Feeding the USB port out of the control cabinet

By Chemical Engineering |

Beckhoff Automation

With the new CU8210-M001 cabinet dome (photo), the USB port of an Industrial PC can be fed out of the control cabinet and still be well protected, establishing reliable and powerful wireless connections to the control computer without having to use attenuation-prone antenna cables. When combined with the appropriate CU8210-D00x USB 2.0 sticks, which are available for WLAN or 4G mobile communication, the cabinet domes support efficient and globally usable wireless solutions for PC-based control technology. The cabinet dome is designed to house industrial WLAN and mobile communication components and complies with IP 66 protection rating in the installed state. The components inside the housing dome, such as the USB 2.0 sticks for wireless communication, are completely protected against physical contact, dust, spray water and water jets. — Beckhoff Automation GmbH & Co.
