The new X20 and X67 systems, along with the XV valve manifold connections, can be used as standard I/O components on the well-known DeviceNet, Profibus DP and CANopen fieldbuses, with the master being any PLC system from any manufacturer. The controller system components can be integrated into their programming environment with fieldbus configurators and configured and programmed as usual, using standardized EDS or GSD description files. B&R supports standard Siemens, Schneider, or other fieldbus device configurations, plus the new modular I/O system from Allen Bradley for DeviceNet. The X20 has an exchangeable fieldbus module, a 37.5 mm (1.5-inch)-wide modular bus controller, a bus-independent backplane, a separate supply for I/O and system, and IP67 modules and valve manifold connections.
