Beckhoff at ISE 2016

Enabling your creativity: PC-based control.

Welcome to ISE, the leading European trade show for audio, lighting, event and communication technology. PC-based control technology from Beckhoff enables optimum integration of media technology, lighting control, building automation and control logic. The consistent, highly scalable automation platform offers all relevant interfaces for integrating AV multimedia and lighting systems. You can rely on our proven control technology to enable your creative ideas without limits – across the fields of media technology, building automation, stage technology, in entertainment parks or “unique applications”.

Integrated interfaces for media technology

Integrated interfaces for media technology

In addition to versatile interfaces and support of protocols for media and building services such as DALI, DMX, Art-Net™, BACnet, SMI, EnOcean and SMPTE Timecode, with OCA Beckhoff has now integrated a further protocol in its control platform. OCA can be used for remote control of professional audio systems. OCA is supported by many major manufacturers in the field of media technology, including d&b audiotechnik.

PC-based control: the integrated control solution for all systems in media, building and stage technology

Our robust Industrial PCs with finely scalable performance are ideally suited for both central or local control of lighting, AV and media equipment, building automation or special effects in entertainment and “unique applications”. TwinCAT automation software is used for central or local control of all services.

The Beckhoff I/O system logs data from all sensors and actuators. In addition to integration of DMX, EIB/KNX, DALI, LON and Dimmer, various interfaces for AV multimedia systems are available.

Beckhoff offers a wide range of scalable drive components for motion control applications, such as movement of show elements or kinetic installations.

EtherCAT P – ultra-fast communication and power in one cable

EtherCAT P is the single-cable solution for the field level, combining communication and power supply in a 4-wire standard Ethernet cable. All the benefits of EtherCAT are retained, such as the free topology, high speed, optimum bandwidth utilisation, the processing of telegrams on the fly, highly precise synchronisation, extensive diagnostics, etc.

The advantages are obvious:

  • Elimination of separate supply cables
  • Reduction of material and assembly costs
  • Minimisation of installation space in drag chains, control cabinets and machines
  • Outstanding EtherCAT performance at low connection costs

The new price-performance class for PC-based control technology

The new price-performance class for PC-based control technology

PC-based control technology from Beckhoff can be finely scaled in both hardware and software and thus tailored precisely to the individual application. Beckhoff has extended its IPC entry-level range with two high-performance devices for the cost-sensitive lower and medium performance range: the C6905 control cabinet PC and the CP6706 Panel PC with Intel® Atom™ multi-core CPU, equipped with one, two or four processor cores. A wide range of active and passive multi-touch panels with display sizes from 7 to 24 inches offers users maximum diversity and flexibility. Industrial PCs
