485 or compact Flash module interfaces are also available.
