    In combination with the Motion Control functions/solutions offered by TwinCAT automation software, Beckhoff Drive Technology represents an advanced and complete drive system. Beckhoff's PC-based drive technology is ideal for single and multiple axis positioning tasks with highly dynamic requirements. The AX5000 Servo Drive series and the AX8000 multi-axis servo-system with EtherCAT communication offer maximum performance and energy.

    One-cable technology (OCT) servomotors, which combine power and feedback in a standard motor cable, reduce material costs and commissioning.

    The XTS (eXtended Transport System) drive system replaces classic mechanical systems with innovative mechatronics.

    The range of drive technology products includes:

  • Automation software

    Beckhoff offers comprehensive system solutions in different performance classes for all automation areas. Beckhoff's control technology is scalable - from high-performance industrial PCs to mini PLCs - and can be precisely matched to its application. TwinCAT automation software integrates real-time control with PLC, NC and CNC functions into a single product. All Beckhoff controllers are programmed using TwinCAT, in accordance with the globally recognised IEC 61131-3 programming standard. In the version of TwinCAT 3, C / C ++ and Matlab® / Simulink® programming languages are available, as well as IEC 61131-3.

    TwinCAT software is available in the following versions:
