openSAFETY control panels

One cable for everything No more hard wiring with openSAFETY control panels


openSAFETY control panels from B&R allow safety data to be transferred via the bus system

New openSAFETY control panels from B&R allow safe data exchange over the bus system. The integrated openSAFETY interface renders the hard wiring of E-stop, operating mode and start buttons obsolete.

6U CompactPCI Serial Mesh 10 Gigabit Ethernet processor board

Kontron 6U CompactPCI processor board and chassis innovation provide an industry first with 10 GbE system throughput

CompactPCI Serial Mesh (based on PICMG 2.20) performance increases for data-intensive, high-performance applications

As part of its 'High-Speed CompactPCI Initiative', Kontron is launched the world's first 6U CompactPCI Serial Mesh 10 Gigabit Ethernet processor board together with a compliant chassis at the Embedded World 2013 trade show (hall 1, stand 460). For the first time, a CompactPCI system supports 10 Gigabit Ethernet and PCIe over backplane in addition to the common interfaces such as PICMG 2.16, SATA and HDMI. The Kontron CompactPCI processor board CP6004X-SA is based on the latest generation Quad-Core Intel Core processor and offers high computing power and performance-per-watt, which really comes into its own in the CP-RAPID3 chassis with full-mesh fabric configuration.


6U CompactPCI board with 4th generation Intel Core processors

Kontron introduced its latest 6U CompactPCI CPU board alongside the launch of the 4th generation Intel Core processors. The Kontron CP6005-SA, featuring the Intel QM87 Express chipset, is scalable up to the Intel Core i7-4700EQ processor with up to 4x 2.4 GHz (3.4 GHz in turbo mode). The CPU board excels with its outstanding performance density and data throughput over the backplane. 

  • Applications with high performance demands benefit from state-of-the-art processor efficiency and optionally PCIe 3.0 and
  • 2x 10 Gigabit Ethernet over backplane, while still PICMG 2.16 compliant
