All your needs under control

Fast processing, modular system for drive units, I/O and fieldbus, free and ergonomic space for application functions integration, compact dimensions. All you need under control.

High processing power

The C5G uses the latest generation of industrial PC’s APC820 with Core2 Duo technology CPU which is capable of obtaining high performances with low energetic consumption.

Energy saving

  • Lowest consumption in stand by, low consumption during operations
  • Cooling system proportional to control unit’s operations
  • Energy network recover system with a high dynamic content program

Flexibility and reliability

The new generation of field busses based on Hilscher technology, integrated by B&R in their remote I/O X20 family, guarantees a flexible and reliable interface in every customer application. Modular interfaces are available, such as digital I/O, analog I/O and for many kinds of position transducer encoder, resolver, etc.


Safe robot controller models allow a safety rated management of the robot motion (joint or cartesian mode) and speed through sensors, offering advanatges in terms of smaller layouts and absence of physical fences. We provide the safety of your automatic cell without affecting your productivity.
