The X20CP3586 is a powerful CPU for the X20 system. This CPU is especially useful for applications which require short cycle times, have to process very large amounts of data or carry out floating point operations. It is clocked at 1.6 GHz and has 512 MB DDR2 SDRAM.
USB, Ethernet, POWERLINK and removable CompactFlash are all included as standard features. The standard Ethernet interface is capable of handling communication in the gigabit range. For even more real-time network performance, the onboard POWERLINK interface supports poll response chaining mode (PRC).
The CPU has 3 slots available for X20 communication modules. Various bus and network systems can easily be integrated into the X20 system through the use of communication modules.
