Individual requirements can be met easily with a wide range of powerful CPUs based on industrial (Pentium) processors and with an extensive range of I/O modules. Real-time bus systems enable the automation to be decentralized without any loss of performance. 

The M200 controller perfectly combines the flexibility of a PC-based controller with the reliability of industrial hardware platforms. Designed for the toughest ambient conditions, they guarantee fail-safe operation with fan-less installation from -40 °C up to an ambient temperature of +70 °C. 

State-of-the-art system architecture designed for seamless networking capability enables the M200 to be integrated easily in peripheral controller and system components. Real-time Ethernet permits real-time controller networking and supports all currently available fieldbus systems. It enables external components to be connected via standard interfaces.

The M100 series is the perfect system extension for decentralized use in combination with the Bachmann M200 series.
