The IP 65/67-rated unit is easy to install with integrated controller for mounting directly onto a machine, reducing wiring and installation costs.

An integrated Web server and e-mail alarms reduce engineering and maintenance costs for visualization and diagnosis. Diagnostics data can be sent over Ethernet for remote monitoring. The CPX-FEC can also be used in conjunction with a Fieldbus node as a preprocessor in Fieldbus applications, improving reaction time of the controlled system. The FEC performance is especially well-suited where fast or critical processes are concerned. Fieldbus networks include DeviceNet, Profibus, Ethernet I/P and others.
