#SPS Bus Terminals for extreme climates

New extended temperature range increases I/O application flexibility

With the extension of the operating temperature range for selected standard Bus Terminals and Couplers to between -20 and +60 °C (-4 and 140 °F) Beckhoff supports applications in extreme climatic zones. The storage temperature of the ET Bus Terminals (Extended Temperature) is specified as an impressive -40 to +85 °C (-40 and 185 °F).

The Beckhoff Bus Terminal system has stood the test of time in machine and building automation applications where a temperature range of 0 to 55 °C (32 and 140 °F) is sufficient. Beckhoff has extended the operating temperature range for selected standard Bus Terminals and Couplers to between -20 and +60 °C (-4 and 140 °F) making them ideal for applications in the “outdoor segment.” Typical fields of application are alternative energy systems such as a wind, solar or tidal power plants, which in some cases have to operate under extreme climatic conditions.

The I/O terminals selected for the extended temperature range cover the most common areas of application and a wide range of signal types. As an added benefit to users, the components for the extended temperature range are available at the same price as the standard Bus Terminals. The ET Bus Terminals may even enable users to save additional costs for reducing or eliminating the heating and air-conditioning requirements in the control platform. The CX5000 series Embedded PCs with direct I/O connection are also designed for this extended temperature range. This represents a complete controller and I/O solution for extreme environments.
