To add to the very successful ESX® controller family, STW GmbH has developed the ESX®-3XL, a controller for the rugged world of off-highway vehicles and mobile machines.
The ESX®-3XL provides up to 124 software configurable inputs and outputs. Due to the modular design, 72 of the 124 inputs and outputs can be customized and configured to create an optimal match for any application. The base version, with 52 inputs and outputs, provides 4 CAN interfaces and 1 RS232 serial interface. More CAN or RS232 interfaces, as well as other communication interfaces like Flexray or Ethernet can be added easily. The processor system of the ESX®-3XL, the 150 MHz TC1796 from Infineon, contains 4 MB of RAM and 6 MB of Flash. A buzzer for audio alarms, and LEDs for status indication help troubleshoot the system without any special software tools.
The system is designed to enable safety related applications according to SIL2/ISO 61508. Safety features are supervised and controlled by a separate, independent microcontroller. Like all other ESX® controllers, the ESX®-3XL comes with a license-free BIOS, for easier and faster programming. The customers’ software can be developed in C, C++ or CoDeSys. STW provides a low-cost tool chain and a large selection of software-libraries.
