ET Bus Terminals for use in Extreme Climates

ET Bus Terminals for use in Extreme Climates

Beckhoff Automation's new Extended Temperature Bus Terminals offer an extension of the operating temperature range for selected standard Bus Terminals and Couplers to between -4 and 140F (-20 and +60 C) to support demanding applications in extreme climatic zones. The storage temperature range of the ET Bus Terminals is -40 to 185 degrees F (-40 to +85 degrees C).

With the broadened operating temperature range for selected standard Bus Terminals and Couplers, the ET Terminals are useful for "outdoor applications." Typical fields of use include alternative energy systems such as wind, solar or tidal power plants. The I/O terminals selected for the extended temperature range cover the most common areas of application and a wide range of signal types. The Beckhoff CX5000 series Embedded PCs with direct I/O connection and low-heat dissipation are also designed for this extended temperature range. Via Beckhoff's K-bus technology, the new ET Bus Terminals are compatible with the entire Bus Terminal product range and can function with over 15 fieldbus networks and protocols.
