B&R: Controllers and modules for harsh environments

B&R’s X20c series of compact controllers and I/O modules are protected against condensation and corrosive gases by a special coating on the electronics module, making them suitable for use in corrosive environmental conditions.

The effectiveness of protection against condensation is checked using the test specified in BMW GS 95011-4, and protection against corrosive gases using the 4-part corrosive gas tests specified in EN 60068-2-6, test method 4. The tests are carried out in a fully accredited in-house testing laboratory and in certified external testing facilities where B&R places even higher demands on the modules than what is specified in the standards, and also subjects equipment to additional, more stringent testing.

The X20 modules with coated circuit boards are completely compatible with existing models with respect to functionality. The operating temperature range for all X20 modules is -25°C to +60°C. The X20 System has also received certification for maritime applications from Germanischer Lloyd (GL).
