X2 control

X2 control - Integrated CODESYS control

X2 control panels combine industrial HMI and CODESYS PLC functionality in the same compact hardware. Panels range from ultra-compact 4-inch to 15-inch panels designed for demanding applications. Add standard distributed I/Os and you'll get an elegant, scalable and cost-effective solution that's cutting-edge.


Control by CODESYS

Integrated IEC 61131-3 PLC functionality by CODESYS, running on dedicated CPU cores for safe and fast program execution. Just add remote I/Os and for a scalable, cost-effective solution.

Powerful ARM Cortex-A9 processor

Powerful dual or quad core ARM Cortex-A9 processor delivers fast screen changes and program execution in demanding applications.

Configuration freedom

Applications remain elegantly slim with integrated control in the panel. Add remote I/Os to fit your needs, and select between three major fieldbuses – EtherCAT, Modbus RTU and Modbus TCP.

Less risk of error with one system

Two separate PLC and HMI systems mean twice the risk of error. X2 control changes all that. Simply configure your system with WARP and you're done. It’s never been easier to create applications.


EtherCAT as standard

X2 control panels support I/O communication with super-fast EtherCAT as standard.

2 Ethernet ports as standard

X2 control panels have two built-in Ethernet ports as standard for communication with other equipment.

PLC functionality integrated in an HMI

Traditionally PLCs and HMIs have been considered as being two separate systems. This has changed with newer types of HMIs which combine the HMI and PLC functionality by integrating e.g. CODESYS control running on the same powerful processor in the operator panel. The processing capacity of multicore processors are capable of delivering both fast screen changes and program execution securing high-performance in demanding applications. A CODESYS control application in the display is supported by a fully integrated development system providing access to all five IEC 61131-3 programming languages offering versatility in PLC programming. IO signals for the PLC and HMI are connected via distributed IOs and provide a flexible and cost-effective solution.
