Beckhoff at Hannover Messe 2018

Experience the full range of PC-based automation.

Welcome to Hannover Messe 2018: in Hannover, Beckhoff will be presenting all the products and systems in its range of PC-based and EtherCAT-based control technology in five technology forums. Consolidating control intelligence in software, PC-based control incorporates all functions – PLC, motion control, IoT and more – within a single platform. This year’s trade show presence will focus on the integration of image processing, process technology and high-precision measurement technology into the central control system.

TwinCAT Vision: integrates machine vision into automation technology

With TwinCAT Vision, Beckhoff has incorporated comprehensive image processing capabilities into its PC-based control system. TwinCAT software unites a comprehensive range of machine functionality – PLC, motion control, robotics, high-end measurement technology, IoT, HMI and now machine vision – all in an end-to-end engineering and control platform. With this level of integration, TwinCAT Vision eliminates the need for separate vision solutions, often developed by third parties. The software opens up vast innovation potential in machine building – for instance, through consistent real-time synchronisation with other automation tasks or support of advanced track-and-trace solutions.

AMP8000: Distributed Servo Drive system

The new AMP8000 distributed Servo Drive system from Beckhoff breaks new ground for modular machine concepts. The space-saving AMP8000 integrates a servo drive directly into a servomotor in an ultra-compact design. By relocating the power electronics directly into the machine, the control cabinet only needs to house a single coupling module to supply power to multiple servo drives with a single cable via a distribution module. The result: significant savings in terms of cost, space, materials and installation effort.

C6030 Industrial PC: High-end computing power in an ultra-compact design

With highly flexible application options, the new series of ultra-compact Beckhoff Industrial PCs that first launched with the C6015 has proven to be extremely successful. With the addition of the new, ultra-compact C6030 Industrial PC, the advantages of small space requirements, universal applicability and flexible installation are now also available for complex applications with the highest performance requirements. The multi-core computer, with a size of only 132 x 132 x 67 mm, integrates Intel® Core™ i-series processors of the 6th and 7th Generation to provide ample computing power and offer maximum performance with up to 3.6 GHz per core.

System-integrated overcurrent protection in the EtherCAT I/O system

In the new EL922x EtherCAT Terminal series, Beckhoff has directly integrated electronic overcurrent protection to safeguard 24 V DC system components in the highly compact EtherCAT I/O system. In comparison with currently available protection devices, costs and space requirements in control cabinets can be reduced without having to use a conventional, inflexible stand-alone system. With an extended range of settings and process data options, the EL9227 EtherCAT Terminals meet the most diverse requirements and enable transparent system monitoring.
