Combining flexible PC-based control technology with an EtherNet/IP interface, the CX8095 Embedded PC is a low-cost slave controller with an integrated connection to high-performance EtherCAT I/O technology. In fact, the CX8095 is compatible with the entire range of Beckhoff Bus Terminals and EtherCAT Terminals. Hundreds of available K-bus or E-bus I/O terminals can be used as required. Ideal for daisy-chain cabling, the Embedded PC also acts as a 2-port switch for EtherNet/IP.


The CX8095 is suitable as a stand-alone controller for a wide range of industrial applications in smaller-sized machines or systems and can be used in a distributed fashion as a tie-in to EtherNet/IP systems as a single EtherNet/IP slave. When the optional virtual device (slave interface) is activated, the CX8095 Embedded PC behaves like two EtherNet/IP devices. Accordingly, the CX8095 can process twice the amount of EtherNet/IP process data.
