One device – many functions

4G/LTE mobile
Control (PLC)
Data Logger
Touch display
Fault warning device

The CX360 combines many functions in one device, from an integrated 4G/LTE modem to a programmable controller (PLC) with a touch display as the user interface to a professional data loggerand alarm signalling unit. Powerful in communication thanks to numerous interfaces and protocols and almost unlimited expandable, it is the ideal device for demanding M2M and IoTapplications.

Future-proof mobile connectivity

With a multiband LTE Cat, the CX360 has a modern and future-proof mobile connection, because LTE will be the nationwide backbone of mobile communication in the long term. Automatic fallback to UMTS / EDGE / GPRS ensures optimal network availability. Voice with IVR (Interactive Voice Response) and DTMF as well as SMS are completing the profile. Thanks to the support of a variety of frequency bands, the CX360 can be usedworldwide.

Performance and security for edge computing

The CX360 is based on a hardened Linux architecture with IEC 61131-3 runtime. The Arm® Cortex®– A5 processor with floating point support, DSP functions and cryptographic acceleration offers more than enough power for your edge computing applications. TLS/SSL support for all important TCP based protocols (e.g. MQTT, SMTP, TCP/IP Sockets) with complete certificate management effectively protects your communication, e.g. with a cloud.

I/O interfaces for all needs

The CX360 has 8 digital inputs (4 of which can be configured as S0), 8 digital solid state outputs (36V / 1.5A), 4 flexibly configurable analog inputs and outputs each. The interface equipment is completely transparently expandable via Modbus modules for the user software and can be extended almost indefinitely.

Versatile communication

In addition to the mobile phone connection, the CX360 has a large number of interfaces: 100 Base-T Ethernet, CAN-2.0, RS-232, RS-485, 1-Wire, WLAN, Bluetooth LE and USB. For easy use of the interfaces, the development environment provides support for a variety of protocols such as TCP/IP, UDP, SMTP, FTP, MQTT, 1-Wire, M-Bus, Modbus (Master and Slave).
