B&R Automation Control Systems

MA170 SystemMobile and outdoor applications

B&R continues the proven design of the X20 control and I/O system with the XMA product line, making it possible to use reliable B&R technology in mobile and outdoor applications – even in extremely harsh environmental conditions.

Different product variants such as the MA170 system can be configured exactly as needed using XMA modules. The XMA series thus provides the perfect basis for implementing scalable automation solutions that meet every demand – from very simple to high-performance, distributed requirements.

With an IP65 rating, the MA170 provides an extremely robust aluminum housing that also serves as a heat sink for power outputs and allows housing surface temperatures ranging from -40°C to 85°C. The electronics are protected against shock and vibration as well as condensation.

Decentralized networking is as flexible as it is powerful thanks to the standard CAN and Ethernet-based POWERLINK interfaces. To round it all off, the openSAFETY protocol allows the transmission of safety-related data – meeting all PLe safety requirements.

X20 SystemSlice-based I/O and control system

There are many different I/O slice systems. With the X20 system, B&R is setting new standards according to the motto "Perfection in Automation". Born from experience gained from applications all over the world, numerous conversations with customers and with the aim for easier, more economical and secure usage, the X20 system is a new universal solution for any automated task in machine and system manufacturing.


from standard applications up to the highest performance class

The optimally scaled X20 system CPU line satisfies a wide range of needs. It can be implemented anywhere, from standard applications to the most demanding applications with the highest performance requirements. It can even master cycle times of 100 µs.

At B&R, RS232, Ethernet and USB are already standard equipment. Network capability and connecting USB devices are therefore possible at no additional cost. In addition, every CPU has a POWERLINK connection for real-time communication. The possibility to directly connect axes is already integrated. Although the standard features of the CPUs can handle the majority of applications, there are also up to three multipurpose slots for additional interface modules.
