B&R is offering a new Compact-S PLC with 512 MB of RAM and 2 GB of internal flash memory. That gives the X20CP0484-1 more than twice the RAM capacity of previous models from the Compact-S series. It is ideal for applications with high requirements for memory and performance.

With a width of only 37.5 mm including the power supply, the X20CP0484-1 is a part of B&R’s compact PLC portfolio. With Ethernet, POWERLINK, USB and RS232, it offers plenty of communication options. An optional CAN interface is also available. With no fans or batteries, the PLC is also maintenance free.

X20 I/O modules can be connected directly to the controller and line up seamlessly. The entire system saves a large amount of space in the control cabinet. Even with its narrow dimensions, the controller has a built-in power supply for itself and the connected I/O modules. There is no need for a separate power supply module.

B&R offers new vertical-mount variant of SuperTrak

B&R’s intelligent track system SuperTrak is now available in a vertical-mount variant. This helps to optimise the output per square meter of floor space. If products are only transported on the upper side of the SuperTrak, the weight is not supported magnetically. Instead the load is transferred directly to the rollers. The shuttles have a much higher payload capacity.

The SuperTrak power electronics have been repositioned, making them readily accessible from the front even when mounted vertically for easy installation. The connections between SuperTrak segments have also been reinforced to ensure mechanical rigidity and maximum stability and reliability in the vertical orientation.

The independently controlled SuperTrak shuttles can be positioned freely to group products of different sizes and create a multi-pack of different beverages or other products. On a vertically mounted SuperTrak system, this type of solution can be implemented on approximately half the floor space for a significant increase in output per square meter.

B&R’s SuperTrak enables advanced manufacturing concepts that deliver flexible, efficient production at any batch size. The track system was designed specifically for 24×7 operation under harsh industrial conditions. It is highly reliable and safe. Individual segments and shuttles can easily be replaced without having to disassemble the track. Downtime for mechanical changeover can often be eliminated entirely. The impact on overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) is substantial.
