CX2043 | Basic CPU module

The CX2043 has an AMD Ryzen™ V1807B CPU with 3.35 GHz and four cores. Due to its high power, the CX2043 has a fan with ball bearings and speed monitoring. The basic configuration of the CX2043 includes two independent Gbit Ethernet interfaces, four USB 3.0 interfaces and a DVI-D interface.

In addition to the CPU and chipset, the basic module also contains the RAM with a capacity of 16 GB. The controller boots from the CFast card. The CPU has an internal 128 kB NOVRAM, which functions as a persistent data memory if no UPS is used.

The unit can optionally be ordered with a fieldbus or serial interface. Other components from the CX2000 family can be connected via the multi-pin terminals on either side. The operating system is Microsoft Windows 10 IoT Enterprise 2019 LTSC. TwinCAT automation software transforms a CX2033 system into a powerful PLC and motion control system that can be operated with or without visualisation.

Up to four modules can be connected to the basic CPU module. The connection order is irrelevant. Internally the modules are connected via PCI Express and can be plugged to the CPU in the field. The power supply for the CPU module comes from a CX2100 power supply module, which is connected on the right-hand side of the CPU. Two further CFast memory card modules (CX2550-0010) can be connected between the power supply unit and the CPU.

The extended operating temperature range between -25 and +60 °C enables application in climatically demanding situations.
