Beckhoff supplies industrial PCs suitable for a variety of applications. Components based on open standards and robust construction make Beckhoff industrial PCs equipped for all control requirements.
At the level of industrial PCâ€™s, the brand offers the following solutions:
Beckhoff offers the right technology for all types of fieldbus, providing a complete range of components for all I/O systems. These modules with IP20 protection class and Fieldbus Box modules, with IP67 protection, are a complete solution for all types of signals.
In addition to conventional fieldbus-based I/O systems, Beckhoff offers a full range of EtherCAT I/O for the EtherCAT high-speed fieldbus, based on EtherCAT and EtherCAT Box terminals.
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:
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 MatlabÂ® / SimulinkÂ® programming languages are available, as well as IEC 61131-3.
TwinCAT software is available in the following versions:
