Beckhoff at Motek 2016

Discover the potential of Industrie 4.0 and IoT!

Applications such as big data, data mining and condition monitoring provide a basis for new automation solutions that enable you to significantly increase the competitiveness of your machines or your products.
At Motek 2016, Beckhoff will show you how to implement simple and standardised cloud-based automation concepts in assembly and handling technology: with TwinCAT Analytics and TwinCAT IoT. Other highlights of our presentation will be EtherCAT P, the one cable solution for the field level, and a live demo application of our linear XTS transport system with cloud connection.

Fast, easy, expandable: TwinCAT HMI.

With TwinCAT HMI software, Beckhoff has ushered in the next generation of HMIs. Instead of using proprietary systems for engineering and communications Beckhoff relies on IT standards such as Visual Studio® for engineering, HTML5 for design, plus TLS for secure communications. The user interface runs on any HTML5-enabled browser, regardless of operating system, resolution or display type. TwinCAT HMI

Flexibility 4.0 for Industrie 4.0: with XTS

Flexibility 4.0 for Industrie 4.0: with XTS

How does automation deal with today’s challenges of increasing product variety coupled with growing degrees of individualisation, right down to lot sizes of 1? These highly complex production requirements call for dynamic and uncomplicated solutions: The linear transport system (XTS) from Beckhoff transports individual products highly dynamically to their designated processing stations, so facilitating highly flexible production in relation to formats, lot sizes and processes. Products and formats can be adapted during ongoing operation at the touch of a button. The advantage to the user: Flexibility 4.0. XTS

TwinCAT: The platform for IoT and Industrie 4.0

TwinCAT: The platform for IoT and Industrie 4.0

In addition to PLC, Motion Control and measurement technology, TwinCAT engineering and control software also incorporates modules for Industrie 4.0 and IoT applications. TwinCAT IoT facilitates secure communication via standard protocols such as AMQP, MQTT and OPC UA. Fast and easy to configure, you can use TwinCAT IoT to access the specific data and communications services of public or local cloud systems. And this is where TwinCAT Analytics comes in. In addition to recording, storing and analysing data it can be used to optimise your machines without interrupting current production processes and also for predictive maintenance, significantly increasing your systems’ performance and availability.

One Cable Automation for the field level: EtherCAT P.

EtherCAT P integrates EtherCAT communication and power supply for system and peripherals into a single cable. In addition, EtherCAT P enables the transmission of power directly via the subscribers. The winning combination of high performance and flexibility and the unlimited choice of topologies inherent to EtherCAT, makes this one-cable solution the optimal bus system for sensors, actuators and measuring technology.
